England Go Odds-on For Grand Slam Ahead of Wales Showdown
England are all the rage with punters to complete the Grand Slam as they prepare to go head-to-head with the only other team left in the Six Nations with a chance of doing it.
Both Wales and England have won their opening two Six Nations matches ahead of Saturday’s showdown at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, but it’s the visitors who enjoy 8/15 favouritism in their bid to make it three from three in the 4.45pm kick-off.
Wales are outsiders at 17/10 on their patch while a Grand Slam is rated a 15/2 for the Dragons.
England have now been backed into an odds-on 8/11 from Even money to pull of the feat they last achieved three years ago.
Leicester winger Jonny May is now also an odds-on shot at 4/6 to finish the tournament as top tryscorer having gone over four times already in England’s opening two fixtures.
Ireland are being backed to continue their recovery from their opening day defeat with a comfortable victory in Rome on Sunday, and the Boys in Green are even seeing support at 10/11 with a 29-point handicap.
Joe Schmidt’s men are out at 16/1 to win the tournament despite going off odds-on 8/11 favourites, while England’s opening price of 4/1 has now collapsed into 2/11.
