Ireland have been faultless in this Six Nations campaign so far and are going to be crowned Six Nations champions this weekend barring a miracle performance from England and France winning well over Wales.
Looking at Ireland’s performances so far this campaign, they have won 34-10 in Wales, 32-19 at home to France, 34-20 away in Italy and last week disposed of Scotland 22-7 on the road.
This weekend Ireland entertain an England side who have just come off one of their worst results in Six Nations history in a 53-10 defeat at home to France.
Let’s now look at the game on Saturday between Ireland v England.
With match odds massively in favour of Ireland, there is little value in the outright odds of 1/7 Ireland (Matchook) 50/1 the draw with Boylesports and 7/1 England to win with Paddy Power.
The best way to look at the match on Saturday is looking at how many points that Ireland will win by. The home crowd will get right behind their team as Ireland look to secure the Six Nations in style.
Ireland have beaten Wales by 24 points, they beat France by 13 points, Italy by 20 points and Scotland by 15 points.
The Irish have been totally dominant in every game thus far in the Six Nations and we see no different as they entertain England.
|Ireland to win by 1-7 points||4/1|
|Ireland to win by 8-14 points||3/1|
|Ireland to win by 15 points or more||10/11|
Our Punters.pub best bet for Ireland v England is Ireland to win by 15+ points with Paddypower
For England, they can just be looking to play for pride this weekend and keep the scoring down. Although France were superb at Twickenham, England must do better in their play and it’s now obvious that it will take a lot of time for new Head Coach Steve Borthwick to get his ideas across to the team.
France want to end the Six Nations in style with a big win over Wales as they then turn their attention to the World Cup later this year.
After a supreme performance at Twickenham last week over England, confidence and flair was at an all time high for the French team who are huge favourites to get the job done on Saturday.
In looking for a bet to put up for Punters.pub we are going with a handicap line.
Our top bet for this match up is France to win on the handicap marketing (-19pts) with Bet365 at 10/11
The form is evident that this should be a one sided game with France putting up 53 points v England last week and scoring 32 points at home to Scotland, whereas Scotland were convincing winners over Wales, so this doesn’t bode well for the Welsh team heading over to France this weekend.
Even with an outside chance of winning the Six Nations, France will look to end this seasons tournament in style and we suspect they will be far too good for the Welsh.
