Tip Japan - Ireland
Both of these countries won their opening game in Pool A of this 2019 Rugby World Cup. Ireland had a convincing 27-3 win over Scotland, while Japan defeated Russia 30-10. The Iris side are ranked number one in the world and that's nine places above their opponents. Samoa currently top Pool A on points difference and Ireland will be keen not just to win this game but get those four tries to earn a bonus point. Seven previous internationals against Japan have all been won with an aggregate points diffence of +222.
Japan will have their home support of course but they have only won five matches out of 29 at the world cup finals and never reached the last eight. They beat Italy last year but wins against the highest ranked sides in the world are a rarity. They won't be beaten too heavily in this game and a bet on Ireland to win and be ahead at both half and full time is the suggested bet for this match.
