Damian Penaud and Peato Mauvaka to score anytime @23/20 (2.15)
France is expected to score tries in their upcoming match. Two players, Damian Penaud and Peato Mauvaka, are likely to contribute to France’s scoring, especially at the beginning of the match.
Damian Penaud has been performing exceptionally well in the tournament so far. He has already scored the most tries in the current season, with 12. Damian is on a roll, having scored tries in the past six games. He is currently the third-highest try-scorer in the history of the French national team, with 33 tries.

France to win by 25-30 points @ 4/9 (1.44)
Looking at the Rugby World Rankings, France is currently in 2nd place while Italy is in 11th place. This significant difference in rankings suggests that France should have an easy victory over Italy. However, France knows that being overconfident can lead to a surprising defeat. Unfortunately, France will be without Antoine Dupont, who sustained a fractured cheekbone. Nevertheless, they should be able to manage without him for this particular game.
Likely, France won’t field their strongest team for this match, as they have their attention set on the upcoming quarter-final clash. On the other hand, Italy will put forth their best players, knowing that failing to secure a win will result in their elimination from the competition.
Despite this, we predict that France will come out victorious, and expect to do so by around 25-30 points. You can place your bet on this @1.03 to get a bountiful reward.
