Betting Odds For The Other Six Nations Teams
The second favourites to win this year’s Six Nations are France at odds of 6/4. These odds suggest that our oddsmakers rate France just behind Ireland in terms of team quality.
Next in the betting for the 2023 Six Nations is England at odds of 9/2. These odds are a pretty big drop from France and Ireland which means that punters who back England could be rewarded handsomely if they are to capture this year’s title.
The side rated as fourth most likely to win this year’s Six Nations according to the betting market is Wales at massive odds of 16/1 to win this year’s tournament. Welsh rugby is in a down period right now and the big odds are indicative of just that.
Scotland have been installed at odds of 20/1 to win their first ever Six Nations championship. The Scots do however have titles from the Five Nations era of this tournament.
Italy are 1000/1 to win the Six Nations in 2023. Long odds for a very unlikely winner.

Key Ireland Players to Watch In The Six Nations
Josh van der Flier
The 2022 World Rugby Player of the Year is an absolute class act who will be crucial to Ireland’s success in this upcoming Six Nations. The Leinster man plays flanker for Ireland but he is a versatile player who can be moved to other spots among the forwards if needed.
Van der Flier is not only a great ball carrier but he does a lot of the off the ball unseen work which makes him so valuable to this Irish team.
Sexton was also in the running for the 2022 World Rugby Player of the Year, an award he won back in 2018. For the past decade the Leinster fly-half has been the talisman who pulls the strings on the pitch for his country.
Sexton is an all-round 10 and it is difficult to find weaknesses in his game. If Sexton plays well then Ireland are almost an impossible team to beat.
Tadhg Furlong is an absolute mountain of a man. The Wexford man is widely considered the best tighthead prop in the world.
Furlong does everything that a tighthead prop is traditionally asked to do brilliantly while he also has the footwork of a back with the ball in his hands.
