New Zealand vs Namibia (2:45pm)
New Zealand (-69.5)

The biggest mismatch of the 2019 Rugby World Cup looks like playing out between the All Blacks and Namibia on Sunday afternoon.

There is obviously an enormous class difference here; New Zealand remain tournament favourites, while Namibia have never won at game at the tournament.

The line is set at 69.5 points and I think that the All Blacks will cover it easily.

France vs Tonga (5:45pm)
Tonga (+25.5)

Another class difference, but not nearly as big a disparity. France have returned two pleasing efforts at the Rugby World Cup so far and will all but confirm passage to the next round by beating Tonga.

Tonga are 0-2 following losses to England and Argentina, the latter by a margin of only sixteen points.

Given how close the France vs Argentina game was, I think that a similar margin with be produced in this match and I’m happy to be with Tonga as the outsiders, at the line.
