Sunday, the 10th of September will see South Africa v Scotland for the second test of Pool B in the Rugby World Cup 2023. The match will take place at the Stade de Marseille, with kick-off at 4.45 p.m. IST.

The officials for the day will be Angus Gardner, Nika Amashukeli, and Jordan Way, with Ben Whitehouse as the TMO.

After successful Summer Nations Series campaigns on both sides, I think fans from either side of this clash will be excited for their nation's first run-out in the competition. The Springboks and Scots have played each other in 28 international tests since their first meeting in 1906, wherein South Africa have won 23 tests and Scotland have won five times. In their most recent encounter, the Springboks beat Scotland 30-15. Will the Rainbow Nation claim another victim on their way to further Rugby World Cup glory or will this be the start of a historic year for the Scottish thistle? Let's get on with my South Africa v Scotland prediction.

🔍 South Africa v Scotland Winner Prediction

Scotland have had a fantastic year, as far as fans are concerned, and I think their keen supporters can be forgiven for thinking they may see their side reach new heights in this year's RWC. Do I share their sentiment and think this will be the first step on an epic rugby journey? Fans of the 'Boks will be happy with my answer. With both recent and long-term form, current world ranking positions of second and fifth respectively, and the fact that South Africa will be defending their title this year, I think it will be bad news for Scotland by 13 points.

✔️ South Africa v Scotland Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: South Africa to Win

My money would be on the Springboks to win - at least if the odds were longer. For me, South Africa to win at 1.21 at LeoVegas Sports, whilst not the shortest odds of the first eight matches, don't do it for me.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: South Africa to Win (-11.5)

The bookies have odds right in my sights for this one, as I'm predicting a South African win of 13 points. For that reason, my best option would be South Africa to win (-11.5) at 1.90 at Betway, which would give you a 190% return if the Springboks go on to glory by 12 points or more. Just remember that whilst I may have a good record with my predictions, I am no fortune teller and there are no guarantees in rugby, so gamble responsibly!
