Australia v England Rugby Union Betting Tips 09/07/2022
Australia and England face off in the second test of their three-match series on Saturday, so we have our free Australia v England Rugby Union Betting Tips. The Wallabies hold a 1-0 advantage over England heading into the second match after a slender victory in the first match in Perth. England will be fully aware that a defeat will end any hopes of winning the test, but they will have to overcome some poor recent form to be in with a chance. This match kicks off at 11a.m. at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane. It will be shown live on Sky Sports.
Team News and Form
Australia edged past England with a 30-28 victory in a hard-fought first test. The Wallabies trailed 6-3 before Darcy Swain was sent off in the first half. But Australia fought back in the second period and they held off a late England charge to secure the win. It was a much-needed victory for the Wallabies as they bounced back from their three-match losing streak in the November internationals. For England, it capped a fourth consecutive loss following a 52-21 loss against the Barbarians and a poor Six Nations campaign.
Regarding the team news, Australia lock Darcy Swain is suspended after his dismissal last time out. Full-back Tom Banks and prop Allan Alaalatoa are also ruled out of the second test due to injury. England winger Jonny May is out of the second test (illness) and Tom Curry is out of the next two tests with a concussion.
Matchwinner Betting Odds
Looking at the matchwinner odds for Australia vs England, the bookmakers currently favour the hosts to win and seal the test. However, England cannot be ruled out completely. Eddie Jones’s side has a solid recent record against the Wallabies, winning four of their last five matches in Australia. Despite this, England are still considered outsiders to win, with SBK offering 19/12 odds. Away form has been an issue for Jones’ side, and they have lost five of their last six on the road. Their only win in this run was a routine 33-0 win in Italy. Australia is also strong at home, winning their last four Down Under, and we are backing a Wallabies win to seal the test in Brisbane. At 8/11, SpreadEx will provide the best value for a home victory.
Winning Margin Bets
Judging by the first test, a low winning margin for Australia could take place against England. The first match was decided by a two-point margin and Betfair offer decent odds for another tight scoreline. They are providing 11/2 odds for an Australia win by 1-5 points. However, given England’s recent defensive woes, the Wallabies could notch a bigger win in Brisbane on Saturday. Jones’s side has conceded 25 or more points in their last four matches, and they have lost by 12 or more points during this run. As a result, we are backing an Australia win by 11-15 points, with 888Sport offering 8/1 odds.
Highest Scoring Half Bet Tip
There is also decent value to be found in the highest-scoring half between England and Australia. The first test was more cagey in the first period, with a 6-6 scoreline in the first half. However, this broke Australia’s recent trend of starting quickly. In their previous two, the Wallabies saw higher scoring first halves compared to the second. In addition, England has struggled to keep the scores down in the first half recently. They have conceded double figures before half-time in three of their last four matches. As a result, we are tipping a higher scoring first half, with William Hill providing 1/1 odds.
