Since the introduction of the Q-innovation, a team had to win at least two quarters to lift the Absa Premiership trophy.
Kaizer Chiefs won two quarters in 2014/2015 season and Sundowns won three quarters in 2015/2016 season.
With that in mind, Wits and Sundowns are odds on favorites to lift the trophy this season.
