England will continue their bid for a third successive Six Nations title when they travel to Edinburgh for arguably the toughest assignment of their campaign.
Eddie Jones’ men made it back-to-back wins by edging Wales and their next hurdle is a Scotland side buoyed by a 32-26 victory over France.
A Look At Scotland’s Betting Odds
Gregor Townsend’s team were viewed as genuine contenders for the Six Nations crown before the tournament kicked off and that pressure could explain their nightmare performance in Cardiff.
There was clearly a hangover from their 34-7 thrashing by Wales in the first half against France but, inspired by Greig Laidlaw, Scotland turned a 20-14 deficit into a championship-reviving victory.
The Dark Blues have enjoyed some memorable evenings in Edinburgh recently – most notably their record 53-24 triumph over Australia in November – and they would love nothing more than to end England’s Grand Slam hopes.
Scotland have not had much success in the fixture in recent years – their last victory was in 2008 – and they are expected to once again come off second best.
But backed by a passionate crowd, we like 11/10 for the hosts to come out with all guns blazing and score the first try from the Scotland vs England odds.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
However, England are a side that just know how to win.
Jones’ team did not get close to their best against Wales yet ground out a crucial 12-6 success to take the Australian’s record as England coach to 24 victories in 25 games.
Don’t be surprised to see England with their backs against the wall in Edinburgh, but they have the tools to turn the game on its head.
“We are really excited about this game and we will need to be very tough and relentless in our defence to keep the pressure on this Scottish team,” said Jones.
“They are renowned for their attack so we will need to put pressure on them, create opportunities through our defence for our attack, and convert those opportunities to points.
“Our preparation over the last two weeks has been important in that it has allowed us to regenerate the players, improve the fitness of some and to get a clear understanding on how we will play this weekend.”
Nathan Hughes will start at number eight and we finish our Scotland vs England betting predictions with 6/1 that England overturn a half-time deficit to win.
