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.
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
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.
