USA vs Tonga (4:45pm AEDT)
Tonga (-4.5)

An interesting match looms between the USA and Tonga on Sunday afternoon. There’s nothing more than bragging rights on offer for either, but there looks to be terrific value around Tonga particularly, who pushed Pool heavyweights France all the way last weekend.

It was always going to be a big task for Tonga to progress from the Pool stage and while it did take them a little way to find form, their most recent effort was outstanding and a repeat of that would see them flogging the United States.

The US are outclassed virtually every time they step out at a Rugby World Cup and that is the case once again. The line is incredible only 4.5 points and I am more than happy to be with Tonga.

Wales vs Uruguay (7:15pm AEDT)
Uruguay (+44.5)

Wales will sew-up top spot in Pool D with a win over Uruguay and it is important to note that they are suspended in head-to-head betting, so is the class difference between these two nations. You can have $67 about Uruguay at publish.

Wales continued their undefeated streak past Fiji most recently, albeit a reasonably tight affair, while Uruguay have been unable to replicate their opening game heroics and will head home after this.

I think that Wales will be in cruise control and given Uruguay has actually played some competitive rugby, I’ll be happy to follow them as outsiders at the line again.

Japan vs Scotland (9:45pm AEDT)
Scotland (-3.5)

The match of the weekend looks like materialising when the host nation lock horns with Scotland, potentially with a finals berth on the line.

The Brave Blossoms have been nothing short of outstanding at the 2019 Rugby World Cup. They were too good for both Russia and Samoa, while their shock win over world number two Ireland was a thing of legend.

Scotland weathered a tough loss to Ireland first-up but have since come on in a big way and enter this off the back of a huge win over Russia. I think they are fitting favourites and I actually think they’ll win this comfortably.
