Here are Tom Clee's rugby betting tips for this weekend...
ENGLAND v NEW ZEALAND (15:00)
New Zealand to win by 1-12 points
England’s gritty win over South Africa did not show that they are capable of beating the All Blacks, but it did suggest they can at least stay close to them.
All five of their losses this year have been by 1-12 points, as have their last four defeats against New Zealand at Twickenham.
Rieko Ioane to score two or more tries
Ioane’s run of 13 tries in his last nine Tests means that he is now averaging more than a try per game for his country.
He’s scored two or more just as often as he’s scored one, so if you think he’s going to touch down at all, you may as well back him to do so twice.
Jonny May to score a try
May has seven tries in nine Tests this year, never going more than one without scoring.
New Zealand conceded six tries to wingers during the Rugby Championship, so he looks the player most likely to hurt them.
WALES v AUSTRALIA (17:20)
Australia to win by 1-10 points
Wales have lost their last 13 meetings with Australia, and didn’t show much against Scotland last weekend to suggest that run is about to come to an end.
All but two of those defeats were by nine points or fewer, so there’s good value in backing history to repeat itself.
Under 39.5 total points
Australia have only scored more than 23 points once in their last seven matches.
Presuming they win the game, then the bar for this should be set fairly low.
Israel Folau to score a try
Folau has scored 15 tries in 18 Tests since the start of last year.
He also has a decent record against Wales, with three in four appearances against them.
IRELAND v ARGENTINA (18:30)
Ireland to win by 11-20
Argentina finished bottom of the Rugby Championship table, and won’t find things any easier against the Grand Slam champions.
Six of their last eight defeats have been by 11-20 points, which seems a fair benchmark.
Jacob Stockdale to score
Stockdale is currently on the longest barren run of his international career, having gone three games without a try.
He still has 11 in 12 Tests, though, and bagged a brace against Argentina at the Aviva last year – so don’t expect that to continue much longer.
Nicolas Sanchez to score
Sanchez was prolific in the Rugby Championship, scoring four tries in six games.
That should mean he backs himself to finish the job when receiving the ball within the vicinity of the Irish try line on Saturday.
