SUPER RUGBY BET TYPES
We are well and truly living in the digital age where tasks can be completed with the click of a button. One of those is the emergence of online betting. With an online account, you can place bets on your favourite Super Rugby matches. We will explain the most popular bet types for Super Rugby.
HEAD TO HEAD
As simple as it gets in the sports betting world. Place a bet on the team that you think will win a match. If they do, your bet is successful.
Common terms for head to head betting are favourite and underdog, where the latter is the team given the least likely chance of winning; their odds will be higher than the favourite’s odds.
Line betting or handicap betting is where bookmakers give the underdog a head start by a certain amount of points. The amount they are given depends on the head to head odds between the teams. For example, the Crusaders continue to dominate the Super Rugby competition and when they play a team like the Waratahs, bookmakers may set the line as follows:
• Crusaders -18.5
• Waratahs +18.5
There are only two possible outcomes.
The Crusaders win by 19 or more points which means the Crusaders -18.5 handicap bet wins or the Crusaders win by 1-18 points or the Waratahs win by any margin and the Waratahs +18.5 handicap bet is the winner.
For Super Rugby matches, bookmakers will break the result into two possible margins for both teams. Each team has a 1-12 option and a 13+ result. Dominant favourites will be expected to win by 13+ and their odds for this option will be much lower than 1-12.
Predicting the first try scorer in Super Rugby matches is not easy but successfully predicting the correct player is rewarding with good odds on offer for your favourite players. Most bookmakers also offer betting on the last try scorer in a match too.
