    Cape Town - The Cheetahs stand little to no chance of lifting this year's Super Rugby trophy if bookmakers are to be believed...

    Leading SA bookies SportsBet have installed the Cheetahs as 25/1 rank underdogs to emerge victorious in this year's competition.

    In order to upset the odds, Naka Drotske's men would need to beat the Brumbies in Canberra on Sunday (kick-off 08:10 SA time), then beat the Chiefs in Hamilton the following weekend, before meeting either the Bulls, Crusaders or Reds in the final.

    The Chiefs have been listed as 9/4 favourites, followed by the Bulls at 5/2 and the seven-time champion Crusaders (3/1).

    The Brumbies can be backed at 5/1 while Australia's other playoff representatives, the Reds, are on offer at 14/1.
