After a thrilling and disappointing draw against Argentina last time out, Wales will be looking to return to winning ways.

Can they get the better of the Pumas this time around? They are shaking things up with head coach Wayne Pivac making seven changes to the starting lineup.

This isn’t the strongest of Welsh squads, with some of their key men on the road with the Lions and injury problems have stacked up too.

Wales Preview – Can Wales finish the season on a positive note?

This is the final fixture of three for Wales this summer as they try and get one over on the Pumas.

Wales will be playing their 14th Test international in the last nine months on the weekend.

After opening this summer action with a comfortable win over Canada, they were brought down to earth in a draw against Argentina.

Earlier this year Wales landed the Six Nations title but were denied the Grand Slam by France in the final round of action.

For Saturday’s game against Argentina, Wales are the 4/5 narrow favourites in the outright market for rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).

Even though Wales are not at full strength, they will have been disappointed by their draw with the Pumas last weekend.

Wales were up against a team that played with a man short for the last 50 minutes of the contest.

Wayne Pivac’s men couldn’t pick off the committed Pumas, however. They went in at the break 13-6 down.

Our betting prediction:
Wales -1.5 handicap

* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021)


Will Wales be able to finish with a flourish? The Welsh have a lot of key players, like Alun Wyn Jones on Tour with the Lions at the moment.

There are more players that Pivac has unavailable through injury as well. So the Welsh are relying on depth.

Wales are undefeated in their last nine internationals against Argentina, since losing to the South American in 2006.

The bookmakers are expecting another tight contest between these two.

Wales, who have home advantage, are a quote of Evens for a -1 handicap in rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).


Argentina Preview – Can the Pumas spring a surprise?

You always know what you are going to get from an Argentina rugby performance.

They will work hard up front and try to disrupt opponents as much as possible.

The fact that they were down to 14 men last weekend after just 29 minutes against Wales, and still didn’t lose, should have given them great confidence.

In the match tonight for Rugby Betting on Saturday there is a quote of 11/10 on the win for Argentina* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).

They opened this tour with a 24-17 win against Romania.

That was the first game that Argentina had played since December last year in the Rugby Championship.

The Pumas took a W1 D2 L1 record in their four matches in last year’s Rugby Championship.

The win was a massive shock victory over New Zealand and they drew both matches against Australia.

So they are capable and are not to be totally dismissed on the weekend.

Argentina are likely to be even better having had more time on the pitch under their belt.

Can they take this decider at the Millenium Stadium?

Whichever way we see this International Tour match we see it being tight. Were Wales surprised by how hot Argentina arrived?

Very probably.

An Argentina +1.5 handicap is at a quote of 4/5 in rugby betting for the weekend* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).


Wales vs Argentina Betting Advice

Argentina are probably going to give another good account of themselves in Cardiff on the weekend.

Despite coming in relatively cold, they played very well and may have caught Wales on the hop a little bit.

There is a reasonable chance that they will get close again, but we just favour the Wales win at 4/5* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wales vs Argentina Betting Tip

  • Wales and Argentina draw the first Test 20-20
  • Wales won the 2021 Six Nations
  • Argentina beat New Zealand in last year’s Rugby Championship


Wales head coach Wayne Pivac will likely have seen what he can tweak for this next test.

He doesn’t have a full squad to choose from, nothing like that.

But we would think that the home side can do enough to cover a -1.5 handicap at 11/10* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT on July 15th, 2021).

This is the final match at the end of a very long season. Wales may be able to finish with a flourish.
