South Africa v British & Irish Lions Betting Tips – 3rd Test

The stage is set for the 3<sup>rd</sup> and deciding Test between the Springboks and the British &amp; Irish Lions when they scrum down in Cape Town on Saturday. In what is expected to be a monumental battle, both sides are going to have to take themselves to “dark places” if they are to make history and win the series. The Boks bounced back with a 27-9 victory in the 2<sup>nd</sup> Test, a performance that was built on the physical DNA we have come to know from South African rugby, and the hosts will want to replicate the 2009 team that clinched the series, while holding the coveted title of World Champions, come the final whistle on Saturday. Tipsters Form Labs set the scene with their betting tips ahead of the much-anticipated clash.

Boks Level The Series

The Test series is now all-square after South Africa impressively won 29-9 last weekend. It was an extremely fiery affair as both teams looked to muscle past one another and the dominance in the scrum eventually helped the hosts prevail. That sets up what promises to be a thrilling series decider this Saturday.

It was a complete role reversal to the first Test, as the Lion went in at the break ahead before the Springboks came out firing on all cylinders in the second half.

Changes For Both Sides

That has led to Warren Gatland opting to make six changes for this next match in what will feel ‘like a cup final’, as Liam Williams and Josh Adams come into help out in the back three with the likely aerial bombardment, while Bundee Aki, Ali Price, Wyn Jones and Ken Owens get starting births too.

Jacques Nienaber has been forced to make two changes to his team with injuries to key players Faf de Klerk and Pieter-Steph du Toit.

Cobus Reinach comes in for the former, while Lood de Jager comes in for the latter as Franco Mostert moves into the back row.

That shows an obvious tactical selection for South Africans, who’ll look to win the set piece battle with extra height in the lineout and weight in the scrum.




British & Irish Lions To Win

Only two times have the Lions won the opening Test and seen the series go to a deciding game since 1993, coming in 2001 when they lost out to Australia in the final match 29-23, and the other when they beat the Aussies 41-6 in 2013.

That doesn’t give us much to go off, but one factor that is certainly worth considering is that the winner of the opening Test has only lost the series in 14% of the seven tours since 1993.

From a betting perspective, it’s therefore a little surprising to see the hosts as odds-on favourites to take the proceedings without two of their key players.

The handicap line has been drawn at three points and with a lot of positive changes for the visitors to their starting team, we fancy them to cause an upset.

The only worry looks to be in the scrum, but the addition of Wyn Jones in the front row will look to provide more stability and with this looking like a flip of the coin tussle, the value lies with the Lions.
