40/1 888sport Japan Offer

888sport 40/1 Japan Rugby Offer

We think the 40/1 offer is better but, as said, you can opt for 6/1 on SA instead if you prefer. The best normal odds on Japan are 11/2 (Ladbrokes) and for South Africa they are just 1/5 with 888sport themselves. That clearly shows what amazing value the 40/1 or 6/1 offer gives you, especially as the maximum bet is £5, not just a quid as at most other betting sites.

Whichever you prefer, claiming this huge price boost is easy and the same steps apply …

  • Promo open to new customers aged 18 and over
  • Visit 888 from this page and deposit £10 or more with 40/1 code 888ODDS
  • Bet £5 on Japan at the normal odds (or South Africa)
  • If you win you get paid cash for your stake and the odds when you placed the bets
  • Free bets then take your winnings to 40/1 (or 6/1 for SA)
  • The free bets are added within 72 hours, they expire after 7 days and they are stake not returned free bets
  • Offer available for a limited time on named teams and match only
  • Full Ts and Cs are available at 888sport

Can Japan Win?

There are many reasons why Japan can indeed win. Clearly, at the best non-enhanced odds of 11/2 they are outsiders. But perhaps not as big outsiders as you might think. Those odds mean the bookies reckon they have about an 18% chance of winning.

That’s almost a one in five chance, so it isn’t as if they are considered no-hopers. With big odds of 40/1 and the chance to land a £200 win (in free bets and cash), we certainly think they are worth a shot.

Home Advantage

Don’t underestimate playing at home. Japan is a patriotic country that knows how to get behind their team. Everyone in the country will be behind them, especially given the typhoon, which will have further galvanised this passionate country where honour and pride mean everything.

South Africa Bottlers?

In a number of sports including cricket, football and rugby, South Africa have come to have the reputation that nobody wants in sport, that of being bottlers. True or not, there is no doubting the fact that the stats and history show that they don’t always bring their best to the biggest occasion.

Japan are pretty Good!

Japan are no mugs. They topped their group, won four out of four, beat Ireland and, when it really mattered and the pressure was on, brushed aside Scotland. Coming into the game they are ranked sixth in the world, only two places and a few ranking points behind South Africa. Now, that might not exactly be a fair reflection but it certainly suggest the Springboks are very short at just 1/5.

So, if you believe in fairytales and think Japan can keep their World Cup dream alive, claim this 40/1 offer and back them to beat South Africa!
