Rugby tips from Betway Insider

The Betway Insider provides rugby tips covering the biggest events throughout the year.

Our rugby betting tips encompass the Six Nations, Rugby World Cup and Great Britain and Ireland Lions tours.

All rugby tips produced by the Betway Insider are free.

Who are the Betway Insider tipsters?

Our tipsters each have several years’ experience in the betting industry, and have a strong track record of producing profit.

When are rugby tips published?

The Betway Insider produce rugby betting tips on a competition-by-competition basis.

Ahead of a major tournament, there will be outright tips published at least one day in advance of the first match.

There will also be match-specific tips posted on the Betway Insider for the biggest games, again, at least one day in advance throughout the tournament.

What types of rugby tips do Betway provide?

Our rugby betting experts at Betway Insider produce several different types of rugby tips throughout the calendar year.

Ahead of a major tournament, our experts will put together a number of outright tips for that competition.

Firstly, they will pick a winner – the team they believe has the best chance of winning that tournament.

If they are tipping a tournament with multiple teams, such as the Rugby World Cup, they may tip certain teams to reach a particular stage of the competition, such as the semis or the final.  

They may also pick a forecast of teams to qualify from their pools in the Rugby World Cup. This means that our tipster will pick which teams they expect to finish first and second in their respective pools.

If they are tipping the Six Nations, they may also pick a team to win the Grand Slam, meaning a side to win all five of their matches in the series.

Along with this, they will also choose a straight forecast. This means the sides they expect to finish first and second in the table, in the order that they expect them to finish.

For a Lions tour, where there are a pre-determined number of games and no knock-out tournament, our tipster will pick the team they expect to win the series.

If you are looking for tips for a specific match, we provide a #BetYourWay builder for every Six Nations and Lions match and the biggest Rugby World Cup matches, as well as those that include England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Our tipsters will also delve into the player markets to pick out a top try scorer and top points scorer for the tournaments.

On top of that, our experts will also ask our traders to price up various special bets that are not ordinarily available to back ahead of major tournaments or series.

These could include, but are not limited to, tipping any match in a certain tournament to finish as a draw or any Tier 2 nation to qualify for the knockout stages of the Rugby World Cup.

How do you bet on rugby?

If you are unsure of how betting odds work, read our handy guide which provides you with all the information you need to start betting.

When you’re ready to place a bet, your first option is to head to the Betway Insider website to read through our experts’ tips. Each article will have a link to the sportsbook, where you can then place your bet.

Otherwise you can head straight to the Betway sportsbook to place your bet.

The most popular market on the sportsbook for rugby betting is the match winner market, where you place a bet on the result of the match.

If you are betting on a specific match, this market will display as win/draw/win.

Another popular market is try scorer, where you can place a bet on which players you believe will score a try in that match.

Betway also offer markets for you to bet on handicap victories, winning margins, first team to score, last team to score, whether the first try will be converted, which team will be the first to reach 10 points, and many more.

Another function offered by Betway is in-play betting, which allows you to place wagers while the match is ongoing.
