Super Rugby Aotearoa week eight odds and fixture

The Chiefs 21–17 defeat at the hands of the Blues was their seventh successive loss, a club record that eclipses six game losing streaks in the 1998-99 and 2008-09 seasons.
The Crusaders meanwhile have a game in hand and sit two points clear at the top of the Super Rugby NZ ladder, despite losing their first game to the Hurricanes 32-34 in a thriller at Orangetheory Stadium.
The rugby bookmakers have priced the Crusaders at $1.29 to defeat the Chiefs, who are not getting much support at $3.75.
On Sunday, the Highlanders will clash with the Blues, who have well and truly established themselves as a title threat.
The Highlanders are coming off the bye but were far from convincing in a narrow win over the Chiefs a fortnight ago, but are likely to regain several players from injury layoffs.
The Blues will be the hot favourite at kickoff with rugby betting sites pricing them around the $2.50 mark to cause an upset, while the Blues are paying $1.56.
