South Africa vs Italy (7:45pm)
Italy (+25.5)

Italy continue to lead the way in Pool B, but this is the point of the tournament that they will start to struggle. Justifiably, they are rank $15 outsiders to beat South Africa ($15), but they do have some upside and I think that they can finishing within the 25.5-point line.

Given, the Italians have only lined up opposite Namibia and Canada so far, but their most-recent performance in particular was tight, and they will both improve from the hit-out and aim higher against this far tougher task.

The Springboks’ class and record speaks for itself and they should be winning.
