We've seen some great upsets, from the likes of Japan and Uruguay and some poor performances from Russia and the USA.
However, all the remaining sides cannot be ignored as we go in to the quarter finals.
That's why today I want to give you my predictions for the upcoming knockout encounters this weekend!

A couple of people have been emailing and texting me non-stop about the odds during the rugby world cup.
Here's one saying:
“They're terrible! - how do you expect to make any money from these odds?”
And he has a good point.
Just look at these two games:
France vs USA and New Zealand vs Canada
From the odds you can see that a bet on France to beat the U... ››› more

Now is the time to get excited about the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
It's been four years since the world last clashed on the rugby field and with the introduction of new countries taking part, this year's Rugby World Cup could be a nail-biter.
That's why today I want to break down each team to its very core, identify their squads while answering one important question…

With the Rugby World Cup happening later this year, the Super Rugby tournament is a gold mine of information.
Not only will we be able to profit each week from the games but it will also give us key insight into which teams from which countries have the strongest players.
But first, we need to analyse the game format and the 1st round of fixtures.

The bookies love those punters who back favourites but they absolutely loathe the winning each way punters.
But in sports betting there are many ways to profit from a single rugby game.
From number of tries, number of cards, number of points to who will score the first try.
The most popular alternative market to bet on in rugby is the handicap market.
A simple but powerful way to c... ››› more
I've just finished having lunch with one of my contacts at Super Sport.
A real rugby nut head - who always seems to lead the conversation towards the weekend's rugby games.
So much so, we hardly talk about any other sport.
But its this kind of passion and insight that helps me improve my rugby betting.
Out of this discussion, I learnt three things I need to pay more attention to wh... ››› more

Maths is your best friend when it comes to sports betting, but I am not trying to scare you with trigonometry or the Analytic Continuation of the Factorial.
I have no idea what those are and to be honest if it doesn't put money in my bank account, I don't care.
However, there are some mathematical equations worth knowing about, and some that are just plain crucial to the long-term success of... ››› more
I love my Rugby…
I truly do.
However, in saying that, I cannot seem to find any value in betting on the final outcome of the game.
This doesn't mean I have given up on betting on one of my favourite sports, it just means I have to look elsewhere to find value.
In doing so I have found just that.
Let me explain…
Betting on Rugby - and finding value

I'm not a big rugby fan. However, when it comes to the World Cup. I watch every South African game. I'm a patriotic South African. I feel that it's important to support our sports teams when we're playing in such important international games.
I get really worked up when the team wins and fails. I end up shouting, jumping and clutching the couch pillows out frustration and anxiety. And I know I... ››› more
