U20 JWC France 2018
I will say this to those who are new to this betting format, do not and I can only say it again to stress the importance of what I am about to say, DO NOT think you know what is going on here, DO NOT think you are Bullet proof here, you ARE NOT, these are KIDS and they play like kids, they make mistakes and like I have heard a number of people say in the past, NO ONE GOES ONTO A FIELD TO MAKE MISTAKES, sure those who are bought and may be involved in match fixing do, but the rest do not, these are kids and your bets should reflect that you understand this. It is easy to lose in a tournament like this just as it is easy to win.
I am of the opinion that this kind of a tournament is priced up by juniors and the seniors leave it alone because the big punters do not a have a go or they think that it is not important, I always have a go at these below the radar tournaments as they often offer value.
Last year I made a profit and this year should be no different, but again money management and discipline are the key to success, obviously great calls help, but the former do provide the key.
Games take place in three towns: Narbonne, Perpignan and Beziers, on Game Day Two (GDT) they play over two time slots: 14h00 GMT +2 & 16h30 GMT +2
Australia v Japan
Aussie take on Japan who got thumped by sixty seven on Gameday one, this handicap at around forty seems about right, neither side gives me any confidence, so I will stay out, but if forced I would go minus. Call: No Bet Called
France v Georgia
Best bet of the day here, I felt Georgia played ok v SA and I remember the No nine from last year, he has a great boot on him, I felt France were poor in front of their home crowd, they could not put Ireland away and Ireland were average. Georgia will be on a high after taking SA close. Call: Georgia +29.5 at 3 units
Scotland v Argentina
Argentina lost on handicap in Gameday one at the death, they have been given a modest minus here and I am of the opinion they will cover it easily. Scotland impressed me v Italy, but they were the plus team and they were poor towards the end as they let Italy back in. Call: Argentina -8.5 at 0.5 units
England v Italy
This one seems to high, but not high enough to smash it, Italy are better than they have been in recent years and thsi quote appears to be priced up on stats and not on current form. Call: Italy +24.5 at 0.5 units
New Zealand v Wales
NZ started off with a minus 63 and although they covered it the last twenty minutes they scored a solitary try in the 79th minute. If NZ wants to win this tournament, they cannot take their foot of the pedal. Wales impressed me v Aussie the other night and I think this handicap is a tad too high and the plus gets my call Call: Wales +29.5 at 2 units
South Africa v Ireland
South Africa were diabolical in gameday one, they were lucky to win in my opinion, today they play Ireland who most would have thought played well against France, but I saw normal Ireland and poor France, it was difficult to work out which one of France or SA were worse. Call: SA -9.5 at 1 unit
