The Bledisloe Cup Decider – NZ vs AUS – Betting Tips & Predictions

Bledisloe Cup
The Bledisloe Cup

New Zealand host the Wallabies in the deciding match of this year’s Bledisloe Cup as Australia attempt to win at Eden Park for the first time since 1986, and Argentina travel to Pretoria to take on the Springboks as both teams warm-up for the World Cup in a tough match.

Predictions

The Bledisloe Cup

  • Australia have not won in Auckland since a 22-9 win in 1986. This represents one of their best opportunities for a win since then. The Wallabies face a difficult task, despite their record 47-26 Bledisloe Cup win in Perth last week.
  • New Zealand have lost only 4 matches to the Aussies at Eden Park, so history is on their side. The All Blacks look poised to win.

Betting Tips

New Zealand vs Australia – 17 August

Tip – New Zealand’s proud history in Eden Park goes on the line against the Wallabies as the All Blacks attempt to prolong an Aussies Bledisloe Cup-winning drought that dates back to 2002.

For the Aussies part, if they can stay with the All Blacks for the first half, they may stand a chance. However, we’re predicting New Zealand to pull away in the second half for the win.
