Six Nations rugby betting just became extremely one-sided after England held firm and defeated France 17-9. The best odds available now for the Six Nations Outright winner are 17/100 at the betting exchanges, so basically betting is a foregone conclusion in this category.
Of more interest might be England's odds of capturing the Grand Slam this season. They are 4/6 to do this and the odds of No Grand Slam are 11/8. England are also 4/6 to win the Triple Crown.
If you're looking to make some easy money the best value in Rugby Union betting has to be the Six Nations to Finish Bottom market. Italy are 1/4 here and that is money for jam. Only Scotland could possibly challenge them for the wooden spoon and 1/4 looks like the wrong place since the Italians struggle to get out of their own way, as usual.
Local betting for the Aviva Premiership is, however, very intriguing indeed. Our value play here is to take the Saracens to win. 4/1 is freely available and they make more appeal than the rest who are all chasing Leicester, currently Evens with the bookies.
