Amazulu v Polokwane City
Match Result Betting
Amazulu 53/20 Draw 37/20 Polokwane City 13/10
Amazulu are 6 matches without a win but 3 of those matches were home fixtures which ended all square. Whilst they continue to struggle on their travels Amazulu remain unbeaten at home with 2 wins and 3 draws but the 6 point deduction they picked up earlier in the season means they are bottom of the log with just 3 points against their name.
Polokwane’s unbeaten 7 match run in the league came to an end at home to Pirates in midweek. They were beaten 2-1 by the Bucs and they now hit the road again having won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their previous away fixtures. Having already won 1-0 at Chiefs and Wits they boast useful away form whilst earlier in the season they drew 1-1 at Arrows and lost 1-0 at Leopards.
This will be a good test of character for Polokwane after their impressive run came to an end in midweek. However Amazulu have been pretty useful at home and if they are to claw back the points deficit that threatens their top flight status this is the sort of game they need to win.
Amazulu draw no bet is the play.
Bet: Amazulu draw no bet at 27/20
Cape Town City v Black Leopards
Match Result Betting
Cape Town City 8/10 Draw 24/10 Black Leopards 79/20
City snapped a 7 match run without a league win when they beat Amazulu 3-0 in a home fixture last time out. That was their first Absa Premiership victory since the opening weekend of the season when they saw off Supersport 2-0 in Cape Town. City now have 10 points from 9 games.
Leopards went down 1-0 at Kaizer Chiefs in midweek and they have 9 points from 10 matches. Their 2 wins this season came in home fixtures, 1-0 victories against Baroka and Polokwane. Away from home earlier in the campaign they drew at 2-2 at Highlands and Chippa and lost at Supersport (4-0) and Golden Arrows (1-0).
City have been hard to catch right this season so I would be nervous about taking odds on even though Leopards away form is nothing to write home about. A chance is taken on the draw.
Bet: Match result draw at 24/10
