Ireland V New Zealand Betting Preview

With Paddy Power offering odds of 4/6 on New Zealand winning all their matches in the Guinness Series, Ireland would appear to be up against it this weekend when they take on the All Blacks at Croke Park.

Brian O\’Driscoll is on course to pick up his 50th cap as captain of the Ireland side on Saturday. O\’Driscoll has form when it comes to rising to big occasions and is 20/1 with Paddy Power to score the first try.

Paddy Power said; \’I believe that the chances for both Ireland and Munster to beat the All Blacks is a little more likely than our odds of 45/1 suggest. Even as a bookmaker, nothing would make me happier than paying our on this historic double
