06-02-2022 Daily Predictions Six Nations France Vs Italy

France vs Italy

France kickoff their Six Nations 2022 campaign with a match against Italy at the Stade de France. The home team comes into this year’s tournament as many peoples favourite for the title. They will be livid with the way last year’s competition ended for them. Going into their final match they needed a 20 point victory margin over Scotland to clinch the title. They not only failed to achieve that but also lost the match in comical circumstances. France had a great November International series winning their three matches while also beating the All Blacks

TIP: France are seeking their first title since 2010 and this year represents their best chance in more than a decade. France will be led by World Player of the Year Anton Dupont after he declared himself fit after testing positive for Covid. They will regard anything other than a bonus point win as a failure against Italy. They will look to set a marker for the other teams in their first match. The bookies have France as certainties for the win and I have to agree with this. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.01, Playabets 1.01 and Sunbet 1.01

PREDICTION

Each year the calls grow louder for the Italians to be removed from the Six Nations as year after year they fail to win a match. They have since gone 29 matches in the tournament without a win. Italy were on a nine game losing streak across all competitions until they beat Uruguay in November to break their win drought. Their record away from home is no wins in their last 17 matches with the last win coming in 2018 against Japan in a friendly international. Italy will be hoping young stars like Paulo Garbisi can shine to avoid more embarrassing defeats. Italy will try to at least be competitive and I predict France will win by less than 30 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

Italy will struggle with the French power and flair as the home team have threats all around the field. The Italians must try and slow the game down as this is their best chance of not suffering a heavy defeat. Italy will hope that France are rusty as many of their players are returning from injury enforced breaks. The bookies are offering no returns on the France win therefore I suggest the away team on the generous handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (+34.5) 1.95, Sunbet (+34.5) 1.91 and Playabets (+34.5) 1.88
