BOOKIES predict industry turnover for the World Cup could hit £100 million with William Hill alone expecting to take bets in excess of £20m.

As it stands an astonishing 26 per cent of Hills’ customers have backed England to win this year’s tournament that kicks off on Friday.

Wales, Australia and Ireland have attracted 12 per cent with the favourites New Zealand nine per cent of people’s choices – and Scotland even fewer.

“England are all the rage at present and if they win it will be the biggest payout in rugby betting history,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

It’s a different story at Unibet with 70 per cent of bets on New Zealand and one tenth of them on the hosts.

More than half of Unibet’s top try scorer bets are backing the Kiwis’ Nehe Milner-Skudder.

Here are some of their outright and special odds.

11/10 New Zealand; 4 England; 6 South Africa; 8 Australia; 9 Ireland; 16 France; 25 Wales; 66 Argentina; 150 Scotland; 500 Samoa; 1000 Bar

    Really like the look of Fiji plus 26 on the handicap for Friday against England. 5/6

    Scotland to go out in the quarters 5/6

    Dan Carter to be top points scorer 9/4

  2. ADC 1 year ago

    Derek, I completely agree with you about Fiji. +26 is a huge head start for them. I would see England winning by 10-15 points in a hard fought encounter. Fiji are playing well and have a new level of organisation in defence. Their attack speaks for itself.

    I also thought that Uruguay +66 against Wales was tempting. Undoubtedly Wales will win comfortably but their management will be keen to protect their key men having sustained so many big injuries already. I could see Uruguay scoring 10-15 points of their own meaning Wales would have to score roughly 80.

    I can’t imagine any teams conceding that many points in RWC2015.

    I can’t see past NZ outright but I’d be looking for 7/4 before backing them from the start.

    England are massively under priced when you consider the group they have to come through. They are also lacking in depth in the pack I think. NZ v Aus final for me.

    A spirited quarter final for the Scots I fancy too.

  3. ADC 1 year ago

    I also think the 9/4 on Carter is a bit skinny. It all depends how much game time he gets in the pool stages. Hanson will possibly only play his starting 15 against Argentina in the early stages.

    Pollard @ 8/1 ew and Cooper @ 14/1 ew represent a bit better value to me.

  4. Gunner 1 year ago

    Can’t believe the backing the Poms are getting. As mentioned they’ve got a brutal group to try get through 1st but you never know I suppose.

    Can’t look past SA come World Cup time. They’ve been outta form coming into the tournament but so were they in 1995 and 2007. Definitely worth a punt!

  5. ADC 1 year ago

    Agreed Gunner. They have a smooth looking route to the final if all goes to plan. Ireland look to have peaked too early as well. France have to be the best northern hemisphere chance, but it’d be a bit of a shock.

  6. ADC 1 year ago

    *Giteau @14/1 sorry. Not Cooper.

  7. gerdub 1 year ago

    Done Fiji canada Italy and uruguay with handicap, 14.5/1

  8. clean the bookies 1 year ago

    tans to win by 10 -15 pts seriously lads cop on . they will win by 20 plus easily.

  9. groggs 1 year ago

    Top try scorer Jermaine kaino nz he had 4 in the last world cup and at 125/1 and some easy pool games its worth a couple of quid

  10. Lyncher 1 year ago

    I think Fiji plus 26 is a good bet as they have been in camp for nearly three months now and will be fast out of the blocks. I also like Canada +40. All bookies should be offering even money on the handicap betting.

    If you do a 25euro bet with paddypower online for top try scorer, you get a five euro free bet every time they score

  12. Duncan Poundcake 1 year ago

    My thinking is Ireland and New Zealand will win their groups so can’t then meet until the final ,Ireland would then play the runner up in group C ,so they look good for a semi final place ,Ranked 3rd in the world they would have a chance against anyone in the semi so
    20% to win outright at 10/1
    80% to reach the final at 9/4

    • steve 1 year ago

      Stats are correct,but if england win group,and quarter would play ireland in semi,same as Australia and at 7/1 i think the aussies are the forgotten side,good luck anyway.

  13. mlac 1 year ago

  16. Hollywood Rainham 1 year ago

    5 try Total Tournament difference between Coral & Bet365 on up & overs. Also over England total points tonight looks value rather than handicap betting. I am on Corals over 280.5 tries.

  17. Alan 1 year ago

    Rugby world cup

    William Hill

    If your 1st try scorer selection scores 2nd

    we pay it as a winner

    If anyone is interested

    Not sure if Hills are doing this on every match in the world cup

  18. craigyboy 1 year ago

    Very 1st bash at betting on the rugby…I’m going to try and get into it to see if there’s any value for future matches.

    Nice double for tonight’s game and into Saturday

    Fiji +32 on the handicap

    Tonga -7 on the handicap

    Double pays Approx 1.2/1
    Bet Victor

  19. Ant 1 year ago

    Anthony Watson first try 7/1 well worth a shout if you back with will hill who will pay out on second try as well. Only for your first bet I believe so do check up.

    Anthony Watson 4/5 anytime for the more sensible.

    I will also go against the above and would like to believe England will cover the handicap -25 handicap without too much trouble.

    England -25 Evens

  20. clean the bookies 1 year ago

    Ireland will smash the hcap against Canada . I was right bout England. Canada lost to Fiji by 30 point in warm up game and to usa by 20. get on ireland -42

  21. Alistair kelly 1 year ago

    Tonga -8.5 the next one for me.
