05-11-2022 Daily Predictions International Rugby Wales vs New Zealand

Wales vs New Zealand

Wales plays host to New Zealand at the Principality Stadium for this match in the Autumn International series. The home side are still seeking their first win over the All Blacks since 1935 and will feel this is their best opportunity in a very long time to end their win drought. Wales have been decimated with injuries with captain Dan Biggar also out injured but they will be glad that they are playing an All Backs side that may be a little rusty as a few players did not feature in their last match against Japan. Wales must know that in order to beat the All Blacks they will need all facets of their game to come together especially their defense as the visitors can attack from anywhere on the

TIP: New Zealand will be without skipper Sam Cane for this match as he fractured his cheekbone while former world player of the year Brodie Retallick is also out due to suspension following his red card in the last match. New Zealand have lost their aura of invincibility in recent times but despite this they still managed to claim the Rugby Championship title this year. They suffered their first ever home losses against both Argentina and Ireland earlier this year and also lost a first ever home test series against Ireland. The bookies have New Zealand as the favourites and I am also backing them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.25, Playabets 1.23 and Sunbet 1.25

Latest results for both teams

Wales lost their last match 30-14 to the Springboks while New Zealand beat Japan 38-31 in their last match.

PREDICTION

This series is all about Wales preparing for next year’s Six Nations and World Cup so there could be some experimentation with the team selection. They will need to be weary of putting out too many new faces at once as they All Blacks could exploit this and put on a cricket score. New Zealand will be not fazed by the close contest with Japan in the last match as a number of first team players were not available. We are backing New Zealand to lead at halftime and to win the match by 15 points.
