England are now a best price of just 2/9* with Bet365 to win the 6 Nations after blitzing France at Twickenham on Sunday.
Jonny May scored a hat-trick of tries in the left corner inside the first half hour to set England on their way to a 44-8 victory, which was good enough to earn them a bonus point and leave them 2 points clear of Wales at the top of the table.
Wales have emerged as England’s strongest challengers after winning their first two matches, but their 26-15 victory over Italy at the Stadio Olimpico was a scrappy affair.
It was, however, a record-equalling 11th consecutive win for Warren Gatland’s side and sets them up nicely for their home game against England in a fortnight’s time. Paddy Power are offering best odds of 11/2* about Wales going on to win the championship.
Defending champions Ireland got back to winning ways with a 22-13 defeat of Scotland at Murrayfield, but they are out to a best price of 11/1* with Coral to win the title again. England, meanwhile, are Evens* at Bet365 to complete a Grand Slam.
