Online Rugby Betting in Australia

Rugby is one of the best-loved sports in Australia, both to play and to watch. It follows suit that Rugby betting is one of the most popular punting options. Interestingly, betting on Rugby has only recently found real favour in Australia, but wagering is now quite heated and can become very exciting. Online wagers are often the best option, being more convenient and cost-effective, and offering better rugby betting odds and options, than land-based bookmakers are able to. We highly recommend placing some online rugby bets, but have a read through our guidelines here first.

In Australia there two forms of Rugby which are played professionally and are associated with rugby bets. The rules for each are different, and you might find that you feel more comfortable with one over the other. We recommend familiarising yourself with both before you decide.

The first category is the Rugby Union. The games are slightly slower and feature possession contests. These are exciting, but they cut the actual playing time to thirty-five minutes only. The second category is the Rugby League, where the games move a little more quickly and game play takes up about fifty minutes of the overall eighty minutes that have the ball actually in play.

For League and Union games, you can choose from a range of rugby bets options that run the gamut from simple to exotic. These exotic wagers run quite consistently for the Rugby League, while Rugby union betting on Union games has three main focuses.

Firstly, the Test Tournament brings the national teams of the word’s best Rugby nations together, and is the most popular Rugby tourney on earth. It kicks of the season and is the basis of many other rugby bets throughout the year. Tournament betting options can be very lucrative and include single match bets with and without point spreads and predicting the overall tournament winners, so there is something for everyone.

The other two important areas for Union betting are Club and Sevens Rugby matches. These are more domestic, so the atmosphere and experience on the Australian betting sites in quite different from Test Tournament punts. You can still choose the Win/Loss bet, but many players also choose to back specific players that they have come to know. Getting familiar with a team and its players can thus be financially rewarding, and also really immerses you in the proceedings.

Types of Rugby Bets Online

Whether enjoying your rugby betting on League or Union matches, you need to choose the team or players that you want to put money on with care. It is advisable to do as much research as possible, including checking sports reporters’ opinions, the ladder, draw and odds on the game and the team or player statistics, and then balance this with your intuition. Listen to your instincts, but try not to make rugby bets that are overly emotional. The team that you wish would win is not always the team with the best chance of winning.
