Tip France - USA
France squeezed past Argentina in their first pool match in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. In an exciting game they beat Argentina 23-21 to improve their chances of again making it into the last eight of the world cup. They start this game in third place in the pool behind England, who have won both their games and Argentina who bounced back with a 28-12 win over Tonga. That took them to six points, two ahead of France. However, the French should have few problems in going back above the Argentinians as they take on the Americans. The USA lost their opening game to England by 45 points to seven and have only ever won one game against France with the other six being lost. France know their task here, get a win and a bonus point. Both should be achieved and the tip here is to back them on a handicap of -27 points.
Key points France - USA
France are ranked five places above their opponents.
France have only lost one of seven previous games played against the Americans.
America have only ever beaten Japan and Russia at a World Cup.
Conclusion France - USA
France beat Argentina in their opening game to boost their qualification hopes. Only winning by a couple of points handed Argentina a bonus point (yes you can get bonus points for losing!) and that could prove vital later in the pool. They need to go out and win this match and secure a bonus point for scoring four tries. They take on a USA side who lost heavily to England in their opener and France should be able to get their first win of the competition. Go for them to win on a -27 handicap.
