Rugby World Cup 2019 Betting Tips & Predictions
Given recent warm up games and current form, it’s difficult to look past the New Zealand side at +125.
The All Blacks beat Australia four years ago and we expect them to be too strong this time around too.
The biggest threat that poses them in the Pool Stage is South Africa, a joint second favourite but we’d back both of those to qualify for the knockout stages and go far.
England haven’t been too thrilling in their warm up games with Wales but still hold a good chance and are perhaps the best side to back if you’re looking for value. Equally, while Australia aren’t the best side they’ve ever been, they could be worth a punt at +1200, or certainly to reach the Final at +450 as they certainly know how to step it up when it comes to the big games.
It’s likely that the top try scorer and points scorer will also come from the All Blacks, with Ioane and Reece prime candidates, which is clearly reflected in their prices.
As for Canada, it’s tough to see the team picking up much in the Pool Stage. A result about Namibia could be as good as it gets for them and if we were to put any money on them at all, it would be a win in that fixture. Of course, we hope to be proven wrong in this case and will be right behind them every game!
