150jaguaresAfter chalking up their first win of the Super Rugby season the Jaguares bid to go in again when they host the Reds in Round 5 in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

 

 

Jaguares v Reds, Saturday 17th March, Buenos Aires, KO 23:40 (South African time)

Referee: Paul Williams (New Zealand)
Assistant referees: Jamie Nutbrown (New Zealand), Pablo Deluca (Argentina)
TMO: Santiago Borsani (Argentina)

Weather Forecast – Buenos Aires

Jaguares:

Heading into the Round 4 clash at home to the Waratahs the Jaguares had failed to earn a log point in losing their first 3 matches, 28-20 at the Stormers, 47-27 at the Lions and 34-9 at home to the Hurricanes. They had started as underdogs in all those matches but failed to oblige for plus handicap backers. Jaguares were 4.5 point underdogs for the clash with the Tahs but they raced into a 33-7 half time lead and went on to win the game 38-28. The Tahs fought back in the closing moments to deny Jagaures a bonus point in a game where they Argentine side scored 6 of the 10 tries.

In 2017 Jaguares played all 5 of the Australian franchises competing at that time, winning 3 and losing 2. They beat the Reds 22-8 in Buenos Aires but other home fixtures against the Force (16-6) and the Brumbies (39-15) ended in defeat.

Reds:

When the Reds crashed 45-19 to the Rebels in Melbourne in their opening match of the tournament a long season looked likely however they have put together back to back wins to lift themselves into second spot in the Australian Conference, albeit 7 points behind the Melbourne side.

They opened their account with a hard earned 18-10 win at home to the Brumbies and followed up with a 20-14 victory against the Bulls in Brisbane last week. The task now is to improve on an away record which has seen the Reds win just 2 of the last 19. Furthermore, both of those victories came in Australian derby matches and they haven’t won overseas since beating the Cheetahs 18-17 in Bloemfontein back in 2015.

The Betting

Handicap

Jaguares -7.5 points at 9/10 WSB

Reds +8.5 points at 9/10 Hollywood

Note, odds quoted are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change.

Betting Angle

The Reds won’t want to get caught cold at the start in the way the Tahs did at this stadium last week and since Round 1 they have kept things pretty tight. Those wins came at home though and their away record is less than desirable outside of Australia.

Jaguares will take plenty from last week’s win over the Waratahs, it was a much needed victory but if they don’t follow up here their critics at home will see it as a case of 1 step forward and 2 back.

I’ll go with the home side, who are unchanged from last week, but the 1-12 margin is preferred to the handicap.

Bet. 2.5 units Jaguares to win, 1-12 points 1.75/1 Sportingbet
