Cape Town - The Springboks will have no trouble securing a win over Argentina in Port Elizabeth on Saturday as they kick off their Rugby Championship campaign, say local bookmakers.
According to Sportingbet, the Boks are 14 points better than the Pumas.
South Africa can be backed at 1/7 for the win while the South Americans are underdogs at 19/4. The draw, meanwhile, is on offer at 22/1.
But while Allister Coetzee's men are expected to win on Saturday, they are not expected to challenge for the Rugby Championship title.
The All Blacks are obvious favourites for the trophy at 1/9, but the good news is that South Africa are second-favourites ahead of Australia and Argentina.
The Boks are 9/1 to win, Australia 10/1 and Argentina 80/1.
The South Africans have not won the tournament since 2009, when it was still being played as the Tri-Nations.
Kick-off in PE on Saturday is at 17:05.
