Played annually between the best provincial Rugby teams in the Southern Hemisphere, Super Rugby pits franchises from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina and Japan against each other to compete for the title. In recent years, sides from New Zealand have dominated the Super Rugby competition and 2018 was no different with the Canterbury Crusaders defeating South Africa’s Lions in the 2018 Super Rugby Final in Christchurch. What will happen in 2019? Argentina’s Jaguares ($13.00 to win the title in 2019) are a much improved unit and Japan’s Sunwolves ($501.00) will be looking for a strong showing ahead of their nation hosting the Rugby World Cup later in 2019. Checking the best sports betting sites, take the Crusaders at $4.00 to repeat their 2018 triumph. What about the Aussies? Super Rugby 2019 Championship Odds: $19.00 Not the worst team in the competition, worth a few dollars bet if you believe the young Brumbies will live up to their promise and David Pocock is fit and available. Super Rugby 2019 Championship Odds: $51.00 Brad Thorn’s young Queensland Reds team will continue to improve, but not enough to win the title. A finals campaign would be a huge reward for this young side. Super Rugby 2019 Championship Odds: $34.00 The Melbourne Rebels will continue to improve and finals would be their realistic aim. Super Rugby 2019 Championship Odds: $10.00 This could be the Waratahs best chance to win the title with the New Zealand teams looking to rest many stars ahead of the World Cup.
