The last two Super Rugby matches between the Reds and the Chiefs two teams have both been played in Hamilton and both have been won by the Reds.
The tournament leading Chiefs will therefore be hungry to stop the Reds winning streak and avenge those two home defeats in front of the Reds home crowd.
The Reds have played the Chiefs 16 times and both teams have won 8 matches each so they both have won 50% of their matches against each other.
On average when the Reds play the Chiefs they score 24 points and the Chiefs score 25 points.
In Brisbane the Reds have played the Chiefs 7 times and they have won four of those matches or 57% of their matches at home against the Chiefs.
On average when the Reds play the Chiefs in Brisbane they score 28 points and the Chiefs score 25 points.
The Reds were unlucky to lose against the Crusaders last week and they have clearly turned a corner in recent weeks. They have started showing the form they enjoyed last year but with the Brumbies so far ahead they are on the edge of missing the play offs.
The Bookies have given the Reds a 2 point start for this match - with an offer of Bet 5 and Get 50 in Bets. This is real tough one due to the Reds resurgence. We think they might sneak this one as they need it more. Reds to win by 1.
This match will be shown on TV in NZ, Aus, SA and in the UK it will be shown on on Sky Sports HD 2.
