Place your bets for the upcoming rugby world cup match between Australia and Fiji. Australia is one of a group of teams that is considered to have a slightly less-than-reasonable chance of winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup, while Fiji is considered to be an outrageous long shot.

For this reason, we shouldn't be surprised to see that Australia is a sizeable favourite to defeat Fiji on Friday as the 2019 Rugby World Cup opens up in Japan.

Australia and Fiji are both in Group D, which also consists of the likes of Wales, Georgia and Uruguay. Wales and Australia are considered to be the two best teams (by far) in Pool D, and most everybody (including the sports books) expects them to advance to the knockout stage.

The eventual third place finisher in Pool D receives an automatic qualification to the 2023 Rugby World Cup, so this game will be an important one for Fiji, even if they don't have much of a chance of winning.

Australia is a multiple time Rugby World Cup champion, having last won in 1999. New Zealand has taken over in recent years, however, and Australia will have an uphill battle wresting the title from their Southern Hemisphere foes.
