France v Ireland, Betting Preview & Prediction

FRANCE v IRELAND – Click here to bet

Ireland will know what they have to do going into this game having seen the result of England playing against Italy away. 

The prospect of beating this French team and scoring a bonus point is certainly not an easy one and France showed with a convincing win over Wales, in a friendly International last weekend that they will be no pushovers.  In their 2 home games in the Six Nations to date with a 7 point win over England and a 13 point win over Italy.

Ireland were too strong for Italy at home last week, but in the only away match of the Six Nations campaign they lost by 12 points to England.  They do have a good recent record against France away winning 2, drawing 1 and losing 1 of their last 4 matches in Paris.

Total Points punters should note that these games are generally low scoring with no more than 42 points in the last 6 matches between the sides in Paris.


France 4/7

Draw 22/1

Ireland 33/20

Handicap:  France (-3.5) at 9/10, Ireland (+3.5) at 9/10

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, France (-3.5) at 9/10

I can see a situation where Ireland realises the task of winning the Six Nations is beyond them and France takes control of the game and wins comfortably.
