Last year’s tournament ran for almost nine months as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and only finished on October 31, when England were crowned winners for the third time in five years. Eddie Jones has since brought a host of new names in as the 2019 Rugby World Cup finalists look to win back-to-back titles for the third time in Six Nations history.

England are +125 favorites to do so according to Unibet bonus review (NJ), or customers in New Jersey and other legal betting states can back the Red Rose to clinch their third Grand Slam (win all their games) at +225. A raft of Premiership talents (and a couple from the Championship) are poised to get their first tastes of international rugby in the coming weeks, while a hip injury means England have lost a substantial force in flanker Sam Underhill:

There’s also the matter of France, who have stormed the gates as a renewed superpower under head coach Fabien Galthie. It’s been 11 years since Les Bleus lifted the Six Nations, but they’re back as challengers for the crown at +225, or double England’s own Grand Slam odds at +450.

France finished level on points with champions England last year and lost the competition based on goal difference despite an emphatic last-day win over Ireland. Les Bleus play three of their five fixtures away from home this year, though that’s unlikely to play as much significance at a time when crowds aren’t allowed to attend:

Speaking of the Boys in Green, Andy Farrell’s men are another hot contender for the crown and the only other selection below four-digit odds. They’re priced at +400 to win the 2021 tournament overall, or +1200 to beat every opponent in sight, which could pose great value come March.

However, there’s still an impression this Ireland team is a work in progress and not nearly at its potential. It doesn’t help that back-rower Caelan Doris has been ruled out of their opening game due to concussion, while several stars, like Leinster wing James Lowe, are still settling.

As for +1200 title contenders Wales, they too will be missing a key man for the first two games after it was reported winger Josh Adams was suspended for a breach of quarantine protocols. The Cardiff Blues speedster attended a gender reveal family with family and was subsequently banned on the eve of the tournament:

Scotland—a +1600 dark horse—look to have evolved once more under coach Gregor Townsend and have their own share of new, exciting names emerging. They and +50000 outsiders Italy are the only participating teams still yet to win a Six Nations title, and that wait won’t end in 2021.

Provided France perform to their potential as a collective (and even if they don’t), scrum-half Antoine Dupont is guaranteed to star on an individual level. The No. 9 is a contender for the World Rugby Player of the year award, such is his vast quality, demonstrated by the fact he was named Player of the Tournament last year after France’s run to second. 

Irish legend Brian O’Driscoll and Scotland’s Stuart Hogg are the only players to have won the award two years running, but +800 joint-favorite Dupont is our pick to join that elite list in 2021.
