New Zealand
They can lay all their former ghosts to rest by winning the 2011 RWC on home soil -and this without their talismanic kicker Dan Carter. The All Blacks start the final as big favourites over France, but will be remembering their defeat at the hands of Les Bleus back on Halloween in 1997. They will be hoping to avoid a similar nightmare this time around!
Verdict: Their spread at 97.5-98.5 is probably best left alone -there's better value elsewhere in the list.

Les Bleus rode their luck in the semi-final against Wales -they looked lost in the first 20 mins, but the sending-off of Warburton swung the game massively in their favour. Even then, they still only just fell over the line. We don't expect a repeat of 1997 and can see them getting beaten quite easily.
Verdict: No value in selling them, look somewhere else to make your world cup fortune.

Their 'final' was against the All Blacks in the semi-final. It was a brutal affair and they will be hoping theat the third-place payoff against the Welsh is an easier task. We believe they will rise to the occasion and take a well-deserved third spot.
Verdict: Look like a reasonable buy at 56.25, they should finish in third place at least.

Denied a famous 14-man victory in their semi against the French, they will want to sign off in style against the Aussies. They may struggle to lift themselves yet again -going down quietly.
Verdict: At 53.75-54.5 they are the underdogs and with good reason -might be worth selling.

So there are all the teams and their relative merits... you can find all the prices at Sporting Index -they will change after every game so get there early!
