With the Rugby World Cup just around the corner, it’s certainly time to start looking at what the sportsbooks are saying.

Rugby World Cup 2019 Betting Tips & Predictions

It’s perhaps a little difficult to look past New Zealand in the outright winner stakes. They’ve won the last two tournaments and look set to make it a hat-trick, a feat no other side has achieved.

At +125 they don’t provide amazing value, so a punt on England might take your fancy a little more at +450.

Australia to reach the Final at +450 also offers a sensible bet, while to win at +1200 is a rather bold one.

The Aussies were beaten comfortably by New Zealand in a warm up game, losing 36-0 and it looks as though the All Blacks are ready to peak at just the right time.

Because of that, we’d expect one of Rieko Ioane or Sevu Reece to be the star men and pick up top try scorer, although Jonny May could be an excellent punt at +1100 if you’re backing England to go all the way.

Canada are unlikely to push into the knockout stages. In fact, they’re a huge +500 to make it to the Quarter Final with bet365 and the only way we can see them enjoying any kind of win is against Namibia, but even that will be against the odds.
