The Latest Rugby World Cup 2019 Odds Make For Some Interesting Reading

Closing the gap.

There’s been plenty of activity in terms of betting odds for the 2019 Rugby World Cup following on from the Six Nations.

Ireland were crowned Grand Slam champions on the final day, after dispatching of Eddie Jone’s England at Twickenham. The week before that Joe Schmidt’s men leapfrogged England in the World Rankings.

As a result, the bookies have now shortened the odds on Ireland winning their first ever Rugby World Cup, with some offering odds as low as 4/1, despite Ireland having never been made it past the last eight.

The All Blacks are of course still favourites by some distance at around 11/10, with England now pushed out at around 6/1. Former champions Australia and South African can be got at around 8/1 and 10/1 respectively.
