All four of the Northern Hemisphere teams are facing a Series decider on Saturday in their respective matches.

It’s a thrilling climax to this burst of top international rugby betting, and Scotland will look to seal the deal against Argentina.

The Pumas landed the first blow, but a response last weekend by Scotland makes this a fascinating set-up.

Argentina Preview – Will Pumas fight back?

Argentina kicked off this series against Scotland with a fine victory.

It was a 26-18 win that the pumas had put on the board in Jujuy, really rattling the tourists.

But they were well below those levels in the second Test.

Scotland made a super-fast start in the second fixture which threw the Pumas off of their own game.

The defensive levels just were not there by the home side.

But going into this decisive Test, Argentina are the 20/23 odds-on favourites in rugby betting* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365).

We would imagine that Argentina comes back harder with a tougher physical edge on Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Scotland 1-5 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365)


In last year’s Rugby Championship, Argentina finished bottom of the heap with no points.

This is the first rugby match this year for Argentina, who lost to France and beat Italy in November last year on Tour.

In the last five meetings, Argentina have taken one victory against Scotland.

As this is a series decider, there are probably going to be some nerves around.

A Scotland +1.5 handicap is at 10/11 in rugby betting where the line is thin* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365).


Scotland Preview – Scots back in the hunt

There were much better intensity levels from Scotland last weekend as they fought back into the series.

That opening fixture was a pretty dreadful performance from the tourists.

The first half of the second Test wasn’t much better as it was really scrappy.

So really the only way was up.

Scotland were dominant in the second half in Salta in that second fixture.

They put four tries on the board in the match and scored 21 unanswered points after the break.

In the match outright, the win for Scotland on Saturday is a quote of even money* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365).

The result leaves Scotland at W2 L3 in their last five internationals.

Scotland hand full back Ollie Smith a debut in the decider on Saturday.

Grant Gilchrist, who was the captain for the first two matches, is out of the side with Hamish Watson taking the captaincy for the first time.

Ali Price returns to the starting fifteen because of experience.

In total Scotland make eight changes for Saturday from last weekend’s starting fifteen.

Last weekend Scotland did a great job in contact, slowing down the Pumas and denying them chances.

More of the same will be required.


Argentina vs Scotland Betting Advice

This should be a closely contested international, with Argentina licking their wounds after a poor show in Salta last weekend.

They are a physical side, so we expect this to be a big old scrap in the forward ranks.

But Scotland with the momentum, are the way to go at even money* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365).


Key Facts – Argentina vs Scotland Betting Tip

  • Argentina have lost four of their last five against Scotland
  • Argentina have won four of their last five international fixtures
  • Scotland are W2 L3 in their last five international fixtures


They did the basics much better last weekend and while the first 40 was scrappy and low-quality, superior fitness and quality got them over the line.

The differences off the bench that the Scots can bring are likely to be the deciding factor.

A Scotland 1-5 winning margin is our rugby tip at 9/2* (odds recorded 04:49 GMT on July 14th, 2022 at Bet365).
