Australia v New Zealand

Saturday 10th August, 7:45pm

The All Blacks have lost just two of the last 22 against the Wallabies and it is hard to see them being threatened in Perth. The All Blacks have won three of the last four meetings against the Wallabies in Australia by 25-plus and overall have won nine of their last 11 against the men in gold by 17 or more.

The Wallabies have dropped four of their last six home Tests.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – New Zealand -11.5


Argentina v South Africa

Sunday 11th August, 5:40am

The early money came for Argentina as soon as betting opened and that is the sharp play. Argentina have won two of their last three home Tests against South Africa and the Springboks have won just two of the last seven Tests in Argentina by more than a try.

South Africa have won just six of their last 21 Tests outside of South Africa.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Argentina +6.5

New Zealand v South Africa

Saturday 27th July, 5:35pm

South Africa have played the All Blacks very tight in their last three Tests and can continue that run in Wellington. The Springboks and All Blacks have played three straight Tests decided by two points or fewer with a South African win in Wellington during that span.

New Zealand have lost two of their last three Tests in Wellington. South Africa have suffered only one double-digit loss in their last 10 road games.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – South Africa +10.5


Australia v Argentina

Saturday 27th July, 7:45pm

Argentina got the money when the two teams last met in Australia last year but the Wallabies have well and truly had the Pumas’ number. Seven of the last eight Wallabies-Pumas clashes have resulted in Australian double-digit wins.

Argentina have lost three of their last 19 games outside of their homeland with 10 of their last 11 losses on foreign soil coming by nine points or more. The Wallabies are primed to bounce back after last week.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Australia -6.5

South Africa v Australia

Sunday 21st July, 1:05am

The Springboks and the Wallabies have played some close ones recently so the plus is the play. There has been just one double digit margin in the last seven Tests to go with two draws and a further three games decided by six or fewer. The Springboks have won just 8 of their last 21 home Tests.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Australia +5.5


Argentina v New Zealand

Sunday 21st July, 4:05am

The All Blacks look the play against the Pumas laying a decent number. The Jaguares made a real impact in Super Rugby this year but Argentina are 2-12 in their last 14 home Tests and have lost seven of their last nine home Tests by 13 or more. The All Blacks have won six straight and 14 of 15 against the Pumas by 15-plus points.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – New Zealand -13.5
