It’s Round 4 of the Six Nations, and we’ve got a tasty bet for you lined up on RUCK via Paddy Power!
We’ve lumped £15 on at 8/1 treble…and we’re already planning how to spend our winnings.
The £120 winnings might actually get us one round of drinks in when we’re in Dublin.
You could go either way on this – but we’ve picked Ireland with a -3 handicap at evens.
We were definitely tempted to take Wales at +3 but we’d be basing that solely on their home advantage.
The hosts, who have lost to England and Scotland thus far, failed to get a bonus-point score against Italy on the opening weekend and have massively underperformed.
We fully expect Joe Schmidt’s men to win and set up a championship decider in Dublin next weekend.
Make no mistake, Scotland are a much-improved side and deserve all the hype they’ve been getting.
Nevertheless, just as England have begun getting key players back, the Scots have lost a number of key players to injury, including captain Greig Laidlaw as well as fierce back-rowers John Hardie and Josh Strauss.
There’ll only be one score between the sides around the sixty-minute mark but England’s superior ‘finishers’ will overpower the spirited visitors in the latter stages.
This makes the -11 handicap at evens a very attractive punt.
The big question is ‘by how many’?
Their fitness, lack of squad depth and lack of confidence probably mean France will take maximum points from and overcome the -17 handicap.
