The Rugby World Cup 2019 is one of the top sporting events highlighting this year, bringing together a collection of 48 teams that offers unlimited sporting drama. For betting enthusiasts, the beginning of the event also marks a time for business and making profits. As the competition enters the semi-finals, bettors at Betway need to know how they can make some cash while enjoying the thrill. Here are some useful tips and betting guide to help you back the right outcome:
Following the end of the quarter-finals, the remaining nations have already proven their capability to lift the Webb Ellis trophy. New Zealand is the bookies’ favorite, but will captain Kieran Read make it through three consecutive wins for a shot at the finals on Saturday, 2nd November?
Despite having a temperate year, New Zealand possesses enough class and also has some of the best performers on the squad. Their win against South Africa in the pool stage has taken care of any pre-tournament doubts, though they had a tough route through the Knockout stage. However, the team has handled it very well so far, with their brilliant victory over Ireland. Nonetheless, they still have two tough games ahead.
For the most part of the tournament, England continued simmering only to burst to life to earn their quarter-final win over Australia. However, they still have a rough road ahead, with New Zealand ready for them in the Semi-finals. Nonetheless, their emphatic triumph over the Wallabies during the 2019 RWC Japan quarter-finals shows that they are a serious contender in the tournament.
For the first time in the last decade, Rugby Championship winners, the South African squad is fierce. They’ve got a substantial depth in their strong forward pack, which includes pragmatic half-backs and an unforgiving back-three. Their loss against New Zealand in the group stage also gives them a more natural draw. However, their slow-building, punch triumph over the hosts, Japan shows that Wales has its work cut out in the semi-finals.
The six Nations Champions are desperate to give the leaving coach Warren Gatland the best send-off. As such, the Welsh rugby squad will be spirits high, pampered by their pool-stage triumph over Australia. However, they might find themselves in a draw, avoiding both England and New Zealand until the final.
While New Zealand took the win against Ireland despite having a tough time, the main issue on Saturday is whether they can replicate their last performance. As such, those who think the All Blacks can replicate their speed and accuracy will only have one way to go when betting with Betway. That means backing New Zealand on 2/5.
It might be surprising, but Wales has beaten South Africa for the last four times they’ve met. The Welsh team beat the South African Boks 12-6 at Cardiff in 2014, though they were edged out of the World Cup tournament in the quarter-final. As such, Wales is the best team to back on 3/1, considering the head-to-head performance of both sides. However, the Boks have improved significantly since 2014, so buckle up and get ready for a great rugby weekend.
