Trading talk – six nations week 3

Trading Talk – Six Nations Week 3

After the success of last year’s Friday evening kick-off, Wales and France fans are treated to a repeat at the Millennium Stadium this year. Spread bettors can also look forward to the match with those having bought France’s outright index, currently at 52-55pts (60pts to the winner, 40pts for second, 20pts for third, 10pts for fourth and 5pts for fifth) eager for the visitors to take one step closer to the trophy.

These countries have each won two Grand Slams since the Five Nations became six, and buyers of France’s win index spread might be interested to know that both of the nation’s faultless Championships, in 2002 and 2004, came with victory in Cardiff. Spread buyers of total points for the match will notice the propensity for high scores in this fixture. In the last ten meetings, the lowest points tally is 37, the highest an incredible 78 points in 2001.

Sporting Index’s traders will be pleased that the Championship so far has gone mainly to form, although sellers of the England/Italy supremacy spread last weekend profited from a closer than expected score. The Red Rose will be back in action at Twickenham and Sporting Index’s traders as well as spread bettors know that their match against Ireland could go either way. Martin Johnson’s side were very close to denying the Boys in Green a first Grand Slam since 1948 at Croke Park last year – the margin of victory for Declan Kidney’s side was a single point. Sellers of the total match points spread will remember the game well, as it was tied at 3-3 at the halfway stage, before finishing 14-13 for a total of 27 – still a good result for spread sellers.

Buyers of Ireland’s win index (25pts for a win plus points scored by team) will be impressed that they have actually had the better of England twice out of their last three trips to Twickenham, winning in both 2004 and 2006. In fact, buyers of England’s supremacy spread may be shocked to learn that since England’s Grand Slam in 2003, the year they also lifted the World Cup in Australia, Ireland have beaten England on five out of six meetings at all venues. The same spread punters may also find it surprising that prior to this year, Ireland were the most successful side in the Six Nations, jointly with France, having won 36 out of 50 matches since Italy joined the fold.

Spread bettors who prefer to base their rugby union spread bets based on the more statistical spreads may have been dismayed by Jonny Wilkinson’s off-colour kicking against Italy. He still managed to kick 113m, but that will mean little to those who bought the spread at 165m. He will be keen to get back on track in his next game and with a more familiar ball on the kicking tee buyers of the kicking metres spread might not be too concerned. Others may prefer to look at buying the total tries spread as although only two were scored in the low scoring encounter last year, the previous three match-ups saw four, five and five touchdowns.
