Six Nations Betting Odds Comparison

The Six Nations Championship gives the best rugby union sides in the northern hemisphere the chance to compete each year against one another in the hope of being crowned champions. With England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy all involved, there are always some massive matches and no shortage of excitement. Here we bring you an overview of this famous and fantastic rugby tournament, along with the latest live rugby betting odds.

The Six Nations Championship has a long an illustrious history, though most of that has come from its predecessor tournaments, the Five Nations Championship and the Home Nations Championship. The Home Nations Championship – in which England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland competed – took place between 1883 and 1909, after which France were added. The tournament returned to the original four teams from 1931 to 1947, when France re-joined, to be joined from 2000 onwards by Italy to give us the current line-up.

Since there have been six countries represented in the tournament, England and Wales have each become champions on four occasions, France have bagged five triumphs, and Ireland have been triumphant twice. For the relative minnows of Scotland and Italy it is usually all about trying to avoid the wooden spoon, with one or other having finished bottom of the table on 13 occasions (prior to the 2015 tournament).

As well as the main championship, there are a number of other trophies that are fought for during the Six Nations. The main additional trophy is the Triple Crown, which is awarded to any of the original home nations – England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland – who manage to beat the other three. Other trophies include the Calcutta Cup, which is awarded to the winner of the match between England and Scotland, and the Centenary Quaich, which is given to the winner of the match between Scotland and Ireland.

A team completes the Grand Slam if they manage to win all five of their Six Nations matches, a feat that has been achieved by France and Wales thrice and England and Ireland once each since the expansion to the current format.

When betting on the Six Nations there are plenty of markets to choose from. You can bet on individual matches during the tournament, with a range of markets available including the match odds, handicaps, half time/full time and first tryscorer. You can also bet on which side will win the Six Nations itself, or which team (if any) will complete the Grand Slam or the Triple Crown. If placing pre-tournament bets, it’s always a good idea to analyse the teams’ performances from the Autumn Internationals that take place a few months before the Six Nations to get a good idea about which sides are likely to do well.
