Where to find the best odds for England v Fiji - the first match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup


England are heavy favourites to beat Fiji in Friday’s opening game of the Rugby World Cup at Twickenham, so simply putting money on the hosts to win may not be the best betting option.

With England hoping to rack up a few points against one of the supposedly weaker sides in their pool, Boyle Sports are offering 19/10 on the first score of the game coming from an England try, while BetVictor offer 2/1 that it’ll be an England penalty.

If England are to get the first try, they’ll need a player to cross the whitewash and winger Jonny May is favourite to be just that man. Sportingbet will give you odds of 13/2 on the Gloucester man scoring the first try.

If you think Fiji will score the first try, powerhouse winger Nemani Nadolo is teasingly priced at 20/1 by PaddyPower – the same odds as Sam Burgess, strangely, although Nadolo has the advantage of actually starting the game.

If the handicap market is something you’re into, there are seemingly endless opportunities to place your money, with SkyBet offering odds of 5/4 that England will win with a 28-point defecit. If you back Fiji’s defence to be slightly more resolute, you can find odds of 11/10 that they’ll be within 22 points of the hosts.

All these odds are correct on www.oddschecker.com as of the time of publishing, and remember – bet responsibly.
