|Best Bet||Handicap – Ireland +12pts at 1/1 with Betfair Sportsbook|
The All Blacks go into this quarter final match with Ireland as red hot 1/5 (1.20) favourites to beat Ireland in Chōfu, Tokyo on Saturday evening. The Kiwis won the World Cup in 2015 and 2011.
Ireland beat Scotland 27-3 in their opening game of Pool A and that proved crucial to their qualification after losing 19-12 to hosts Japan.
Shifted to full-back to accommodate Richie Mo’unga at No. 10, Beauden Barrett remains integral to the All Blacks’ hopes in both attack and defence. If Ireland are to end the reign of the two-time defending champions, it’s going to require something special from Johnny Sexton alongside his half-back partner, Conor Murray.
Betting Tip: The All Blacks are the best team around but we think Ireland can make this interesting. Our tip is for Ireland to keep it close and back them on the Handicap with +12pts at 1/1 (2.00) at Betfair Sportsbook.
