Moneyline (Match Result)

The most straightforward way to enjoy rugby betting. You choose which side you think will win the game, then you wager on them. Always be aware, though, that rugby union matches can finish in a draw, so it’s a three-way market. There is no overtime if the teams are tied at the full-time whistle.
