When it comes to the 6 Nations outright betting odds, England are trading as joint-second favourites alongside Ireland, with France many people’s Six Nations betting tip and an opener against Italy should mean a facile victory for Les Bleus. However, much depends on whether Eddie Jones’ side can overcome tricky opponents north of the border.

England Bidding to Reclaim Six Nations Crown

England were the Six Nations champions in 2020 and that happened to be their third win in the space of five seasons, with the Red Rose finishing in a disappointing fifth place a year later and the team were only able to win two of their five games played. We can expect a squad improvement this time around and the team will be out for revenge at Murrayfield.

After all, the English were beaten 11-6 at Twickenham twelve months ago, with the Scots putting up a formidable defence which meant that their opponents were unable to score a single try in difficult conditions. England then struggled defensively when losing 40-24 against Wales further down the line and they then lost 32-18 against Ireland.

Some punters will be placing Six Nations bets against England due to the fact that they are missing the highly influential Owen Farrell. The visitors are odds on when you look at the Scotland v England Six Nations betting odds, although we could get down to the final moments of the match with the tie in the balance.

Are Scotland a Good Six Nations Bet to Beat England?

Scotland will benefit from a vociferous and partisan home crowd at Murrayfield, with Gregor Townsend having done an excellent job with this rugby union team and the Scots are no longer regarded as whipping boys when it comes to the Six Nations, with the rugby union bookmakers actually considering them as a better shout than a Wales side who were champions last term.

If the Scots could secure a win against the Auld Enemy, it would really have their tails up for the remainder of the campaign and you can back them at odds-against to win this match. There is scope to even get them with a two or three point start at around the even money mark and that could be advantageous if it’s a close match.

There are some exciting Scotland players within the camp and it’s worth noting that a lot of the Scottish players come from Edinburgh and Glasgow, with the two teams sitting top of the United Rugby Championship.

What Are the Best Scotland v England 6 Nations Bets?

We think that this could be a tight match and the best of our Six Nations betting tips is to look to back under the points line. The rugby union betting sites won’t release this market until closer to kick-off considering that it’s very much dependent on the weather that is anticipated but we can see this being a cagey encounter.

This is a match where both sides will be desperate for victory and there will be a lot of thought given to making sure that the game is kept tight in the early stages. We could see a lot of frantic action and mistakes that could happen, although the previous Six Nations clash rewarded punters who backed a low-scoring clash.

We think Scotland on the rugby union match betting odds could be worth a dabble. They have the confidence of that Twickenham win and can now count on home advantage. Perhaps they will have the edge once again.
