France named 7/4 favourites to win the Six Nations

The RBS Six Nations gets underway next month with France the clear favourites to take out the title for the second time in three years. 

Bet on the RBS Six Nations at Bet365. Watch all the action with every Six Nations game being shown live on the BBC.

World Cup runners-up Les Bleus last picked up this coveted trophy in 2010 when they won the Grand Slam by beating every opponent put in front of them. 

For the 2012 campaign Philippe Saint-André‘s men can be backed as the odds-on favourites at 7/4 with Bet365, while the French can also be tipped at 4/1 to win the Grand Slam once more with BetFred.

Warren Gatland’s Wales side are next in line after a very good showing in the 2011 World Cup - where they lost in the semi-finals against France.

Many followers believe that Wales could have reached the World Cup Final if captain Sam Warbuton had not been sent off in the first half of a very close semi-final, and on that evidence they are a decent bet at 5/2.

English rugby is in a bit of trouble and they do not even have a full-time coach in place for the Six Nations. Stuart Lancaster is the interim coach at the moment and he has five matches to impress.

He has named a young and inexperienced squad with nine uncapped players included and they are third favourites to retain the title they won under Martin Johnson in 2010. They can be backed at 11/4 with Bet365.

Ireland are fourth favourites at 6/1, but that could be a decent flutter as well because they always seem to up their game against the likes of England and France and they could do well.

Two teams not expected to win many games in the Six Nations are Scotland and Italy and they can be backed at 18/1 and 125/1 respectively.

France may fancy their chances of taking out the Grand Slam once more, but you can get odds of 4/6 odds-on that no team manages it this year, while Wales are available at 7/1 with Lancaster’s England next in line at 15/2 with BetFred.
