Six Nations Betting at Betiton™ UK

Last Updated: 08-07-2022 17:49

When it comes to international rugby tournaments, the Six Nations is definitely one of the most popular without a doubt. In fact, the Rugby World Cup aside, we think that it is not too much of an exaggeration to say that the Six Nations is the most anticipated tournament in rugby union. The Six Nations starts at the beginning of February and finishes on Saint Patrick’s Day Saturday in March and sees England, Scotland, Wales, France, Ireland, and Italy battle it out for the trophy. Keep on reading to find out all you need to know about Six Nations betting 2022.


What Are Six Nations Betting Markets? 

Rugby Six Nations betting has become really popular over the last couple of years, and we believe that one of the main reasons for this increase in rugby betting is the fact that there are now so many different markets that rugby bettors can put their money on.

Sports that have plenty of betting markets will always be popular with punters as the variety ensures that boredom does not creep in at any stage. Yes, betting on a team to win is fun, but if your only option was betting on a team to be victorious, then things would become boring pretty quickly. 

The 4 Most Popular Six Nations Betting Markets at Betiton™ Sportsbook 

At Betiton™, you will be able to bet on a wide variety of Six Nations betting markets, but there are four that have become the most popular and these are what we are going to look at now in a bit more detail. If you are new to 6 Nations rugby betting, then we recommend that you start of by placing some bets on the following markets.  

Outright Winner

With an outright winner bet, what you are doing is putting money on the team that you believe will go on to win the whole competition. You should think about placing your bet on this market as early as possible because the Six Nations betting odds will only get lower with each passing round of matches. It is important to note here that you do not need the team that you chose to lift the trophy to win the Grand Slam in order to win this type of bet—they just have to lift the main trophy.  

Double Result

When it comes to a double result bet, you are simply betting on what you think the result will be at half-time and what you think the result will be at the end of the match. For example, let us say that Ireland are playing Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, and you want to make a double result bet. In this case, you can put money on the following outcomes: 

  • Ireland/Ireland 
  • Draw/Ireland 
  • Ireland/Draw 
  • Ireland/Wales 
  • Wales/Ireland 
  • Draw/Draw 
  • Wales/Wales 
  • Draw/Wales 
  • Wales/Draw 

Highest Scoring Half

This type of bet is as simple as it sounds: you just have to pick a match that you want to place a wager on and then decide whether more points will be scored in the first half of the game or in the second half of the game. This is one of those bets where you have a 50/50 chance of getting it right, so the 6 Nations betting odds that are on offer will not be that high, but it will still be an entertaining wager.  

Point Spread

With a point spread, what you are practically doing is giving one of the teams an advantage and one of the teams a disadvantage. Point spread betting is also known as handicap betting, and it comes in handy when the match result odds are not worth your while due to the fact that one of the teams is considered to be a huge favourite to win the game. This will usually be the case when one of England, Wales, Scotland, France, or Ireland are taking on Italy. By placing a handicap, you can increase the Six Nations odds of the favourites.  

For example, you can give the favourite a -30-point handicap, meaning that they have to overcome a 30-point deficit in order for you to land your wager. If they originally had odds of 1.10 to be victorious, the -30-point handicap could see the odds jump to something such as 1.80. If they go on to win the match 35-5, you will lose your wager as according to the handicap bet that you made, the final score is a 35-35 draw.  

Other Markets You Can Wager on 

Above we looked at the four most popular markets that sports bettors bet on at Betiton™ UK, but there are plenty of other fun markets and we shall look at some of these right now.  

Triple Crown Winner

England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland all compete for the Triple Crown, and this is given to the team that manages to beat the other three home nations. With a Triple Crown winner market, what you are doing is betting on the team that you will think will lift this trophy. Obviously, there might not be a winner, and you can bet on this outcome too.  

Leading Try Scorer

In a game of football, you can put money on who you believe will be the top scorer in a big competition, and in rugby union you can put money on the player that you think will score the most tries. Simply pick a player that you think will be the top try scorer, and if they go on to be so, you win the wager.  

Match Winner

As well as the tournament winner market, you can also obviously place bets on a team that you believe will come out on top in a particular match. You just choose one of the participating teams, and if they go on to be victorious, you will win your wager. There will be the option of betting on a draw, but draws are pretty rare in this sport.  

Winning Margin

This happens to be one of the hardest bets to get right in a rugby game. To land such a wager you need to guess correctly the number of points that will separate the winning side from the losing side. The margins often start from 1-5 points and sometimes will go to 46-50 points – this will depend on who is playing who.

How Does the Six Nations Work? 

The championship begins on the first weekend in February and the final round of matches is known as “Super Saturday” as this is often the day that we find out who will be crowned champions and can claim to be the best in Europe. The format of this championship is as easy as it gets—England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, and Italy all play each other one time, which means that the tournament is made up of 15 games in total. Home advantage changes each season, which means that if France plays England one year at the Stade de France, the next year they will play against each other at Twickenham.  

Before the 2017 championship, two points were awarded for a win, one point for a draw, and no points for a defeat. However, in the 2017 version, a new bonus point system was introduced. This new system is now the one that is used in most rugby union tournaments.  

The team that wins gets a min of four points, but if they manage to score a min of four tries in the game, they are given an extra bonus point. If a team loses by fewer than seven points, then they walk away with a losing bonus point. A team that won the Grand Slam are given three additional points to ensure that they do not end up finishing second because another team lost one game, but picked up bonus points in their other four. It would be a bit strange to have the best team in the competition finishing in second place.  

Up until 1994, if two teams finished on the same number of points, both would be declared as the winners. However, nowadays, if two teams are tied, then the side that has the best points difference will be declared the winner. If points difference is the same, then whoever scored the most tries will win the title. If tried are tied, then it is a shared championship

So, if you are thinking about betting on a winner, you need to try and time your bet perfectly—the later you leave it, the lower the 6 Nations winner odds will go, but if you place your wager too early without getting a feel for the type of form that a team is in, then it could end up coming to back to bite you.
