Rugby Sevens Series: Men's Outright Odds for the Grand Final

The 2023/24 Rugby Sevens Series concludes with the Grand Final in Madrid.

It is the best of the best, with the upcoming leg running from Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June and featuring the top eight in the standings after the first seven legs.

Rugby Sevens Series Men's Outright Odds

Argentina

Argentina lead the standings but have not made the podium at any of the last three legs.

Their campaign was built on successive wins in Cape Town, Perth and Canada, but they have faltered since.

Like their 15s side, the Pumas' sevens team are built on solid foundations but have embraced a more attacking style in recent years.

Last year's series runners-up are the joint favourites to win in Madrid and seal their maiden world sevens title.

New Zealand

The form team, reigning champions New Zealand have won the last two tournaments in Hong Kong and Singapore and will be raring to go.

The All Blacks Sevens are two points behind fellow favourites Argentina and have demonstrated greater grit in their recent victories after being questioned early on in the series.

April's final victory over France in Hong Kong was by just three points, while they edged Ireland by the same margin in Singapore.

The record-14-time winners have raised their game when it matters and will be confident they can complete their comeback at the Metropolitano.

France

France enjoyed a good mid-season run, finishing third in Vancouver, winning in Los Angeles - their first tournament victory since 2005 - and taking the silver medal behind the Kiwis in Hong Kong.

They were off it in Singapore but have received a significant boost, with their country's 15s captain Antoine Dupont joining the squad fresh from skippering Toulouse to Champions Cup glory last Saturday.

Dupont excelled in their victory in LA and adds a real x-factor as he continues his initiation into sevens ahead of the Olympics.

Fiji

The perennial benchmark in the Sevens game, Fiji's star has waned in recent years, and they sit sixth in this year's standings.

The Flyers are still to make it to a final in 2023/24 but can call upon some real class with the return of two-time Olympic champion and World Rugby Men's Sevens Player of the Year 2019, Jerry Tuwai, of particular note.

Tuwai has not represented his country since May 2023, but new boss Osea Kolinisau has brought him back into the fold, and he will undoubtedly improve his team's hopes of going deep in Madrid.

Ireland

Like France with Dupont, Ireland will welcome a 15s star into their camp, with Hugo Keenan set to be part of their plans at the Metropolitano.

Leinster's Keenan was on the other end of last Saturday's Champions Cup result in London and will aim to make amends.

He could provide fireworks alongside the electric Terry Kennedy, who has scored a competition-leading 31 tries this season.

Ireland are second in the standings, but their results have been based on consistency, making the final only once - a semi-final is within their reach, but going further may prove problematic.

Australia

Australia sit fourth in the standings after reaching the semi-finals in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Runners-up in Cape Town and at home in Perth, Nick Malouf's team dropped off in the middle of the campaign but bounced back to finish fourth in Hong Kong and Singapore.

The Aussies are a good side but perhaps lack the real star power to get results against the big boys.

South Africa

South Africa started the season by winning in Dubai but have failed to make it to the semi-finals in the six tournaments since.

Their form has dropped off but their consistency - making the quarter-finals in the last two legs - makes them potentially awkward opponents.

Great Britain

Third place in Singapore saw Great Britain sneak into the top eight by a point ahead of the United States.

GB have struggled for consistency, not making it past the quarter-finals until producing a good run in Los Angeles, and their price reflects that they might turn out to be bit-part players in Spain.
