Here's where the TAB's Shark thinks the money is in a massive weekend of Super Rugby.

Best Bet

Bulls v Jaguares - Points Start: Bulls -6.5 ($1.90)

We're more than happy to take on the Jaguares outside Buenos Aires.

The Argentinians have lost five straight on the road, failing to cover a single spread in that time, and have conceded 35 or more in all but one of those games.

The Bulls, on the other hand, have covered seven of nine at Loftus and have never lost to the Jaguares on home soil.


Next Best

Crusaders v Brumbies - Points Start: Crusaders -26.5 ($1.90)

The only question that needs to be answered here is: How many points?

We all know the Crusaders are going to win and we all know it's going to be by plenty.

The Crusaders have scored an average of 42 points per game over their last seven home games and the Brumbies have given up at least 29 in each away game this season so we can definitely see the 'Saders going past the half-century if they're on song.

Best Roughie

Highlanders v Hurricanes - Head to Head: Highlanders ($2.16)

Neither side's form line inspires a lot of confidence heading into this clash but I am very happy to back the Highlanders on the back of their record at home, especially given they're somehow underdogs for this clash.


The 'Canes have only won one of their last seven away from home while the Southerners thrive under the roof at Forsyth Barr and haven't lost there in over two years.

The home side's mounting injury toll is a concern, especially the absence of Aaron Smith who has really stepped up in the absence of Lima Sopoaga this season, but the 'Landers are starting mostly the same pack that dominated the Hurricanes a month ago and their dominance up front will be enough to grind out a victory.

Best Real Wide

Blues v Waratahs - Winning Team & Margin (10pt): Blues 11-20 ($4.00)

The Blues have been very good at Eden Park all season, covering each of their three games at the venue in 2019, while the Waratahs have covered just two of their last six road games.

NSW have brought most of their big guns back into the starting XV after resting a few against the Sunwolves but if the Blues can repeat their defensive performance from last Saturday they'll struggle to score too many points.

The Waratahs' poor record in NZ will continue here.
