Rugby World Cup Odds: How far will the Boys in Green go?
The 2023 Rugby World Cup gets underway this evening when tournament hosts France do battle with favourites New Zealand and we take a look at the leading candidates to lift the trophy on 28th October.
The warm-up games for this year’s Rugby World Cup are now out of the way and the real fun gets underway tonight when France lock horns with New Zealand. Much can happen over the next few weeks but as the competition gets underway, there are four sides which are very evenly matched in terms of recent form, namely Ireland, France, New Zealand and South Africa.
World Number One
As the Number One ranked side in the world, Ireland are expected to do well in the tournament and while they have never before made it past the quarter-finals, many envisage this particular hoodoo coming to an end in France. Andy Farrell’s men have their best ever chance of becoming the second side from the Northern hemisphere to clinch the trophy following England’s victory twenty years ago.
The Irish are near certainties to triumph in their opening match against Romania, the odds reflecting this fact. This has all the makings of a rout with Ireland being very much in a good place on the back of their fourteen successive wins and Romania shambling through their pre phase. Johnny Sexton will make a welcome return to the fray for the first time since March in his side’s World Cup opener, the Irish skipper one of the favourites to be top points scorer in the competition at a general price of 10/1 .
Farrell’s side are odds-on at 1/8 to make it into the quarter-finals of the tournament, this being the furthest they have ever progressed in a World Cup. Should they finish at the summit of their pool, they will do battle with the runner-up in Pool A which should be either New Zealand or France. Should Ireland finish runners-up in their group, then they will face the winners of Pool A in the quarter-finals.
There is a high expectation that Farrell’s men will make it through the quarter-finals of the 2023 Rugby World Cup and the leading Irish betting sites go a general 5/4 that they appear in the semi-finals, while they are best odds of 12/5 to reach the final and 5/1 to lift the trophy.
