new-zealand-south-africa-prediction new-zealand-south-africa-prediction

The 2023 Rugby World Cup final is upon us, and it should be a cracking match as New Zealand are going to be taking on South Africa at the Stade de France. The match will kick off at 20:00 GMT on the 28th of October, so make sure that your Saturday evening is completely free as you definitely do not want to miss any of the action. The team that wins will pick up the Webb Ellis Trophy for an unprecedented fourth time.

The man with the honour of refereeing this match is England's Wayne Barnes, while his compatriots Matthew Carley and Karl Dickson will be running the lines. The officiating team is completed by England's Tom Foley as Television Match Official.

These two countries have met a total of 105 times on the rugby field, and the All Blacks lead the way with 62 victories to South Africa's 39 - there has been a total of four draws. Will South Africa pick up a somewhat rare win against New Zealand, or will the All Blacks continue their domination in this fixture? Read on, and you can find out how I think this big match will play out.

💯 New Zealand v South Africa Betting Odds Rugby World Cup

Us rugby bettors across the British Isle are not lacking in options when it comes to the different rugby markets that we can opt to put our money on. From all of the entertaining markets that are on offer, there are three that I like to try my luck on regularly, and these are the 3-way handicap, match winner, and Asian handicap.

Below you can find some of the recent betting odds that my top British bookmakers are offering for this New Zealand v South Africa game. If you want to find out as much as you can about any of these bookmakers in this betting guide before you fully commit to them by depositing money, then check out our in-depth bookmaker reviews.

🥇 New Zealand v South Africa Match Winner Odds

The bookmakers have got New Zealand as the slight favourites to win this final, and this really will not come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about rugby. New Zealand did lose their opening match of the tournament to France, but they just brushed themselves down and disposed of everyone else that crossed their path.

If you want to place a match winner bet on this game, then check out the table below as I have provided you with the odds that some top bookies are offering for this New Zealand vs South Africa match:

Team
New Zealand1.721.721.831.721.72
Tie17.9017.9021.0017.0021.00
South Africa2.072.072.101.902.25

➕ New Zealand v South Africa Handicap 3-Way Odds

You might think that New Zealand will go on to win the final, but you might not be too attracted to the odds that are on offer. If you want to bet on the All Blacks to win but want some higher odds, then you can think about giving them a 3-way handicap ahead of kick-off. To those who are new to rugby betting, a 3-way handicap allows you to give a points advantage or disadvantage to a team.

Below you can find the latest 3-way handicap odds that are being offered for New Zealand v South Africa:

Team
New Zealand (0-1)--1.91-1.83
New Zealand (0-2)1.891.89--
Draw (0-1)--17.00-17.00
Draw (0-2)17.4017.40--
South Africa (0-1)--1.91-2.10
South Africa (0-2)1.811.81--

🏮 New Zealand v South Africa Asian Handicap Odds

If you were to decide to give the All Blacks a 2-point deficit to improve their odds slightly, and they go on to win by exactly 2 points, they will be World Champions, but you will not win any money. This is because your bookmaker will classify the result as a theoretical draw.

If you want to get rid of the chances of your bet being ruined by a theoretical draw, then you can consider placing an Asian handicap bet. In the following table, you can see the Asian handicap odds that my top bookies are offering for this game:

Team
New Zealand (-1.5)1.811.81-1.76-
New Zealand (-2.5)----1.90
South Africa (+1.5)1.811.81-1.75-
South Africa (+2.5)----1.90

The odds were up to date at the time of writing. For any changes, see bookmakers' sites.

🔍 New Zealand v South Africa Prediction

The All Blacks will go into this final very confident of being able to win a fourth World Cup title due to their very good head-to-head record against the Springboks. They will know that they will be in for a tough game, but they also have history telling them that they know how to overcome South Africa. They did lose by a record score to South Africa in a warm-up match before the World Cup, but I do not think that will have an impact on the outcome.

The Springboks have had a really tough quarter-final against France and then England pushed them closer than anyone predicted they would. There is no doubt that these two wins would have taken a lot out of South Africa, and they will have to draw on their reserves for one last push for glory. New Zealand, on the other hand, had a walk in the park against Argentina in the semi-finals, so they will be fresher heading into this match. A rested New Zealand is not a team that anyone will relish facing.

With the way that New Zealand have been purring in the latter stages of this competition and the fact that they had a much easier semi-final, my money is on New Zealand to win and claim their 4th title. How much will they win by? Well, it will be quite close, but I am going to say New Zealand by 7 points.

✔️ New Zealand v South Africa RWC Betting Tips

Let me now give you some Rugby World Cup betting tips for this New Zealand vs South Africa match. Before I do, I just want to stress the importance of responsible gambling. Set up a budget with money you know you can afford to lose and do not stray from it. Additionally, never chase losses as they will usually lead you down a sticky financial path.

1️⃣ Match Winner: New Zealand to Win

I believe that New Zealand will win this final and claim eternal glory, and the odds that are on offer are not too short when you take into consideration how good a team the All Blacks are. If you want to place a bet on them to win, then William Hill are currently offering odds of 1.83.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: New Zealand to Win (-2)

While the odds for an All Blacks win are not too short, I know that there will be some rugby bettors who will want to make them slightly longer. As I reckon that New Zealand will win the match by around 7 points, I think it is worth giving them a slight points disadvantage of 2 points. In such a scenario, you would need the All Blacks to eventually win the match by three points.

If you decide to give them a 2-point disadvantage, then William Hill are currently offering their punters odds of 1.91.

3️⃣ Winning Margin

One market that I always check out is the winning margin one since it is one that usually has attractive odds because it is not an easy market to get correct. As I mentioned above, I am backing the All Blacks to win by 7 points, and Spreadex are currently offering odds of 5.50 for New Zealand to win by 6-10 points.

🎁 New Zealand v South Africa Free Bets and Rugby Betting Promotions

The sports betting industry is one of the most competitive industries around and experienced and new betting sites know that they need to stand out if they are to get the custom that is needed to survive. One way to try and entice new punters to register is by offering quality free bets.

There are plenty of top rugby betting promotions that Brits can make use of, and I have listed some of the best ones below for you, meaning you do not need to do any searching yourself. Before you claim any of them though, make sure that read the T&Cs that apply.
