The Six Nations will kick off this weekend so with that in mind let’s take a look at the three games and come up with some Six Nations tips. Wales take on Italy at 2.15 on Saturday, followed by Ireland v Scotland at 4.45pm. England will then play France on Sunday at 3pm.
Let’s look at Wales v Italy first which kicks off the tournament. Wayne Pivac has quite a few injuries but will have the experience of Dan Biggar in his side. Wales have won the last five meetings between the sides by an average of 25 points. Based on that average I suggest backing Wales to win by 21-30 points at odds of 16/5. Another bet I would like is Alun Wyn Jones at 12/1 to get man of the match.
Looking at Ireland v Scotland . Andy Farrell has named a good side with Caelan Dorris set for his debut at number 8 and Johnny Sexton captaining the side. They will be expected to win comfortably. Scotland have just won once in their last 10 games in Dublin. In the last four games betting the sides Ireland have won on average by 17.5 points. Therefore backing Ireland at 13/5 to win by 11-20 points is the selection. CJ Stander at 12/1 is a great selection to pick up the man of the match award at 12/1.
France take on England on Sunday at the Stade de France. The odds are very close. I think will win but it will be tough for them. Last season’s top try scorer in the Six Nations Jonny May is 6/1 to grab the first try here. In terms of man of the match selections Sam Underhill looks a great beat at around 12/1. That completes our tips for the weekend Six Nations.
