Rules and features of rugby betting

To bet on rugby, you need to thoroughly know the rules of this sport discipline. For rugby-15 and rugby-7 they are almost the same. The number at the end of the name indicates how many players participate in the match from each side. Obviously, in rugby-15, the main emphasis is on power wrestling, because. there is not much room left for tactical action. Therefore, for successful bets on rugby 15, it is necessary to evaluate the physical form of athletes. But in rugby 7, on the contrary, tactics and teamwork play a big role, the ability to accurately give passes, punch shots.

A rugby match lasts in most cases 80 minutes and is divided into two halves of 40 minutes each. If the winner (draw) is not revealed during the regular time, then extra time is assigned – two halves of 10 minutes each. To win, you need to score more points than the opposing team. Points are awarded for various actions:

1) 5 points for a try when a player passes with the ball into the green zone and touches the ground with it.
2) 5 points for a penalty try. Points are awarded if the attempt failed due to violations of the opposing team.
3) 3 points for a free kick taken from the place where the infringement was called.
4) 3 points for a drop goal – during the game you can throw the ball to the ground and from there make a shot at the goal. Punching from the hand is prohibited.

Types of rugby betting online

Most betting on rugby is no different from betting on other team sports. So, you can bet on who will win the match. In rugby, draws are extremely rare, so this result may even be absent in the bookmaker’s line.

Betting on a win with a handicap is very popular. Often in rugby matches there are teams of different classes, so the bet on the clear victory of the favorite will not bring sufficient winnings to the better. He can bet with a negative handicap on the favorite, or with a positive handicap on the outsider, thereby increasing the odds.

Also, bookmakers accept bets on the total points for the entire match. In addition, you can bet on the total in the first or second half and on the individual total of one team in the entire game, or in half.

Try betting is a type of betting exclusive to rugby. You can make long-term bets – for the team to reach the playoffs, enter the top three winners and win the champion title. Bets are accepted on winning a half/match, on even/odd goals and many others.


Analysis of rugby betting

In order for rugby betting to be profitable, you need to carefully analyze matches and teams. It is important to evaluate how well the players on the same team play. It’s one thing when the whole team plays in one club, and quite another when the team is formed from players from different clubs and they meet only a few times a year. You should also find out if key players have had difficult meetings recently. Due to the tight schedule, players do not always have time to recover.

In the analysis of the upcoming match, the statistics of past meetings will be of great help. There are uncomfortable teams, so even the leader of the season can lose to an uncomfortable opponent from the last lines of the standings. Do not forget to take into account the weather conditions in which the meeting will be held, especially if you bet on totals and odds. Under adverse weather conditions, the performance is sharply reduced. The advantage goes to the team that focuses on the power struggle, and not on tactical actions.
