Six Nations Betting Preview

Our friends at Paddy Power have sent us over their Six Nations betting preview, and some of their odds look fairly interesting.

France are their favourites to win the title, which is probably fair enough given their home advantage against Ireland, and I do fancy them to lift the trophy in Paris on March 20th.

However, odds of 6/4 don’t offer much value, so I’m tempted to take them at 4/1 for the Grand Slam, which would leave me in a difficult situation come March 20th if they are still unbeaten when they take on England!

It’s also interesting that Scotland are 20/1 to win the Six Nations, but at 25/1 just to win the triple crown.

An England Grand Slam at 14/1 might also be worth a tenner – if they beat Wales this weekend, you just never know!
