Read below our England vs Ireland betting preview with predictions, betting tips, team news, enhanced odds, exclusive betting promotions and no deposit free bets on this weekend's 6 Nations matches!

ENGLAND vs IRELAND BETTING PREVIEW 

England have lost 3 of their last 5 RBS Six Nations games, stretching back to the final game of last season, after defeats in Scotland and France over the last month. Their campaign started well enough with a comfortable win in Italy and a hard working victory over Wales in their only home game so far. After an outstanding record over his first two years in charge, manager Eddie Jones now faces his first major test as England boss after successive defeats. Anyway, England haven’t lost at Twickenham since the disastrous 2015 World Cup campaign.They  have not lost against Ireland at Twickenham since February 2010.

Jones has made significant changes for this match with Owen Farrell switching to fly-half and George Ford dropped. Richard Wigglesworth, who plays alongside Farrell at London club Saracens, starts at scrumhalf instead of Danny Care. Anthony Watson retains his place at full-back with Mike Brown confined to the bench for another week. Back-rowers Nathan Hughes and Courtney Lawes have been ruled out of the game with knee injuries they sustained against France.

Ireland has been already crowned as this year’s Six Nations champions, after England's defeat in France (22-16) last time out, and will have a shot at a Grand Slam this weekend having won all the 4 matches played so far in the competition. They are playing with speed, force and flair and have just set a new record of 11 consecutive wins with the 28-8 victory over Scotland last time out. Anyway, the Irishmen have an awful record in recent direct encounters. In the last eight games between the two sides, England have won six and lost just twice.

Ireland prop Cian Healy has recovered from a shoulder injury and should be fit to start at Twickenham. Peter O'Mahony and Rob Kearney have been passed fit too. The Kiwi coach Joe Schmidt has made one change, with Iain Henderson - the man who ended England’s Slam hopes 12 months ago with a try in Dublin - coming into the second row in place of Devin Toner, who drops to the replacements' bench.
