Six Nations Betting Tips: Wins for Wales, England and Ireland?

Latest Six Nations odds
It’s crunch time in the Six Nations, as Wales, England and Ireland bid to keep their championship hopes alive.
Wales lead the way by two points, and are still on course for a Grand Slam. They’ve got the task of taking on Scotland at Murrayfield this weekend.
And Warren Gatland’s men can’t afford to slip up, with England hosting Italy on Saturday afternoon at Twickenham. Ireland must win in Paris to remain in the hunt on Sunday.
Scotland v Wales – Saturday, 2:15pm, BBC One
Wales have lost more times than they’ve won at Murrayfield, but in recent times they’ve enjoyed great success. They’ve won five of their last seven trips to Edinburgh, and have downed the Tartan Army in 15 of their last 17 meetings.
England v Italy – Saturday, 4:45pm, ITV
In 24 meetings with Italy, England have produced 24 wins. That explains much of the 1/100 price on offer for the Red Rose to win this weekend.
Italy are way out at 20/1, and could be on the receiving end of a backlash as Jones’ men recoup from defeat to Wales a fortnight ago.
And Gli Azzurri’s trips to West London are usually pretty bruising. Four of England’s last five wins over the Italians on home soil have come by 21 points or more. There’s 10/11 about the hosts on the -33 handicap, while 11/4 says Jones’ men claim the win by 21-30.
Ireland v France – Sunday, 3:00pm, ITV
Should one or both of Wales and/or England slip-up, Ireland could pounce at home to France.
France have proved inconsistent this year, capable of moments of brilliance and defensive capitulations in equal measure.
