Major Rugby Union Matches Outright Betting Markets

There is something of a battle going on between bookmakers regarding trying to get you to place your bets and wagers with them, much more so on the major Rugby Union matches that are going to be in play during the weeks and months ahead.

So much so, that by shopping around when you do fancy placing such bets you are going to come across offers as generous as the 50% up to £100 deposit match bonus available at our top-rated betting site, that being 10bet.

No matter where you choose to bet though you should always shop around and compare the odds available on all Rugby Union, for most betting sites are going to have their own fixed odds markets in place, and not all of them will agree on the possible outcome of each match, and therein could lay some betting value!

This Saturday the 26th of May 2018 sees one must-watch Aviva Premiership match schedule to kick off, and with that in mind let me rattle through the teams playing against each other and give you few pointers as to the best odds I have so far come across on that match

The Saracens vs Exeter Chiefs match is one that I think you will be best off betting on a home win, for the odds currently on Saracens to win this match are 8/11 the draw is 14/1 and I am not convinced that the Exeter Chiefs are going to win, so their odds of 11/10 to do so seem rather paltry!

Guinness Pro 14 and French Top 14 Matches

I see great things ahead for Ulster, for having been following them for quite a while their style of play is impressive, and that is the team my money will be going on tomorrow at odds of 4/7!

That match is unlikely to end in a draw and the bookies think so too offering odds of 14/1 on it doing so, but if you are of the mind that the Ospreys cannot lose you can make currently bag odds of 7/5 on them winning.

Next week on the 26th of May 2016 you could probably be put off betting on the Leinster vs Scarlets match, for even though I am convinced there will be plenty of action and a huge score line, it will be a very one-sided match, with Leinster being 1/5 to win it, the draw being 20/1 and with odds of 10/30 on the Scarlets I doubt there will be many people betting on them to win!

The Montpellier vs Lyon OU is one match that I do not agree with the bookies on, for whilst all of them do think that Montpellier are the odds-on favourite to win at odds of around 1/3, I have a sneaky suspicion that Lyon OU are in with a big chance of winning that match at odds of 20/10 or there or thereabouts, and the draw for reference are 20/1, but a draw is highly unlikely obviously!

The Rugby Championship and International Matches

August is looking a good month for you to get your fill of Rugby Union, as there are plenty of matches taking place, and one match that I do know is going to attract huge volumes of bets and wagers is the Australia vs New Zealand International

Australia and currently viewed as the outsider to win that match and probably will remain that way, and their odds for reference are 16/5 to win, but it is of course New Zealand that have the players and skill required to take this match in their stride and their win odds are 2/9 with the draw odds being 30/1.

On the 9th of June you will find it is the turn of South Africa to show England how to play rugby! As you would expect South Africa are firm favourites to win this match at 3/4, however for reasons unknown the odds available on England winning are just 5/4, and in my opinion those odds should be much higher. The draw is 14/1 but that is unlikely to be the way the match ends!

I have also seen a few betting sites offering odds on the Ireland vs New Zealand match, that isn’t going to be taking place until November the 17th, if however, you do fancy something of a long term bet then are Ireland currently 2/1 to win that match the draw is 14/1 and it would appear the smart money, even at this early stage in the betting is on New Zeeland and their odds are 1/2.
