England vs Japan rugby England vs Japan rugby

One of the more interesting games of week three of the Autumn Nation Series sees England take on Japan at Twickenham. The Brave Blossoms will be looking to prove they are a force to be reckoned with, as a rugby nation, but the hosts will want to redeem themselves after last week. Who will grab the all-important W? Let's find out how the scoreboard may look and what rugby betting markets may be worth considering.

The history is not a great indicator for England vs Japan betting, given how few rugby test matches have been played, but it still does point to an England win. Let's take a look at some other factors.

🌏 Comparison of World Rankings Rugby Union

The world rankings can be a good indicator for any rugby prediction. Given that the standings are constantly changing, this gives a fairly accurate picture of the strength of both teams: England are fifth, and Japan are tenth. If we just used this information, England still look the more likely to come away with smiles on their faces.

✔️ England vs Japan: Recent Form of the Teams

Looking at the recent form of the two teams before their England vs Japan fixture is a crucial way to see how they will perform and predict. Let's break down their Autumn Nations Series 2022 campaigns so far.

🌹 Matches Recap: England Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

England are looking very confused at the moment. In week two, I predicted a close game for England vs Argentina with the Rose coming out on top. Well, with players from the past on the pitch, old game plays and poor decision-making, Argentina took the honours 29-30. Head Coach, Eddie Jones admitted that he had not taken Los Pumas seriously and that he had focused too much on next year's Rugby World Cup. Whatever the reasons for defeat, does this bode well for England in week three? Not very much.

🌸 Matches Recap: Japan Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

'I'm giving this as a win for New Zealand. Will it be the huge score of the past? I don't think so.' (Words I wrote in my rugby prediction for the Japan vs New Zealand test.)

With a final score of just 31-38, that proved to be true - and what a fantastic game of rugby it turned out to be! The Brave Blossoms, although probably a touch disappointed that they couldn't quite clinch a true victory, will probably have still seen the result as a win in itself. I think that means Japan will come into this game fired up. I'm still not sure that such a performance means they have the form to pull off an upset in this game, but England beware! Any complacency in this match will be punished.

🌦️ Weather Conditions at Twickenham, London

As we all know, the weather can have a considerable influence on rugby matches. The forecast for the 12th is 14 degrees with some cloud, some sun. If it were to howl down, I would give the advantage to England, but with things looking like they will be mild, Japan should be able to cope with what could be barbecue weather for an English autumn.

🕵️ My England vs Japan Prediction Winner

To predict a winner for England vs Japan has proved to be difficult. This is going to be another close contest. With whatever result Japan come away from Twickenham, I think they are going to be incredibly happy. From an England perspective, however, both Coach and team are going to be under enormous pressure, which will mean they are going to find this one of the hardest matches they face in the Autumn Nations Series 2022. If they lose or win by a small margin, England rugby fans and the popular press will have a lot to say. Given that pressure, however, I am going to go with England to win by a margin of eight points.

💶 England vs Japan Betting Tips

Odds on England to win at 1.04 may be quite short for a lot of punters - especially given that I am predicting this is going to be a relatively close match of eight points. I would say that if you want to lengthen your odds whilst maintaining some small level of safety - remember that there are absolutely no guarantees in sports! - that it may be worth considering Japan (+21.5 points) to win at 1.64. You could also consider creating an accumulator with the two prior matches to this one: Ireland vs Fiji and Italy vs Australia.
