Chippa United vs. TS Galaxy (Wednesday 5 February, 19:30)

Dan Malesela faces the club which unceremoniously sacked him twice as the Chilli Boys host the defending Nedbank Cup champions in Port Elizabeth.

Chippa have impressed since Norman Mapeza took charge, but they have often struggled to find the net.

TS Galaxy are struggling to escape the First Division relegation scrap and could use a break from league action.

Ultimately, Chippa should be too strong for their visitors in this one and are tipped to find their goalscoring form and come away with a comfortable win.

Prediction: Chippa United Win 2-0

Suggested BET: Chippa to win 0.90

BET: CHI v TSG

Kaizer Chiefs vs. Royal Eagles (Saturday 8 February, 18:00)

Last year’s beaten finalists, Kaizer Chiefs, have a point to prove and kick off their campaign with a seemingly straightforward match against Royal Eagles at FNB Stadium.

Royal Eagles have lost three straight matches at the time of writing, conceding 11 goals along the way.

We could see a big score here with Chiefs players hungry to stake their claims for starting spots and therefore going full speed ahead.

Prediction: Kaizer Chiefs Win 5-0

Suggested BET: Chiefs to win and over 3.5 goals

BET: CHI v EAG

Mamelodi Sundowns vs. SuperSport United (Saturday 8 February, 20:15)

In four Tshwane derbies this season, Mamelodi Sundowns lead SuperSport United by two wins to one. Matsatsantsa have a score to settle and will be going out guns blazing in an attempt to do so.

Sundowns having been linked with the likes of Aubrey Modiba, Bradley Grobler and Teboho Mokoena adds extra spice to this clash.

Sundowns are tipped to just get over the line at Loftus Versfeld with their tremendous squad depth counting in their favour.

Prediction: 2-2 Draw, Mamelodi Sundowns Win on Penalties

Suggested BET: BTTS and over 2.5 goals

BET: SUN v SSU

Orlando Pirates vs. Bidvest Wits (Sunday 9 February, 15:00)

Orlando Pirates seek to continue their tremendous form against league title challengers Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium.

Gabadinho Mhango is leading a surge up the table for Pirates and will be looking to extend his fine form to torment former club Wits in the Nedbank Cup.

Wits were recently dumped out of the CAF Confederation Cup and lost 2-0 to Cape Town City in the league. Also, they will play this game only three days after facing Black Leopards. As a result, Pirates are likely to claim this one.

Prediction: Orlando Pirates Win 2-0

Suggested BET: Pirates to win

BET: PIR v WIT
