Scotland v Ireland
I like Scotland here,
I like Scotland here, I liked them last year and now that Ireland have lost, I like them even more. I believe Ireland just showed up last week and thought they would win.
This week is a different kettle of fish as they say, last year I backed Scotland at home in their two big games, v France and England, winning both.
This year I expect nothing less, I expect Scotland to win the tournament and after last week’s Ireland loss, I am even more confident.
Scotland have been working on their squad for a while now and I feel they have got it just about right.
This year’s price is somewhat lower than last year’s price v England, but I am still interested
Verdict: Scotland on the board at 22/10 for 3 units
Italy v Wales
I do not have a lot of confidence here, but I do like the look of the Italians, they were rubbish last week, but seriously they must have got a lot of confidence from scoring 17 points in the last 7 minutes v Scotland.
This week they play, what I can only describe as a lucky Welsh team, there is no doubt in my mind that Wales were absolutely no where last week and were dealt the best hand possible with their gift of a French blunder and an intercept try.
Anyway, as mentioned, not too much confidence, but a bet is on in any case, this will be all about price and I will keep the stakes low.
Verdict: Italy +10.5 at 18/10 for just 1 unit
England v France
I liked France last week, I had nothing for England, as it happened a few of my mates asked me what I thought, these thoughts were after filming the video and I suggested, one of two things would happen…either Ireland minus would arrive or the English would win on the board, I sadly went for the former and lost my dough.
This week I am absolutely astounded that the bookies have clearly brassed the French and have given us a cracking double digit plus.
I will be spending the same number of units as with Scotland, but I will be slightly conservative and go for the 9/10 line rather than a lower handicap.
I will possibly look to back France on the board if they get a price north of 7/1.
Verdict: France +12.5 for 3 units
