Six Nations 2024 Outright odds: Ireland odds-on favourites after thrashing Italy

We will be keeping you up to date with the Outright odds market throughout the 2024 Six Nations Championship.

France will be aiming to win back their Six Nations crown after relinquishing their title to Ireland in 2023, with manager Fabien Galthie certainly having the talent in his pool to do so.

Fuelled by their failure to secure a first world title on home soil, France were hoping to repeat their memorable Grand Slam in 2022 but were soundly beaten by Ireland on the opening night of the tournament.

But they bounced back with victory against Scotland at Murrayfield and should make it back-to-back wins against Italy in their next game.


Ireland started off as second favourites for the 2024 Six Nations Championship in spite of their Grand Slam triumph in the tournament in 2023.

Similarly to France, Andy Farrell's side also endured a bitterly disappointing exit at the quarter-final stage of the Rugby World Cup, succumbing to a 24-28 defeat at the hands of New Zealand.

They've made an emphatic start to their campaign with a record 38-17 victory over France and a routine 36-0 win against Italy, with Ireland now odds-on favourites to retain their crown.


Steve Borthwick's England began as third favourites for the 2024 Six Nations as they look to banish memories of their disappointing campaign last year, in which the Red Rose finished fourth in the overall standings.

There's been a raft of changes since their journey to the semi-finals of World Cup, with captain Owen Farrell stepping down from England duties while stalwarts Ben Youngs, Courtney Lawes and Jonny May all hung up their boots in the aftermath.

The changing landscape marks a new era in English rugby and after securing victories over Italy and Wales, there is growing confidence that England could challenge this year.


Scotland finished in a commendable third place in the 2023 Six Nations final table, behind the world number one and two in Ireland and France, with this vibrant Scottish squad littered with attacking talent at present.

But the Bravehearts' defence has deteriorated against the top boys in recent seasons and it was telling during their Rugby World Cup campaign, with Gregor Townsend's men bowing out in the group stage after a 16-3 defeat to South Africa and a 36-14 blowout against Ireland.

Scotland survived an incredible fightback from Wales to win their opener 27-26 in Cardiff, but they failed to build on their win as they were beaten by France at Murrayfield.


Welsh rugby appears in an unhealthy place at the moment, with problems on and off the field.

Gatland's plans have been hampered further by a number of injury issues, not least the loss of captain Jac Morgan.

Wales looked set to be embarrassed in their opening match against Scotland having trailed 27-0 but rallied tremendously, losing the match by a single point.

After losing to England in their second match, Wales are unlikely to be challenging for the 2024 title.


Italy remain rank outsiders for the 2024 Six Nations despite some admirable performances during the 2023 tournament in which they were competitive in every match.

At the Rugby World Cup, Gli Azzurri won their opening two matches against Namibia and Uruguay but were humbled by New Zealand and France, suffering a 96-17 defeat to the former.

Italy were narrowly beaten by England in their first game, before failing to get on the board in Ireland as they were soundly beaten 36-0.
