Ireland move into their toughest match since closing out this year’s Six Nations successfully against England.

They step onto the pitch to face the most formidable team in World Rugby, which is New Zealand.

The All Blacks arrive in form having won the Rugby Championship again this year and having already beaten Wales this Autumn.

Ireland Preview – Can the Irish cause an upset?

There is form from Ireland who have won their last six international matches, three of those in the Six Nations.

The Irish had started that Six Nations campaign with defeats against Wales and France, but then they came good to win their final three fixtures of the campaign.

So far this Autumn, Ireland warmed up with a comfortable victory over the USA.

Then they went into the first of their Autumn Internationals, thumping Japan 60-5.

The degree of quality that they face on Saturday goes up exponentially as they take on the All Blacks.

Ireland are the 10/3 underdogs in rugby betting for Saturday’s fixture* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 11th, 2021).

While last weekend’s triumph over Japan was easy, it got some energy into the Irish legs and they were scoring freely.

There has only been one change made by Ireland from last weekend’s starting lineup.

Ireland can look to recent successes over the All Blacks and they are W2 L2 in their last four against the Southern Hemisphere giants.

Our betting prediction:
NZ 11-20 Winning Margin

Ireland pulled off a victory over New Zealand in Chicago in 2016 and then when they hosted them in Dublin a couple of years later.

The most recent meeting between the two nations was at the 2019 World Cup, New Zealand winning 46-14 in the quarter-finals.

In the last twelve meetings between the two nations, Ireland have a W2 L10 record against the All Blacks.

An Ireland +10 handicap is at a quote of even money for rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 11th, 2021).

Three of the last four meetings have been settled by a margin of at least 11 points.


New Zealand Preview – All Blacks are full strength

New Zealand sent out a second-string last weekend as they romped to success over Italy.

That built on a big opening win of this Autumn Series that they produced against Wales.

New Zealand beat the Welsh 54-15 in a one-sided contest.

Not too surprisingly, New Zealand are a quote for 2/9 in the match outright for Saturday’s rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 11th, 2021).

Both Beauden Barrett and Jordie Barrett are in the line-up with Sevu Reece staying on the wing.

This is pretty much the same starting line up that New Zealand put out against Wales.

Earlier this year the All Blacks claimed the Rugby Championship with a W5 L1 record.

The one defeat was in basically what was a dead rubber against South Africa in the final round of action.

It has been a W13 L1 record from New Zealand in their last fourteen matches.

New Zealand have produced at least 30 points in all but one of their last ten internationals.

They boast threats from all over the field and a New Zealand -11 handicap is at a quote of Evens* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 11th, 2021).

With the more recent action of the Rugby Championship under their belt, New Zealand are tuned up.

They haven’t come into this Autumn Series cold, which makes things even more difficult for opponents.

The All Blacks will have one final match in this Autumn series to come, as they face France the following weekend.


Ireland vs New Zealand Betting Advice

The All Blacks are in a good run of form at the moment and under Ian Foster are starting to build a big new era.

They will, like the rest of the big guns in world rugby, be gearing up towards the World Cup next year.

New Zealand look in a bullish enough mood to take this and the New Zealand -11 handicap may be worth considering at Even Money* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 13th, 2021).


Key Facts – Ireland vs New Zealand Betting Tip

  • Ireland have won their last six internationals
  • Ireland are W2 L10 in their last dozen against New Zealand
  • New Zealand have won 13 of their last 14 internationals


Ireland’s slips against Wales and France in the Six Nations this year indicates that they aren’t quite where they want to be.

Granted they responded well to topple both England and Scotland during the run-in, but they are likely to come up short against a full-strength All Blacks side.

New Zealand 11-20 winning margin at 11/4 is the other rugby betting selection* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT on November 11th, 2021).
