    2018 Six Nations Betting Preview: England And Ireland To Finish Top Of The Pile Again

    The 2018 Six Nations gets underway this weekend and England will be looking to get off to a winning start in Italy as the two-time defending champions bids to become the first team to win three successive Six Nations titles...

    Tips Straight Forecast: England-Ireland    Best Bet @ 2 / 1  
    Stuart Hogg Top Tryscorer (each way) @ 20 / 1  

    England

    Eddie Jones's men were denied a Grand Slam by defeat to Ireland in Dublin last year and that remains the only blemish on the Australian's CV as Head Coach, with England winning 22 of his 23 games in charge.

    It is no surprise to see that England are even-money favourites (Paddy Power) despite the absence of the injured Billy Vunipola and Elliot Daly, as well as the suspended Joe Marler, and they will take some stopping.

    Ireland

    Ireland, the 2014 and 2015 Six Nations champions, are 15/8 second-favourites and they head into the tournament in fine form after winning their past seven matches in a row. Joe Schmidt's men are always dangerous but their match with England this year is at Twickenham, where they have lost their past four visits.

    With that in mind, the straight forecast of England-Ireland to finish in the top-two in that order looks like the best bet at 2/1 (Betfred).

    Scotland

    A resurgent Scotland team are a tempting 11/1 after they beat Ireland, Wales and Italy last year. Gregor Townsend's side picked up some notable results during the autumn too but they must travel to Wales and Ireland this year as they bid to win the Six Nations for the first time since 1999.

    Stuart Hogg is likely to be a stand-out performer after being named 'Player Of The Tournament' at each of the past two Six Nations and the man who has scored six tries in his past eight appearances for his country is 20/1 to be top tryscorer this year (PaddyPower.com).

    The Rest

    Warren Gatland reckons Wales are favourites this year but injury issues, as well as the fact that they have to travel to both England and Ireland, ensures they are 20/1 for a reason.

    France are also 20/1 as they start life under new management, while Italy are a massive 500/1 and firm favourites for the wooden spoon.
