Tasman with favorable 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Premiership betting odds to claim Division win
Currently, Tasman stand the best chance of claiming the Premiership Division win on the online sportsbooks in New Zealand. The club have never claimed Premiership Division victory. The closest they came to achieving this was in 2016 and 2017 losing both finals to Canterbury. However, things could soon change for Tasman with promising Unibet Sportsbook 2019 Mite 10 Cup Premiership betting odds at 1.50.
After 3 games, Tasman currently sit comfortably in the Premiership Division with 3 wins. Consequently, it’s likely that the club will be among the 4 teams to advance to the Playoffs. Luckily, Tasman have a promising lineup with some of its players among the Divisions top performers. This includes Mitchell Hunt, the club’s current Top Points Scorer. Additionally, Leicester Fainga’anuku and Jamie Spowart, their Top Try Scorers.
Auckland with a considerable chance to claim a consecutive Premiership Division win
Last year’s champions Auckland currently have the 2nd best 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Premiership betting odds of retaining their title. According to the online sportsbook news in New Zealand, their chances of achieving this are 4.50 on Unibet Sportsbook. Consequently, a Premiership Division win this year would make it a total of 3 titles for Auckland.
Their players to watch this season are Tanielu Tele’a and Salesi Rayasi. Last season, winger Rayasi was instrumental in Auckland’s Premiership Division win and the youngster could again be an asset for Auckland.
Wellington to be among teams to advance to Premiership Division Playoffs
This year, Wellington’s chances of winning the Premiership Division stand at 14.00 on Unibet Sportsbook. According to the our 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Premiership betting predictions, they’ll book a spot in the Playoffs. However, an appearance in Premiership Division Final won’t be an easy task. Similarly to Tasman, the club have also never achieved Premiership Division victory.
However, they’ve been runners up in the Division an impressive 5 times from 2006-2009 and 2013. Fortunately, the club has a strong lineup this season that could push Wellington to Premiership Division victory. This includes Jackson Garden-Bachop and Alex Fidow who are the club’s Top Points and Top Try Scorers respectively.
Waikato to fight for Playoffs appearance
Currently on Unibet Sportsbook, Waikato (26.00) stand a small chance of achieving 2019 Premiership Division victory. Last season, Waikato won the Championship Division. As a result, they achieved promotion to the Premiership Division. Unfortunately, they haven’t presented themselves as threats as they currently sit outside the Playoffs spots. Consequently, our 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Premiership betting predictions say Waikato will likely struggle to book a Playoffs appearance.
However, the club still have 8 more games to play in the Regular Season. This means Waikato can still be among the 4 teams to play in the Playoffs. One of the players that can help to make this a reality is centre Quinn Tupaea. The Waikato centre is currently one of the Premiership Divisions Top Try and Points Scorer.
Counties Manukau are the underdogs that might be worth the risk
According to Unibet Sportsbook, Counties Manukau have the worst 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Premiership betting odds of winning. However, with only 2 games completed, the club are currently 3rd in Division behind top contenders Tasman and Auckland. This is thanks to players Riley Hohepa, Chris Kuridrani and Conán O’Donnell and more.
Fortunately, Counties Makua still have 8 games left in the Regular Season. If they can keep up the momentum, they can qualify for the Playoffs, and possible defy their bad odds of winning.
