What Are The Rugby World Cup Odds?

Fancy a flutter during the 2019 Rugby World Cup? Well to help you out we have taken a look at who are the current favourites for the tournament and which teams you may be better off steering clear of.

What Are The Rugby World Cup Odds?

As you would expect given they have won the last two Rugby World Cups, New Zealand remain the favourites to lift the trophy for the third time in a row thanks to their group stage victories.

Surprisingly South Africa are next despite coming second in their group. It seems as if the bookmakers are not giving their quarter-final opponents Japan much hope as the Springboks are currently around 3/1.

England follow next at roughly 4/1.

2019 Six Nations Grand Slam champions Wales are next with odds ranging from 7-9/1 at the moment. Considering they beat Australia and top their group the fact they aren’t a bit lower is a little bit interesting.

Ireland are next and their odds dropped down significantly because of their recent shock loss to Japan and their quarter-final opponents are the All Blacks. The men in green are around 18/1 at the moment.

After their loss to Wales and a quarter-final contest with England is on the horizon, Australia ‘s odds vary from about 20-25/1.

France are just behind the Wallabies at 33/1 and Japan are believed to be the last likely to win out of the teams remaining. Their odds differ massively in terms of betting provider with some offering 25/1 and others offering 40/1.

We will also update this page when betting is available on individual statistics like top try scorer and top points scorer for the tournament.
