Bet on England RWC
You can back England at 33/1 with Betfair ( get free £25 bet for a new account) to retain the William Webb Ellis Cup and, although a patrotic bet, It is felt England have very little chance of retaining the cup with better teams playing who have pace and class and england rely on experience but with so many games in a short period of time it could be too much for old bodies to cope with.
Group A Betting England to top their group odds
England’s group contains Samoa, Tonga, USA and South Africa in the Group stages and should easily qualify, but they are 5/2 to top the group with South Africa clear favourites at 1/4.
This will mean England are likely to face Australia in the Quarter finals, with the aussies beats the Kiwis back in June this will be a tough game. England 8/11 to get the quarter finals with blue square (Get Free £25 bet with Bluesq). This is our tip for how far England will get.
If you are confident England will Reach the Semi Finals, bv either beating Australia or South Africa in the group stages, we are 9/4 to be eliminated at the semi final stage, if you think we will be beaten finalist you will get 10/1. Bet on England with Totesport and get free £25 Bet
Ireland Stage of Elimination Betting
Pool Stages 5 – 2
Quarter Final 10 – 11
Semi Final 6 – 1
Final 8 – 1
Win 20 – 1
Ireland have a difficult group with France and Argentina it is not a formality they will get to the knock out stage and you can get 5/2 from Paddypower ( £20 free bet on new accounts) on them failing to get past the group stages we think this is a good bet.
Wales RWC Betting
Wales look good to get to the last 8 but we think the will go out at this stage they are 4/11 to go out in the quarters.
They are 3/1 to lose in the semi finals and 16/1 to be tournament runners up.
Scotland Progression Betting
Scotland have no chance of beating New Zealand despite the game being played at Murrayfield but are 8/11 to win their group without the All Blacks. The runners up slot is likely to be decided by the final group game between Scotland and Italy at St Etienne on the 29th September. The Azzurri beat the Scots 37-17 at Murrayfield back in February and are a confident selection to confirm the form. The Scots are 11/10 not to qualify and that looks too big.
Top Try Scorer Betting
New Zealand with both Portugal and Romania in their group are likely to have the top try scorer. But which one will be top scorer it is likely Joe Rokocoko and Sivivatu will not play against the minnows of Portugal and Romania and it is likely that New Zealand will score at least ten tries in both matches, so maybe look to Malili Muliaina (16/1 at Totesport ) who can play anywhere in the backs and looks just the type to score a hatful against the lesser lights.
France were impressive against the English and Welsh recently and with home advantage they are the recommendation at 7/1 for the outright, although I suggest a saver at 9/4 in the market without the All Blacks.
