Rugby World Cup predictions today

Like the sound of these bets, but aren’t certain enough to put your own money down yet? Then keep reading, because each of our Rugby World Cup tips today are backed by the latest trends, data and expert analysis, so you can be confident if we suggest a bet, there’s good reason for it. Here’s why we say these Rugby World Cup predictions today are the ones to make:

Prediction 1: Argentina to defeat Japan 1-12 @ 15/8 (2.87)

It’s a good old fashioned shoot out in Pool D, with the winner of Argentina vs Japan booking their spot in the quarter-finals, and the losers getting on a plane home. Though both teams enter this clash on equal footing–having lost to England and beaten both Chile and Samoa–it certainly feels as though Japan will be the happier of the two teams with their campaigns so far.

Nonetheless, we have Argentina winning this one. Expect it to be tight, as the Brave Blossoms won’t roll over and give this one to Los Pumas having come so far this tournament, but ultimately–unless red cards are involved, which is always a possibility with Argentina–the men in white and blue should have too much muscle for Japan here.

Prediction 2: Romania +37 handicap against Tonga @ 1/1 (2.00)

Tonga and Romania square off in a match that’s purely for pride on Sunday, and we say that Romania will salvage some against Tonga. This isn’t saying much, considering they’ve been absolutely trounced across their first three matches this tournament. However, we say Romania will put up a decent fight here.

There’s even a chance that Tonga will turn up discouraged after their underwhelming campaign, and Romania will come out firing, and this will end up being a 1-12 win for Tonga. Take this wager, and you’ll come away with a healthy 9/1 (10.00) return if you’re brave.

Prediction 3: Fiji -20 handicap against Portugal @ 11/10 (1.90)

Rounding out pool play, Fiji take on Portugal with a quarter-final berth on the line. The Flying Fijians need just one point from this match in order to qualify for the knockout rounds, and we say they’ll get the full five. Portugal are a good outfit, but it’s unlikely Fiji will misfire two games in a row, and after their quiet match against Georgia, Portugal should bear the full brunt of their assault this Sunday.

Expect a 21-30 margin here, with Fiji triumphantly knocking out Australia and setting a mouth-watering quarter-final against England next weekend.
