The MTN8 semi-finals takes place this weekend and we take a look at both games including the big clash between Pirates and Chiefs.
Let’s start with a look at the Outright Betting where Kaizer Chiefs are favourites at 15/10 with Orlando Pirates 2/1, SuperSport United 33/10 and Bloem Celtic the underdogs at 7/2.

ORLANDO PIRATES v KAIZER CHIEFS – Click here to bet
Pirates beat Cape Town City 1-0 in their quarter-final and in the League they are off to a slow start drawing both their opening matches.
Chiefs beat Maritzburg United 2-1 in their quarter-final and after losing their opening League match to Sundowns they bounced back with a 1-0 away win over Chippa United last time out.
Chiefs did the League double over Pirates last season winning each of the games by 1 goal.
Suggested Bet: Pirates win at 16/10
The bookmakers have this priced as a close encounter and I can totally understand that given the history between the sides but I think that Pirates are playing the better football at the moment and can bag the win.
SUPERSPORT UNITED v BLOEM CELTIC – Click here to bet
SuperSport United overcame stern resistance from Tshakhuma in their quarter-final, winning 3-2 on the road and they have had a mixed bag to the start of their PSL campaign, winning 1 and losing 1, most recently going down 3-1 at Golden Arrows.
Bloem Celtic beat Mamelodi Sundowns in their quarter-final by a goal to nil and they are still looking for a victory in the PSL with 1 draw and 1 loss, most recently going down 1-0 to Swallows in midweek.
Bloem Celtic 37/20
Suggested Bet: The draw at 21/10
These sides have drawn 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions including in the Nedbank Cup back in 2017/2018. South African Cup games tend to be tight affairs and anything over 2/1 is a value play on the draw for me.
