Betting Preview 10 May 2019 - Value in backing Crusaders to bounce back against Bulls
Super Rugby champions to return to winning ways at Loftus Versfeld

.There are three exciting Super Rugby fixtures on the cards this Friday with the Blues hosting the Hurrcianes in a New Zealand derby, the Reds visiting the Rebels in an all-Aussie affair, and the Crusaders visiting the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld. I believe the best match to bet on is the evening kick-off in Pretoria.
Bulls vs. Crusaders Betting Tips and Options (19:10 SAST)
The South African Conference's top team hosts the number one in New Zealand at Loftus. The Crusaders have, however, had a far superior season to the men from Pretoria. The Bulls have 28 points from 10 matches whilst the Crusaders have 42 from 11.
The men from Christchurch have only lost four matches since the start of the 2017 season and won the Super Rugby title both that year and the following one. They have proven to be a formidable force time and time again both at home and on the road.
Although the Crusaders drew to the Sharks in their last match, they were without key All Blacks such as Ryan Crotty, Sam Whitelock, Richie Mo'unga and David Havili. Crotty, Mo'unga and Havili are back in the starting XV for the visit to Pretoria.
The Crusaders should be too strong for the bulls and my advice is to back them in the -8.5 handicap at 1.90 (via Hollywoodbets). If you would prefer to avoid the handicap markets, here are some other betting options for you:
