Wales v England Six Nations Bet Boosts: Steve Borthwick's charges to prevail in 15/2 shot

The Six Nations returns for a third round of action as Wales host England in a crunch meeting at the Principality Stadium, with a number of BOOSTED odds markets available for this match including an enticing 15/2 shot.

Both England and Wales will be desperate to pick up a morale-boosting victory in Cardiff following disappointing starts to their respective Six Nations campaigns, with Steve Borthwick's men succumbing to a shock opening match defeat against Scotland in the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham whilst the Welsh have lost their opening two matches.

England were able to bounce back from their loss against the Scots by claiming a 31-14 victory over Italy in their second match, although the Red Rose still largely flattered to deceive again for the majority of the contest against a spirited Italian side.

This weekend's hosts Wales appear to have problems on and off the park ahead of their meeting with England, with Warren Gatland's squad having not only been humbled by both Ireland and Scotland in their first two matches but also been embroiled in a contract dispute with their national association.

It's difficult to predict whether these these off-the-field issues will have distracted or galvanised the Welsh camp in the build up to this crucial match against England, with a big improvement in performance required in order to thwart Owen Farrell and Co as they seek to gain some respectability in the Six Nations standings.

England will likely fancy their chances of hurting this out-of-sorts Welsh side, but the Principality Stadium is no easy place to play as the away side.

It's all geared up for a pulsating encounter between the two rivalling rugby nations, with a number of BOOSTED odds markets available for the match including the appealing 15/2 shot below...

Backing up the Boost

England are strongly fancied to have too much for Wales in Cardiff with a price of 10/23 in the Full Time Result market, and it's not hard to see why following the nature of Wales' defeats to Ireland and Scotland in their opening two matches of the Six Nations.

Warren Gatland's side were blown away early on by the world's number one ranked side Ireland, conceding two tries in the first 10 minutes before eventually succumbing 34-10. Against the Scots, Wales put in a respectable first half showing before collapsing in the second period in a 35-7 romp.

It's clear this Welsh side is lacking in confidence, and within the England squad there are attacking players capable of causing real danger with the ball in hand. 

Steve Borthwick has selected Saracens' Max Malins and Leicester Tigers' Anthony Watson in the wing positions for the trip to Cardiff, with the latter currently joint-top of the Tournament Tryscorer standings on two after a double against Scotland in England's opening match. Malins is currently priced at 11/2 to finish the tournament with the most tries.

For Anthony Watson, this weekend will mark his first England start for almost two years following extended injury troubles, and the 28-year-old will be eager to add to his impressive tally of 22 international tries at the Principality.
