Autumn Internationals 2021

England vs South Africa Betting Tips

England came up trumps against Australia last weekend in the rugby Autumn Internationals and hoping to build upon that positive.

And it’s reigning World Champions South Africa that England face today, who got the better of England in the final of the 2019 World Cup, so it’s all about revenge…as well as adding to the list of Autumn wins.

South Africa’s victories over Wales and Scotland have both come courtesy of second-half showings, but the depth of the visitors shone through to see them take the spoils, and that could be the case again today.

However, it must be said that this weekend’s clash doesn’t quite have as much riding on it as the last time the two nations met in the World Cup final when South Africa ran out 32-12 winners at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama in November 2019 as England failed to score a single try.

Betting Odds 

England go into today’s clash on a four-match winning streak, beating the USA, Canada, Tonga and Australia, with each of those victories coming on home soil at Twickenham.

Today, England can be backed at 6/5 to extend their winning run.

Meanwhile, South Africa have won both of their games during the Autumn Nations campaign, overcoming Wales and Scotland, and they can be backed at 4/5 while the draw is available at 22/1.

That being said, there’s often little to pick between England and South Africa and today’s meeting is likely to be another tight affair.

Scotland vs Japan 

Scotland and Japan have met on eight previous occasions. Scotland have won seven of those matches but Japan beat them 28-21 at the 2019 Rugby World Cup the last time they met; today is all about revenge and Scotland should have enough to beat their guests on home soil.
Scotland have had a great year so far and were very impressive during the 2021 Six Nations and came into the Autumn internationals full of confidence, which showed as the began with a 60-14 thrashing of Tonga before beating Australia 15-13 in a much tight encounter.
And although last week it didn’t go according to plan as the world champion Springboks beat the Scots 30-15 at Murrayfield, today’s clash against Japan should be very different and most likely, the Brave Blossoms will move the ball a lot quicker with less reliance of physical prowess.
Betting Odds 

Japan’s lack of rugby since the World Cup is reflected in the prices, with Scotland heavy odds-on favourites.

They are 1/10 with William Hill, 1/14 with BetFred and 1/25 with Mansion Bet .

Meanwhile, Japan are available at 15/2 with William Hill and 9/1 with 888. Most bookies agree a 33/1 for the draw.
