Amazon Prime is the place to be for a feast of action as we look to seek out some autumn international betting tips.
Scotland v South Africa (Sat, 1.00pm)
The Scots continue to prove they are a force to be reckoned with in northern hemisphere rugby and are 15/8 to follow up their victory over Australia against the world champions.
Gregor Townsend’s side have won four on the bounce and showed plenty of discipline to hold off the Wallabies last weekend.
The Springboks will be hoping to keep quiet Scotland’s enigmatic fly-half Finn Russell, while they will also be paying close attention to South African-born Duhan Van Der Merwe, who was the leading try scorer in this year’s Six Nations.
Ireland v New Zealand (Sat, 3.15pm)
The All Blacks continue to be the driving force of world rugby and have beaten all-comers so far on their travels.
The 1/4 favourites for this Aviva Stadium contest won five of their six Rugby Championship games earlier in the year and made it 13 wins from their last 14 with a 47-9 win in Rome last weekend.
Ireland themselves have a six-game winning run to defend and are 3/1 to repeat their historic victory from the last time the two sides met in Dublin.
England v Australia (Sat, 5.30pm)
Having racked up a convincing 69-3 victory over Tonga last weekend, England are chalked up at 1/6 to win again as they welcome the Wallabies to Twickenham.
The visitors are reeling following their 15-13 loss to Scotland last time and they are available at 4/1 for autumn international betting tips to bounce back and record a first win at Rugby HQ since the 2015 World Cup.
The Red Rose ran home 11 tries during their rout over the Polynesians and Eddie Jones’ side will be hoping to cross the try line with regularity once again.
England have racked up at least 30 points in their last five outings against Australia. It is 10/11 for England –12 on the handicap and recent head-to-head results has seen that land comfortably in the last four meetings between these two.
Wales v Fiji (Sun, 3.15pm)
It has been a bitter-sweet autumn series so far for the Welsh, who have been far from disgraced but have ultimately suffered back-to-back defeats.
A 54-16 defeat to New Zealand was followed by a 23-18 reversal to South Africa last weekend.
Having led 12-9 at half-time, the hosts still held the advantage with seven minutes left on the clock, before the Springboks snatched victory thanks to a try from replacement Malcolm Marx.
Wayne Pivac’s side are 1/3 to end a four-game winless run here, while the last of our autumn international betting tips is 10/11 for them to successfully cover a 13-point handicap against the Pacific Islanders at the Principality Stadium.
