England vs. Argentina Rugby World Cup – England odds on to avoid on upset agains the Pumas

Published

on

England will look to make it three wins from three in the Rugby World Cup Group Stage when they face Argentina on Saturday.

Eddie Jones’ side have yet to be tested in Japan securing back to back bonus point victories against Tonga and USA. And while Argentina should provide a sterner test, it’s a game England will be expecting to win. After all, they’ve not lost to the Pumas in the last nine meetings and ten years.

If England do claim the points in Tokyo, then Argentina’s tournament will effectively be over. A narrow 23-21 defeat against France in their opening Pool C game could cost them massively.

With a week between England’s clash with Argentina and final Pool game against France, which could be a shoot out for top spot, it’s unknown whether Jones will make many changes or not. Piers Francis was cited for a high tackle against USA, so he’s set to face a disciplinary panel. While Mako Vunipola, Henry Slade and Jack Nowell are all in contention to play some part in the game.

Argentina have no major injury concerns, but could recall Nicolas Sanchez and former captain Augustin Creevy.

The two sides last met at Twickenham in 2017 where England ran out 21-8 victors. England are 8/11 to win by 13 or more points. Argentina, though, will be fighting for their lives so it would be no surprise to see a close encounter. Argentina +8 is 15/8.

England are huge favourites at 2/13 with Argentina 7/1 to cause an upset.
