What a fascinating Six Nations clash we have in store on Saturday evening as Wales look to maintain their perfect start.

A home win over reigning champions England would be such a huge lift for them but they are going to have to do it as underdogs.

England recovered from their opening defeat against Scotland to beat Italy last time out.

This is a whole different ballgame in Cardiff however.

Wales Preview – Can Wales get one over on England?

What a position Wales will be in if they could come up with a home win over England on the weekend.

The Welsh have opened with two wins from two, so would be right in the title mix if they could produce maximum points in this game.

The bookmakers have Wales as the 2/1 underdogs for the fixture however* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).

Wales opened on home soil against Ireland and produced a narrow 21-16 victory, despite playing against 14 men for about three-quarters of the match.

Then on the second weekend of action in the 2021 Six Nations, they visited Murrayfield and came away with a scrappy 1-point margin success.

But the manner of victory won’t matter too much for them.

After winning only once in last season’s championship, this has been a dream start.

Can they follow it up now and claim a win over England?

The last time they met in Wales in the Six Nations, it was the home side on top with a 21-13 victory.

Focusing only on the Six Nations matches, Wales have won two of their last five home fixtures against England.

Even though they have been winning, it hasn’t been great stuff from them in terms of performances in this season’s championship.

Our betting prediction:
England 1-7 winning margin

A Wales +6 handicap is at even money for the fixture, so the bookies expect this to be somewhat tight* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).

That’s reasonable because England haven’t looked very good as an attacking unit either.

Both of the wins for Wales this season in the championship have happened, despite them conceding the first try of each match.

If their recent form is anything to go by, they are turning into a strong second-half team.

Wales have won the second half of their last three matches by at least a ten-point margin.

Wales to win the second half on Saturday is at 9/5* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).


England Preview – What can England produce?

England have not looked particularly great in this season’s Six Nations championship and have some real work to do to defend their crown.

There was a shock home loss for Eddie Jones’ men on the opening week of action.

They were beaten by Scotland at Twickenham, being fully unable to adapt when Plan A wasn’t working for them.

England then went to Rome in the second round of action with a chance to cut loose a bit and put on a big attacking display.

It didn’t really happen and they conceded the first try of the game before going on to win 41-18.

But England really struggled for creativity and cutting edge in attack once again.

However, England do go to Cardiff as the 4/9 odds-on favourites for the victory* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).

How badly they need it to stay in the title race, for which France are clear favourites at the moment.

In almost 80% of internationals that England played in 2019 and 2020, they scored the opening try.

So it has been surprising to have seen them give up the first one in both matches this season.

For Rugby Betting a Wales To Score First option is at 11/10* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).

The hosts will want to get to England early and unsettle the visitors.

England have won two of their last four Six Nations away games only when they have been the favourite in the match outright.

So only running at a 50% win rate from recent history, does that make them vulnerable?

But then England did beat Wales twice last year, once in the Six Nations and then in Cardiff in the Autumn Nations Cup.

They don’t look capable of pulling off a convincing, wide-margin victory at the moment and the England -5 handicap line for 10/11 looks just about right* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).

They will be under huge pressure to perform, but Wales will have already seen how Scotland handled them and will look to give the visitors a big run for their money.


Wales vs England Betting Advice

What a cracking game we have here and Wales are likely to be brimming with aspirations of upsetting their rivals.

Neither team has been very good in the attack in this Championship and we don’t see this as being a big open game.

So it’s the Wales +6 handicap at even money that takes the fancy* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wales vs England Betting Tip

  • Wales have won both fixtures so far, despite conceding the opening try in both
  • Wales beat England in their last Six Nations home game against them
  • England have won 2 of their last 4 away games as favourites in the Championship


They have found ways to win their games this season without playing all that well and they do have the comforts of home soil here.

Wales did also win their last home game in the Six Nations against England, so we see them getting under England’s skin as the English are pretty predictable in their approach.

We do think England just sneak across the finish line, and an England 1-7 winning margin looks appealing at 11/4* (odds taken 06:00 GMT February 25th, 2021).
