Nedbank Cup Bet Preview
The Nedbank Cup is once again hotting up with only 16 sides left in the competition. The South African domestic cup competition consistently throws up fascinating fixtures and ‘Giant Killings’ and with the likes of the Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United having already crashed out of the competition, the 2019-20 trophy looks wide open. With defending champions TS Galaxy crashing out in the last round, a different name is guaranteed to be on the trophy come the end of the season and the usual suspects of Kaiser Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns look very much in contention to add to their trophy haul.
With only 16 teams left in the competition, every side will be starting to believe they can go all the way in the Nedbank Cup this year:
Black Leopards vs Amavarara
This should be a close encounter between two strong sides, but Black Leopards are a professional outfit and they should get the job done here.
Score Prediction – Black Leopards 3 – 1 Amavarara
Betxchange Best Bet – Over 2.5 goals in the game – 0.75
Highlands Park vs Kaiser Chiefs
This is the standout tie of the round and it promises to be a fascinating clash, but Kaiser Chiefs haven’t won this competition since 2013 and they will be eager to put that right this season.
Score Prediction – Highlands Park 1 – 2 Kaiser Chiefs
Betxchange Best Bet – Both teams to score in the match – 0.68
Happy Wanderers vs TS Sporting
This looks a particularly close clash on paper, and it could well need penalties to separate this two sides at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
Score Prediction – Happy Wanderers 1 – 1 TS Sporting
Betxchange Best Bet – The match to finish as a draw – 1.95
Mbombela United vs Real Kings
Mbombela United – 2.14
Real Kings – 1.38
Draw – 2.10
Both sides will see this as a genuine opportunity to progress to the last 8 and it could be a goal fest that Mbombela United should just about prevail from.
Score Prediction – Mbombela United 3 – 2 Real Kings
Betxchange Best Bet – Mbombela United to win the match – 2.14
Baroka vs Hungry Lions
The Hungry Lions could smell blood here with Baroka immersed in a relegation battle, but they should have too much about them in front of their passionate home support.
Score Prediction – Baroka 3 – 1 Hungry Lions
Betxchange Best Bet – Baroka to win the match and both teams to score – 0.51
Bloem Celtic vs Maritzburg United
With both sides going relatively well in the league, this should be a welcome distraction and Maritzburg United should just come through this one.
Score Prediction – Bloem Celtic 1– 2 Maritzburg United
Betxchange Best Bet – Maritzburg United to win the match – 2.42
Mamelodi Sundowns vs Vaal University of Technology
This will be a superb opportunity for the Vaal students to showcase their talents but Mamelodi Sundowns are in excellent form and they could run riot here.
Score Prediction – Mamelodi Sundowns 5 – 0 Vaal University of Technology
Betxchange Best Bet – Over 3.5 goals in the game – 0.45
Bidvest Wits vs Chippa United
Two top-flight sides complete the last 16 line up and whilst Chippa United won’t roll over for Bidvest Wits, they should have way too much about them on the big stage here.
Score Prediction – Bidvest Wits 3 – 1 Chippa United
Betxchange Best Bet – Bidvest Wits to win the match and both teams to score – 0.95
