Time to put your money where your mouth is as our resident Tipster takes a look at the weekend's big games.
Australia v British and Irish Lions
With most of us missing the chance to make some money by betting on the British and Irish Lions on either the biggest selection howler or masterstroke of recent times (the omission of superstar Brian O'Driscoll from the Lions side), looking for a decent punt on the last Test of such a close series is a pretty forlorn task.
You'd be forgiven for thinking you'd have better chances on betting on the first Lion to release a ruthless expose on how the Welsh boyos had to carry their lazy and useless English, Irish and Scots (yes, there are Scotsmen out there) throughout the tour.
The other attraction would be to bet on Wallaby skipper James Horwill's pre-match coin toss, will he go for 'heads'?
However, the key here is turning the closeness of the series to your advantage.
Looking at the evidence, it's been a tightly fought contest and three points separate the sides. Five tries only in two Tests, and three of those by the Aussies. Both of the Lions efforts have been opportunistic.
Then factor in it's effectively Wales versus Australia (and we know the track record there - Australia eight wins from the last eight game!), that Sam Warburton has limped off into oblivion and James Horwill has emerged through the mist of controversy, and you'll see that the slim odds are stacking in the Wallabies' favour.
There's still some gems to be had.
For Australia, Israel Folau has run rings around the Lions defence in both Tests, and like George North, the one threatening Lions back, the power punt at 10/1 on either for the first try looks promising. A motivated George Smith, in his Wallaby swansong, also provides a real speculative gamble at 45/1 to cross the white wash first in a Wallaby win.
With power of Irish Lion Sean O'Brien shoring up what's been a pretty impotent back row so far, and with the behemoth presence of Cardiff's Jamie Roberts returning to the midfield, both are attractive value at 8/1 and 13/2 respectively as anytime try scorers.
If you believe the Lions will do it, it'll be close, so the alternative margin bet from Paddy Power for a win by 1-12 points at 7/4 looks stellar by comparison to other options, with the series so finely matched.
Our fancy, however, is the delicious social media special of Lions' full-back Halfpenny to score all the Lions points at 7/2. Being cynical, the only threat on that horizon appears to be a late substitution, and Owen Farrell sliding a penalty over in the dying minutes.
Although we don't like sitting on the fence, with the series tighter than a drum, a covering gamble on the draw at 20/1 looks pretty appealing too!
With the media focus on Sydney, those looking for value for money may look deeper into Round 19 of Super Rugby.
Bulls v Sharks
A very close one to call over at Loftus Versfeld but home advantage should steer the Bulls to a close win. We like the offer of the hosts to win by 1-12 points at 2.65
Kings v Stormers
In Port Elizabeth, the beleaguered Kings meet the Stormers in their final home game of the season. Four weeks ago the Stormers knew they needed to win their last five fixtures to have any hopes of making the playoffs. They have since won three straight. The Stormers defence continues to rain down on the opposition as they kept the Cheetahs to just 3 points last week. However, if you want to make money, you need to be brave and we'd pick the Stormers in the head-to-head and consider taking the Kings +18.5 at 1.93
Cheetahs v Blues
The history of this fixture shows home advantage counts. The last two games between these protagonists have been tight, so our take is the Cheetahs at 1-12 at 2.70. The other option is to follow the high-scoring nature of this fixture, and explore the over/under market, which looks pretty enticing.
Hurricanes v Highlanders
The Hurricanes seem to have run out of puff in recent weeks, losing five times in their last six run outs, a complete turn around of their early season form, winning five from six. With the Highlanders shorn of the talismanic locks of Ma'a Nonu, their dismal season continues. Both teams come into this game with four losses from their last five, but the Hurricanes have undoubtedly been the better team.
We therefore take the Hurricanes by 1-12 at the attractive odds of 2.65.
Crusaders v Chiefs
Easily the most exciting fixture of Round 19, both teams come into the match with six wins from seven. The Chiefs scalped the Crusaders in Round 5, and despite both sides having injury issues, Dan Carter's return to action has galvanised the Crusaders.
The Chiefs have not yet lost to a fellow Kiwi side this year, so the fixture is a tight one to call. The head to head market reflects this, so a points flutter seems the best option, and we tip the Crusaders by 1-12 at 2.75.
It's a tough market this week so pick your bets wisely, and our advice is stay away from the head to head market and go for margin bets. See you next week.
