It has been a relief to see France restore some pride during the current Six Nations campaign, but we just feel Wales have the gameplan to upset Les Bleus.
Warren Gatland’s side like to keep the action going as much as possible and that could tire out the visitors, who rely more on size than speed.
A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds
Wales secured a second home win of the season when a much-changed line-up beat Italy 38-14, having opened up with an impressive 34-7 demolition of Scotland in Cardiff.
In between, the Dragons were unlucky to go down narrowly against England at Twickenham and also enjoyed plenty of positive moments in a 37-27 loss away to Ireland.
A bonus-point victory over France will guarantee them the runners-up spot and a fourth top-two position in the past seven seasons.
“It will be massive to finish the championship on a high and get that second place,” said Dragons lock Cory Hill.
“We know they will be a big, physical pack; we know France will come at us. But it is nice for us to have our last game at home and hopefully we will get that win.”
The hosts got off to a flying start versus Scotland and Italy here, so 31/50 they lead at half-time and full-time is another solid option from the Wales vs France odds.
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France could also finish as high as second in the Six Nations table after following up a 34-17 win over Italy with a 22-16 triumph against England in Paris.
Five kicks and a penalty try saw Les Bleus home versus the fallen champions and head coach Jacques Brunel is delighted with his side’s progress.
He beamed: “Our defence was remarkable and there was a lot of energy and will. We got a lot of good opportunities which we weren’t able to finish, but there’s lots to be happy with.
“We knew the physical challenge would be key and we controlled the ball and that upset England, they’re not used to that.
“I told them that if we won it would open up new and positive things. We’ve been criticised a lot, but we believe in the team.”
France were also the better team for long periods when losing 32-26 away to Scotland and went agonisingly close to toppling Ireland in their opener.
Les Bleus can sometimes suffer from discipline problems on the road, though, so 11/4 for the first scoring play to be a penalty kick for the home team completes our Wales vs France betting tips.
