Tip England - Scotland

England haven't been totally impressive in the Six Nations this season and there's still a lot of work to do if they want to win the 2019 World Cup. Even so, they have three straight wins over France, Wales and Italy and are well on their way to another Grand Slam. They lead the Six Nations table by three points from Ireland with Scotland a further point behind. The long unbeaten run continues for England but there have been some anxious moments in this championship, not to mention some puzzlement at the Italian side's tactics. It's nine years since Scotland last beat England but they are an improving side and this won't be a cakewalk for England hence only my opinion you should go for England to win on a -11 handicap. The Scots have already beaten Ireland and could have won in France.

Key points England - Scotland

  • England haven't lost to Scotland since 2008.

  • You have to go back to 1983 for the last time Scotland beat England at Twickenham.

  • England are unbeaten since the 2015 World Cup.

Conclusion England - Scotland

England aren't at their best at present but get the job done. Scotland will put up a big fight but home advantage will see England get a win on a -11 handicap.
