Here are five bets Guy Giles thinks you should consider for Ireland v Samoa, which kicks off at 11:45 on Saturday. 

Ireland (-28) 

A bonus point win could secure Ireland top spot in Pool A, avoiding a quarter-final clash against New Zealand.

They beat Scotland by 24 points and Russia by 35, and a strong starting XV should have enough to overcome this handicap.

Winning margin: Ireland 31-40 

Samoa lost by 34 points to Scotland, who suffered a heavy defeat to Ireland at the start of the tournament.

Ireland beat Samoa by 31 points in the most recent meeting between these sides.

Highest scoring half: 1st 

More points were scored in the first half in five of the six games played by these two teams at the World Cup so far.

Ireland tend to start strong, with eight first-half tries in the tournament.

Anytime tryscorer: Jordan Larmour 

Larmour returns at full-back for Ireland on Saturday after missing their win over Russia.

The 22-year-old has five tries in seven international starts.

Anytime tryscorer: Rory Best 

Hookers have scored 20 tries so far in this World Cup, including Best’s effort against Scotland.

Ireland will use their dominant lineout and maul against Samoa and that will give him a few opportunities to score his second try of the tournament.
