Cape Town - The Wallabies will edge the Springboks in Saturday’s Rugby Championship encounter in Brisbane, if local bookmakers are to be believed.
Both teams are desperate for a win, with the Boks coming off a 32-19 defeat to Argentina in Mendoza and Australia losing twice to New Zealand - 38-13 in Sydney and 40-12 in Auckland.
Local bookmakers Sportingbet.co.za believe home ground advantage will count in Australia’s favour, predicting a 5-point victory for the Wallabies.
The hosts can be backed at 67/100 odds, while the Springboks are 5/4 underdogs.
Australia and South Africa couldn't be split in their two encounters last year with a 23-all draw in Perth before playing out a 27-all draw in Bloemfontein.
Saturday’s Test is scheduled for 12:00 (SA time).
