Sportsbet is offering a juicy $21 for the Wallabies to remain undefeated. If you’re betting on our boys to win the tournament, will you be brave an enough to back them to win every match?
Australia’s Stage of Elimination Odds
Though most of us would love to see Australia crowned kings of Rugby what’s the actual chances of that happening? For starters the Wallabies will need to be at their best just to feature in the finals. With the host nation and Wales also in Pool A, Australia aren’t guaranteed a top two to finish in their group. An Australian exit before the knockout rounds is currently $3 on Sportsbet.
If Australia top their pool, they’ll probably face Scotland or Samoa in the quarter finals, however if they finish second then they’ll likely meet South Africa. It’d be best to avoid the latter, though the Wallabies beat the Springboks in their most recent encounter. The Wallabies won their quarter final against the Springboks in 2011 but they’re $3.30 to be eliminated in the quarters this year. Australia’s run 4 years ago was ended by the hosts and eventual champions New Zealand. The Wallabies are $4 to fall in the final four once again.
But what about if our Green and Gold side make it all the way to the decider? Australia’s last appearance in the final ended in heart break after Johnny Wilkinson booted England to victory in Sydney in 2003. The Aussies are $6.50 to finish runner-up, which would be cruel… Unless you’ve bet on that scenario of course!
Why not wager and where the Wallabies will finish at the World Cup and you might be a winner even if they’re not!
