Rugby on the rise: Six Nations betting frenzy ahead of this weekend's action

Rugby on the rise: Six Nations betting frenzy ahead of this weekend's action

Punters are enjoying the action in this year's tournament.

The Six Nations is attracting plenty of punting activity this year, with 26% more bets on Six Nations matches than there were at this time last year.

Wales v England is unsurprisingly the match that is grabbing punters’ attention this weekend, with five times more bets going on this game than the next most backed, France v Scotland.

The clash in Cardiff is looking very even with the punters, despite the away side being odds-on favourites (27/50) with the bookies. Wales have attracted 43.5% of bets, while England is edging it with 47%, with the rest backing an unlikely draw.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: "Saturday's match is the kind that makes the Six Nations so special. Both sides unbeaten in this tournament but England looking the most convincing, it's a mouthwatering encounter on paper and has certainly caught the eye of punters ahead of the weekend.

"England are as short as 4/6 to win the Grand Slam, having already swept aside France and Ireland. Even that price will look big should they do the same on Saturday."
