Irish Eyes To Smile Again

RUGBY UNION BETTING: The Six Nations gets under way this weekend and it’s the French that head the betting at 13/8 with Stan James. Ireland come next at 5/2 with Victor Chandler.

England and Wales are 5/1 apiece with Betdaq and Paddy Power respectively, while Scotland (20/1, Partybets) and Italy (250/1, 888Sport) are given little chance of success.

With a better team, on paper, than last year, it’s defending champions Ireland that look the best bet but they are unlikely to land the Grand Slam given that they have tricky trips to Twickenham and Paris to contend with. Jaxx.com’s 4/6 for there to be no Grand Slam winner therefore appeals but Declan Kidney’s men are nevertheless a decent bet at 2/1 with Ladbrokes to scoop the Triple Crown.

At the other end of the table, Italy are as good as a certainty in many peoples eyes at 1/2 (Totesport) to again land the wooden spoon but they do play Scotland at home and Paddy Power‘s 11/4 for Andy Robinson’s side to finish bottom could be the value bet of the tournament.

In this weekend’s fixtures; Ireland can overhaul a 20-point start (10/11, bet365) as they host Italy, Wales are slightly overpriced at 6/5 with William Hill to see off England and France, at 10/11 (Betfred), can claw back a seven-point handicap start at Murrayfield as they tackle Scotland.
