Six Nations Betting Odds Comparison Preview for March 18th

Six Nations Betting Odds Comparison Preview for March 18th

eddie jones’ england steamrolled their way to the 2017 rbs six nations title last weekend with a stunning 61-21 victory over vern cotter’s scotland. after winning the grand slam last year, the english will be looking to do the same again, beating new zealand’s record of 18 consecutive test match victories in the process.

this saturday, jones and co. head to the aviva stadium in dublin to face joe schmidt’s ireland, who still have their eyes firmly set on second place. also, italy travel to edinburgh to play scotland, whilst france and wales square off at the stade de france, paris.

with our 2017 rbs six nations live odds comparison, tips and predictions, we’ll be previewing all three matches, as the curtain closes on another memorable six nations tournament.

scotland v italy: big win for the scots

vern cotter’s scotland and conor o’shea’s italy get the last round of fixtures underway, as the pair meet at murrayfield stadium on saturday afternoon. the scots are the overwhelming favourites to see off the italians, who have not taken a single point all tournament.

cotter’s scotland will have been very disappointed with their showing at twickenham last week. although the scots have ultimately had a tournament to remember, as they have beaten the irish and the welsh, last week’s 61-21 defeat to england brought them back down to earth with an almighty bang.

nevertheless, with second spot still up for grabs, scotland will be looking for a strong end to their 2017 six nations. the best odds you can get on a home win are just 1/20 with sky bet, whilst an italy victory is available at the big price of 12/1 with betvictor. meanwhile, you can get the draw at 66/1 (betfair).

we’re predicting a comfortable afternoon for the scots. looking at our live odds comparison, cotter’s boys to win -30 is available at the best odds of 13/8 with coral, a price we feel is worth taking advantage of.

france v wales: narrow triumph for les bleus

rob howley’s wales make the trip to the stade de france in paris to take on guy noves’ unpredictable france. the welsh will be buoyed by their stunning 22-9 victory over ireland, a result they will be looking to build on in france. the french, meanwhile, have seen off scotland and italy, and will also be looking for a strong end to their six nations.

this is a game that could go either way, and that’s backed up by the bookies’ odds. there’s not a lot to split these two, with bet365 making the hosts the slight 8/13 favourites. as for wales, they are available at the tempting price of 6/4 with william hill, whilst the draw is priced at betting odds of 25/1 with betfred.

it’s been a pretty strange tournament for both, with the pair suffering poor losses, but also sealing excellent wins. with just one point separating these in the six nations table, both will be going all out for the win, especially as second placed ireland play england.

however, we believe home advantage could be the deciding factor. the french earned a strong 22-16 win over the scots in their only game at the stade de france in the competition, and we like the look of bet365’s 8/13 for noves’ boys to end their tournament with a hard-fought victory over wales on home turf.

ireland v england: english to go out in style

the final six nations game of the tournament is arguably the biggest, as competition winners england look to go through the card when they take on joe schmidt’s ireland in dublin on saturday. despite being on the road, jones’ men are the strong favourites to leave the aviva stadium with another win, a test match winning record and the grand slam.

it’s been another fantastic tournament for the english, who just keep getting better and better. england are still unbeaten under jones, and ireland will have to go some to try to and end that this weekend. the tournament winners head to dublin as the 4/6 favourites with bet365. looking at the odds comparison, the best price you can get for an ireland win are 13/8 with betway, with the unlikely draw coming in at 25/1 with betfred.

after scoring an outstanding 137 points, sealing 16 tries along the way, it’s hard to see past an england win, especially with the winning record up for grabs. of course, the irish will be doing everything in their power to halt the english, but they really have looked unstoppable so far.

we fancy the away side to storm to another six nations victory, with betfred offering the tempting price of 11/4 for england to win -12 at the aviva stadium on saturday.
