With so many online bookmakers offering rugby betting, market coverage and bet selection are important criteria when choosing which one to use.
It wasn’t long ago that bookmakers would only cover the big matches in tournaments such as the Six Nations but this has changed dramatically and you can now bet on a huge range of matches from around the world.
Whether its England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, South Africa, New Zealand or Australia, you should find betting markets available for matches on the top rugby betting websites. Any bookmaker which does not offer markets on matches featuring these nations and clubs from these nations, should not be considered a serious rugby bookmaker.
BetVictor are considered one of the best bookmakers for their choice of rugby bets. They have a wide coverage of competitions and betting markets and Paddy Power, perhaps due to the popularity of the sport in Ireland, also have one of the best choices of competitions and markets on the internet.
Betting markets every serious rugby bookmaker should include are 3-Way Handicap, Double Result, Winning Margin, Exact Winning Margin, To Win Both Halves, Total Points, Highest Scoring Halve and First Team to Score.
In addition to the above-mentioned bookmakers, Bet365, BetFred, Coral and Ladbrokes all price up rugby markets quickly and have a good selection on their website.
