SBG Global would like to present you with some fact about Rugby.

It’s important if you are going to bet on Rugby to understand the game which was first played before the 19th century and the first set of Rules & Regulation were adopted in 1845.  Commonly known as Rugby Football until 1985 after a monetary disputed Rugby was split in the Rugby Union and the Rugby League with both being played in this era with slightly different rules.

In 1871, the first laws regulating the Rugby Union were inscribed as a method for getting the 21 clubs in existence at the time to adhere to the common set of regulations that would ensure fair play and protection for players in the entire country.  The sport grew within Britain relating to that Empire. Then in 1864 in Australia, Sydney became the first community to form a Rugby Club.

Then in 1886 an International Rugby Board (IRB) was formed as a result of a dispute in an International match between Britain and Scotland.   It was not until 1990 than Britain joined this group as they had chosen the regulations of the IRFB (International Rugby Football Board).  In these modern times, the IRB is the Governing Board for International Rugby.

Wagering Rules:

  • All wagering is for only 80 minutes of play with extra time not counted.
  • Should a game be changed and is different from advertised, all bets are voided.
  • If a match is postponed or abandoned, all bets will be void on the day of the match.

Handicap Match Wagering:  In this scenario you are wagering on a team to win a match after the wagering lines have been posted. Also, you can wager on the 1sthalf of the match as the line is applicable to the half-time scores.

Winning Margin Wagering: In this case you are wagering on the number of points the winning team will win the match by. Here you are wagering from scratch with both teams beginning the match with zero Points.

40 Minute Wagering: Here you are betting on what the half-time score of the match will be.

Some other wagers that may be offered in the form of proposition wagers are the following:

  1. Double Win-wagering on team to score first who will also win the match.
  2. Team to win both 40 minute Half’s – here you wager on a team to score more points in the 1st half and the 2nd half that of the match than the opponent.
  3. Race to 10 Points – Here you are wagering on which team will score 10 points, and if neither team scores 10 points the wager is refunded.
  4. Salami – this is wagering on the total number of points that will be scored by all teams for a day round of matches.

Wagering Options

There exist many wagering options for Rugby that relate to the same rules and regulations that were developed for Rugby the 1800s.  The betting options that are most common are the ones that apply to the match.  Those being match winners, 1st attempt scorer, last attempt scorer, 1st points scorer, team to score 1st penalty and several others.

Also there are wagering options that apply to championships in general and these options have watering odds that are constantly changing throughout the competition like the winner of  the tournament, most points scored in the tournament, and most tries to score by a player and/or others.  The options are normally favorites with casual gamblers whom are  not wagering on rugby on a daily basis but prefer to wager only on the tournaments that occur.
