The PSL continues this weekend and we take a look at the 5 matches taking place on Saturday and suggest a bet in each.
BLACK LEOPARDS v MARITZBURG UNITED
One of these sides is going to get their first points of the season as both teams have lost their opening 3 matches.
Leopards only home game to date was a 3-1 defeat to Baroka and Maritzburg’s 2 away matches was a 3-1 loss to Chippa and a 2-1 loss to Baroka.

Black Leopards 22/10
Maritzburg United 14/10
Suggested Bet: Both teams to score, YES, at 21/20
This bet would have arrived in Black Leopards only home game and both Maritzburg United’s away matches and also in this fixture last season.
GOLDEN ARROWS v KAIZER CHIEFS
Golden Arrows are 5th on the log with 2 draws and a victory in their opening 3 games and they play Kaizer Chiefs who are struggling down in 11th spot with 4 points from their opening 3 matches.
Both teams have found the net in all 3 of Golden Arrows matches whereas Kaizer Chiefs 3 matches have only had a total of 4 goals scored and only 1 of them by Chiefs.

Golden Arrows 3/1
Kaizer Chiefs 11/10
Suggested Bet: Arrows win at 3/1
Chiefs have shown nothing this season to suggest they should be such short priced favourites and Arrows look the value.
STELLENBOSCH v CHIPPA UNITED
Stellenbosch are 12th on the log having taken 2 points from their first 3 matches. All 3 of their games have delivered for under 2.5 goal backers.
Chippa United are 2 points above them with 4 points from their opening 3 games and they got their first 3 pointer with a 3-1 home win over Maritzburg United last time out.

Chippa United 3/1
Suggested Bet: Correct Score 1-1 at 39/10
I was looking to back the draw straight up, but at 16/10 the bookies have seen me coming. This match looks likely to be very tight and I will take a speculative play at just under 4/1.
ORLANDO PIRATES v SUPERSPORT UNITED
Pirates are 6th on the log with 5 points from their opening 3 matches. They started with a couple of draws and then beat Bloem Celtic 1-0 last time and all 3 of their games have had 2 goals or less in them.
SuperSport are 4th on the table with 2 wins and a loss in their opening 3 matches and their loss did come on the road at Golden Arrows going down 3-1.

Orlando Pirates 14/10
SuperSport United 27/10
Suggested Bet: Pirates win at 14/10
The home team tends to have the edge in this fixture and has won the last 4 head-to-heads in the PSL.
SWALLOWS v TS GALAXY
Both these sides are newcomers into the PSL and Swallows are going well with 7 points from their opening 9 including a 2-0 win away at Tshakhuma last time out and their last home game was a 1-0 home win over Bloem Celtic.
Galaxy are also undefeated with 2 draws and a victory in their opening 3 matches and they sit 7th on the log. Last time out they played to a goalless draw away at Chiefs and both of their away games this season have finished in a draw.
These sides met in the GladAfrica Championship last season with the away team winning on each occasion.

TS Galaxy 3/1
Suggested Bet: Swallows win at 13/10
I have been impressed with what I have seen from Swallows so far and I think they can continue their strong start.
