UPDATE - Tues 18th Sep.
We've reached the final stages of the 2011 RWC, with only the final and third-place playoff left to watch. Both games are North v South affairs, with the Southern Hemisphere sides starting as favourites on both occasions.

The firms are working on the assumption that the remaining two games will yield 83 points -which is an average of 41.5 per game. Even though we think that the end total may fall short if this, there is no real value here. But there may be in the shirt numbers market, as the last two games may end up as kicking duels. Selling at 3081 (Spreadex) makes more appeal.

Elsewhere, the yellow and red cards markets are still under their initial prices, if you fancy some interest, then buy the red card market at 2.1 -as you will have an immediate profit for what might be a moment of madness by a player. As the games get tighter, then the pressure on players will increase -and yellow card will seem a small price to pay if it gets a team into the final. In the red card market you're effectively getting 10/1 for a sending off.

We'll be keeping a very close watch on both Sporting Index's and Spreadex's websites -so if there's any value around, we'll be sure to pass it on to you !

Trading Talk – Rugby World Cup Final

There'll be plenty of spread bettors that feel it should be Wales taking on New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup final, but whatever the case, France have the opportunity to upset the odds on Sunday.

The contest will be the seventh Rugby World Cup final and spread buyers of the host's win index will be desperately hoping they can lift their first Webb Ellis trophy since the opening competition in 1987. Spread punters might be interested to learn that the 2011 showdown will be a repeat of the inaugural final – a game the All Blacks won 29-9.

Looking back through the finals will reveal to total point buyers that there have been a total of 182 points scored in the six matches at an average of 30 points per game. Total point buyers for Sunday's final will be hoping for a repeat of 1999 final between France and Australia where the Wallabies won 35-12. Those looking to sell total points on Sunday will highlight the 1991 game where there were just 18 points scored when Australia defeated England.

As it stands, New Zealand have scored 293 points to France's 152 during their six matches at this tournament. Spread sellers of the total points market will have been encouraged that France failed to score a try against a Welsh side with 14 men for the majority of the semi-final and accumulated just nine points.

Spread enthusiasts looking at the match supremacy market might have seen that in the six finals to date there have been two contests that have needed extra time to settle the game. Graham Henry's side also are the tournament's top try scorers this year and have ran in 39 thus far. France are seventh in the try scoring table with 15, which sellers of the underdog's points will be encouraged to hear.

Those keen on having a spread bet on the total tries market will likely recall that there were no five-pointers in the final four years ago. Spread sellers of total tries will be intrigued to learn that there have been ten tries scored in six finals and the highest total in a game was in 1987 when four players crossed the line.

Any spread bettors interested in the bookings index will be intrigued to find that Sonny Bill Williams' yellow card was the first the side have received at the tournament. Les Bleus have also only had one player sin-binned, which will spark debate amongst spread bettors planning on buying the bookings spread.

The two nations will meet for the 51st time in their history and it's the All Blacks that lead the head-to-head record with 38 victories to 12 defeats, which will please spread bettors buying the host's win index. Those spread punters selling the Kiwi's win index might well argue that Les Bleus have won three of the past four meetings. However these two rugby sides have already met once in the competition and it was the All Blacks that prevailed by 37 points to 17.
