Rugby Union Betting
Often, the first stop when you’re looking to make your way into rugby union betting is international rugby union. The biggest stars of the sport can more often be found playing for England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some of the world’s most successful international rugby union sides.
Annual international competitions like the Six Nations have been a stage for some of Europe’s most legendary rugby union players. England’s Jonny Wilkinson, Wales’ Shane Williams, Brian O’Driscoll of Ireland and Scotland’s Gavin Hastings made their names in Six Nations competition.
But rugby union is popular far beyond Europe’s borders. In fact, some of the most iconic names and teams in the sport are from the other side of the world. Australia and South Africa are two international sides with incredible records but the undisputed kings of the sport are New Zealand’s All Blacks.
Facing down the famous haka is not a requirement of making your first steps in rugby union betting. In fact, betting with us is actually very easy to pick up.
One of the most popular rugby union bets is an Outright Winner bet. This is as simple as it sounds. Your bet will be on the winner of the match. If who you pick wins, your bet does too.
But that’s not the only popular market in rugby union betting. Handicap betting, sometimes known as line betting, is one of the most frequently used rugby union markets.
When you make a handicap bet you’re backing a team to win by a certain margin. For example, you could bet on England to beat the All Blacks with a -11.5 handicap, meaning they’d have to win the match by at least twelve points or your bet won’t be successful.
Winning Margin is also a popular market. Acting similar to handicap betting, you pick a range of a winning margin. As long as your team wins by a number of points within that spread, you’ll win your rugby union bet.
Rugby Union Odds
Perhaps you’re a dedicated fan of an international or domestic team and you’re entering the world of rugby union betting to back them. Your first rugby union bet could be based on a favourite player. Maybe the way you pick a rugby union bet is because of the best odds and the most competitive markets.
