New Zealand World Cup Betting

New Zealand seem to go into every Rugby World Cup as the bookies favourites in the outright betting odds to win it but more often than not they seem to come undone when expected to go all the way. This time though the All Blacks are on home soil and will take all the beating, they have proven themselves as the best team in the world over the past couple of years and will need to back that up when it really matters at the Rugby World Cup.

New Zealand will go into the 2011 Rugby World Cup betting as the hot favourites with the bookmakers to end a World Cup drought that has lasted since 1997, time and time again they have flattered to deceive on the world stage and there will be one or two waiting for them to slip up once again.

The New Zealand Rugby World Cup team will be hugely strong with the team being led by the brilliant Dan Carter who has turned himself into the best player in the world over the past five years. Carter barely misses a kick when on form as well as dictating the tempo of the play for the All Blacks; if he arrives at the tournament on top form then New Zealand team will be hugely difficult to beat especially with home support behind them.

As well as Carter the All Blacks will look towards Richie McCaw who as Captain will be leading from the front as he has done for many years now, he has developed into the best back-rower in the World and on his day can destroy any team. McCaw will lead out the All Blacks in Pool A where apart from a tough looking fixture against France they should have no problem making it through to the last eight.
