Next up is a trip to take on Scotland at Murrayfield. The Scots are enjoying something of a resurgence all of their own but Paddy Power, official betting partner of the Welsh Rugby Union, make the Welsh 4/9 favourites to claim victory and 10/11 to win with a handicap of -5 points.
If the upturn in recent form wasn't enough cause for optimism, Wales's recent record against their Celtic cousins should boost the confidence. Saturday's visitors have won nine of their last 10 meetings with the Scots and have been beaten just twice at Murrayfield in the six games since the Five Nations became Six. The stats point towards a Wales victory.
Scotland will no doubt be tough opponents once again, but bizarrely, these matches have rarely been especially close when the final whistle blows. The closest they've finished in their last 10 matches was seven points and across Wales's nine victories over that spell, their average winning margin has been 14 points. That suggests the Alternative Handicap of Wales to win -14 points at 13/5 is worth a look along with the Winning Margin of Wales by 11-16 points at 6/1.
When it comes to picking out a First Tryscorer bet, one name and one record stands out from all the rest. Already in his young career, Leigh Halfpenny has been the scourge of the Scots. In three matches against Scotland, the full back has scored an impressive four tries. He's 12/1 to score the first try on Saturday and he's 10/3 to score a try at anytime. Given his eye-catching history against the Scots, it looks well worth a shot.
