Rugby World Cup Finals 2023 Odds
Here’s a look at the odds of winning the 2023 Rugby World Cup from the best rugby union betting sites:
- South Africa to Win @ 2.0 (Evs)
- New Zealand to Win @ 2.40 (7/5)
- England to Win @ 13.50 (25/2)
- Argentina to Win @ 34.0 (33/1)
Bookies see the semifinals as a two-horse race, with New Zealand and South Africa to be the finalists and fight for the trophy.
Argentina vs New Zealand: Underrated Odds
New Zealand are coming into this semifinal in great offensive form, just like we predicted before the event started, as they have scored 70+ points in three of their last four games. They are also averaging 78 points per game in their last four matches, so this could very well be a high-scoring matchup. Argentina have gone over this total in three of their last four games as well.
England vs South Africa: Underrated Odds
England weren’t in their best form coming into this tournament, but they built momentum and are improving every game. This matchup was the last edition’s final, as South Africa beat the Three Lions by 20 points to win the title. This will be a revenge game for England, and they should have a good start in the first half, at least. They are on a five-game winning streak and can be the dark horse to reach the finals.
