We at Lap of the Odds HQ have tended to steer clear of the individual Six Nations matches – not great odds for difficult games to predict.
However, the Ireland/Wales game screams of opportunity.
Wales have arguably been the team of the tournament so far. They dismantled Scotland first out and then ran England very close at Twickenham, a game they had the better of for large periods. And now they are getting key players back from injury.
Now it’s true Ireland have won both of their opening games, but they scraped past a poor French team and showed glimpses of fragility against Italy. And now they are missing three more key players, Lions each.
Throw in the fact the visitors have won 21 of the last 34 games between these two sides, and Wales start to look like an enticing proposition.
We are tempted with the 13/5 that Betfair offers on an outright win for Wales, but will take the evens with a seven point head start.
Recommendation: Wales to beat the seven point handicap, 1 pt, at evens, Paddy Power
