THE Six Nations is just a couple of weeks away and Scotland fans are flocking to back to have a punt on their team.
William Hill report a whopping 35 per cent of bets placed on who will win the Six Nations have been for Scotland, who are currently 14-1.
Hills spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Scotland were unlucky at the World Cup and it seems a load of our customers think they are the value bet of this year’s Six Nations.”
Meanwhile the favourites England have attracted 23% of bets and Wales 22%. Perhaps surprisingly only 9% of bets have been for Ireland and 4% for France.
Today’s club rugby features a European Champions Cup clash between Glasgow and French superpower Racing 92, who tonked the Warriors 34-10 a couple of weeks ago.
