2019 Rugby Championship: Round 2 Betting Tips

July 25th 2019, 12:17pm, By: matta91

The 2019 Rugby Championship continues this weekend with another two big games! New Zealand take on South Africa on Saturday before the Aussies face off against Argentina at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night! We preview both big games and give our betting tips below. 

2019 Rugby Championship Round 2 Betting Tips

New Zealand vs South Africa

Both the All Blacks and Springboks opened the Rugby Championship with victories and that sets up a fierce battle at Westpac Stadium on Saturday. The All Blacks travelled to Argentina and held on for victory against the Pumas by 4 points with a second-string side. In South Africa, the Springboks accounted for the Wallabies by 17 points. Interestingly, both sides really had their eyes on this contest after resting key starters for Round 1. So hopefully we see another epic battle between these two sides, which has been the case lately. Last year, both meetings were decided by just 2 points as the All Blacks won in South Africa 32-30 and the Springboks beat the All Blacks at this venue, 36-34. In 2019 and this matchup, we can’t see a blowout margin in either direction and the value looks to be either team by under 12.5 points. This could potentially be a World Cup Final preview and that should see some world-class Rugby this Saturday night.


Australia vs Argentina

After a disappointing result in South Africa, the Wallabies will face a tough test against the Pumas on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium. The Pumas pushed the All Blacks all the way last week, just falling short in the 20-16 defeat in Argentina. So they’ll head to Australia with a lot of confidence and they’ll be looking to continue the momentum despite a poor record in Australia. Meanwhile, the Wallabies can count themselves as unlucky in the 35-17 defeat against South Africa with a few decisions going against them. But ultimately, the Springboks are a tough side and the Wallabies defence wasn’t up to scratch. In the history between the Wallabies and the Pumas, it’s been all Australia especially down under. Since 1979, the Wallabies hold a 13-2 head to head record in Australia and they have won 7 of the last 8 meetings. However, the last time they met in Australia, the Pumas got the job done on the Gold Coast in a 23-19 result. The travel factor for Argentina is always a tough ask but with the Wallabies also travelling back from South Africa, we still great value in the Pumas at the line. It also wouldn’t surprise us if Argentina won this.
