Scotland versus Australia rugby Scotland versus Australia rugby

The second match of the Autumn Nations Series sees Scotland take on The Wallabies. With the way these two sides have been playing lately, this should be an interesting match, with the Hopetoun Cup, established in 1998, up for grabs. Will it be a hearty home match for the Murrayfield mob or will the touring Aussies assert an agitating answer? Read on for my insight and tips on rugby betting.

📜 History of Scotland vs Australia

It is always good when writing any prediction to have a look at how both sides have fared against each other over the years. The first Scotland vs Australia match took place in 1927, and the test has happened 33 times in total: Australia taking the W 21 times and Scotland grabbing 12.

From the above, you may be inclined to give the win to Australia, but let's take a look at the last three matches to see if we can't discover something to the contrary.

It would seem that recent times tell a different tale to that of further past, then. I would therefore argue that this looks closer to a victory for the Scottish, albeit a close one. Are there any other clues that Scotland look up to the challenge of paper, though?

Sixth-place Scotland by no means looks the unbeatable team compared to ninth-place Australia, but this still shows that world rugby deems Scotland the more likely to start their Autumn Nations Series 2022 campaign in sweeter style.

🌦️ Weather Conditions at Murrayfield, Edinburgh

Stereotypical as it may be for someone from the UK, I feel it pertinent to mention the weather. It is a key factor in rugby and can have a huge influence on the game. We are talking about the Autumn Nations Series in Scotland, in October, so the long-range forecast is that it will be cold and raining. Sure, teams from the Southern Hemisphere like Australia and New Zealand train and play in their own kind of wet conditions, but we are talking about autumnal Scotland here, and the ball can be like a wet bar of soap on the best of rainy days. In this case, I believe that the weather will favour the Scottish.

🕵️ Our Scotland vs Australia Prediction Winner

My gut feeling and unconscious bias tells me to bet on Australia for this one and to expect something in the region of a seven-point margin. Having been in the game of writing rugby predictions for some time, however, I no longer favour my gut and instead look to my research for my winner. In this case, I feel that this will be a fourth victory in a row for Scotland.

💶 Scotland vs Australia Betting Tips

If you were going to pick a winner, my feeling would be to bet on Scotland to win this 2022 Autumn Nations Series match. The bookies are giving decent enough odds for the match, and you could consider the a close winning margin if you fancy longer odds.
