Unbiased Lists & Research

Sportsbook review sites tend to to list every company that they have researched.  In essence, the review sites are simply hoping to trade on a brand name, that you’ll recognize a name or logo and click through to start playing. I’m not interested in that approach.

If a company fails to meet my standards, they do not warrant inclusion in my lists.  I examine each service with regard to their reputation, record of fairness (cancelled bets), timely & free withdrawals, the number of available  banking methods, use of secure technology, use of advanced technology for mobile and live betting in-play.  

Above all of this, I want to make sure the sportsbook pays proper attention to rugby as other sports get far more.  Rugby fans want to be able to log on and view the odds for next big match so they can place their bet.  Each listed site ensures this is possible for their players.  As a result of the above criteria, you might notice some famous brands are missing as they fail to pay rugby the proper attention.

About the order of each list

I do not rank sportsbooks in order of any preference.  They are listed in alphabetical order with numbers ordered after letters.  I would be extremely comfortable registering and betting on rugby with any of these companies, however there are differences in their offerings.

Read the brief summaries, browse by country, by currency and read the reviews to see what is right for you.  I also provide some helpful articles under the ‘more resources’ header in the navigation bar to provide some direction if you’re not sure how to begin.  

Known mainly for high paying football odds, BetVictor also offers quality odds and perhaps the widest set of rugby betting markets.  With an excellent mobile wagering platform with live betting , they are an excellent option for the English rugby fan.  Read the BetVictor rugby review

In our opinion, since 2000, bet365 has become one of the biggest names in the sportsbook business.  What’s the reason?  They offer the best mobile and in-play betting platforms.  Critical to rugby fans, they offer coverage of every Rugby League and Rugby Union match with a massive array of betting markets.  

Rugby World Cup Betting

The IRB Rugby World Cup is an international Rugby Union tournament played once every four years, with 20 countries competing for the title.  The 2015 World Cup is the next tournament and is scheduled to be held in England with the Final to be held at the famed Twickenham Stadium. No doubt New Zealand, Australia and South Africa will be itching to win bragging rights as they are all tied with two World Cup wins a piece.

Below, I list each of the best rugby betting sites for most bettors around the World.  I describe how each sportsbook approaches their coverage of the Rugby World Cup in terms of the bets on offer.  For the best Rugby World Cup winner odds, you might wish to compare your odds using a service like for the highest returns.

While these sites are all fantastic for their respective approaches, you may want to read about various restrictions about bettors from certain countries or the ability to play in certain currencies.  You may read more about these issues by clicking through to read a given sportsbook’s full review, or browse my other lists by clicking to view countries or currencies or by hovering over the navigation bar above.
