With the autumn internationals now just a fortnight away, England dominate the betting for next year’s RBS 6 Nations Championship as they bid for a hat-trick of titles, with Eddie Jones’ side a best price of 4/5 with Betfred to retain their title.
England may not have achieved a Grand Slam this year, as they did in 2016, with their defeat in the final round in Ireland ending their 18-match winning streak, but their two summer victories in Argentina have kept them moving in the right direction and they remain very much the team to beat.
Ireland, who have finished third and second since winning back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015, are second favourites at 7/2 with William Hill. The Irish have beaten New Zealand, Australia and England in the last 12 months and look best placed to capitalise should England slip up.
Wales can be backed at best odds of 9/1 and France at 12/1 in the outright betting with Stan James – who offer Scotland at 20/1 and Italy at 1500/1.
