Your Quick Guide to 2019 Rugby World Cup Betting

Eric Winner is predominantly about horse racing. To be precise, sprint horse racing. And the main man is bloody good at what he does, too. 

I'm not sure if Eric is a Rugby Union fan. I used to play for my local club in my 20s and it was great fun and even a horribly mangled leg didn't stop me (slowed me down a tad). So from those early school day, leading to being part of March Bears I like to watch the action at all levels. I can't say I have ever taken an interest regarding the Rugby World Cup Betting but I will be checking out the odds for England, being a stout supporter of the men in white.   

This year will be the ninth Rugby World Cup, which is hosted in Japan. The competition starts on 20 September and concluded on the 2nd of November. Plenty of action to enjoy from 20 teams from the four corners off the earth. 

England is in Pool C. This group includes France, Argentina, USA & Tonga. 

I'm sure fans will remember England's historic victory back in 2003 at the Telstra Stadium in Sydney when ''our boys'' won 20-17 in front of a crowd of 82,000. The first European side to win the Webb Ellis Cup. The sublime moment when Johnny Wilkinson kicked a drop goal in the final minute of extra time (YES!!!!). 

15 million UK viewers jumping out of their chairs and shouting in victory. 

You can tell I'm getting carried away. 

Let's take a quick look at the World Cup Winners:

New Zealand has won it three times. South Africa twice (they are in Pool B). While two-times winner Australia is in Pool D. 

World Cup Rugby Betting:

At the time of writing, New Zealand is hot favourites priced 11/10. England (''Come on England'') looking tasty at 5/1 second favourite. Singing proudly of Wales, they are priced 11/2 (Pool D), Ireland 7/1 (Pool A). 

Other teams with a shout include South Africa 9/1. While Australia must be struggling for form as they are presently 16/1. France is in a similar boat at 28/1. 

If you are searching for a shock result, you can have £50,000 to £10 with a cheeky win bet on Russia or Uruguay. 

The English team. Eddie Jones has selected a 31-man final squad including:   


Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Tom Curry (Sale Sharks), Tom Curry (Sale Sharks), Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers), Jamie George (Saracens), Maro Itoje (Saracens), George Kruis (Saracens), Joe Launchbury (Wasps), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints), Lewis Ludlam (Northampton Saints), Joe Marler (Harlequins), Kyle Sinckler (Harlequins), Jack Singleton (Saracens), Sam Underhill (Bath), Billy Vunipola (Saracens), Mako Vunipola (Saracens), Mark Wilson (Newcastle Falcons).
