Scotland vs Argentina rugby

The Scots are back for the rugby again this week, taking on Los Pumas at home at Murrayfield. This Scotland vs Argentina test will be a replay of the Summer Internationals 2022 series, but for the home side, they will be hoping to dish out a particularly glacial plate of revenge after losing 1-2 in South America. Will they deliver a hammer-blow to the Argentinians or will the visitors defend their rugby crown and further entrench themselves as a top-10 nation? Let's take a look at the signs and a few ideas for rugby betting on Saturday?

📜 History of Scotland vs Argentina

1990 was when the first Scotland vs Argentina test took place, and since then, there have been a total of 21 matches. Let's take a look at who has been most dominant according to the history books.

Well, that's almost as even as you can get and doesn't give much away in terms of an indicator. We may have more luck if we analyse more-recent results.

This makes writing my Scotland vs Argentina rugby prediction all the trickier. Do I focus on Scotland nabbing three wins out of the last five or on Argentina winning two out of three games this year alone? For me, I don't think history can split the two, so we will have to look at some of the other key indicators.

At least looking at the world rankings gives an easier indication of a potential winner than history. With Argentina sitting pretty in sixth compared to the Scots in ninth, we may start to think this may go the way of Los Pumas. Perhaps, however, we need one more vital clue before we see which team in blue will carry home the bragging rights.

✔️ Scotland vs Argentina: Recent Form of the Teams

With the Scots having played three matches thus far and the South Americans having seen out two, we have a lot that we can analyse to determine our Scotland vs Argentina winner. Let's break down the recent form of both nations in this year's Autumn Nations Series.

🦄 Matches Recap: Scotland Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

Scotland had a dismal start to their Autumn Nations Series 2022 campaign with a disappointing one-point loss against Australia in week one. Thankfully, they were able to turn the tide the weekend following their heartbreak with a well-deserved 28-12 win against Fiji. Further woe fell upon the Scots, however, when they succumbed to a rather meagre New Zealand performance in week three after having had the lead for a good majority of the match. Scotland know they are up there with the best, but recent matches haven't shown off their underlying quality. Will this week prove that they won't be simply a one-trick pony for the competition? It's difficult to see at this stage. Let's move on to Argentina.

🌞 Matches Recap: Argentina Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

Argentina have been a mixed bag this year, notching up one win and one loss for their Autumn Nations Series so far. I would say that with a win against England, 29-30 and a not-far-behind loss against Wales, 20-13, the new Los Pumas' coach, Michael Cheika will be expecting them to get the big W on Saturday. As such, I would say on recent matches, this may look like a win for the visitors.

🌦️ Weather Conditions at Murrayfield, Edinburgh

Water, water, every where is the forecast for Murrayfield on Saturday: five degrees and with patchy rain. This should favour the Scottish, considering they are used to playing in less-than-ideal conditions. This could be an indicator of a win for Scotland, albeit a drenched, muddy one.

🕵️ My Scotland vs Argentina Prediction Winner

Given the split history between these two teams, I can not understate how close I think this Scotland vs Argentina test will be. There are indicators that suggest both sides could come out ahead, so the question is what do I believe will be the crucial difference? To save being a fence-sitter, I am going to go with Argentina - controversial as that may be for the bookies. Argentina have had the better run of form recently and have already proved how they are able to despatch Scotland earlier this year. This is nonetheless going to be a nail-biter for both nations, and I think it will only be a scraped win of three points.

My rugby prediction: Argentina to win.

💶 Scotland vs Argentina Betting Tips

I have not gone with the favourites to win this one, so I think anybody looking to have a flutter would see Scotland vs Argentina Betting odds of 2.41 for Argentina to win consideration-worthy, should they agree with my rugby prediction. For those that want to lengthen their odds further, there are also a few other games this weekend that could be combined into one accumulator: Italy vs South Africa and Wales vs Georgia, to name a couple.
