These betting types apply to both Rugby Union and Rugby League and also the sevens rugby. We discuss the difference between the two codes in this article: Major Difference between Rugby Union and Rugby League.

With rugby, you can bet on both the tournament and match results.

Handicap Bet

As we have covered before handicap betting market gives an advantage to a perceived weak team and vice versa to a perceived stronger team.

For a bet placed on England to be fruitful, England needs to lose by points not more than 10.

Match Result

This is straightforward, you as a bettor will have to choose the right end result of a match between the teams.

You either choose to back a team to win, draw or lose (1x2) in the match.

For example, South Africa winning against Japan during the international Rugby World cup in 2016.
