Scotland Preview – Can Scots build on opening success?

This is an important game now for Scotland’s Six Nations 20221 ambitions.

Last weekend they went to Twickenham and landed a surprise victory over England to claim the Calcutta Cup.

That was their first win there since the 1980s.

So that was some start from them to the campaign and now the pressure will be on them to not let that victory go to waste, by losing this one.

That was such a good win for Scotland last weekend.

They met England on a physical and tactical level to which their opponents could not respond.

Can Scotland back it up at Murrayfield?

In the match outright for the Six Nations rugby betting, Scotland are the 4/9 odds-on favourites* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).

At the end of last season’s campaign, Scotland went down to Wales and collected a victory there.

Now with confidence sky-high, this should be a great opportunity for them to make the most of.

Our betting prediction:
Scotland 1-10 winning margin

(odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021)


That was a 14-10 win in Wales that Scotland took last season.

That ended a three-match losing streak home and away against the Welsh.

Scotland lost their last home game against Wales in the competition 11-8 in 2019.

The head to head is interesting as Scotland have claimed only one victory in their last six home fixtures against Wales.

But in the current standings, Scotland looks to be in a better place than Wales at the moment.

But they have lost Cameron Redpath to injury, who was brilliant on his tournament debut last weekend.

A Scotland -5 handicap is at even money in rugby betting* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).


Wales Preview – Can Wales build on their positive start?

Wales were another team that upset the odds on the opening weekend of the 2021 Six nations.

They got themselves a really hard-earned home win over Ireland having started as underdogs.

That was a 21-16 home success by the Welsh.

After such a poor 2020 in which they had lost six games on the bounce at one point, that was just the tonic that the Welsh needed.

There is a bigger story to that though as Ireland were a man short from the 14th minute in that fixture when Peter O’Mahoney was given a red card.

Wales managed to take advantage of that.

In the match tonight for Six Nations rugby betting, Wales are the 19/10 underdogs for their trip to Murrayfield* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).

Wales do get Liam Williams back which is a big factor for them, but the squad as a whole has been hit by injury.

Williams will go straight onto the wing for the fixture.

A Wales +5 handicap for rugby betting is at even money in this contest* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).

While they got the win last weekend it was only by a five-point margin after all against the 14-men of Ireland.

So arguably they could have done a lot better with that.

That was the second Six Nations win only for head coach Wayne Pivac (played six).

At the end of the day, a win is a win and this gives Wales a chance to blow the Championship a little wider open.


Scotland vs Wales Betting Advice

Wales have been hit with injury problems and on top of that, they still struggled to get the better of 14-man Ireland last weekend.

They don’t look the most confident of sides and we can see them being on the back foot at Murrayfield.

If Scotland comes at them with the level of ferocity that they showed in England, then we see Scotland coming out on top.

The Scotland -3.5 handicap at 8/11 is our main selection* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).


Key Facts – Scotland vs Wales Betting Tip

  • Scotland beat England on the opening weekend
  • Scotland won in Wales last season
  • Wales have won four of their last five visits to Murrayfield


It’s a shame for Scotland that they are missing Cameron Redpath after such a scintillating Six Nations debut last weekend.

His partnership with Finn Russell looks so promising. But still, Scotland’s confidence and self-belief should be through the roof.

A Scotland 1-10 winning margin at 17/10 looks a reasonable betting proposition for the match* (odds taken 21:34 GMT February 11th, 2021).
