The Six Nations is just days away now so I have decided to look at the top betting markets ahead of the tournament.
Grand Slam Winner
The current suggest that at odds of evens their will be no winner of the Grand Slam in 2020. However, England are 13/8 to win the Grand Slam so not much really in it. If you fancy Ireland to win all five games in the competition they are 9/1 to do so. 2019 Championship winners Wales are 12/1 to win all games, France are 14/1, while Scotland who Ireland face in their first game are 100/1. Italy are a massive 500/1 to win all games in the tournament. No Grand Slam winner at 13/8 could be a good bet.
Top Try scorer
England’s Jonny May is the favourite to claim the top try scorer award. May finished top try scorer in the 2019 Six Nations and he is 7/2 to do so again here. Josh Adams of Wales is next at odds of 7/2. Adams finished top try scorer at the Rugby World Cup in Japan. Looking at some other players closer to home Jacob Stockdale is 9/1, while Garry Ringrose who has been in top form for Leinster this season is 25/1. Josh Adams at 7/2 would be the selection.
Top Point Scorer
This market mainly comes down to kickers of the teams. Owen Farrell was top point scorer in 2019 and he is favourite at odds of 11/8 to be again. Ireland’s Johnny Sexton won’t be too far behind him if he remains fit and he is 9/2. Wales fly-half Dan Biggar is 7/2. Finn Russell is also in the mix but he will miss the opening game of the tournament he is around 8/1. It is hard to look past Farrell at 11/8.
Player of the Tournament
This is quite tricky to call but several England players head the market. Maro Itoje is around 10/1 to win the award at 10/1. His fellow forwards Sam Underhill and Tom Curry are both 12/1. Josh Adams and Alun Wyn Jones are two Welsh players that head the market at 12 and 14/1 respectively. James Ryan is Ireland’s best hopeful at 20/1. However, some outside bets could be Stuart Hogg at 50/1, CJ Stander at 66/1 and George Kruis 100/1.
