Australians are supporting the national team with their wallets as the Wallabies prepare to face a highly fancied New Zealand outfit in Sunday’s Rugby World Cup Semi Final.
While still the outsiders, the Wallabies have firmed from $3.45 into $3.05 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, while the All Blacks have eased from $1.30 out to $1.40.
“Certainly the bigger bets have been on New Zealand, but in terms of the volume of bets placed it’s currently running four bets on the Wallabies to one on the All Blacks,” sportsbet.com.au’s Haydn Lane said.
The fight for the other spot in the final is expected to be a close affair with Wales ($1.73) slight favourites over France ($2.09), with no price fluctuations since markets opened last Sunday.
The All Blacks are priced at just $1.53 to win the tournament on their home soil, ahead of the Wallabies at $5.00, Wales at $6.00 and France at $8.00.
