Luckily for fans of betting on rugby, bettingexpert’s top tipsters will be on hand to deliver rugby predictions throughout the rugby season. In England, rugby and cricket vie for second place behind football, but in Ireland, Wales, France, Australia, New Zealand and many other nations, rugby rules, and the demand for top rugby betting tips is strong.

Rugby’s popularity continues to grow outside of its current stronghold, with countries as diverse as Argentina, Japan and Italy developing teams that are capable of upsetting the established order.

Our free rugby predictions – and our betting tips in general – are the result of tireless and unpaid work from the bettingexpert community. We then share them with the sports betting community – free of charge

A lot of other betting sites – particularly those based in the US – will either have a subscription-only system where the user has to pay a substantial figure in advance in order to access their tips, or pay a fee per individual “pick.” However, unlike bettingexpert, these sites rarely provide any evidence of a system and how it works, nor proof of the consistent success and profitability of their tips. Long term use of these type of sites will invariably lead to heavy financial losses.

At bettingexpert we record all of the performances of each of our tipsters, providing proof of the profitability and consistency of the predictions made by our top tipsters. We then share this information with the public.

Bet On Rugby

If you are intending to bet on rugby today or in the near future, you will be pleased to know that because of its global popularity and bursting fixture calendar, there will most likely be several matches being played on the very day you decide to bet on rugby. Whether it’s rugby league or rugby union, seven-a-side, a team event or an international competition, a men’s or women’s match, there will most likely be some rugby action taking place the first time you choose to bet on rugby.
There is no real surprise as to rugby’s global popularity – few sports can match it in terms of the amount of bone-crunching thrills and excitement it delivers as well as a blend of speed, power and skill that compares favourably with other violent teams sports such as American football, ice hockey, Aussie Rules and lacrosse. In fact, rugby is basically American football minus all of the body armour and helmets!

Rugby competitions include the UK’s Premiership (rugby union) and Super League (rugby league), the European Rugby Champions Cup, formerly the Heineken Cup, and very much the Champions League of rugby. Each year the Six Nations Championship pits the international teams of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France and Italy against each other over a series of weekends in front of huge crowds in sold out stadiums across Europe.

Employ A Betting Strategy

Whenever you choose to partake in sports betting seriously, it is essential to employ a betting strategy. The bettingexpert Academy is the No.1 resource when it comes to scientific sports betting, and provides an insight which is invaluable for every serious sports bettor. Our Rugby betting guide will also provide you with all the information you need to vastly improve your Rugby betting

Here are just some examples of advice that can be found using our Rugby betting guide:

  • Only Bet When There’s Value – It’s common-sense, yet many forget the most basic rule in sports betting: Don’t waste money on bets that aren’t likely to come off, or don’t earn you anything if they do.
  • Specialise – Rugby offers a multitude of betting markets. Find out what market you enjoy the most and have the most success with, and focus your rugby betting attention on it.
  • Have Several Bookmaker Accounts – This is just common sense; not all bookies will offer the best odds for your bet, having several accounts ensures you get the most bang for your buck.
  • Keep A Record – Maintaining a record of your prior wagers enables you to see where you might have gone wrong, and also allows you to get a clear picture of what markets you excel at.

More specific, rugby related advice includes:

Do Your Preseason Research

The more you know about rugby, the luckier you will become in your rugby betting. Preseason, find out which teams have strengthened their squads and which have lost key players.

Check Head-to-Head Matchups

Check the Head-to-Head between the two teams in a game. By assessing how their previous six results went you can deduce the outcome of their next encounter.

Look Out For The Upset

In a typical rugby season even the best teams will lose games they were expected to win. Learn to spot the reason why an upset might occur.
