I thought I had found some value in the Six Nations Rugby which began last weekend Here’s what I wrote …
‘1.88 decimal odds favourites for outright winner ; 1.98 favourites for Triple Crown Winner ; Owen Farrell top points scorer at 2.14 ; 3.1 2nd favourite for Grand Slam Winner ( the favourite is NO Grand Slam winner) ; and 1.65 favourites away at France in the opener on the 2nd February 2020.
The odds are reasonably short in all instances to allow a lay of England , thus covering all other outcomes. All it takes is the potential of a sin bin or red card in one match and England could find themselves vulnerable.’
England has 1.88 decimal odds for outright winner stands now at 3.3.
England’s status as Triple Crown Winners at 1.98 last week will not have been impacted by a loss v France alas. Owen Farrell as top points scorer was 2.14 last weekend and stands at 3.7 odds this week. Jonny Sexton’s singular scoring for Ireland last weekend sees him strong favourite early on.
England as Grand Slam winner is of course dead in the water so a guaranteed return had you layed at 3.1.
And…1.65 favourites away to France was too short and another winning lay.
If you played, well done. The Tournament lays of course could swing in England’s favour but you are in a profitable ‘cash out’ position if you want to take it.
More to come….
