Best Six Nations Betting Matches: Ireland vs. France, Scotland vs. Wales, England vs. Italy

Best Six Nations Betting Matches: Ireland vs. France, Scotland vs. Wales, England vs. Italy

Rugby heats up this weekend as the Six Nations enters its second week of play.

In Round One, three fantastic games unfolded. Ireland established itself as the competition front-runner with a comprehensive away win over Wales. At the same time, England stumbled at the first hurdle dropping their opening game to Scotland in front of a home crowd. Italy was impressive with a tight loss against France, which gave a real scare in Rome.

Looking ahead to week two, we have a potentially title-defining match in Dublin, with the top two favorites, Ireland and France, going head-to-head. England will also look to keep their campaign alive against Italy, while Scotland will be eager to build on last week’s win against Wales. Here’s a rundown of all the best Rugby Betting we recommend taking ahead of these matches on the weekend.


Weekly Rugby Betting Rundown of the Top Games in Round Two | All Eyes on the Six Nations


Ireland vs. France

When: Saturday, 11 February
Where: Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland

Time: 9:15 AM EST
TV: NBC Sports


Round Two of the Six Nations kicks off with what could well be the match of the tournament.

Heading into the competition, many bookies had these two sides dead, even at outright odds. Ireland is No.1 in the world, while France is No.2 and defending champions. With Ireland looking the more convincing team last round, winning away against Wales by 24 points, and France looking somewhat shaky in their 5-point win over Italy, this game feels like one Ireland should win—particularly since they’re playing at home.

However, it will take some effort to halt France’s 13-match winning streak. Ireland is ahead in the odds at -256 vs. +170 and is the best bet to win here.


Scotland vs. Wales

When: Saturday, 11 February
Where: Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh, Scotland

Time: 11:45 AM EST
TV: NBC Sports


Following Ireland vs. France is another excellent match on Saturday, with a desperate Welsh side up against the confident Scots.

Scotland would have been targeting a minimum of two wins from their Six Nations campaign this year and have a real chance to achieve that within the first two weeks of the tournament here. Their win at Twickenham last weekend may well have marked a new age of Scottish rugby, with the side moving to a record-equally No.5 in the world rankings as well.

Expect Scotland to get the win here as well, but it will be no route. Wales will be up for this game, and we say this will go right down to the wire, with Scotland the best bet at -322 against Wales’ +206.


England vs. Italy

When: Sunday, 12 February
Where: Twickenham Stadium, London, England

Time: 10:00 AM EST
TV: NBC Sports


Was last week against France also a coming-of-age moment for Italy? This week will tell as they come up against an English side that will be hurting from their loss to Scotland.

Surely England can’t lose to the perennial wooden spooners of the Six Nations, and at home as well. Stranger things have happened, but with odds of -5000 compared to +774, it could be worth throwing a bet on Italy’s way. It’s unlikely, but these are the best odds to be on for the weekend’s rugby.
