Tip England - Scotland
England have won three of their four games in this year's Six Nations Championship but it's the loss to Wales that is proving crucial. England know they can beat Scotland at Twickenham but still finish only second in the championship if Wales beat Ireland. This match takes place after the Wales game so by the time this game starts, the title race will be over. If Wales don't win, then this becomes the title decider and it's a game England should be able to win. They have been piling up the points in their games, especially against France and Italy and take on a Scotland side that has only one win from their four games. Their away form is poor and haven't beaten England at Twickenham in 36 years. England can be backed to get a win on a -18 handicap but will that get them glory or just see them regain the Calcutta Cup?
Key points England - Scotland
Scotland haven't beaten England at Twickenham since 1983.
England have won eight of their last nine games against Scotland
Two of the last three England home wins over Scotland would have been winners on a -18 handicap.
Conclusion England - Scotland
England will have an uncomfortable afternoon following the Wales v Ireland match. Victory for the Welsh gives them the Grand Slam and reduces the importance of this game against Scotland. Anything but a Welsh win makes this vitally important. England are in good form, especially at home and face a Scotland side that struggle on their travels and have only beaten Italy in this year's championship. England can be backed to win on a -18 handicap.
