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.
