Six Nations Betting Odds
February sees the return of the Six Nations and with 2011 being a World Cup year, all six teams will be looking to use the tournament as preparation for the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
England enter the Six Nations betting as favourites after an autumn campaign which saw Martin Johnson’s side beat Australia and Samoa, but lose to New Zealand and South Africa.
Considering England are 11/1 to win in the 2011 Rugby World Cup betting odds, Johnson’s side will want to put on a strong showing in this Six Nations betting market in order to enter the World Cup as the Northern Hemisphere’s strongest team.
French enter the Rugby World Cup odds behind England at 12/1 to win the Rugby World Cup, and the Australian thumping that they were handed at the end of November means they are second favourites in the Six Nations odds at 5/2.
France’s lack of tough autumn internationals may come back to haunt them but, as everyone knows, the French can’t be written off when it comes to major tournaments.
Ireland were off form during their autumn campaign and a narrow defeat to South Africa set the tone for their autumn.
But last year’s second placed team in the Six Nations are 3/1 to win the Six Nations in the Six Nations online betting.
Scotland were involved in the shock of the autumn series when defeating South Africa at Murrayfield and Andy Robinson’s side are 14/1 to win the Six Nations.
Wales are 5/1 after an autumn campaign that didn’t produce a win, but coach Warren Gatland was please with what he saw and Wales offer plenty of value in the Six Nations rugby betting odds.
Italy will target wins at home to Ireland and Wales and a win when they visit Murrayfield, but Nick Mallet’s side are very much the outsiders in the Six Nations rugby odds and are 200/1 to win the Six Nations.
