RLWC Tips – Australia v Scotland – Pool B

Addo Carr - RLWC Betting Tips

Australia are set to put on a show when they meet Scotland in Coventry with an incredibly big line not big enough for an Aussie side made up of players looking to push into the best 17.

Best Bet

Australia -61.5

Games like this are strange. Australia will, of course, win and win by as many as they want. Will that number be more than 62? Given the makeup of the team then yes looks the answer.

Mal Meninga has handed debuts to a number of players who are legitimate chances of pushing their way into the best 17 and a spot in a World Cup final. The addition of the likes of Cleary, Burton and Yeo should see a far sharper and more relentless Australian team this week.

Scotland are awful. Seriously awful. Perhaps the worst team at the World Cup. Their lack of energy is perhaps the most concerning aspect.

The rains are forecast for Coventry but even still the -61.5 looks very light on for a team with speed, skill and most importantly, a need to put on a big score.

Same Game Multi

Josh Addo-Carr 2+ Tries/Angus Crichton Try/Harry Grant Try
Same Game Multi

Josh Addo-Carr scored a double against Fiji and had five doubles in the NRL this season.

Angus Crichton scored in both the PMXIII and Fiji games and scored in five of his last eight NRL games.

Harry Grant scored against Fiji and loves darting at the line, a tactic that will reap rewards against Scotland.

Value Bet

Matt Burton
3+ Tries

Matt Burton had a great tryscoring season at Penrith when playing left centre with Nathan Cleary and Isaah Yeo on the inside. That combination also netted results for NSW. Scotland are going to have gaps everywhere and Burton looks best placed to take full advantage, who leaked most of their tries down their right hand side against Italy.
