Bet on Toby Flood scoring plenty of points on Saturday

| 09.02.2011

Twickenham will be expectant on Saturday when England host Italy in the Six Nations, and Martin Johnson’s side will more than justify their 1/50 favouritism.

Despite their tight defeat against Ireland last weekend, Italy are a huge 10/1 to beat England and have conceded 28 tries in five Six Nations matches at Twickenham.

In the Six Nations Italy have been defeated at Twickenham by 57, 35, 32, 13, 25, which suggests that backing England at 10/11 with a 21 point handicap is a strong bet.

New customers to Ladbrokes.com who sign up here can get a free Six Nations bet worth £25, and this can be used on backing England to romp to success on Saturday.

It was the ninth game in succession that Toby Flood had started as England’s number 10 and the fly-half continues to grow in stature, producing an assured display that controlled England’s back line while kicking 13 of England’s points.

Flood will once again be instrumental on Saturday in a game where England’s star winger, Chris Ashton, will be hopeful of cementing his place at the top of the top tryscorer betting.

Ashton is 13/8 to be the top tournament tryscorer after his brace against Wales, and considering England average just under six tried a game against Italy at Twickenham, Ashton will be a strong bet to cross the line again.

England to win by 21-30 points is priced at 11/5, with 31-40 points available at 9/2.

It will be a struggle for Italy to control an England side high in confidence after their victory in Wales, and stopping Toby Flood scoring will be Italy’s only hope of a win.

A £25 stake on England winning by between 21-30 points would return £80. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
