Six Nations 2020 Round 5 Betting Tips

Alongside Ireland vs Italy last weekend, both Italy vs England and France vs Ireland have been postponed, with it believed to be replayed in the Autumn.

Delay to a Six Nations hanging in the balance
Both France, Ireland, and England will have to wait until October, it is thought, to decide who is crowned the Six Nations 2020 winner.
Both sides are on 13 points, although England face the much easier tie as they take on Italy in Rome.
Paddy Power is now placing them huge favourites at 1/4, with Ireland moving into the second favourite at 4/1.
France has moved to 10/1 following defeat to Scotland, with it essentially now Eddie Jones’ side to lose.
Wales to finish strongly against Scotland
Of the two teams who will finish their Six Nations campaigns on Saturday, we expect Wales to triumph over Scotland in front of a bumper crowd at the Millennium Stadium.
The last two meetings have gone to the Welsh by under 10 points so we’d back the Wales win by 1-12 margin at 6/4 with Paddy Power.
It will be a good contest though, with the Scots impressing last week and could prove dark horses at 5/2 to win the game.
Wales have a lot of talent in their squad though and a solid performance against England for Justin Tipuric makes him the one to watch and a good punt on anytime tryscorer.
It’s going to be a strange ‘final’ weekend of the Six Nations but despite the postponements one that still provides plenty of betting opportunity.
