Six Nations 2019: Pre-Tournament Odds

The greatest event in Rugby Union gets underway on the 1st February as the Six Nations returns. The squads have now been announced and we've looked at the betting ahead of the tournament, providing you outright odds and also looking at the top tryscorer and player of the tournament odds.

Ireland favourites to retain title

After winning the Grand Slam last year, it is no surprise to see Ireland as the bookmakers favourites to win the Six Nations for a second successive year. After losing just one match in the entire of 2018 and rounding off the year with a stunning 16-9 win over the All Blacks, much is expected of them at the World Cup in Japan later this year where they are heavily fancied, but they must first continue to impress in the Six Nations.

Their win over New Zealand was a first ever against them on home soil and sent a clear message that they are one of the best around in international rugby right now. They begin their campaign against England in Dublin, with that being one of only two home matches this year for them (France are the other visitors). The Irish will fear nobody and are best priced at 5/6 to win the tournament with Betfair, whilst you get get them at 7/4 with Sky Bet to win the Triple Crown and 9/4 with BetVictor to win the Grand Slam.

England are the second favourites and will be hoping for a much better campaign this time around. Eddie Jones' men finished way down in fifth last year after winning just two of their five matches and lost the Calcutta Cup for the first time since 2008. They also suffered a 2-1 series defeat to South Africa in the summer, but there were signs of improvement in the Autumn Internationals with wins over the Springboks and Australia either side of a narrow late defeat to New Zealand.

They will want to put things right after last seasons dismal title defence, and Jones has named four uncapped players as he looks to freshen things up. The loss of Dylan Hartley with a knee injury could be big though whilst stand-in captain Owen Farrell is also facing a face to be fit for their opener against Ireland after missing Saracens' European Champions Cup win over Glasgow with a thumb injury. You can get England best priced at 7/2 with Unibet to win the Six Nations, with the Triple Crown 7/1 with Sky Bet and Grand Slam at 9/1 with Paddy Power.

Wales meanwhile sit just behind England at 5/1 to win the tournament with Sky Bet, whilst Scotland and France are best priced at 16/1 (Unibet) and 20/1 (Betfair) respectively. As ever the bookmakers give little hope to Italy, with them way out at 1000/1 with most due to their lack of quality.

Top Tryscorer

Ireland's Jacob Stockdale is the bookmakers favourite to be the tournaments top tryscorer. The 22-year-old ran away with it last year, scoring seven tries which was three more than anyone else in the competition - Jonny May and Matteo Minozzi were joint second with four. Stockdale is best priced at 9/2 to be the top tryscorer for a second successive year with Unibet. May is the second favourite at 7/1 with Sky Bet whilst Ireland's Keith Earls (10/1), England's Chris Ashton (12/1) and Welshman George North (14/1) are all just behind in the market.

Odds (with Unibet):

  • Jacob Stockdale - 9/2
  • Jonny May - 7/1
  • Keith Earls - 8/1
  • Chris Ashton - 12/1
  • George North - 14/1
  • Liam Williams - 14/1
  • Tommy Seymour - 16/1
  • Joe Cokanasiga - 16/1
  • Stuart Hogg - 18/1

Player of the Tournament

There is a clear favourite with bookmakers for the Player of the Tournament award, with Jonathan Sexton currently the 5/1 favourite with Betfair. His fellow Irishman Connor Murray is second favourite at 10/1 with the sam bookmaker, whilst you can get England's Owen Farrell at 12/1 with Paddy Power. Last years winner was Stockdale and he is 16/1 to claim the award again, also with Paddy Power.

Odds (with Betfair):

  • Jonathan Sexton - 5/1
  • Conor Murray - 10/1
  • Owen Farrell - 12/1
  • Tadhg Furlong - 14/1
  • Jacob Stockdale - 16/1
  • James Ryan - 16/1
  • Peter O'Mahony - 16/1
  • Stuart Hogg - 18/1
  • Finn Russell - 20/1
