The Rugby World Cup 2015 culminates to an eventful final in England as the teams are being decided at the moment of whom goes to the knockout round stages. Of course England are out of the tournament with a poor showing throughout and there have been other storylines to follow. South Africa are looking good after opening with a huge upset loss to Japan. New Zealand and Australia are looking like the dominant teams so the odds are really split between these 2 nations of who's going to win the tournament.
At Smarkets betting exchange the current outright odds to win the tournament are as follows:
- New Zealand 2.26
- Australia 4.2
- South Africa 8.4
- Ireland 12
- France 14
- Wales 23
On Guts.com sportsbook you can bet on the individual matches as well.
While most people have their eyes on New Zealand, Australia are just dominating their opponents. Mind you they have had some easy games but Australia is just too strong of a rugby nation and they are showing it too.
Rugby and New Zealand are really synonymous with each other. Not winning the tournament is simply going to be chalked up as a failure even if it means losing in the finals. The team are on form and are looking strong and sharp.
They are the team that are capable of knocking out any top team when they are on their game. If they get a good matchup against a giant like Australia or New Zealand then I think we'll have a competitive match that isn't exactly predictable either.
