2020 Super Rugby Aotearoa Round 4 Preview
Our Super Rugby Aotearoa Round 4 tips are now available and we’re set for another outstanding weekend of rugby.
The pressure is on both the Hurricanes and the Chiefs, who are chasing their first wins of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season, while the Crusaders and Highlanders will battle for second place on the ladder behind the Blues.
We have analysed both games set to take place and our complete 2020 Super Rugby Aotearoa round 4 tips can be found below.
Saturday 4 July, 5:05pm, Forsyth Barr Stadium
The Crusaders haven’t looked overly impressive during Super Rugby Aotearoa to date, but they are still unbeaten and they will start this clash with the Highlanders as clear favourites.
The Crusaders have won seven of their past eight games against the Highlanders and the majority of those wins have been by healthy margins.
They have won eight of their past nine games as favourites and they have covered the line in nine of their past 12 games against the Highlanders as the punter’s elect.
The Highlanders were not disgraced against the Blues last weekend and scoring points has not been a problem for them this season.
Defence continues to be an issue though and it is easy to see them leaking plenty of points against the Crusaders.
The Crusaders should win this clash comfortably and I don’t think that the line of 10.5 points will be enough.

Sunday 5 July, 1:35pm, Orangetheory Stadium
This is a crucial game for both the Chiefs and the Hurricanes.
The Chiefs have really failed to fire since they returned to action and they head into this clash on the back of defeats at the hands of the Highlanders, Blues and Crusaders.
They will start this clash as favourites and it is tough to get them anywhere near as short as their current price.
The Chiefs have lost their past three games as home favourites and you simply can’t back them with any confidence on the back of their recent form.
The Hurricanes went into their bye on the back of a loss to the Crusaders and their performance was better than it looks on paper.
They have won two of their past four games as away underdogs for a clear profit and they have a strong record against the Chiefs in recent years.
The Hurricanes are outstanding value at $2.60 and one of the best bets of the weekend.
