England’s Autumn Nations Cup campaign gets a little tougher on the weekend as they play host to Ireland in their second fixture.

It was a breeze for England in their opener against Georgia.

They will be expected to follow up with a victory over Irish, who they beat in this year’ Six Nations.

Ireland opened their campaign with a comfortable win of their own, thumping Wales in Dublin.

So this will likely be the decider for the group win.

England Preview – England can continue Autumn progress

England collected an efficiently ruthless 40-0 victory at home over Georgia in their Autumn Nations Cup opener.

That was their first match since picking up the Six Nations title.

So it has already been a positive Autumn for England, but this will be their toughest game since the restart.

England are the 1/4 odds-on favourites to earn the win on Saturday* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).

During this season’s Six Nations, England played host to Ireland at Twickenham and posted a 24-12 win.

That has been three wins on the spin now for England against the men in green, the last two coming on home turf.

Each of their last three wins over the Irish have been by a margin of at least 12 points.

Our betting prediction:
England 11-20 Winning Margin

(odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November)


For England v Ireland rugby betting on Saturday, an England -12 handicap is right there at the 10/11 quote* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).

Against Georgia last weekend, England didn’t try anything fancy. They stuck to their battering of defence through the forwards.

So there is a clear game plan in place from coach Eddie Jones and that is the area where England are the strongest.

Earning dominance up front, and England have a lot of exciting options in that area, will make England’s life easier.

That will be their way forward against the Irish.

England have made changes to the pack from their last game with Charlie Ewels and Jack Willis both dropping out.


Ireland Preview – Can Ireland upset the odds in London?

Ireland will have Ross Byrne starting as captain for the first time as Jonny Sexton is out of this match.

The autumn returned with Ireland taking a big win over Italy in the Six Nations, leaving them in with a chance of taking the title on the final weekend.

That required them, in part, to take a win in Paris in their final match, which didn’t happen.

However, they are competitive and won’t show up and give England a free run of Twickenham of course.

Ireland are 4/1 underdogs in rugby betting in the match outright* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).

Will they be able to get one over on England? It has been a while since they have, as mentioned above.

It’s been even longer since they last won at Twickenham.

It was back in 2010 that the Irish last won there, collecting a 20-16 Six Nations victory.

Ireland have taken only the three wins in their last twelve matches against England, home and away.

So the head to head is stacked against them for this Autumn Nations League cup fixture.

In looking around for a reasonable handicap line to support Ireland with, a +11 is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).

We have to look back at their defeat in France at the end of the Six Nations campaign, where they had defensive lapses which couldn’t keep the French contained.

They were more composed against Wales last weekend, but they are missing key players with Jonny Sextion and Robbie Henshaw both on the sideline.


England vs Ireland Betting Advice

Another top clash for the autumn rugby and Ireland will be heading to Twickenham with a bit of confidence after having beaten Wales easily last time out.

But Wales are at a low ebb at the moment and look there for the taking. Ireland only put their second try on the match there in the 81st minute.

It was six penalty kicks in the match that really helped the Irish score there, as Wales struggled defensively.


Key Facts – England vs Ireland Betting Tip

  • England have won their last three against Ireland
  • England beat Ireland at Twickenham in this year’s Six Nations
  • Ireland have won just three of their last twelve against England


Ireland are not likely to get the same kind of opportunities at Twickenham on the weekend.

As they have already lost there this year, we have to side with an England win.

England are powerful upfront and they signalled their intention of keeping the ball in that area with how they played against Georgia last weekend.

A England 11-20 winning margin is worth a look at 11/4 for rugby betting* (odds taken 21:24 GMT Wednesday, 18th November).
