Georgia to beat Fiji to make it back to back wins.

<div><h2><strong>Georgia v Fiji</strong></h2><p><strong>Wednesday 3<sup>rd</sup> October 2019</strong></p><p>Uruguay caused the first shock of the tournament with a 30-27 victory over Fiji who some felt could be a dark horse in this years’ world cup. After that defeat Fiji know it’s win or bust in this match and that may leave the door open for Georgia to follow up their 33-7 win over Uruguay and make it two world cup wins on the bounce which is the first time that has even happened. Georgia will have gained huge confidence by only conceding the 7 points to Uruguay and should they defend this well again, then they should create enough chances to win the match. Fiji need to leave everything on the field, but with lapses in concentration, may not be enough to deliver when it matters. This game is sure to be close, so we’re putting up Georgia to win between 1-12 points.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby Betting Odds"><em><strong>Tip: Georgia to win by 1-12 points on winning margin market at 4.3 (10/3) with Ladbrokes</strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://www.irishtimes.com/polopoly_fs/1.3629298.1536929955!/image/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/box_620_330/image.jpg" style="width:700px;height:373px" /></strong></p><h2><b>Ireland v Russia</b></h2><p><b>Thursday 3<sup>rd</sup> October 2019</b></p><p>Ireland suffered a surprise loss to Japan in their last match and were stunned by the constant pressure and resilience of the hosts. Ireland looked tired as the match went on and Japan had a lot of outstanding play by the backs which pinned Ireland back in the second half. Japan were behind at half time, but 2<sup>nd</sup> half they dominated and Ireland had no answer. Next up for Ireland is Russia, who are one of the weakest sides in this world cup. They must get a bonus point and score 4 tries plus get back on track as the pool is now wide open. Ireland will win here, but need to put in a convincing display to give them confidence when they face their final pool match. For Russia, they will look to not get humiliated by a 50+ margin of victory for Ireland. The take on this from a betting perspective is to look at the handicap and at 53 points, this is too high, so Russia +53 is our play here.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby Betting Odds"><em><b>Tip: Russia (+53points) on the handicap spread market at 2.0 with Bet365</b></em></a></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2><b>South Africa v Italy</b></h2><p><b>Friday 4<sup>th</sup> October 2019</b></p><p>South Africa got back to winning ways with a big win over minnows Namibia. They face Italy next in which is their most challenging of the remaining pool matches they face. Italy will be competitive following their back to back wins over Namibia and Canada respectively scoring 47 and 48 points in each match. Unfortunately for Italy their winning run will come to an end against South Africa, however this would be a 30+ win for South Africa given the improvement in Italian rugby. Italy have played two solid matches and impressed both with the ball and in defence. They will be physical and combative against the skills of the South African team, however they won’t be able to compete with the constant pressure and class of one of the world cup favourites. We’re putting up South Africa to win between 21-30 points in this match at 3.75 (11/4) with Ladbrokes.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby Betting Odds"><em><b>Tip: South Africa to win by 21-30 points on winning margin market at 3.75 (11/4) with Ladbrokes</b></em></a></p></div>
