England v Argentina betting tips, odds, predictions – RWC 2019 Match 25
Welcome to our free predictions and odds update for match 25 of the Rugby World Cup between England and Argentina at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday, October 5.
Things are about to get real for the highly fancied England side, who have had a soft introduction to the World Cup with wins against Tonga and the USA.
They now face Argentina followed by France, two matches which will give a much better guide to their chances of doing some damage in the finals.
The way things have gone in Pool D, if England can top their pool as expected they would most likely face Australia in a quarter-final.
The Pumas have won four and drawn one of 23 matches against England but their latest win came in 2009. England are gunning for their 10th straight win in the head-to-head match-up.
England are more than capable of matching Argentina’s traditional strength up front, but they will still get a testing workout against a team fighting for its survival in this World Cup.

England v Argentina tips RWC2019
Argentina +14.5 points at $1.91
While the Pumas’ recent record against all-comers is not great, they are battle hardened with matches against some of the best teams in the world in New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. They will be a tough nut to crack even for the talented English side.
Manu Tuilagi anytime try-scorer at $2
The Samoa-born powerhouse has been in menacing form and looks the most dangerous of the back-line players for England so far.
England v Argentina prediction
We expect England to get over the line but not with anywhere near the ease with which they have dispatched Tonga and the USA. England to win a tight one and keep charge of the pool.
