Wounded All Blacks To Seal The Series With A Resounding Win Over The Lions

The British and Irish Lions Tour of New Zealand will come down to a deciding Test as the pair clash at Eden Park on Saturday and we are backing the wounded All Blacks to romp to victory in Auckland...

  • New Zealand are unbeaten at Eden Park since 1994
  • The Lions haven't won a tour of New Zealand since 1971
  • Julian Savea has scored 8 tries in 8 matches at Eden Park

All Square

Having lost the First Test by fifteen points, the Lions caused a massive upset by beating New Zealand 24-21 in Wellington last weekend and it was the All Blacks first defeat on home soil since 2009. In truth, the Lions were indebted to Sonny Bill Williams' sending off as it ensured they played against fourteen-men for the best part of 55 minutes and we fear for them on level playing terms this weekend.

The All Blacks dominated possession and territory despite being a man down and only some woeful kicking from Beauden Barrett meant that the Lions' concession of thirteen penalties wasn't punished.

Don't expect New Zealand to be in such a forgiving mood at Eden Park, where they are unbeaten since 1994, and we are going to back Steve Hansen's men to romp to victory by covering a -11 point handicap (evens with Sky Bet).
Match Odds:

The Teams

Warren Gatland has named an unchanged team as the Lions bid to win a tour of New Zealand for the first time since 1971, although Hansen has made enforced changes as centre Ngani Laumape and full-back Jordie Barrett prepare to make their first Test starts.

Barrett's inclusion means that Israel Dagg will move to the wing, while the prolific Julian Savea returns on the left wing and he will have plenty to prove to Hansen after being left out of the first two Tests.

Savea, who has scored 46 tries in 50 Test starts, has racked up eight tries in eight appearances at Eden Park and he is a tempting 9/1 to be first tryscorer (Unibet).
