The England vs. Wales 2015 live stream and televised Rugby World Cup matchup will be among the major games played early in this tournament. Right now, both teams are at the top of their Pool with five points having won their earlier matches. However, a victory for either side would be huge in giving them control of the top spot. More importantly, a win for England could give them some extra ground in terms of points differential. The live streaming and TV coverage of the game will be worldwide on different sources for viewers.
According to The Telegraph in a Sept. 26 report, tonight’s game at Twickenham Stadium could be the one to watch in terms of determining who progresses from Pool A. For the English side, Stuart Lancaster is looking to change up the lineup a bit as the injured Ben Morgan is set to be replaced by Billy Vunipola. Owen Farrell will replace George Ford and Sam Burgess will also start, replacing Jonathan Joseph at the inside center position. That will shift teammate Brad Barrit to the outside.
Coming into this matchup, this a crucial game to win. Right now, the two teams are tied with five points but the Welsh side has the points differential working in their favor. If England loses, it would give them a tougher time to escape Pool A, needing to defeat Australia and Uruguay in their last games. It would be a crushing blow if the side hosting the tournament is unable to get past the Pool Play. If Wales loses, they’re also looking at a “must win two games” situation against Australia and Fiji. So far, all of the teams in this group have shown just how tough the “Pool of Death” can be to compete in.
So who will be the favorite tonight? Since the matchup is in their backyard, England will be a -345 favorite on the moneyline with the point spread at 7-1/2 in their favor. Wales are currently +265 underdogs with a draw priced at +1800. A total for the game will be around 37-1/2 for the entire match, so over/under bettors will need to consider how this match might go. Right now, England, the fourth best team in the world in the sport, has 20 to 1 odds to win the Rugby World Cup.
