Here are five bets Guy Giles thinks you should consider for Japan v South Africa, which kicks off at 11:15 on Sunday.

Japan (+14)

One thing we learned from the pool stages is to not bet against Japan, but they face a seriously tough test against South Africa on Sunday.

This bet covers all bases, as if the Springboks prove a step too far then Japan should at least have enough to keep it within this margin.

First team to score: South Africa

Japan made slow starts against Russia, Ireland and Scotland, going behind in all three matches.

South Africa, meanwhile, took the lead within 10 minutes in all four of their pool games.

Total tries: Over 5.5 

This World Cup has seen more tries at this stage than the last two tournaments, with 249 scored at an average of nearly seven per match.

Japan scored 13 in their four matches and South Africa 27 across their four, so this looks a safe bet on Sunday.

First tryscorer: Cheslin Kolbe

Kolbe has scored two tries so far in Japan, including the opener in the Springboks’ win over Italy, to take his tally to seven tries in eight international starts.

With Betway’s first tryscorer offer you can double your winnings if your pick scores again in the same match, with wingers accounting for four of the eight pay-outs so far.

Anytime tryscorer: Kotaro Matsushima

The Japanese winger has lit up his home World Cup, sitting joint-top of the try-scoring table with five.

Matsushima has 22 tries in 34 international starts, including Japan’s only try when these teams met in a warm-up match before the tournament.
