DStv Premiership Betting Guide: 25 August Weekend

The PSL continues this weekend, with a truncated schedule featuring five matches.

SuperSport United

The PSL continues this weekend, with a truncated schedule featuring five matches. Sundowns already lead the league by eight points, but they have played a few games more. A few teams will be eager to show that they can put up a fight against the defending champions. We picked three of the games to preview in our weekly betting guide.

Cape Town Spurs v Chippa United

No win and no point in three for Spurs, who are slowly looking like a fish out of water in the top division. It will take time for Coach Bartlett to get his newly signed parts blended in, and then to get the whole to become a competent Premier League unit. But time is a precious commodity on these streets. Of the six new sides who lost all three season openers, only one survived direct relegation (2005 Bush Bucks) while one needed playoffs to survive (2014 Polokwane City). However, there were signs of life in Spurs’ last game, as they fired 20 shots at their opponents, a league-high for any team this season. Plus their visitors are not good travellers, especially to the Cape.

1 – Chippa have won just one of their last 11 away games (D5 L5 since October 2022). Since 2012, they’ve won just one of 16 games away to Cape sides (D5 L10)

Kaizer Chiefs v AmaZulu

Kaizer Chiefs get another opportunity to kickstart their campaign when they host AmaZulu on Saturday. Amakhosi are winless in three league games this season, which extends to six when you go back to last season. They could do with a three-pointer here in whatever form – even via a last-minute own goal. At 2.05/1, bookies favor them for the win, but you may have to look elsewhere for goals this weekend. AmaZulu haven’t scored a goal in almost 500 minutes, and have three clean sheets in three games to start the season. Yet, they have just one away league win in the last 12 months (P14 W1 D8 L5), a sequence that began with a 0-0 draw at Chiefs.

Stellenbosch v SuperSport United

Stellies host Gavin Hunt’s SuperSport in a repeat of the MTN8 quarter-final from a fortnight ago. Both teams have started the season solidly (although not perfectly), and Stellies could have the confidence factor after knocking out Matsatsantsa at home in the Cup. SuperSport are seen as favourites by the bookies, but only just. The Cup quarter-final was so tight, it needed an extra time goal to separate the teams. But such is the nature of this fixture – this is the 10th time these sides are meeting since Stellies’ promotion and the past reads: four 1-0s, two 0-0s, two 1-1s, and a 2-0.
