In the lead up to the first game of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, we've taken a look at England’s form and which bookmaker offers the best odds on the tie.
England vs Fiji Odds
As expected, online bookmakers offer England as favourites to win their match against Fiji with betting odds extremely short due to the difference in the two teams.
England's Betting Odds
Currently Coral.co.uk offer the best odds on an England win at 1/33. With such short odds it's hardly worth a punt as the returns will be so low.
They do offer new signups a 'bet £5, get £20 in bonus bets' deal which would probably be the best reason to bet on England in their match against Fiji.
If you’re betting on England in this game you may need to look at other markets including first try-scorer or half-time or full-time score bets for better odds.
Fiji's Betting Odds
Fiji, who are currently ranked 9th in the World, shouldn't present too much of a problem for England and hence bookmakers betting odds are quite attractive.
If you’re betting on a Fiji win, Betway.com offer the best odds at 25/1 as well as offering to match new signups first bets (min £10, max £30) with a bonus bet of equal value.
Odds On The Draw
While a draw is an unlikely outcome, PaddyPower.com offer huge odds of 80/1, which when coupled with their new account offer of 'bet £10, get £30' could be worth a punt.
England To Win RWC2015
While England are worthy contenders to win the 2015 Rugby World cup, they've openly admitted that the current squad isn’t as strong as they could be.
In saying that, it they can top their pool; England could make the Rugby World Cup Final without having to meet bookmakers favourites New Zealand or South Africa.
This could be key to their success in the tournament, as they would probably face Scotland and potentially France or Ireland in the semi-finals.
England haven’t lost to a European team at Twickenham in over 3 years, and if they can top their pool they could easily reach the final on Saturday October 31st.
The biggest challenge the England squad face is the fact that they’ve not been playing consistently, and tend to falter against the better teams.
While they have the ability to beat anyone on the day, their confidence is lacking and it could prove too difficult to play to the best of their ability in every game.
England played their strongest starting line-up against Ireland last weekend and they will have to continue with it if they want to come through their pool.
Starting with Fiji on Friday, England then go on to meet Wales and Australia before their final pool game against Uruguay on Saturday October 10th.
Although England’s last World Cup was a disaster, they’ll be hoping for a much better result this time round and are in a much stronger position than 2011.
