France Listed as Firm Second Favourites for Six Nations


The French side come into the 2011 Six Nations tournament with plenty of confidence and they’ll be looking to build on last year’s first-rate effort. While the bookmakers have England installed as the lukewarm favourites, the French are breathing down their necks with a price that could fluctuate dramatically after the opening fixture.

France boast a relatively straightforward match-up against Scotland on February 5 and they’ll be strong odds-on favourites for the win there. France are favoured to scoop up exactly three wins and the bookmakers are pricing them at 11/8 to do so while four victories in the tournament would reward at a 13/8 price.

France are trading at 11/2 to secure the Grand Slam and they also boast one of the top contenders for leading points scorer in the tournament. Morgan Parra is considered the 3/1 second favourite to outscore everybody else in the competition and the Clermont scrum-half (and occasional fly-half) will be getting plenty of attention from his opponents.

Toby Flood is the current favourite to achieve the top scorers position with a 9/4 price from most major bookmakers.

Punters can effectively wager against France to win the tournament by backing them to finish in the 2nd-6th position at a 1/3 price tag. They are 9/4 in that market for the outright victory.
