Scotland will be searing after a one-point upset in their first week against Australia - so much so that I expect them to take out their full fury on Fiji. Will they be able to rally in front of a Murrayfield crowd demanding they deliver the goods this week or will the visitors be able to add insult to injury and come away with the glory? Let's take a look at what may lie ahead, alongside some options for rugby betting action.

Having claimed two-thirds of the wins, and having smashed the opposition in the last fixture 54-17, previous fixtures seem to point towards a win for Scotland. The history books don't show total domination for the Northern Hemisphere side, however, so perhaps Fiji could have some fight in them yet.

It is interesting to note that Scotland have dropped from sixth last week to ninth this week after losing 15-16 to Australia. This could be telling for the mentality of the Scottish, going into this match. Then again, they are still three places to the good compared to the Pacific islanders, and I think it could be proved why on the field.

✔️ Scotland vs Fiji Team Previews

One of the best indicators for any team's performance in a rugby match is to look at recent form. Let's see how both sides have coped of late.

🦄 Scotland Autumn Nations Series Team Preview

Scotland looked troubled against Australia in last week's match without the likes of Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg, but their performances in the Summer Internationals and in the Six Nations, albeit nothing fantastic, are seen as passing grades. I feel if Gregor Townsend can motivate his men into repeating the performances of earlier in the year, Scotland will look good for this outing.

🌴 Fiji Autumn Nations Series Preview

One of the major series for the Fijians 15s was the Pacific Nations Cup 2022. Whilst they played some hard-fought matches, they only managed to scrape one win against Tonga, 36-0. This in itself was an impressive performance, but one swallow does not a summer make. I think Fiji's recent form is not telling of a victory at Murrayfield this weekend.

🏉 Style of Play: How Scotland vs Fiji Rugby Differs

Scotland are a team that like to compete at the break-down, trying to force an unstructured game upon their opponents. The Fijians, on the other hand, like a fast, flowing game of rugby - unpredictable, high tempo, and extremely exciting to watch.

Both teams will present competing styles for this clash, but I think if Scotland can keep their game tight and the Fijians in low gear, they could come off the better out of the two styles.

🕵️ Our Scotland vs Fiji Prediction Winner

Most indicators point to a Scotland win. Were this a game of rugby sevens, I may be inclined to back Fiji, but in the 15s, I think this is going only one way. I am hesitant to say this is going to be a big win for Scotland, given their choice to drop key players for the Autumn Nations Series and their performance last week, but I am nevertheless confident that the home crowd will have a happy result on Saturday.
