Wales v Uruguay betting tips, odds, predictions – RWC 2019 Match 39
Welcome to our free predictions and odds update for match 39 of the Rugby World Cup between Wales and Uruguay at Kumamoto Stadium on Sunday, October 13.
Wales will start $1.01 favourites with most online betting sites, as they round out their preparations for the quarter-finals, where a likely match-up against France awaits.
Uruguay, who are priced as long as $151 with some bookmakers, have won one out of three of their RWC’19 matches, the high coming when they stunned Fiji in their opening match, while the low came when they were soundly outpointed by Georgia.
Wales remain undefeated at the tournament, with their closest result being a 29-25 win over Australia, with their other two matches netting them bonus points.
The Welsh will be keen to tighten up their defence after leaking a few points against the Fijians on Wednesday, but the going will be easier against a Uruguay team that is showing signs of wear after a long campaign.
