Palmerbet's Price Boost on Australia to Pump Pumas
October 22, 2015
It’s true… The Wallabies were 1 correct call from an embarrassing exit from the Rugby World Cup. (Sorry Scotland) But after a lucky escape against the Scots were expecting Australia to pick up their act against Argentina. The Wallabies are $1.40 favourites with Palmerbet to beat the Pumas in their semi final while the Argentina are $3.05 outsiders. But if you’re chasing juicer odds on the Aussies you may be interested in Palmerbet’s price boost.
Palmerbet’s Price Boost on Australia
Palmerbet have enhanced Australia’s odds to beat Argentina by 13+ to $3.50. The bookmaker’s clients can place a maximum $50 wager on the Wallabies to win by more than 12 points at this boosted price. The regular odds on Australia to win by 13 or above is currently around $2.90.
Why Australia Will be better against the Pumas
After performing above expectations in the pool stage, the Scotland scare may have been just what Australia need. Still Michael Cheika’s charges did manage 5 tries in their quarter final and may have secured the game earlier had a few more conversions gone over. (Though nobody’s blaming Bernard Foley as he kicked the one the counted the most) Australia will also get 2 top players back against Argentina with David Pocock and big Izzy returning to the team.
Aussies are Ready for Argentina
Ireland may have been surprised by Argentina’s running rugby game but the Wallabies will know what to expect having already faced the South American’s this year. Australia pumped the Pumas 34-9 on their way to winning in the Rugby Championship. It was their tenth win in their last 11 games against the Pumas while Australia are unbeaten against their opposition at the World Cup. The Aussies have recorded 2 comprehensive victories at previous tournaments.
Yes Argentina have been brilliant in the competition however Australia at their best should secure a spot in the final. But is Palmerbet’s promotion tempting enough to back our boys to win with ease?
