If you are into wagering on rugby, or you would simply like to give it a go, you can find markets on the Six Nations at Betiton™ Sportsbook for UK players. We provide various markets as well, meaning that you’ll never get bored betting on rugby.
However, if you’re new to sports betting and the Six Nations, then there are a couple of things that you’re going to need to know. Not to worry, though, as we’ve taken it upon ourselves to provide you with all the necessary information on this page.
What Are Six Nations Betting Markets?
Six Nations betting markets are the wagers that we make available on the illustrious rugby competition. We provide these on our sportsbook alongside the odds of each market; however, we’ll be explaining what these are in another section.
We offer markets on just about every aspect of the famed championship. For instance, you can go with the outright winner of the tournament, or you can be more specific, choosing winners of each game, who will score the most tries, and so on.
The 4 Most Popular Six Nations Betting Markets at Betiton™ Sportsbook
As we’ve said, our UK players will be able to find markets on a number of things that might happen over the course of the Six Nations championship. However, our 4 most popular markets are the following:
- Outright Winner
- Double Result
- Highest Scoring Half
- Point Spread
To win this market, all you have to do is successfully predict who the winner of the championship will be.
This market depends on players to correctly guess what the score will be at both half-time and the end of the game, rather than simply predicting who the winner of the match or what the score at the end will be.
Highest Scoring Half
On the other hand, this market requires players to correctly guess if there will be more points scored in the first or the second half of the game; otherwise, they can opt to bet on a draw.
This market creates an even playing field in a game between two teams where one is a clear winner. The point spread is a range of points that the stronger team must score over in order for players who wager on that team to win their wager. On the other hand, the weaker team will either need to win or maintain that difference in scores for the bet on them to win.

How Does the Six Nations Work?
The Six Nations plays things a little differently from other sporting events in that there is no double round-robin. The teams actually only play one another once for a total of 15 matches, and who plays at home is alternated on a yearly basis.
As of 2017, the Six Nations has opted for a bonus points system, instead of their original system. The original system awarded 2 points for victories, a point for draws, and none for losses. The current system, however, awards more points.
Teams receive 4 points for winning; 2 points for draws; a point for scoring 4 or more tries in a match; a point for losing by 7 points of fewer; and there are none awarded for a loss. Finally, if a nation manages to achieve a Grand Slam, they receive 3 extra points.
A Grand Slam is a clean sweep against one’s opponents, beating all the other teams and winning the prize. This is a prestigious achievement for a nation to get; teams that manage to achieve the Grand Slam are generally regarded as being amongst the best.
However, there are a number of other trophies and accolades to win along the way. For instance, the 4 home nations (England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales) also compete to take the Triple Crown—that is to beat the other 3 teams.

Where is the Six Nations Going to be Held?
The Six Nations is not hosted by any one venue, city, or country. Instead, the event takes place across all 6 countries who are part of the event, with each team playing in their home ground that’s usually located in the capital city.
This means that teams will get a home advantage in at least two of their games each year. Which country plays who at home is alternated each year. A table of the stadiums and other related information has been provided below:

Find Out More About Six Nations Betting Odds
If you decide on placing a bet on the Six Nations, you’ll need to pay close attention to the odds. These are the numbers that you’ll find next to each on our offered markets. These will give you a clear indication of how likely it is that your wager will be successful.
Moreover, they also give you an idea of how much you’ll receive as returns for a winning wager. This is why it’s important to understand what odds tell you. Finally, these numbers come in either of 3 formats: fractional, decimal, or American.
The differences between these formats are: where in the world they happen to be most popular, and how they indicate the your chances of winning your wager. Otherwise, these formats are largely interchangeable, so you can use whichever you’re most comfortable with.
The most common format in the UK is the fractional format. At the same time, this format is quite popular with bookmakers in Ireland too. This format uses fractions to represent the odds, like so: 6/1, 4/5, 8/3, etc.
This format, on the other hand, is popular in mainland Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, and it uses decimal numbers to show you the risk and reward of a wager. This format is usually represented like so: 4.50, 3.75, 1.07, etc.
