Australia v Georgia betting tips, odds, predictions – RWC 2019 Match 33
Welcome to our free predictions and odds update for match 33 of the Rugby World Cup between Australia and Georgia at Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa on Friday, October 11.
Australia are already safely through to the quarter-finals, where they will almost certainly meet England, whose final pool match against France on Saturday has been cancelled because of Super Typhoon Hagibis, which could play havoc with the matches scheduled all weekend.
The Wallabies suffered a defeat in their pool match against Wales but went down fighting and have been passable in their other matches.
Whether they can challenge for the title is another matter and they will want to win this game impressively and go into the quarters with some sort of momentum. The weather is expected to be warm but showery, and of course their forwards will face a stern examination against the tough Georgians who have won plenty of fans with their uncompromising style.
Leading bookmakers are offering about $19 about Australia winning the title, so now is the time to step in if you think they can land a third world title.
Meanwhile, Georgia will bow out of the World Cup after this match. They racked up a win against Uruguay but would have been disappointed with their display against Fiji so will want to finish on a high here.

Australia v Georgia tips RWC2019
Australia -25.5 points at $1.91
It seems a reachable handicap for the Wallabies, who were a little unlucky in their loss to Wales. They will want to put in a big all-round effort and we think they are capable of restricting the Georgians to under 10 points while scoring 40-plus themselves.
Marika Koroibete first try-scorer at $8
The Wallabies outside back has looked a real handful throughout the tournament. We can see him crashing over early.
Australia v Georgia prediction
Australia and Georgia have not played before so we are heading into the unknown but Australia, while maybe not the powerhouse of past years, are still a genuine contender for this title. Georgia just lack the flair to put on enough points to worry them. The Wallabies have had a problem collecting yellow cards in this tournament so will need to be more careful of high shots. They should win and win handsomely.
