Australia is guaranteed a Super Rugby Grand Finalist, but according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, it looks like being the Waratahs, who’ve opened as a $1.38 favourite to beat the Brumbies ($3.05) in Saturday’s preliminary final at Allianz Stadium.

The ‘Tahs are priced at $1.90 in line betting, giving away 7.0 points start to the Brumbies.

The Waratahs are coming off a week’s rest after finishing the regular season in top spot, while the Brumbies had to fight hard to get past defending champions the Chiefs in Canberra over the weekend.

“There won’t be a spare seat at Allianz Stadium – Waratahs fans have been waiting a long time to taste success in this competition, and they can book a home grand final with a win here,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

In the other grand final qualifier, the Crusaders are $1.35 favourites at home to the Sharks ($3.20).
