England v Ireland, Betting Preview & Prediction

ENGLAND v IRELAND – Click here to bet

England v Ireland meet at Twickenham on Saturday and both teams opened their campaigns with victories. 

England were far too strong for Georgia winning 40-0 which is very much where the handicap for the match had been set.  England went into that game as Six Nations Champions having hammered Italy by 29 points in Rome.

Ireland were too strong for Wales last week winning 32-9 in Dublin, comfortably beating the 10 point handicap.  Prior to that they were beaten in the last round of Six Nations action by 8 points in Paris.

England have won 6 and lost 1 of their last 7 home matches against Ireland and in February this year they ran out convincing 24-12 winners when the sides met at Twickenham.

BETTING

England 2/9

Draw 30/1

Ireland 4/1

Handicap:  England (-11.5) at 9/10, Ireland (+11.5) at 9/10

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, England (-11.5) at 9/10

Despite Ireland winning well against Wales I wasn’t impressed with them last week and I think that England can win this game quite comfortably.
