HOW TO BET THE RUGBY WORLD CUP

Match Odds

This is the most basic type of rugby bet, and simply involves predicting the outcome of a match. You can bet on the home team to win, the away team to win, or the match to be drawn. The 3-way betting market is often used in Soccer Betting Odds and it parallels the rugby game.

Draw No Bet

This is a variation of the match odds market, and it means that your bet will be refunded if the match is drawn. This is a popular option for bettors who are not sure who will win the match, but they are confident that it will not be a draw.

Double Chance

This market allows you to bet on two of the three possible outcomes of a match. For example, you could bet on the home team to win or draw, or the away team to win or draw. Think of this wager of insurance for a bettor that has reservations or a lack of confidence in one of the teams.

Correct Score

This market is more difficult to win, but it offers higher odds. You need to correctly predict the exact score of a match in order to win your bet. While it's not easy, the payouts are generous.

Over/Under

This market is based on the total number of points scored in a match. You can bet on whether the total number of points will be over or under a certain number. The Over/Under is often also called Totals in American based sports.

Handicap

This betting market gives one team an advantage (or handicap) in terms of points before the match starts. This is designed to make the odds more evenly matched. Similar to the point-spread used in both the NFL and NCAAF betting markets.

To Progress

This market is used in tournaments to bet on which teams will progress to the next stage or which teams will win the entire tournament.
