Rugby Spread Betting at SBG Euro

If you are unfamiliar with Rugby Union spread betting we’ll take a look at some of the options for betting rugby and a little bit about the game in general.

Rugby spread betting involves the normal option of betting on which team will win the match in addition to other possible rugby betting choices like first scoring play, halftime odds and winning margin. Rugby begins with what is called a “scrum.” This is where eight players come together to start the game quickly. The teams just battle with strength against each other’s front lines to move the ball forward. Rugby Union betting is often referred to as just rugby or rugger. It is also called football.

Rugby Union

A rugby Union match lasts for 80 minutes. Points are awarded for scoring with another player or trying to kick the ref. A try is worth 5 points and is scored when the ball is grounded within the opponent's in-goal. A goal is scored by kicking the ball over the crossbar of the opponent's goal. Teams can score a goal with a dropped goal, a penalty goal, or a conversion.

The game of rugby begins with the scrum and then teams try and score a try while the opposing team forms a ruck to try and get the ball back. Rugby Union action does not allow the ball to be passed forwards. The defending team stops the ball carrier by tackling them. The tackled player must pass or give up the ball.

Ruby Union betting is offered on most major rugby tournaments including the Trinations, Six Nations and Bledisloe Cup. Another popular rugby spread betting tournament is the Super 12. That is a round robin tournament in which teams play 11 games in the first phase. Teams get four points for a win, two for a draw and no points for a loss. The top four sides at the end of the first phase qualify for the semifinals. The two winners then advance to the final with the winner hosting the game.
