Six Nations Betting Odds Comparison

2019 Six Nations Championship – Round One Odds Comparison

France v Wales – Wales to Win

France and Wales kick off the 2019 tournament in Paris, with the hosts aiming to improve on poor results a year ago. They finished fourth in the standings after losing three of their five matches. That’s not ideal form to take into the competition, while their Autumn Internationals results were far from impressive. The French have lost six of their last seven matches, dating back to their defeat to Wales in the final clash of last year’s Six Nations.

Meanwhile, the visitors are in fine form as they approach the World Cup. They managed to finish up second a year ago, although they did finish 11 points shy of the Irish after their Grand Slam. However, they have been in fantastic form lately, winning their last nine internationals.

Impressive away wins against Argentina and South Africa have set them up for this game, as they look to continue a great record against the French. Wales have won six of the last seven meetings between these two, yet our odds comparison shows you can back them at best betting of evens ahead of this clash.

Scotland v Italy – Scotland -25 Point Handicap

Scotland had a solid Six Nations campaign in 2018, wrapping up with three wins to finish in third. Seeing off England and France were among the highlights of their tournament, while they pulled off a narrow win in their trip to Italy. However, they’ll be aiming for a much bigger margin as they kick things off against the same opponents at Murrayfield this weekend.

This hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Italians, who have lost heavily in their last two visits. They’ve scored just seven points combined across their previous two trips here, conceding nearly 80 in return. The visitors finished bottom last year, with a points difference of -111. We expect them to suffer an early heavy defeat. We’re backing the Scottish with a -25 point handicap, which is priced at 10/11 with our best betting odds.

Ireland v England – Ireland Winning Margin 1-10 Points

The Irish kick off their title defence in Dublin, following a fantastic campaign 12 months ago. They completed the Grand Slam, finished up clear of all of the rest of the sides and managed to score four or more tries on three occasions. They were completely dominant, and their autumn victory over New Zealand marked them out as the best side in the world right now. It’s no surprise that the Irish are odds-on to win the Six Nations once again, and they’re also heavy favourites to start with a victory.

The visitors had a strong Autumn Internationals campaign, but only after a five-game losing streak early on in the year. They head to Dublin with plenty of pressure on boss Eddie Jones, as they expect big things at the World Cup later this year. Despite that, it’s hard to see them getting anything from this trip.

The Irish are on a roll, winning 18 of their last 19 matches. They’ve got a good record over England in Dublin of late, but their wins have been narrow in recent years. With that in mind, we think that the Irish will edge this encounter, but not run away with it. That has us backing them to land a winning margin between one and 10 points, which our odds comparison shows at 23/10.

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.

Whatever you choose to bet on, we’ll have all the latest live betting odds right here to help you get the best prices every time.
