Wales get Six Nations campaign underway against underdogs Italy
Wales couldn’t ask for a more welcoming start to their Six Nations campaign as they take on Italy at the Millennium Stadium on February 1.
Wayne Pivac’s squad are heavy favorites and will likely push England all the way at odds of 6/1 at BoyleSports to win the entire competition.
Wales To Win Comfortably Against The Azzurri
Wales are huge favorites to beat Italy at 1/33 with Paddy Power. It’d be a huge shock if it was anything but a heavy win, with Italy’s odds of 14/1 certainly not worth much of a punt.
Head-to-head the Welsh have only lost twice against Italy in their history, the last time in 2007 and in recent years have been completely dominant, running out 26-15 winners in Italy during last year’s tournament.

Wales to win by 16-20 points at 6/1 with Paddy Power
Results usually sway largely in Wales’ favor and in front of a home crowd, that will most certainly be the case on Saturday.
The last time the pair met at the Millennium, the home side ran out 24 points better off than Italy, while in 2016 they won 67-14!
With it the first game of the tournament, we think the margin of victory could drop a touch, and fancy a 16-20 point win at 6/1 with Paddy Power. However, 26-30 may also be appealing at 13/2 to a number of punters.
You can back 21-25 points at 11/2 which is most favored with the bookie, while 31-35 is on 15/2.
Wales -22.5 to beat Italy at 5/6 with Coral
For those punters looking to play it a little safer but want to avoid the huge odds-on markets, a Wales -22.5 handicap with Coral could be worth your time.
It’s priced at 5/6 with the bookmaker and is the ideal Six Nations Acca builder alongside the other games this weekend.
The Welsh have been dominant at home against Italy and considering their World Cup performance it looks likely that a 23 point margin may even be a little conservative.
It’s going to be a big win for the Welsh and the perfect way to get their Six Nations campaign started.
