2. 2019 Rugby WC Betting Odds
The most recent team to defeat New Zealand at the time of writing was Ireland, who overcame the All Blacks 16-9 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin in November 2018. This victory immediately propelled the Irish to the position of biggest challengers at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Ireland won the 2018 Six Nations by winning every match and securing the Grand Slam but their 2019 campaign did not get off to a great start as they lost at home to England. It will be interesting to see how Ireland cope with the pressure of being the main team to push the All Blacks and they can be backed at 4/1 with Bet365 to win the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
England were awful in the 2018 Six Nations but an improved showing in the Autumn internationals plus the recent win in Ireland has improved their chances of World Cup success. There is no doubt England can beat anyone on their day and they make an exciting bet to win the Rugby World Cup 2019 at 9/2 with Bet365.
Other contenders include South Africa at 9/1, Australia at 12/1 and Wales also at 12/1.
