After beating England in their Six Nations Championship opener, Scotland missed the boat with a defeat to Wales in their follow up.

That means that they are going to need to come up with something special against France on the weekend to keep themselves in the title race.

France have looked powerful so far with back to back wins under their belt, and they will turn up at Murrayfield as the match favourites.

Scotland Preview – Can Scotland defy the odds?

Scotland were full of optimism after their opening home win of the 2022 Six Nations against England.

But that was quickly deflated as they lost, as match favourites to Wales in their second match.

Scotland never came out of their shell in Cardiff instead of asserting control against a depleted Welsh line-up.

Now Scotland need to come up with a win against France on the weekend to get back in the title race.

In the match outright, Scotland are the 5/2 underdogs for the win* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at Betfred).

They do have some home form against France, which is a positive for them.

Scotland’s last home loss to France in the Six Nations was in 2014.

Home and away they have beaten the French in the last two meetings in the championship.

Our betting prediction:
France 11-20 winning margin

Including International Friendly fixtures, Scotland are W3 L1 in their last four against the French.

That is a W4 L1 record in their last five at home against France in all formats.

Scotland have won all but two of their last eight internationals now.

One was against world champions South Africa in last year’s Autumn Internationals and then the 20-17 reverse against Wales recently.

The loss against the Springboks is the only home defeat that Scotland have suffered in their last six.

But if that is dialled into the Six Nations only, then Scotland are W2 L2 in their last four at Murrayfield.


France Preview – Les Bleus to maintain 100% record?

It has been two wins from two so far for France in this season’s Six Nations.

They are looking like the ones to beat.

France opened their campaign with an expected romp against Italy, before passing a much bigger test in their second match.

The French came away with a victory over Ireland at the Stade de France, holding off a late rally by the Irish.

The match win for France in Six Nations betting is at a quote of 2/5* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at Betfred)

France looks like one of the best in the world at the moment.

They have a huge pack with pace running through their back line as well, they can do damage to teams on all fronts.

France have some big momentum with their overall form, now being on a five-match winning streak.

In each of those victories they tallied at least 29 points on the scoreboard.

Three of France’s last four wins, including a success over New Zealand, saw them put at least 37 points on the board.

They look such a powerful unit and a France -7 handicap is at even money* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at Betfred).

France may not have had the best of times against Scotland in recent years, but they have the tools to dismantle the Scots this time around.


Scotland vs France Betting Advice

While Scotland were pumped up for their home win over England at the start of this campaign, it was a very different effort from them in Wales.

In neither match did they see much of the ball, and their attacking capabilities looked really limited in Cardiff.

France are going to roll into Murrayfield and likely take a win. The France -7 handicap is the first rugby betting pick at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at Betfred).
