Can Ireland Keep Hopes Alive At Murrayfield?
Bookies William Hill make Ireland their narrow (8/11) favourites to beat Scotland (11/8), when they meet at Murrayfield on Sunday. The handicap suggests it could hardly be closer giving Scotland just a two point head start. Brian O'Driscoll is once again the man that Ireland hope will make it onto the score sheet and William Hill offer 5/1 that O'Driscoll scores a try in an Ireland victory.
"We fully expect Scotland to make Ireland work for their points on Sunday but the odds and the money are on Ireland's side!" said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
