The latest Six Nations odds show bettors think Wales will fail to beat France and complete a Grand Slam on Saturday reports Max Liu...
"At the outset of the Six Nations in February, England were to win the Championship and the Wales Grand Slam was backed at over 90.089/1. Now it's 3.55 on the Exchange."
Wales are 3.55 on the Exchange to complete a Six Nations Grand Slam ahead of their fifth and final match of the tournament against France.
The Welsh beat Italy 48-7 last weekend, scoring seven tries in the process, to give themselves a shot at what would be a second slam in three years and one that bettors didn't see coming.
At the outset of the Six Nations in February, England were to win the Championship and the Wales Grand Slam was backed at over 90.089/1.
But England lost their first match, against Scotland at Twickenham, before falling to Wales in round three.
Wales defied expectations to set up Grand Slam shot
Wales came into the Six Nations in poor form after winning jut three out of 10 matches in 2020 - their first year under coach Wayne Pivac. They finished fifth in last year's Six Nations and in the Autumn Nations Cup.
They have stunned opponents and many punters by transforming their form to achieve four Six Nations victories, including a Triple Crown success. They're the only team who can still win the clean sweep and only need a couple of match points to be officially crowned champions - they're 1.4640/85 to take the title with the French, who will play Scotland in their postponed fixture on 26 March, are 3.04.
Wales lost in a friendly in Paris in October and Saturday's match is set to be their toughest test so far this season. The French lost 23-20 to England last weekend but Les Bleus are 1.434/9 to beat Wales in the first match of this tournament at Stade de France.
Their final fixture against Scotland will also take place in Paris and, if France were to win that, they could yet finish top of the table
