BetOnline Releases Odds to Reach Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals; England in Top Four, Ireland a Lowly Sixth
England, which failed to advance past the group stage four years ago, are favored by BetOnline to reach the Rugby World Cup semi-finals. New Zealand are the biggest chalk at -700, while South Africa and Wales round out the top four. Bob Duff analyzes the best value bets for the 2019 tournament.
South Africa’s average odds of winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup at online sportsbooks have improved from +840 to +710. Are the Springboks a good value bet at that price or are they being overvalued, considering that they are grouped with the All Blacks in round-robin play?
Wales, currently ranked second in the world, are slightly favored over 2015 finalists Australia to win Group D at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
France (2015 RWC finalists), England and Argentina are all given solid odds of winning Group C of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Which team presents the best value for bettors given the current futures prices? Does underdog USA have any chance of pulling a massive upset at 500/1?
New Zealand have won the last two Rugby World Cups and are heavy -1000 favorites to win Group B at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. The All Blacks have never lost a group-stage game at the RWC. Should bettors go all in on the top-ranked team in the world or is there value on South Africa pulling an upset?
Ireland are the odds-on favorites to win Group A at the Rugby World Cup. The Irish will face competition from Scotland and host country Japan, in addition to overmatched Russia and Samoa. See the odds and our expert advice here.
New Zealand have won the last two Rugby World Cups and are heavily favored to do so again at the 2019 tournament in Japan.
