Cape Town - Bookmakers are predicting some much-needed relief for Allister Coetzee's Springboks in their upcoming Rugby Championship clash against Australia at Loftus Versfeld.
The Boks and Wallabies will do battle in Pretoria on Saturday, October 1.
Kick-off is at 17:05.
Coetzee's team are coming off three consecutive defeats, including a 23-17 loss to Michael Cheika's Wallabies in Brisbane.
However, leading SA bookies Sportingbet have installed the Boks as 3-point favourites, despite uncertainty over the composition of Coetzee's squad, in particular the flyhalf position, for the final two matches of this year's tournament.
The Boks can be backed at 3/5 to win the match outright, while Australia are on offer at 13/10. The draw can be backed at 25/1.
The All Blacks, who have already clinched the 2016 Rugby Championship title, play Argentina in Beunos Aires on Sunday, October 2 at 00:15 (SA time).
Predictably, the All Blacks are massive 20-point favourites to keep their perfect win-streak alive in the tournament.
