Wales v ScotlandWales v Scotland

The third match of the Six Nations Championship 2024 sees Wales v Scotland play each other on Saturday, the 3rd of February 2024. The match will take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. All of the action will kick off at 4.45 p.m.

The man in the middle will be Ben O'Keeffe from Zealand. A fun fact about Ben is that he is a qualified medical doctor in ophthalmology and co-founder of oDocs Eye Care, a social enterprise that aims to create medical technology to prevent blindness. Let's hope his decisions are 20/20 on Saturday lest the obvious jokes come flooding in. Assisting Mr O'Keeffe on the touch lines will be James Doleman and Angus Mabey, whilst Brendon Pickerill will have the honour of the TMO dungeon.

This match should be a good game to finish off the first week of the competition. It will be a crunch match: Wales have a lot to prove after a disastrous 2023 outing that saw them come fifth; Scotland will be eyeing up the possibility of going at least one better than their third-place finish from last year. I think this will be one to watch. Which of the Celts will be crowned Doddie Weir Cup champions for 2024? I think you best read the rest of my Wales v Scotland prediction to find out my winner.

🔍 Wales v Scotland Winner Prediction

This is going to be a tough challenge - especially with Wales having everything to prove whilst having lost some of their legends to retirement and Louis Rees Zammit to American Football. Will the young blood take on the Welsh mantle? Will the Scots leave the home crowd feeling blue? Let's break down some of the key predictors for this match.

  1. History: Wales and Scotland have played each other 129 times in rugby tests. Wales have won 75, Scotland have won 51, and there have also been three draws. This may seem to favour the Welsh, but Scotland did thump their rivals 35-7 in last year's Six Nations Championship. I would say there are arguments for both sides based on history.
  2. World rankings: It is a closely run race, but the rugby world rankings have Wales in eighth and Scotland in sixth. I think this is the first clear sign of a Scottish win.
  3. Home advantage: Playing at the Principality, you would imagine Wales would have a huge home advantage. They draw in enthusiastic crowds that, especially with the roof shut, create an immense level of noisy support. Unfortunately for the Welsh, however, their golden years seem to slip farther behind every year, so no matter how loud the fans sing their anthems, visitors are often ready for the occasion. Yes, there will be a slight advantage, but I imagine the away support will provide enough counter to minimise the effect.
  4. Weather: 11°C with clouds is about standard for this time of year. The weather should not give an advantage to either side.
  5. Game play: The first time that Warren Gatland took over as the Head Coach for Wales, he developed a system of game play in attack often called Warrenball. This system involved using a large forward to run up the middle of the field in short crashing runs. The players around whom this system was built, however, have since retired, so no right players for it, no Warrenball. Their play is now focused on moving the ball out wide, often aerially, to their talented wingers. Scotland, on the other hand, try to play fast rugby, attacking frequently. This can be risky as it can leave the Scots on the back foot when it does not come off. Scotland's defence can be a weak point, but as they take the attacking mentality, if the opposition scores, they believe they will put two on the board in return. Scotland's play relies on forwards winning set pieces and going forward in order to allow the backs to get quick ball. Out of the two styles of play, I think the Scots stand the better chance of putting together something worthy of the try line, so I think game play indicates a Scottish win.

No bookies have either team as favourites for the Six Nations title, but I think both nations will still believe they are still in with a shot - foolishly or otherwise. As for who will start their campaign the right way, I can not look past Scotland grabbing this one by 15 points.

✔️ Wales v Scotland Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Scotland to Win

We know that Scotland are my choice to win, but how are the odds looking? I can really see myself having a little flutter on the game with odds of Scotland to win at 1.80 at 1Bet. This would return a decent chunk of change for a winning bet, with €8 net gain for every €10 bet. As ever, though, remember to keep bets in your budget and to gamble responsibly!

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Scotland to Win (-5.5)

Compared to how the bookies see this one going, I think Scotland are going to storm this match. My prediction is for Gregor Townsend's men to stick at least a 15-point score difference on the board, so my pick for a handicap winner would be Scotland to win (-5.5) at 2.50 at LegendPlay Sports. That still gives me leeway of nine points, so you would only need Scotland to win by six or more points.
