Rugby World Cup: Biggest Bet Of The Tournament On New Zealand

There may not be any rugby until Wednesday but the betting on the World Cup does not stop and William Hillhave today taken their largest single wager on the outright market. An online punter has placed £10,000 on New Zealand winning the tournament at odds of 6/5, which has seen Britain’s biggest betting firm trim the odds to 11/10.


“New Zealand were not overly convincing against Argentina but they have certainly impressed one of our punters who has placed the single biggest bet on any country to lift the World Cup,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


World Cup winner: 11/10 New Zealand; 9/2 England; 15/2 Australia; 9/1 Ireland; 9/1 South Africa; 11/1 France; 28/1 Wales; 66/1 Argentina; 80/1 Scotland; 250/1 BAR
