Series Handicap


Given the Lions’ unconvincing start against minor teams, it is no surprise that New Zealand are the overwhelming favourites for the series. Indeed, Bet365 currently offer 8/13 on New Zealand covering the -2.5 handicap (basically to win series 3-0). It is hard to argue with those odds.

Series Handicap 3-Way


This Bet365 market also involves a handicap tie, a very unlikely scenario but possible nonetheless. New Zealand -2 (tie) (basically to win series 2-0) is 20/1. This would require New Zealand to win two games and draw the other. Lions +2 is 11/8, meaning the Lions would have to avoid defeat in two of the three games.

To Win Outright


Bet365 currently make New Zealand 1/7 to win the series. A draw is priced at 40/1 for those looking for a fanciful punt. The British and Irish Lions are 5/1 to achieve a historic triumph on Antipodean soil.

Series Correct Score


Bet365 offer 10 permutations for this market. As noted, New Zealand are 8/13 to win 3-0. The Lions are 40/1 to win all 3 games, whilst a 0-0 draw (all 3 games tied) is unsurprisingly 2500/1. The majority of outcomes are highly unlikely and New Zealand are strongly fancied to put the Lions to the sword.

Series Draw No Bet


This removes the possibility of a tie, with New Zealand 1/8 and Lions 5/1.

Correct Score after 2 Tests


The clue is in the title and Bet365 go 1/2 that NZ will be 2-0 up.

Leader after 2 Tests


This Bet365 market asks who will be leading the series after 2 Tests. New Zealand are 4/9 favourites with the draw priced at 2/1. There is also a corresponding draw no bet market, removing the possibility of a tie (1-1 or 0-0).

When will the Series be Decided?


Bet365 go 2/5 that the series will be decided after match 2 (one team must be 2-0 ahead for this to win). The series to go to a decider is the outsider at 7/4, with New Zealand expected to put the series to bed after the second game. This market does offer some safety if the Lions cause a huge shock.

Match and Series Double


This Bet365 market involves the outcome of the first test and the series winner. New Zealand are 1/4 to win the first test and go on to win the series. There are 9 permutations here with some tasty odds on offer.

Top Team Tryscorer


This offers prices on who will score the most tries for their team over the series. Welsh winger George North is 7/2 favourite for the Lions whilst Julian Savea is 9/4 for the All Blacks. CJ Stander is Ireland’s biggest hope at 12/1.

Match Specials


Bet365 will have a range of specials over the series. One such one is which of the 4 home nations will have the most starters in the 1st test. England are 10/11 favourites to be most represented, with Wales 15/8. Coach Warren Gatland has a few headaches before the teams are announced.
