Bet365 Bet Builder Feature – Review

Bet365
A lot of times when you are looking at online betting, you get an urge to create something that just specifically suits an occasion. There are times when you get a good inkling of what could happen in a football match, beyond what the outcome is going to be in the match outright. The Bet365 Bet Builder is a feature of the operator’s website that allows users to create their own wagers. That is something that we wanted to explore a  little further.

Building a Bet

This is a feature which is available to customers at Bet365 and the operation of it all seems simple enough. We quickly accessed the feature just by just clicking on a game and then the Bet Builder option was across the header for that match. In clicking the Bet Builder option for a game it delivers a pop-up window from where selections are made, and this was really accessible and user-friendly. In the Bet Builder up to six selections can be pooled together to create a bet of your very own making and upon opening the Bet365 Bet Builder it was a straightforward process to pick those selections. The menu quickly lists options to choose from like the Match Result, Both Teams To Score, Number of Goals Scored in the match, the number of Corners that will happen in the match and Plays to Score (options including anytime goalscorer, first goalscorer, last goalscorer etc).

Odds and Editable Options

After a few quick clicks of favourable selections, a click of the Calculate Odds button reveals what we were looking at in terms of odds. We did also find it really easy to go back in and edit the options for a game. A single click tool options back out of the bet and by just going through the same original process of adding selections, allowed the addition of new options. Each time that options were swapped around in the Bet Builder, it was just another click of the Calculate Odds button and we knew where the odds stood. Once content with the bet created it was just one more click to add it to the betting slip, locking in the odds at the time of selection. That was all it took and it wasn’t any different from clicking around the usual options in the sportsbook to come up with what we wanted. We found the efficiency of the feature to be excellent in our experience of it.

What Appeals

It is having that creativity to pull together a bet of your own creation, that personalisation of a wager which makes this feature really appealing for us. Bet365 in our opinion has made it really easy to go about all of this because it is just so simple to pull together your wager from the options that qualify for a Bet Builder. It does add a nice new dimension to football betting instead of just browsing around in the sportsbook and looking around for the different bits and pieces that you would need to do this.

Example of a Bet Builder Wager

Here is a walk through of using the Bet Builder option for a Premier League game between Manchester United and Chelsea that we used to explore the feature (using odds at the time of writing just for the purpose of the example). The Manchester United v Chelsea game that we looked at was fancied to go under 2.5 goals because most of the big clashes in the Premier League between the top-six sides are pretty tense, tight tussles. At the time of writing, under 2.5 goals at Bet365 for the fixture was at 7/10. However, the Bet Builder allowed us to expand on the expectancy of a low scoring game. The Under 2.5 goals option was added first and then we looked at the Both Teams To Score market and took a selection of both teams NOT to score in the first half, when teams are generally working their way into a game, feeling each other out. Based on current form at the time of the fixture it was Manchester United’s home form which looked the more likely to win out on the day, but again, expecting a tight battle between two good teams at Old Trafford, a Manchester United to win by a one-goal margin was added to the Bet Builder. Those three options that we created for the fixture was offer at 13/2 odds. Manchester United v Chelsea Under 2.5 goals regular market @7/10 Manchester United v Chelsea Bet Builder Under 2.5 goals + Both teams NOT to score in the first half + Man Utd to win by a one-goal margin @13/2 odds So you can see we expanded on our original notion that it would be a tight game between the two clubs in the fixture, by taking the original Under 2.5 goals and combining it with likely options that would crop up in the game to back up that original assumption.

Summary

We really enjoyed our experience of the Bet365 Bet Builder. One of the things that we liked the most was that it was just there, easily accessible. It didn't matter which of the games we went to look at, it was just sat there in the header for the game and that allowed a quick process of getting to the feature and then building the bet that we wanted.  It was great to delve into the different markets and click on what appealed to us. In summary it is one of those features that are just nice to know that they are when you want to add a little creativity to betting session and we would it an all-round hit.

Terms and Conditions

There are terms and conditions of course which come along with this and notably, one of them is that this does only apply to pre-match markets, this is nothing to do with in-play. The bet will be struck as a single bet only so you can’t combine your final bet with anything else. Importantly it is also worth noting that the Bet Builder wagers won't be eligible for Cash Out nor can you go back in and use the Bet365 Edit Bet feature on it either once you have placed it. You have a maximum of six markets in a Bet Builder bet and the Bet365 '2 Goals Ahead Early Payout' does not apply to bets created with the feature either. If any of the markets within a bet created with the Bet Builder happens to be voided or pushed then the entire wager will be voided/pushed. Just as an example of that, if you have picked a goalscorer which doesn’t play then the entire bet, is just voided.

Super Bowl LII Betting 2018 – Winner Odds & Prediction

Brady, New England Patriots - © GEPA pictures
It is the first Sunday of February coming up on the 4th and that means that it is Super Bowl time, the conclusion to the NFL 2017/18 season. This is Super Bowl LII (52) and it is being held at the US Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota and it is the New England Patriots who are going into the fixture as 1/2 favourites at Bet365* (betting odds taken January 30th at 6:16 p.m.) who will be looking to land a successful title defence having beaten out the Atlanta Falcons twelve months ago in one of the greatest Super Bowls in history. This time around they get a challenge from the Philadelphia Eagles which sets up a rematch of the 2005 Super Bowl which New England won 24-21. This will be just the third appearance in the Super Bowl for the Eagles, who failed on their two previous attempts to capture the biggest prize in the sport (at Super Bowl XV and XXXIX). Can the underdogs have their day? The Patriots are the designated home team, which means they get choice of jersey and they are wearing white.

Super Bowl 2018 Infographic

Reigning Champion

The Pats are the reigning champions having mounted an epic comeback in last year’s Super Bowl against the Atlanta Falcons. New England were trailing by 25 points in the third quarter but miraculously Tom Brady managed to find a way to haul the Pats back into action and they scored 19 unanswered points in the final quarter to take the game to overtime. The Patriots won the toss, received the ball in overtime and powered their way down the field to finish off with a 2-yard touchdown by James White. It was a stunning fixture because of that fightback and during the game, 30 team and individual Super Bowl records were broken because of it. Pats quarterback Brady broke three records himself as he went on to collect the Super Bowl MVP award for the fourth time in his career as well. He is unquestionably, the greatest in the game.

Super Bowl LII Odds*

New England Patriots 1/2, Philadelphia Eagles 17/10

Super Bowl LII Points Spread Odds*

New England Patriots -4.5 20/21, Philadelphia Eagles +4.5 20/23

New England Patriots

The Pats are the elite in the game and the dynasty that head coach Bill Belichick and superstar quarterback Tom Brady have created is second to none. They went into the season as the favourites to go all the way again and they finished the regular season with a 13-3 record. They were the AFC number one side after a tie-breaking procedure but they weren’t without their issues through the campaign. They were a bit shaky defensively and it took a while for them to get going added some free-agent signings to bolster their ranks. They were only ranked 29th in yards allowed defensively, but they were fifth when it came to points given up over the course of the season. Frankly when it came to their back up defence, after looking so poor early on the season, when they were only 2-2 after four matches, to come out at the back end of the season with such a strong secondary, was highly impressive. In the postseason, the Pats got a first round bye and then took out the Tennessee Titans easily enough as Brady was in ripe form guiding New England to a 35-14 success. Then it was a tough duel against the Jacksonville Jaguars for them in the AFC Championship game. The Pats found themselves down 20-10 in the fourth quarter but once again, the team rested on the shoulders of Brady, who delivered a stunning comeback through late touchdown passes to Danny Amendola.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles posted a 13-3 record matching that of New England through the regular season (two other teams, Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers also matched), but through tie-breaking procedures, the Eagles got the NFC Number One status for the postseason. This season was a huge step forward for the Eagles who had posted a 7-9 record in each of their previous two seasons. The key offensive link for the Eagles this season was quarterback Carson Wentz and tight end Zach Ertz. They added extra firepower through free agency signings of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to give Wentz extra targets to hit. Defensively they ranked fourth in the NFL for fewest yards allowed, a huge contrast to that of the New England Patriots in that stat. They were solid in the secondary as well, with plenty of depth and they are going to need that to be firing on all cylinders right from the off in Minnesota on the weekend. After going 10-2 across their opening twelve matches of the season, the Eagles were dealt a major blow when Wentz suffered a season-ending injury which meant that the experienced Nick Foles had to take up the reins for the rest of the season. It’s a testament to him and the team that they managed to get all the way to the Super Bowl and he didn’t throw an intercepted pass throughout the entire play offs. In the postseason the Eagles took down last year’s losing Super Bowl finalists the Atlanta Falcons in a tight game, their defence really stepping it up when the Falcons were heaping pressure on them. The Eagles squeezed through 15-10 to go and face the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game. With the Vikings looking to become the first ever side to play at Super Bowl at home, it was a brilliant performance from the Eagles which won the day 38-7, again their defence going strong through the match. Philadelphia will be lining up with two players who were on the Patriot’s winning roster from last season, Chris Long and LeGarrette Blount, the latter having had a huge impact for Philadelphia this season.

Super Bowl XXXIX Rematch

Back in the 2005 Super Bowl when the two of them met, it was a tight contest right down the line, with the Patriots just coming through in the match in Jacksonville, Florida by winning the final quarter 10-7 after going into the last period at 14-14. From that match up, it is only Tom Brady who remains on either team. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was the head coach back then.

Super Bowl LII Prediction

It is likely to be a very cold day in Minnesota on Sunday. Throughout the play offs this season underdogs have gone 9-1 against the spread, with only New England the only favourite to cover in beating the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round. The Eagles were underdogs against both Atlanta and Minnesota in the play offs, and there is no scenario that the Pats were ever going to be an underdog in a game during the postseason. They aren’t for the Super Bowl although this could well be a tight battle on the day. The Eagles at 4.5 points on the spread for 20/20 at Bet365* (betting odds taken January 30th at 6:16 p.m.) has some appeal. In New England’s last four Super Bowl victories, they have won by three points twice, four points once and then last year’s six points margin (which was lucky). The Eagles have a very good defence and will be in this all the way most likely. While ultimately they may come up short in terms of winning the game, they can cover a tight spread.

WTA & ATP Tennis Weekly Betting Preview and Predictions

Tennis Betting
So the Australian Open is in the bag and Women’s winner Caroline Wozniacki is scheduled to put in an immediate appearance out in St Petersburg this week. Maybe she hadn't really planned on going the distance in Melbourne? Anyway, she is the 11/2 favourite at bet365* (Betting Odds took on January 29th, 2018 at 7:03 p.m.) to go and follow up her first Grand Slam title with a success at the St Petersburg Ladies Trophy this week. However, there should be plenty of value in actually opposing her this week. You could see in her Australian Open Final just how much the tournament and it’s crazy temperatures had taken out of her. Both Wozniacki and Halep were feeling the heat badly and to immediately turn around after such an exhausting and emotional fortnight and be expected to win another tournament is a bit of a big ask. At short odds, Wozniakci certainly isn’t worth taking a look at particularly in this one. So where could value lie? Kristina Mladenovic is the main player opposing Wozniacki in the top half of the draw. The French woman is the reigning champion at the tournament as well and we like that bit of tournament history to get behind her. She is a big old 18/1 price at bet365* (Betting Odds taken on January 29th, 2018 at 7:03 p.m.) though to win this, but that leaves her at great each way value to at least reach the final. If Mladenovic can negotiate the way past the second round where she could have a scrap against Dominika Cibulkova, there’s no reason why she can’t reach the showcase match from the top half of the table. Down in the bottom half of the draw there is Julia Goerges, Caroline Garcia and Jelena Ostapenko all with a decent amount of equal appeal to make a run. Of them, Goerges is the one with the better form in the new year having claimed a title already. But young Ostapenko is worth a look here at 8/1 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds taken on January 29th, 2018 at 7:03 p.m.) to win the tournament. That will be based on the dynamics of the draw. She has such an easy quarter to get through as it contained three wild cards and a lucky loser, that the young Latvian could make a decent run in the tournament.

WTA St Petersburg Ladies Tennis betting odds

Caroline Wozniacki 11/2, Julia Goerges 11/2, caroline Garcia 7/1, Petra Kvitova 7/1, Jelena Ostapenko 8/1, Dominika Cibulkova 14/1, Katerina Siniakova 14/1, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 18/1, Daria Kasatkina 18/1, 25/1 bar There is nothing happening on the ATP Tour this week as the first round of the 2018 Davis Cup is played on February 2nd through to the 4th. Great Britain will be starting as third seeds for this years even and they have a tricky opener against Spain out in Marbella on the clay. At least they won’t have to face the injured Rafael Nadal anyway.

UEFA Nations League Betting 2018/2019 Groups Draw & Winner Odds

Football Betting
The draw for the first-ever UEFA National League has been completed (in Lausanne, Switzerland) and the new tournament  should produce some exciting fixtures as well, such as the Republic of Ireland and Wales coming together, while the Netherlands, France and Germany have been piled into one group and England get to challenge Spain and Croatia in theirs. This is all for the new league system created by UEFA, with promotion and relegation at stake as well. On top of that, the UEFA Nations League offers, an albeit complicated, back door passage for four teams to get to the European Championships.

What is the UEFA Nations League?

UEFA came up with a plan to fill in the void in those years that don’t have a European Championships or a World Cup. The plan was to get a lot more competitive action going between the European nations to try and improve the standard of the game across the continent, as well as to eliminate some of the meaningless friendly matches that is generally a plague on the international scene.

How did the draw work?

Each of the 55 UEFA nations were split across four Leagues based on their current rankings. The top twelve ranked sides in Europe went to League A, those ranked 13-24 went to League B, then the next fifteen went to League C and the final sixteen went into League D. Each of the Leagues has four groups within them consisting of either three or four teams and this is where relegation/promotion works. A team getting relegated from League A Group 2 drops to League B Group 2, while, for example, the winner of Group 3 in League D goes up to the Group 3 in League C. So the teams can only move up and down through the Leagues in their designated Group number. What this will do is allow the lower ranked teams to potentially make their way up the Leagues to face higher ranked side and therefore have more of a chance of playing competitive action against better sides. Each team will play the other teams in their group twice (home and away) for a season of the UEFA Nations League.

When will the games be played?

In a period between September and November 2018 (a ten week period in total) all of the matches in this season’s UEFA Nations League will take place. A team finishing top of a group will get promoted, anyone finishing bottom of a group will go down a tier. The exception to this is the winner of the League A groups. All four of those will move through a Nations League knockout stage in the following year to decide the winner.

What about Euro Qualifying

This is where things get a little confusing. Qualifying for Euro 2020 will see the 55 nations split over ten groups and the top two automatically go through to the finals. So that has been made a little simpler. All qualifiers for Euro 2020 will happen between March and November 2019. The seeding for the European Championships will be based on performances in the Nations League. Seeing two qualifiers progress from each of the ten groups only adds up to twenty nations and that leaves four Euro 2020 places open and this is where the UEFA Nations League comes back into play. Each of the four tiers in the Nations League will produce four group winners. Those sixteen teams will be the ones to go through to a play-off to compete for the final four places at Euro 2020. However, if a group winner has already qualified for Euro 2020 through normal qualification, then their place in the play offs will go to the next highest-ranked team from their Nations League tier. So for example, if Northern Ireland won Group Three in League B of the Nations League, but also went and directly qualified for Euro 2020, they don’t go to the Euro 2020 qualification play offs, the next highest ranked team from their tier will go to the play-offs instead. So performance in the Nations League can have extra importance. Basically it will boil down to one team from each of the four UEFA Nations League getting a place at Euro 2016 from the play-offs as each of the Leagues will have their own path through the Euro 2020 qualification play offs. So this system gives lower-ranked sides a chance to play on the big stage where they would usually find normal qualification too hard to pull off.

UEFA Nations League Odds Outright Winner Odds

Spain 7/2, Germany 4/1, Belgium 11/2, France 5/1, Italy 9/1, England 12/1, Portugal 14/1, Croatia 20/1, Switzerland 33/1, Poland 40/1, Netherlands 50/1, bar 80/1

Predictions

There is a lot of actual competitive international football coming along on the horizon and that has to be a good thing for the game. In terms of an overall winner of the Nations League then you're still going to be looking at the big guns. Spain looks the most obvious choice out of the lot because of the draw and that's because they have an easier group ahead of them. It’s easier to predict them winning their group and getting to the knockouts than it is for either France and Germany who are lumped together. The ones who could impress too are Belgium who should win their group and get to the knockouts. It’s all up in the air until we see how seriously everyone takes this, but Spain and Belgium (7/2 and 11/2 respectively at bet365) aren’t bad places to start *betting odds taken January 25th, 2018 at 01:04 a.m.)

How Man City have dominated the Premier League Winner market

Manchester City
The Premier League title race is almost a third of the way done and dusted, and the season (and therefore the title race) has been dominated by one team and one team alone, Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s charges have been the ones to catch, having set a phenomenal pace at the top of the pile and breaking records. No amount of investments over the summer, nor any potentially signings to come in the January transfer window for anyone else, appears as if will be enough to slowing up the Citizens on their title march.

City’s continuous odds drop

Manchester City opened the new season on August 12th when they took a 2-0 win at the newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion. On that date, Bet365 had the Citizens priced up at 6/4 to win the Premier League title. Their odds since then have continued to tumble and tumble thanks to their stunning winning form and goal output and on September 9th when they went out and destroyed Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad that was when things started to work their way towards even money. Premier League Odds Development The Citizens hit the even money mark with bet365 in mid September as they just continued to keep winning matches and right at the end of September when they put in an impressive performance to beat reigning champions, Chelsea, the Citizens dropped to odds-on for the first time, going as short as 8/11 in the title race. Towards the end of October that was down to 1/5 and that price was chopped even further as the close of November rolled around, with the Citizens at 1/10 for the title.

Main Challengers Fall

Naturally, with such a strong outright contender coming to the fore in the Premier League title betting, it means that there were significant changes going the other way in the odds development. Manchester United, who put together a great unbeaten streak of form from the start to the season were right there matching their great rivals in the outright market through to around the middle of September but with a slump from mid October to the start of November, the Red Devils went on the drift as Manchester City kept their winning momentum going. The Red Devils started really going on the drift in mid September out to 5/2 and then 7/2 at significant points and after a small recovery, towards the end of October Bet365 had them out at 10/1 to win the league title from just 4/1 earlier that month. Jose Mourinho’s men had hit a high of 14/1 odds in the Premier League outright winner market towards the end of November. Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea who hadn’t been backed that well from the off to retain their title followed a similar odds progression path to that of Manchester United's and they found themselves out at 20/1 in the middle of November. Tottenham's decline in odds in the Premier League outright winner market was a little less severe. They couldn’t get themselves under the 10/1 mark to win the title and that price had almost trebled in November as the Lilywhites were apparently struggling to balance Champions League success with domestic success and suffered a couple of high profile losses away from home to Arsenal and Manchester United to see their challenge wane.

Arsenal and Liverpool implode

The two clubs of the big Premier League six that have suffered the most rapid and severe drift in odds are Liverpool and Arsenal. Neither of them looked a particularly strong wager, nothing more than an outside bet at best through the entire season, but around the middle of September, Liverpool were actually seeing their odds trimmed down and getting closer to that of Chelsea in single figures. But then a steep and rapid decline beset them as their clinical finishing went and their defence continued to throw away cheap goasl and just a couple of months later were massive 50/1 shots at bet365 to win the league. Arsenal went from around 25/1 in mid September to 66/1 outside shots by the middle of November.

Premier League Probabilities

As most punters know, odds are linked with probability. The smaller the odds then the more probably an event is likely to occur. This is all calculated into e odds. You work this out yourself from either decimal or fractional odds. Fractional Odds Probability: 8/13 = 61.9% probability. [{13/(8+13)}*100]. Decimal Odds Probability 2.20 = 45.45% [(1/2.2)*100]. So the probability of Manchester City winning the league title has been getting stronger and stronger all season with the cutting of their outright odds. The big momentum shift again was around mid September when the Citizens really started separating themselves from the rest of thepacl. That is when Man City’s probability sky rocketed and their man challengers, Manchester United's pretty much tanked. Now it has left the rest of the top six with a diminished probability of winning the league, but the biggest losers in terms of whose probability has taken the biggest hit, is Manchester United, down from around 30% to under 10% within the space of a couple of months.

Carl Frampton v Horacio Garcia Boxing Winner Odds & Predictions – November 18th, 2017

Sports Betting
Carl Frampton returns to the ring for the first time since losing against Leo Santa Cruz back in January. He takes on Mexico's Horacio Garcia at the Odyssey in Belfast on Saturday night and “The Jackal” needs a big, convincing performance in this one, especially with the eyes of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez watching on from ringside as he supports his fellow countryman Garcia. Frampton’s loss to Leo Santa Cruz was the first loss of his professional career and the Northern Ireland star is the massive odds-on favourite at 1/100 with bet365 to collect a win in this one. It certainly won’t be the toughest opponent that Frampton has ever met, but now this is just a rebuilding process to get back to the top. There is no belt, nothing at stake in this one other than a reset victory that Frampton needs. After that majority decision defeat to Santa Cruz, Frampton is now 23-1 in his career record with fourteen knockouts in that sequence. Frampton can be backed at 4/9 with bet365 to win by KO TKO or Disqualification on Saturday night in what is a big bill in Belfast. Frampton believes that the presence of Alvarez will just heap more pressure on Garcia instead of him. Alvarez lost that epic famous bout against Gennady Golovkin just back in September, suffering his first professional fight of his career. Garcia holds a professional career record of 33-3-1 from his 37 fights and he is just a bit of a journeyman more than anything not really ever looking close to getting to the top of the sport. His big success was winning the WBC World Super Bantamweight title back in 2010. He has had a busy year though as this will be his fight of 2017. He rattled off wins over Josu Veraza and Fernando Vargas in the first half of the year, the latter on the big stage at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. He then suffered a loss against Diehl Olguin in July before getting revenge over the same opponent in mid-September with a TKO. He must know that he is being used as nothing more than a stepping stone by Frampton and Garcia is massive 16/1 underdog at bet365. Frampton, of course, has bigger plans. He really wants another crack at Leo Santa Cruz as it is one each between the two fighters now. The Other name that Frampton has mentioned as a target is Lee Selby but first things first, he needs to rebuild confidence with a positive win in this one. He’ll likely deliver it too and Frampton can finish this under 7.5 rounds for a quote of even money easily.

Wales v Australia Rugby Betting Odds & Preview – 11th November, 2017

Rugby Betting
It’s a big opener to the Autumn Series of internationals for Wales as they welcome Australia. Owen Williams is going to get a chance to show off his attacking skills as he comes into the centre to face the Wallabies for the first time. While this is a game in which there is going to be a lot of pressure on Williams now, it is the defensive midfield area which is more likely going to be the key factor in Wales winning this one. There is no Justin TIpuric, Sam Warburton or Dan Lydiate around for the Welsh in this one and they are going into the game with a new look back row, Gatland rewarding form from his players. Wales will have seen how much Japan recently disputed Australia at the breakdown and that will be a great area for the Welsh to get under the skin of the visitors in. That is where Toby Faletau and Josh Navidi are going to have a chance to shine. Wales had a disappointing Six Nations campaign this year winning just two of their five matches and finishing second from bottom of the table. They have produced a W4 L3 record for the calendar year in their internationals and the defeats were against France and Scotland out on the road in the Six Nations while suffering a home loss at the Millennium Stadium against England. In their short summer tour, they took wins over Tonga and Samoa. They are a price of 17/10 at bet365 to pull of the home win. In the Wales v Australia head to head, there have been 40 previous matches and the Australians have won 29 of those and have drawn one. The Wallabies are currently on a record winning streak against the Welsh, having won each of their last twelve against them, a run stretching back to 28th November 2009. That's some pretty strong form them and Australia are 1/2 odds on favourites with Bet365 to win this game. Australia found New Zealand too much to handle in the Rugby Championship this year, losing both games against the All Blacks, while drawing their two matches against South Africa and winning both against Argentina. So in the 2017 calendar year, Australia have gone W6 D2 L3. Two of those defeats were against New Zealand as mentioned and the other was a shock loss at home in Sydney against Scotland in the summer, the Wallabies going down 19-24. But they do have the form against Wales and on their last visit to Wales, back on November 5th, 2016, they ran out easy 32-8 winners. They will have a battle on their hands but they will still be expecting to deliver a win. The Wallabies get Will Genia and Bernard Foley for the game, who both sat out their win over Japan last weekend. Australia beat the Japanese by 33 points, but they were under huge pressure at the breakdown with Japan doing a fantastic job of disrupting their play. Marika Koroibete goes as 8/1 bet365 First Try scorer favourite.

England v Argentina Rugby Betting Odds & Preview

Rugby Betting
So the excitement of the Autumn Series of Rugby internationals starts at Twickenham for England on the weekend as they play host to Argentina. Head Coach Eddie Jones has given a rest to Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje for the match. There was a suggestion from him that he was going to rest some of the players from the British and Irish Lions Tour but he has thrown in some of them like Mako Vunipola and Elliot Daly into the mix. Henry Slade after his performance on the tour of Argentina earlier this year has seen in him in ahead of Alex Lozowski at 12. Whichever way you look at it, there is going to be a strong England side out on Saturday and Dylan Hartley will again captain the side. While this, of course, is not the toughest match that England are going to be playing this year, it is a good opener for them and they can warm up for their big clash against Australia the following weekend, before finishing off their Autumn action against Samoa. This is all building towards the Six Nations early next year of course. England won the 2017 Six Nations, despite losing their final match against Ireland. That loss is their only one of 2017 and they have suffered only the one defeat in their last twenty one internationals now. So they will be heavy favourites for this one of course and beat Argentina twice in the summer. Overall these two nations have come into contact 22 times before and England have won seventeen and drawn one of those. Argentina’s last success over England was in June 2009 and have lost their subsequent eight games against them. Eddie Jones had a great look at the depth that is available to him as a second string England went out to Tour Argentina and they beat the Pumas in both Tests, the first one a 34-4 win and then finishing with a 25-10 victory over the South Americans. There doesn’t look to be much danger of England not winning this one and so it’s to the handicap market where an England -20 at bet365 is a price of 10/11. Argentina once again failed to make an impact in the Rugby Championship this year as they lost all six of their matches and took a defensive hammering. The Pumas have completed nine matches this year so they have been busy and they have been busy losing in most of them. They have lost all of those fixtures this year and their only triumph was a victory against Georgia. Each of their last six defeats have been by a margin of seventeen points or bigger. The Pumas are 8/1 price at bet36 to pull off an almighty shock in this one.
