Tri Nations Footy Bets

September 10th, 2010

The third and final battle between the Wallabies and All Blacks will be played this Saturday, September 11. This match also marks the end of this year’s Tri Nation’s tournament. The All Blacks sewed up the championship title quite some time ago, and Australia secured second place with their win over the Springboks last week at Vodacom Park. The match may see the tournament winding down, but it won’t be any less intense as both of these teams are coming into this one with a ton of confidence.

This looks to be the year that the Aussies shake their bad Tri Nations luck. They’ve already posted the best winning record they’ve had in years and are bursting with confidence after their massive win over the South Africans last week. Did we mention that it was their first at altitude in nearly 50 years?

The All Blacks have thoroughly proven their number one raking in the world with their thus far undefeated run in this tournament. They’re coming into this one with two full weeks of rest. The rejuvenated squad – minus Dan Carter – will no doubt want to finish off this tournament by sweeping the competition.

The game is right around the corner, so now is the time to get to to place your wagers. They’re offering a whole slew of odds for all types of punters to choose from. Of course, you’ll find all of the standards like head-to-heads, lines, and margins, but you’ll also find ten different specials that allow you to take a stab at a variety of different aspects.
