England’s Six Nations Betting Odds

Posted on | February 18, 2016 | No Comments

England’s Six Nations Betting OddsThere probably isn’t a more popular annual international rugby competition than the Six Nations Championship. As you probably know, the Six Nations is a successor of the previous Home Nation Championship that was held between the then 4 Nations of the United Kingdom- England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. France was later introduced and the competition was then named Five Nations and then when Italy joined the name changed to Six Nations Championship as we know it today. It is informally known as the European Rugby Championship, since pretty much every European nation that plays rugby participates in it.

The European Rugby Championship has began

Ireland are the current title’s holders, as they won the 2015 tournaments, even though they had an equal number of points as England and Wales. The current Six Nations Championship began on the sixth of February and two rounds have already been played. On the first day of the tournament France beat Italy 23-21 and England beat Scotland 15-9, despite the fact that the Scots had the home advantage. On the next day Ireland and Wales settled for a draw at 16 each at Aviva Stadium in Ireland. In the second round France managed to secure a 10-9 win against Ireland, Wales beat Scotland 27-23, whereas England won away against Italy by an amazing 31 margin. 9 -40 was the final score. Now, the third round is ahead of us and England will meet Ireland at Twickenham Stadium, whereas Wales will play against France, and in the match between the two teams that have never won the Championship, Scotland will play against Italy.

England are Favourites

Due to their form and reputation before the start of the Championship, but also due to their form in the two rounds that have already been played, it can safely be said that England are the first favourites. Bookmakers, based on the odds that they offer, predict that England will win the Six Nations Championship and deny the Irish two titles in a row. The odds for England to win are set at 4/5 at most bookmakers, but you can also find odds at 10/11, 11/13, 8/11 and 5/6. The odds are way lower compared to all the other nations. Only Wales comes close with odds at or around 2.

More Odds for England

A bet that England will get the Grand Slam will allow you to earn around three times more than the amount you have wagered, as the odds are at 4/7, 8/15 and 1/2 at most bookmakers. If you wish to bet that England will get a Triple Crown you will get odds at 11/10. For the following match with Ireland, the odds for England to win are set at 2/4, 2/5, 4/11, whereas the odds for a draw vary from 16 to 22. If you like to play England with a -6 handicap you will get odds 10/11 and 6/4 odds if you play England with a -10.5 handicap.
