Cape Town - The Springboks will 'do the double' over Argentina in the Rugby Championship clash in Mendoza on Saturday, if bookmakers are to be believed...

But the margin of victory will be closer than in Durban last weekend.

Having beaten Argentina 34-21 in their opening 2018 Rugby Championship clash at Kings Park, Rassie Erasmus and his team face an altogether different challenge in South America this weekend.

Kick-off is at 21:10 SA time.

Having installed the Boks as 15-point handicap favourites last time out, leading SA bookmakers Sportingbet suggest a 7.5-point handicap is the likely margin of victory this time around.

The Boks are 2/5 outright favourites, while the Pumas can be backed at 2/1. The draw is on offer at 22/1.

Meanwhile, the All Blacks are massive 22.5-point handicap favourites - and 1/25 outright - to beat the Wallabies and retain the Bledisloe Cup in their second round clash in Auckland.

Australia, on the receiving end of a 38-13 walloping last weekend, can be backed at 9/1, while the draw can be taken at 50/1.

Kick-off at Eden Park is 09:35 SA time.
