Bet on the Six Nations Championship

The Six Nations Rugby Tournament is an institution in European rugby that takes place every year between February and March. It is a competition that gathers the crème de la crème of rugby players from the northern hemisphere.

The event is not to be missed by fans and punters. The Six Nations U20s international tournament will also take place during the same months.

Betting on the Six Nations Rugby Tournament

Each Six Nations Rugby Tournament consists of 15 rugby matches — 3 matches are played each weekend for a little over a month. During the tournament, the national championships, such as the Premiership or the Top 14, continue to be played.

Several rivalries exist within the tournament, such as the Calcutta Cup between England and Scotland. Then there is the winner of the Triple Crown for the British nation that beats its local rivals, as well as the Crunch between France and England. Another coveted prize is the Grand Slam — to finish the tournament without losing a single game, while at the other end of the scale, the nation that finishes bottom gets the wooden spoon.

The Rugby Championship, formerly known as the Tri-Nations, is a similar tournament for the southern hemisphere. Make bets on the Rugby Championship with bwin.

Bet on the best European rugby nations

The standard of the Northern Hemisphere teams has risen considerably recently, as rugby fans have witnessed during the autumn international tests, which are the last gathering of the national teams before the 6 Nations tournament takes place.

In the IRB rankings, many teams are competing for the number 1 slot. In the recent past, France, England, Ireland and Wales have all been at the top of the rankings, which helps bettors to compare the various national rugby teams' ratings.

Besides the Six Nations tournament, the other big event in rugby is the Rugby World Cup. Place your bets on the Rugby World Cup on our online sports betting platform.

Recommended bet on the Six Nations tournament

As the name suggests, in the 6 Nations Rugby tournament, there are six international sides. This means every team has to play once against each of its five opponents with the home advantage in alternate seasons, giving a total of 15 matches per Championship. The best possibility for each team is to host three times and travel to Italy once, as they are the weakest team with many wooden spoon awards in recent tournaments. The shortest rugby betting odds are often for the Italians' opponents.

In rugby, home-winning percentages are significant. Host nations have a much higher win rate. For this reason, we recommend betting on home wins except where the home nation is the Italians.
