The Welsh need a big bounceback performance as they were played off the park against Australia last weekend in a crushing defeat. The Welsh lost 32-8 and the scoreline could have been bigger against them were it not for some desperate last ditch defending and some fluffs by the Australians in good attacking positions. The scoreline probably should have been a lot worse for the Welsh. So a tough start for Wales then in the Autumn Internationals but they go as 1/2 favourites at Paddy Power to land the win over the Pumas on Saturday. Wales weren’t at their strongest against Australia and they get back Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones for this latest test, with Jamie Roberts dropping to the bench. Six changes in all will be made from the starting fifteen last weekend by interim coach Robert Howley. They certainly need to improve their defensive output because it was pretty poor against the Wallabies. Argentina warmed up last weekend with a 54-20 win over Japan and of course they have been playing a lot of rugby lately having come off the back of the Rugby Championship campaign. They won just one of their six matches in the competition this year but they did manage to actually outscore Australia and South Africa in total points put on the board. They had by far and away the worst defensive record though. Argentina’s lone win came over South Africa. So they aren’t exactly a huge threat at the moment and they are trailing the head to head against Wales 5-10. The last time they met was back in 2013 when the Welsh ran out huge 40-6 winners on the day and the momentum really is with Wales who have won four of the last five meetings between the two. Wales are a price of 1/2 to take the win on Saturday with Argentina at 17/10 for the win. From their previous meetings, Wales have averaged 28 points per game against the Pumas, while in return Argentina have averaged 23 against Wales. So there have been pretty high scoring games between these two and the average points difference in meetings is only the five points in favour of Wales. So that means you can probably push the handicap line a bit in this one. An Argentina +5 is a price of 10/11 for example at Paddy Power.
