With Japan’s shock victory over the Springboks securing one pundit a healthy pay out, we have a look at some of the outrageous amounts of money you could make betting on the unlikely outcomes at the Rugby World Cup with the TAB.
If you place $10 on Japan to continue their winning form all the way to the final, you could net a cool $1,000.
Bet just $1 on Namibia and Uruguay to make the final and you might net $6,502 if the unthinkable happens.
If you fancy Nehe Milner-Skudder’s ability to be the highest points scorer in the tournament you could net $1,004 with a $4 bet. He’s one of the best rugby players ever. And if you back Richie McCaw to be the tournament’s leading try scorer, you could earn an $810 with a $10 bet.
If your $2,000 bet on the All Blacks not leaving the pool stages comes true, you could be New Zealand’s next millionaire.
Having a hard time picking the final two teams? Bet $10 on a South Africa vs Samoa final and you could be $25,010 better off.
