I have also hedged out of my France to Win wager using the Welsh Triple Crown monies.  As I said before, the schedule this year was very advantageous to the punter once Ireland was beaten by the Welsh in Round One.

So, the To Win bets are a no-loss wash.

great write ups head

i'm always wary of taking 2 try + handicaps in the 6 nations, the azzurri arent completely useless and a  better bet than the frogs over the english maybe the under, i can see a really low scoring game panning out

Same here on the double-digits handicaps.  I felt the same way initially.  Books opened at 21.5.....bettors ate Italy up BIG.  Dropped to 19.5.  Books got what they wanted, HEAVY Italy action.

Warburton said a bomb will be dropped on Italy.  Gatland starting a STRONG XV.

Wales wins huge, makes it almost impossible to lose the 6N.

Wales covers this spread.

Get on it.

Lean on Ireland was also good.  Didn't play it though.  That frozen postponed match has screwed the flow of this tournament up.

France -7.5


Typical French.  Better talent, better experience, home pitch advantage......and lose.



Dupuy and Beauxis were spot on, punishing the England all day, as expected....but the rest of the side was a no show.  And when France needed a long drop goal to win, it was Trinh-Duc, not Beauxis, for the kick.  Trinh-Duc couldn't kick his way out of a wet paper bag.  Beauxis would have hit it with plenty of room to spare.

FAIL.  France

More strength on the Welsh -19.5.  Was my play of the round.

Originally thought England +7.5 all week, but the inclusion of Dupuy and Beauxis changed my mind.  Well, they played well, but the rest of those slugs didn't show up.

My initial thoughts for this weekend is that Italy should be favored over the hapless Scots

No, bolloz, sorry, no posts this weekend.  I was extremely busy with family and work stuff that had no time to post.  Liked Wales and England at home and stayed off the Spoonfest.

I figured France would pack it in and England at home would be too tough, especially since the English have shown such resilience this entire tourney.

Didn't have time to post though.

Extremely busy week.
