Cape Town - Despite their shock second Test defeat in Wellington, the All Blacks are overwhelming favourites to win the third and final Test against the British & Irish Lions at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday, if bookmakers are to be believed...
WATCH: Sonny Bill sees red over shoulder charge
The Lions were surprise 24-21 winners of the match at the Westpac Stadium last Saturday, helped in no small manner by the 25th minute red card issued to New Zealand centre Sonny Bill Williams.
However, despite their opponents being down to 14 men for a full 55 minutes, the Lions struggled to gain any sort of advantage and had to rely on a controversial late penalty to eke out a narrow three-point win.
Leading SA bookies Sportingbet have installed the All Blacks as 1/5 favourites for the series decider in Auckland, the same venue at which the All Blacks won the opening Test, 30-15.
The Lions can be backed at 7/2 while the draw is on offer at 22/1.
Handicap-wise, the All Blacks are 12-point favourites at 10/11.
