So, finally, I’m about to tell you where to watch online live broadcasts of the 2019 Rugby World Cup matches. Right now, you can find literally everything on the Internet. Live broadcasts of sporting events are no exception. But one question arises – will these broadcasts be of high quality? You may find such sites, but in this case, this service will cost money.

The 2019 World Rugby World Cup is the first-ever Rugby World Cup to be held in Asia. The tournament will be attended by 20 teams, of which eight teams have passed qualifying rounds, and the rest were automatically at the tournament according to the results of the previous KM. Before the start of the tournament, Legalbet analyzed the lines of bookmakers’ offices and assessment of the participants’ chances. We are telling you about the coefficients, as well as the usage statistics of the teams, which should be kept in mind when choosing a bet for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Top Teams

New Zealand

The official website of the World Rugby Cup before the start of the tournament provided the current rating of the teams, in the first three of which – the national team of Ireland, which shifted to the second line of the New Zealanders and closes the trio of England. The Russian national team takes the 20th place in this list.

Despite the fact that New Zealand lost first place in the rating to the Irish, it is All Blacks who are the main favorites of the World Cup.

The national team of New Zealand: will All Blacks help terrifying dancing on the field?

For most viewers, the first association with the New Zealand national team is the ritual haka dance, which is performed by the national teams of the island state. Will the New Zealand battle dances work this time? One of the key questions for the upcoming tournament is whether this Rugby World Cup will culminate in the fourth trophy for Hansen’s team.

The New Zealanders have won the last two World World Cups, and the team has three titles in total – more than anyone else.


At the beginning of August, New Zealand lost the match to Australia, which opened two problems at once. The first was a disciplinary one (Barrett’s red card), the second was that the New Zealanders were outnumbered and lost 26-47. But a week later, the island team took confident revenge, defeating the Australians – 36:0. The next control match on September 7, All Blacks easily beat Tonga 92-7.

South Africa

The next match the team will play at the World Cup against one of the main competitors – South Africa.

Injuries and debauches: problems in the English camp
In preparation for the World Cup in Japan, England played four matches in August and September. “The Red-Whites exchanged victories with Wales, confidently defeated the current leaders of the world ranking – the Irish (57:15) and crushed Italy (37:0) in vain.

Winger Anthony Watson, who missed 13 months after the Achilles tendon injury, returned to the expanded team.
Brad Shields is also recovering from the injury, and Mike Brown and Ben Theo are not on the final list at all due to disciplinary violations. Nevertheless, Lancaster’s wards take the second or third place in the ranking of bookmakers.

Will South Africa’s national team consolidate its success in the World Cup?

South Africa is considered to be the second and third contender for the trophy. Springbox captain Siya Kolisi claimed that the team’s victory in the World Cup(the tournament of the four top national teams of the Southern Hemisphere) did not relax the players, but, on the contrary, gave them motivation to progress. And the good competitive practice before the 2019 World Cup in Japan gave them an opportunity to correct some of their game moments.

Motivation is great, but there are some line-up problems that make the picture a little darkened. Due to Warren Whitley’s prolonged rehabilitation after a knee injury, he did not make it to the tournament, which significantly weakened the team.

Argentina & Ireland

After winning the World Cup, the African national team played two friendly games, dealing with Argentina (24:18) and Japan (41:7).

Ireland is the leader of the rating, but not an obvious favorite
The Irish national team is approaching the World Cup as a world leader. Most bookmakers rate the odds of “guys in green” slightly lower than in South Africa. In preparation for the tournament, the Irish played four matches: one loss and three wins.

Interesting fact: the legendary Italian forward Martin Castrogiovanni in an interview rated the Irish as the unconditional favorite of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. We will soon find out who did a more detailed analysis – Martin or the bookmakers.

The mood and fears of the “red dragon”

Closes the top five favorites of KM to the Welsh national team. “Dragons” go to the World Cup in Japan in bad shape – a number of players of the national team have not recovered from injuries. Gareth Enscomb does not get to the tournament due to knee ligament injury, which will take several months to recover from. Taulupe Faletau hurt his hand for the third time and was also removed from the list of players. The team has been playing without him for more than a year now, and it is still unknown whether his return would have been a strengthening before the upcoming tournament.

Before the World Cup Welsh played two friendly games with the British and Irish. The team suffered three defeats and one victory in a match with England (13:6).

The first obstacle to the “dragons” in the World Cup in Japan will be the national team of Georgia – not the strongest opponent, but the players of the Welsh national team will have to think about the balance between the pressure on the knowingly weaker opponent and the preservation of yet untraumatized players.

Japan -Ghostly Chances of the Home Team

The hostess of the World Cup- the Japanese national team – is located on the border between the first and second ten teams. To win the Japanese in the tournament BC Winline gives a coefficient of 175.00. On the one hand, Japan’s national team is unevenly ranked among the top five mastodonts. On the other hand, the Japanese have recently won the Cup of Pacific Nations trophy, finally interrupting a protracted series of victories of Fijians. We add to this the atmosphere of home stadiums and the fact that the Japanese Rugby Union promised to double the funding of the teams by 2021, and as a result, we get a good motivation to jump above the head.

The first match at the World Cup Japan will play against Russia. In this game, the hosts of the tournament are considered to be unconditional favorites. Most of the offices offer a 1.01 ratio for the Japanese to win. Read about Japan vs Russia live streaming Guide.

Russian national team at the Rugby World Cup

This is the second time the Russians have made it to the most prestigious rugby tournament. This event was “helped” by the violations committed by the teams of Romania and Spain, which improperly formalized naturalized players and were disqualified.

The team is listed among the World Cup outsiders along with the teams of the USA, Uruguay and Namibia. At the group stage, the Russians will have to play with the teams of Scotland, Ireland, Japan and Samoa. National team captain Vasily Artemiev outlined the team’s goal at the 2019 FIFA World Cup:

Now we are not debutants but never won the tournament, although we were eight years ago close to it. The main goal is to win one victory.
Judging by the bookmakers’ quotes, the weakest opponent of the Russians in the group is the Samoan team. For its victory in the tournament, BC Winline offers a coefficient of 650.00.

Who will be the best scorer and not only: Bets on Players

The main contender for the title of the best striker of the World Cup – 2019 bookmakers consider 27-year-old captain of the English national team Owen Farrell. In friendly matches, the midfielder still justifies the predictions. Farrell became the most productive player in the match with Italy, scoring three free-kicks and having four realizations. In a meeting with Ireland on the account of this player were one successful penalty and six implementations.

The second contender for an individual award is considered to be a 25-year-old South African player Handr Pollard. In the control match with the Japanese on the account of Pollard two successful implementation and penalty.

But the real benefit of Pollard fell on the victorious for the Springboks World Cup. In a meeting with New Zealand, the player scored three free throws and made a last-minute implementation, which helped to level the score. In the last match of the tournament against Argentina, Pollard made two attempts, made three realizations and scored four free throws.

Also, bookmakers separately accept bets on the player who made the most attempts at the World Cup. In this category, the main favorite is 22-year-old New Zealander Rijeko Ioane. In friendly matches, Ioana has no successful attempts, only four realizations in the game with Tonga (92:7). At the Championchipship, Ioana tried in a match with Australia.

Possible KM Rugby Finalists: Expectations of bookmakers

New Zealand and South Africa are considered to be the most likely finalists. “All Blacks are the main favorites of the tournament, the winners of the last two World Cups, and their appearance in the next final will not come as a surprise. South Africans are approaching the tournament as winners of the prestigious Championchip, so they are also expected in the decisive match.

New Zealand and South Africa are in the same group and will start the World Cup in person. On September 21, fans will probably see a rehearsal of the World Cup final. The New Zealand national team with the coefficient of 1.35 from BC “Leon” is considered to be the obvious favorite in this game.

Where can I bet on the Rugby World Cup?

Most Russian bookmakers can bet on the Rugby World Cup matches. The richest choice of long-term bets is offered by BC Winline, Leon and 1xStavka. If Winline specializes in bets on team results, then Leon and 1xStava have lines and individual achievements of national team players.
