THERE'S  a Calcutta Cup cracker this evening as the Six Nations rugby kicks off in style.

Scotland take on the Auld Enemy at Murrayfield with the teams heading into the game on the back of contrasting World Cup campaigns.

The Scots did well to reach the quarter-finals – where they were only narrowly beaten by Australia – while hosts England suffered a group-stage exit that led to Stuart Lancaster being axed as head coach.

New boss Eddie Jones takes charge for the first time tonight and his side are 1-2 favourites with William Hill for victory at a ground where they are undefeated since 2008.

Vern Cotter's Scotland are 5-2 underdogs at Stan James and under 38.5 points in the match – which has landed in seven of the last eight Murrayfield meetings of the sides – pays 5-6 at Ladbrokes.

The earlier game sees France heavy odds-on favourites to beat 14-1 underdogs Italy.

Other highlights on a packed Saturday of sport including semi-final action from the ATP Montpellier tennis and German Masters snooker.

There's also 10 NBA games through the night so don't miss Jordan's tip tops – he'll post them below as a comment – and let's hear all your own picks and chat for the day's sporting action.

    Posted on the rugby forum 27TH JANUARY 2016 AT 4:48 AM

    The Six Nations Championship is the annual northern hemisphere rugby union championship,
    It is contested by (world rankings in brackets)
    England (8)
    France (7)
    Ireland (6)
    Italy (12)
    Scotland (9)
    Wales (4)

    The changes have been made after what was a shocking World Cup on home soil, two wins in the group stage against Fiji and Uruguay, with two defeats at the hands of Australia and Wales
    New head coach Eddie Jones has appointed Dylan Hartley as captain.
    Their 23 man squad for the first match at Murrayfield against Scotland has eleven changes from the World Cup game against Australia,
    There are three uncapped players coming in, Jack Clifford (Harlequins), Paul Hill (Northampton) and Ollie Devoto (Bath)
    One player I was surprised to hear had been sent back to his club was Elliot Daly who has been overlooked in favour of Jonathan Joseph for the outside centre position,
    George Ford should be starting at fly-half, with a second row of George Kruis and Joe Launchbury and Owen Farrell inside-centre
    Chris Ashton is appealing his ten week ban which has ruled him out of the tournament unless successful.

    France start their championship at home to Italy, they have had a number of retirements since the World Cup, they also have a few injuries to contend with and will have ten uncapped players in their squad,
    Alexandre Dumoulin is out with Toulon centre Maxime Mermoz taking his place.
    One player who will be in the team is Rabah Slimani who has been a regular for the last two years.

    Last years Six Nations winners start against Wales in Dublin and were in danger of losing fly-half Jonathan Sexton for the Wales game, Sexton suffered a head injury but it now looks likely he will be fit,
    Prop Mike Ross should miss the start of the tournament and with the news now that prop Marty Moore will be out for eight weeks means Finlay Bealham (Connacht) has been brought in.
    Ireland have four uncapped players in the squad to face Wales
    Rory Best has been named captain after Paul O’Connell retired after the World Cup, Robbie Henshaw returns after recovering from a broken hand,
    Ireland’s injuries include Dan Tuohy, Darren Cave, Marty Moore, Mike Ross, Tommy Bowe, Iain Henderson and Peter O’Mahony with players coming in James Cronin, Tommy O’Donnell, Rob Herring, Andrew Trimble and Luke Marshall

    Another team making changes with ten uncapped players including South African back-rowers Andries Van Schalkwyk and Abraham Steyn
    Back in the team are players Kelly Haimona, Martin Castrogiovanni, Michele Campagnaro, Leonardo Ghiraldini and captain Sergio Parisse.

    One win in their last twelve matches in the six nations doesn’t make good reading, that one win was a 21-20 win against Italy but last year the performances were better than the results,
    Scotland start at home against England who they haven’t beat since 2008 but are being touted as championship winners this year after their run to the quarter finals in the World Cup and that agonising defeat to Australia.

    One player out is Ryan Wilson who is set to get a lengthy ban after being cited for allegedly grabbing the testicles of Northampton’s Lee Dickson.
    Two uncapped players coming in are props Rory Sutherland and Zander Fagerson,
    Scotland head coach Vern Cotter has said that he has selected a mixture of experience with some exciting young players coming through, some of whom have experienced the World Cup and are eager to move forward.
    They do have a lot of belief after the World Cup and a pretty much settled team, main player Tommy Seymore

    My favourites for the six nations who have won the last two six nations in the year following a World Cup,
    They start their campaign away to Ireland with George North likely to be on the left wing, but the other side is hard to call with Tom James, Alex Cuthbert and Hallam Amos all in contention.
    One worry for Wales is the lack of game time for fly-half Rhys Priestland who moved to Bath and has been understudy to England’s George Ford.
    Liam Williams should be fit for the Ireland game along with Sam Warburton who has recovered from an ankle injury,
    I thought they were unlucky in the World Cup but played well considering the injuries they had, main player I think will be scrum half Gareth Davies, he scored five tries in the World Cup and I like him for these championships

        • humble tipper 3 years ago

          Yeah robin had about 40 combined the previous night against the pistons. Defo on brook lopez tonight if his P&R stays at 30ish, he should grab rebounds easily against 76ers

    9/1 Euroleague Treble just missing out yesterday but managed to bounce back with Celtics +7.5 and Huggy’s Celtics total.

    Looking to start keeping things more simple in the coming days starting with the German Bundesliga….

    German Bundesliga Double

    Bayreuth (-3.5)

    Bremerhaven (+18.5)

    Double @ Evens – 5pts staked.

    Good luck!

    • mervin 3 years ago

      I’m gonna slightly follow you here mate with both games.

      Bayreuth -3.5
      Frankfurt -6.5

      Just shy of evens.

      This should hopefully land for both of us mate. I just feel more comfortable with the hugely in-form Frankfurt at home opposed to the patchy Bremerhaven away.

  9. hunter 3 years ago

    Early NBA Double

    Trail Blazers / Rockets (Under 225)

    GS Warriors (-3)

    Il be on ur German double.

    Secondly thanks to Bet365 because lately they have been clueless , two nights ago , Raptors were plus1.5 against Portland, couldnt tip it because i was too busy but their errors continued yesterday with the spurs spread

    NBA Singles

    Spurs -6 v Mavs 4 points EASY WINNER, as i wrote yesterday have watched the Mavs the last month and half and they have been poor slow and look plain old, spurs were always gonna beat them

    • hunter 3 years ago

      @captain Thanks for the shout mate. I need to take a leaf out of your book and not be so greedy with my bets (always looking for big odds). More often than not I’m hitting 3 from 4 or 4 from 5 which is consistantly unlucky if anything. Good luck with your bets today.

    Double landed last night (just). Not sure I’ll be on anything tonight gents. Haven’t had time to look through the fixtures and will unfortunately probably miss the big one between Warriors and Thunder. Might post something later but for now its no bet.

  20. raoul duke 3 years ago

    Oklahoma City Thunder +8 @ 1.90 (PP) – 1.5 Points.

    Good luck.

  21. Jordan 3 years ago

    Hi gents. Just had a quick browse over the markets for the Warriors game and while I think they could be good to cover, I’m going to try my luck at the HT spread which is -4 @ 9/10 @ Sporting Bet. Warriors usually come out flying in these big games and tend to slow it down in the second half unless behind but I’ll risk 2 points on the -4 HT.

    The Curry/Westbrook match up will be interesting as Westbrook is a good defender. Might be Klay with the bigger night.

  22. primetime 3 years ago

    Dabble on the college basketball tonight;

    Oklahoma -2.5
    Indiana -2.5

    Double pays evens (might be better priced else where)

    Stats suggest this should come in easily but both teams playing away so only chucking a few loose change on it.

  23. mervin 3 years ago

    I’m gonna slightly follow you here mate with both games.

    Bayreuth -3.5
    Frankfurt -6.5

    Just shy of evens.

    This should hopefully land for both of us mate. I just feel more comfortable with the hugely in-form Frankfurt at home opposed to the patchy Bremerhaven away.
