Wales Six Nations Betting Odds

| 10.12.2010

Two Grand Slams in the last six Six Nations tournaments has seen the Welsh rugby scene revived so it may be a surprise to some that they are as big as 6/1 in the 2011 Six Nations betting.

Under coach Warren Gatland, Wales have made huge strides and with 2011 being a Rugby World Cup year, the Six Nations sees extra significance added to it and new customers can take advantage of a free £25 bet by signing up here.

But a poor Autumn International campaign in which Wales failed to win a solitary game is the reason behind Wales Six Nations odds being so big.

However the results don’t reflect the performances and some of the rugby Wales showed to play their way back into the games against the Southern Hemisphere sides should stand them in good stead for this tournament.

Wales and England open the tournament on Friday 4th February in what is sure to be an explosive match and should Wales win on their home turf – they are undefeated in their last three home games with England – they will be one of the favourites for the title.

On the last two occasions Wales have beaten England in the first game, they have gone onto win the Grand Slam and 20/1 for Wales to win a Grand Slam is a huge price should they turn over England.

It’s 7/2 for Wales to win the Triple Crown and considering they play both Ireland and England at home, it looks the value of the Six Nations betting market although a resurgent Scotland may have something to say at Murrayfield.

Wales’ final match of the championships is in Paris in what could be a Grand Slam decider.

France will be the strong favourites to win that game and they are currently the 9/4 second favourites to win the Six Nations behind England (15/8).

A £25 stake on Wales winning the Six Nations would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
