Crusaders vs Blues Preview
Both the Crusaders and the Blues have been flawless since Super Rugby returned and we are set for an outstanding game on Saturday.
The Crusaders produced their best performance of the season to date when then beat the Highlanders comfortably last weekend and it is no surprise that they will go into this clash as clear favourites.
They have won their past 11 games against the Blues and they have now won eight of their past nine games as favourites for a clear profit.
Their record against the profit, however, is not as impressive.
They have covered the line in only one of their past four games as home favourites and they are 4-5 in their last nine games when giving away a start.
The Blues go into this clash on the back of a bye and they will have plenty of confidence following their wins over the Hurricanes, Chiefs and Highlanders.
The Crusaders are on another level from those three sides, but I think that the Blues might be up to the task.
Incredibly, they have won their past five games as away underdogs for an enormous profit and they continue to outperform market expectations.
Dan Carter may not get on the field for the Blues, but he does know the Crusaders better than almost anybody and he can deliver plenty of insights into his former side.
The Crusaders will still prove tough to beat, but the Blues will be right in this clash and they can cover the line with a healthy start.
