First weekend of the 6 Nations drawing close. I've had a few bets so far:

Wales (-2) and (-3) @ 10/11 against Scotland. I backed this a few weeks ago when Sybet went up with -2 and then again on Wednesday (-3) when i saw the Scotland team. I just thought the line was wrong and Wales should have been stronger favorites.

I've had a small bet on France +4 @ 10/11 against Ireland too with Ladbrokes. Again, i think 4 points is bit too big a handicap to expect ireland to cover.


Other bets:

L Fitzgerald Top Irish Tryscorer @ 10/1 (1/4 1st 4) - ladbrokes
D Wallace Top Irish Tryscorer @ 28/1 (1/4 1st 4) - Ladbrokes
M Medard Top French Tryscorer @ 8/1 (1/4 1st 3) - Hills


Anyone else have anything interesting?

I'm going down the same road, Although I think in the first match, I think the Brits will have a tough time to over come -15 HC to Italy..

The welsh always have a tough time against the scottish in murrayfield. I think the Italians +15 is a good one, or even possibly Italy/England HT/FT.

Very true, Its been years since Wales has done anything decent in Murray field.
With Paddy power, Wales are 1-2 to win, yet the handicap is only 5..
I think thats a bit weird...

Can't see Italy scoring that much, although they love a close game and have a strong pack, they are hard to wear down and score against..

Best time of the year in my eyes...

Italy have no scrumhalf all three are injured and theyre having to play bergamasco a flanker at SH so i dont think they'll cover the handicap Engerland will have too much in the backs for them with Sackey and Cueto in great form, plus I dont think the strict refereeing of the the breakdown and contact areas will suit Italy's forward orientated game and can see them struggling to adapt and giving away a huge amount of Peno's

I think Wales -5 against is good value given the form they're in coming into these championships from the autumn internationals.

I could see England beating Italy but it'll be tight given the tactics Italy look to be employing, the English might have a job on their hands getting the ball back with the Italians constantly picking and driving.

And the Irish game is too much of a lottery to be betting on. Too many unanswered questions on both sides.

David Wallace to score a try versus France 5/1
Luke Fitzgerald to score first try versus France 11/1
Those are my two bets for today.

Have David Wallace to get first try in the France Ireland game.
18/1 @ Boyle.

Ireland should play a Munster style forwards game under Kidney and I fancy Wallace to force his way over.

Also have Chelski, Ireland, England, Liverpool accum @ just over 3/1, and an England/Ireland handicap double.
