Outright Rugby World Cup Odds
Ahead of the group stage getting underway, you can predict which teams you believe will make it through to the knockout stages of the competition. Selecting an outright winner of groups can also be done when browsing the outright betting markets for the Rugby World Cup.
When it comes to individual games throughout the tournament, there is a range of betting types for selecting the result of a match. From handicap betting to over/under betting, these bet types can offer different odds to the standard bet on which team will win the game.
Handicaps are used for matches in the Rugby World Cup when there is a clear favourite. The handicap will improve the payout odds as the underdog can start the match with a certain point advantage, meaning a team must win by a wider margin to overcome that advantage.
The Rugby World Cup is a competitive competition, and tight games are common. If you can't decide which team will have the winning edge, you can make a prediction on how many points they will score. Over/under betting lets you predict that Team A will score over or under the specified points.
