New Zealand v Namibia betting tips, odds, predictions – RWC 2019 Match 27
Welcome to our free predictions and odds update for match 27 of the Rugby World Cup between New Zealand and Namibia at Tokyo Stadium on Sunday, October 6.
We wrote in our preview to the New Zealand-Canada game that we thought Canada at $151 were the biggest outsiders we had seen in head-to-head match betting.
Well, we now have to think again as $201 is available about Namibia to beat the All Blacks in this clash.
Also the line here is -68.5 points, compared with -65.5 points against Les Rouges. The All Blacks, as we predicted, could not quite cover that line in winning 63-0 against Canada.
Can they do it at the bigger line? Read on to find out our opinions on how this mismatch will play out.

New Zealand v Namibia tip RWC2019
New Zealand -68.5 points at $1.91
We mentioned we don’t like taking on the huge handicaps but if you are going to do it with any team it may as well be the best. The All Blacks will want to really make a statement as several players jockey for starting positions. The weather should be OK. too.
New Zealand v Namibia prediction
We think the Kiwis by plenty here as they look to tune up ahead of the finals. Namibia have defended fairly well but the All Blacks have a ruthless streak in them; they are, after all, the two-time defending champions.
