This series is all about making the most of limited opportunities. For England, the Kiwi’s danger man is always Shaun Johnson – he has the uncanny knack to continually produce miracle plays out of nothing. Any Englishmen in the squad who remember the 2013 World Cup semi-final may still be having recurring Shaun Johnson nightmares. As for England, their play will be about slowing things down and setting their own tempo by maintaining a high percentage of completions, controlling repeat sets and kicking deep into the corners. England start the first match as favourites on the back of their 36-18 win over the Kiwis in June at Mile High Stadium in Denver. However, this is a very different New Zealand side. Regardless, we like the $3.10 on offer for England to win by 1-12 points as New Zealand push the home team all-the-way. It should be a fantastic series and we can’t wait for the games at Hull’s KC Stadium, Liverpool’s famous Anfield, and Elland Road in Leeds.
