New Zealand favourites to topple England

New Zealand are 4/6 favourites to defeat England and progress to the Four Nations Final, according to Apollo Bet.

Stephen Kearney’s men are strong favourites outright, but have a four point margin to catch up in the match handicap stakes.

England are 7/5 win beat the current Four Nations holders, and overcome the odds to make their third Tri Nations and Four Nations final since 2004. A draw, which would send New Zealand through to the final on points percentage, is priced at 16/1.

Despite not scoring against Australia, Sam Tomkins is the tournament’s leading try scorer after touching down four times against Wales in the opening weekend. He is 10/1 to score first for England, but is not the favourite.

Jason Nightingale is favourite to score first for New Zealand after scoring one try in both of New Zealand’s two games so far. Gerard Beale’s two tries against Wales put him at 9/1 to open the game’s try scoring, while the Kiwi’s Kevin Locke and England’s Ryan Hall join Tomkins at 10/1.

The race to ten points sees New Zealand priced at 8/11, while England are 21/20 to score ten points first.

Wales are a massive 40/1 to defeat Australia, while the Aussies are priced at 1/500. Should history repeat itself like in the 2000 World Cup semi final, where Wales led Australia at half time before succumbing to a 46-22 defeat, would see a payout of 22/1.

Australia are 28/1 to win by a margin of 1-12 points, but 1/66 to win by 13 or more.
