Rugby World Cup: Predictable Quarter-Finals – Australia Backed For Glory

On paper the Quarter-Finals look relatively predictable with William Hill offering 13/8 that all four favourites make it through to the semi-finals. If there is to be a surprise the odds suggest that the injuries could catch up with Ireland and Argentina are 7/4 to beat them. It is 11/4 that no Northern Hemisphere sides make it through to the Semi-Finals.


Meanwhile Australia are all the rage to go on and win the World Cup with well over 50% of the recent bets placed on the Aussies to win at 5/2. Whilst New Zealand are the 6/5 favourites and South Africa are offered at 5/1.


Quarter Finals:


1/3 South Africa, 5/2 Wales, 25/1 Draw

1/6 New Zealand, 5/1 France, 25/1 Draw
