England’s Grand Slam dreams are crushed as Wales produce an impressive record-breaking 12th consecutive Test win yesterday – a match up that has proven to be the most popular betting event of the tournament so far.
The event saw the bookmaker’s favourites, England, leading the close encounters up until a dramatic turn of events with Wales scoring 2 tries in the last 13 minutes to seal the deal.
Ahead of the weekend, figures showed that this head-to-head looked very attractive to punters with five times more wagers than the next most popular match in the tournament, France vs Scotland. With both teams unbeaten in the tournament, it was set to be a good show, and tipped to go England’s way as the bookmakers offered odds in their favour.
With a 26 per cent increase of betting on the Six Nations, in comparison to this time last year, the bookmakers will definitely be rubbing their hands together as England failed to bring home the glory.
