Round 1 Treble
I expect a huge performance from Wales on Friday night, it will be tight, it always is. But the welsh have the players to close out tight games now and are building a strong squad in world cup year.
Scotland will win, but there will be some rust there. Italy will be very competitive for the first hour as they will see this as their most winnable game. But Scotland should ease away in the last 20 to a comfortable win.
Ireland should have enough to win, but England will really fancy an upset in Dublin, I have had word that the training camp in Portugal had a great feel to it and they really fancy causing an upset. This is a contest that could go either way, so playing England on the handicap is a no brainer.
Wales to Win – generally Even Money.
Italy To Win with +24 points – Even Money with Paddy Power, generally 10/11.
Please note some bookmakers may show a 22 or 25 point handicap.
England To Win with +9 points – Even Money with Paddy Power, Betfair & Bet365, generally 10/11.
Please note some bookmakers may show an 8 point handicap.
Win Treble 7/1 based on available prices above.
