Rugby World Cup 2019

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, England ran away with it, they were just too strong. I feel for the Wallabies fans but at least Cheika is now a thing of the past.

I will be back with my selections for the 2 semis probably this Friday.

Sidenote: Convinced my friend last year (post-France win) to throw money on the Boks to win the whole thing @ 12.00.

Complete drunk decision as it's turned out to be more profitable to simply bet on them to win each game as an accumulation of the previous winnings e.g 1.7 * 1.91 * 1.8 etc etc)

Especially with the lowered odds coming in to the tournament and cashing out the profit and doing that was a better idea... Food for thought.

I think this is quite a common scenario @KikoCy and it's certainly something I see in tennis. It makes sense though when you consider that the margin on the odds is that much higher in a tournament winner market than a 1x2 market because of the higher number of runners. That said though, it's easier to just bet on an outright rather than bet on each round and maybe the higher payout betting on each round isn't worth the extra time spent doing it.

For sure, you bring up some valid points yet the spread is almost always covered in rugby so it really depends!

Thoughts on semis; NZ by 1-12 seems a great bet but, for the longer odds, I’m risking 1-10 at 21/10 Betway. I fancy SA on the handicap or by 1-12 perhaps, not decided yet.

888 offer 7/5 in both games for last tryscorer to be “any other” (sub, no try or pen try) which is generous, just done the double for interest.

Hills prices for >1.5 cards look decent, will play that in some way.
