Six Nations fans are in for a treat when England host Ireland at Twickenham, with some rugby betting sites prepared to chalk up 5/4 that the home side claim a victory. Despite being cheered on by thousands of fans, the bookies aren’t hugely convinced that they will claim a third consecutive victory in this competition.

England had genuine cause for grievance when losing at Murrayfield, with the Red Rose then enjoying a 33-0 victory over Italy before that nervy clash against a Wales side where the visitors were able to come storming back and they were only four points worse off after the final whistle.

Ireland Slight Favourites to Win Six Nations Clash at Twickenham

The leading Six Nations betting sites had Ireland as joint-favourites to win the 2022 Championship and they began in impressive fashion when winning 29-7 against Wales at the Aviva Stadium. However, Andy Farrell’s side then went to Paris where they were unable to edge a tight clash against France.

The telling fact about the clash in the French capital is that Ireland were able to score three tries at the Stade de France and there was then a 57-6 win over the Azzurri which was fairly comfortable and will potentially mean they are fresher for this clash to determine the Six Nations Championship runner-up.

Ireland Could Be a Good Rugby Handicap Six Nations Bet

One can’t help but feel that Ireland are capable of a substantial victory against England at Twickenham and it could be worth looking beyond the match result betting market. For example, you are able to back the visitors -2.5 at betting odds of 10/11 which means that Ireland would need to win by three points or more.

Should you want an even juicier price, then Ireland -4.5 points is available at 11/10 and it all comes down to how much you want to change the line in order to try and leverage a winning rugby bet.

Consider Total Points Betting Market in 6 Nations Clash

While the England v Ireland Total Points betting market is not going to be priced up until nearer to kick-off, it’s sometimes worth looking beyond the actual outcome of a game and alternatively wager on how many points will be scored during the eighty minutes.

You can bet Over/Under the number of points and our recommendation would be to look for an unders bet considering that Eddie Jones will want to nullify a team capable of scoring tries in volume. We think that this two-way market could be a good way of playing this match.
