Free Tips for Six Nations : England vs Scotland

On Saturday 16th March England and Scotland will fight for the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham Stadium. This is the last sports match of the 2019 Six Nations Championship. Scotland won the last meeting with 25-13 in 2018 Six Nations, which was their first win in 10 years over England. Will it be another 10 years before Scotland can claim the Cup again?

The 2019 Six Nations is set for a thrilling conclusion as Wales, England and Ireland will battle for the Championship. Wales will secure the Championship with a win against Ireland. If Wales lose, England will secure the title with a bonus point victory against Scotland (could be enough with a simple win). Ireland´s only chance for the title is if they beat Wales and England loses to Scotland.

For England Maro Itoje has been ruled out for this last game of Six Nations. Eddie Jones has instead included 20-year-old Marcus Smith. Scotland on the other hand, Blair Kinghorn were injured on Saturday against Wales and won’t play against England. And Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour are also ruled out. Townsend have named Ruaridh Jackson and Kyle Steyn in their place.

Our Tip

As England look on a different level to Scotland right now, we are backing England with a -18 point handicap. The Scottish will come hopeful of a big upset, but if England can get points early, which we believe is likely, Scottish heads will drop as Eddie Jones’ men will try to dominate to secure a big win.

The Geeks tips for Saturday are England -18 point handicap at Paddypower odds 10/11.
