Scotland’s campaign is threatening to go badly wrong unless they can snatch a win from the Irish, a 21/10 chance with bet365.
The problem is, Scotland failed badly at home to Wales last week and with Ireland pushing the French very close, you would have to fancy the Men In Green.
Looking at the way Ireland laboured in Italy and yet came very close against France, it’s perhaps fair to say that this game will also be a close affair.
Take Scotland then on the handicaps with a 6 point headstart at 10/11 (Ladbrokes). The Irish are 8/11 with Stan James to go into the break with the lead, which gives slightly more value than the 1/2 outright.
