Six Nations Match Betting Markets Explained

Rugby Union, like most other sports, is very well covered in betting, with markets available for almost every facet of the game. This can often cause things to get confusing for the bettors, with those that are not experts in rugby potentially needing some help sifting through what each market means. 

Fortunately, we here at Bettingpro pride ourselves on our knowledge of cricket and, like football, rugby and many other sports, we offer a full guide to the available markets, and the best way to make the most out of them.

Match Winner

The simplest market in the game. Here, you simply back the side you feel will win the match, it is as easy as that. This market is best utilised when two teams are quite evenly-matched. If it is difficult to pick a winner from the two, such as in a match between England and Ireland, then the odds on offer will hold more value, whereas backing Wales against Italy will see Italy offer huge value, but only because Wales will be huge favourites.


This market is a way of backing a favourite in the game, but it can offer good value. Simply put, you back a team with a handicap of either minus points or plus points to win the game. For example, if you want to back Ireland to beat Italy, you can back them with a handicap of -9 points, which means that if Ireland win by 8 points or less, then your bet will lose, while if they win, for example, 25-10, then your bet will win at better odds than in the standard Match Winner market. You can also back it the other way, and if you back Italy +9 and they lose 16-13, then your bet will still win because you backed the side with a handicap of +9. 


In this market, the bettor is able to back the team they feel will be ahead at half-time, and the team they feel will lead at full-time. This can prove very valuable if you correctly predict a minnow leading the favourite at half-time, only to then lead at full-time. It can also offer value if you back the underdog to lead at half-time and then full-time. 

Winning Margin

This market gives the punter the chance to back how many points they think a certain team will win by. Backing a side to win by 1-10 points, 11-20 points, 21-30 points and so on can offer very good value as the game of rugby is an exceptionally unpredictable one. If you are able to put money on the correct outcome, it can offer a good return.

Team To Score First

Here, the bettor chooses which side he feels will be the first on the scoreboard. Unlike football, which only has one way of scoring, rugby players can open the scoring via a try, a penalty or a drop goal, meaning that a side can be pushing for a try early on, only to decide to take the three points from a penalty. This market can be an unpredictable one, and backing the correct side to score first is not always easy. 

Highest Scoring Half

This market gives bettors the opportunity to back which half they feel will see the most points. The first weekend of the Six Nations usually sees a more cagey first-half, which is then followed by a slightly more open second-half as the trailing side looks to ensure they do not fall to an opening day defeat. Therefore, backing a higher scoring second-half may be intelligent, although rugby is a game that can surprise, with the first-half seeing big scores only for the points to dry up in the second 40.

First Try Converted

Here, the bettor can predict whether the first try of the game will be converted or not. A conversion being nailed first time around is usually the option with shorter odds, but if a team is to score in the corner, then backing the side to not add the extras offers very good value. 

Sending Off In Match 

This market simply allows a bettor to predict whether there will be a sending off in a match. Rugby is a sport of extreme physicality, and often it can boil over, with cheap shots at the bottom of a ruck, late tackles or last second tries sometimes sparking mass brawls, which can then lead to cards being dished out, with the colour of those cards up to the discretion of the referee.

What is the Six Nations?

The Six Nations is a yearly rugby tournament that pits the six best northern hemisphere sides against each-other. The sides that play in the competition are England, Wales, Ireland, France, Scotland and Italy. The tournament sees every side play the other five teams once across the competition, with a team playing three home games and two away games one year, and then playing three away games and two home games the following year. The 2018 edition of the tournament saw Ireland run out eventual winners as they beat every side in the competition to claim a Grand Slam.

What is a Grand Slam?

A Grand Slam is achieved by a team when they defeat every single side in the competition. Five victories across the tournament are not as easy to claim as it would seem though, with even the most dominant of sides often unable to defeat every side such is the quality of the competition in the Six Nations. 

In 2018, Ireland were able to win the Grand Slam as they beat France, Italy, Wales, Scotland and England. One of the home nations, (England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland) can claim the Triple Crown by defeating the other three nations. If a side wins the Grand Slam, they will also win the Triple Crown, while a side can also win the Championship (by finishing with the most points) and also collect the Triple Crown, but not win the Grand Slam if they fail to win every single match.
