As expected, Wales struggled to make much of an impact in their Six Nations 2022 opener.

They fell to an impressive-looking Ireland side and will now seek redemption at home against Scotland this weekend.

Scotland will have plenty of wind in their sails after beating England at Murrayfield in the Calcutta Cup.

Wales Preview – Can Wales rise to the occasion?

Reigning Six Nations champions Wales were handed a crushing 29-7 defeat at the hands of Ireland in this year’s opener.

Wales, who are not at full strength because of injuries, were never in the match.

Can they use the boost of home advantage in Cardiff on the weekend to get a victory?

In the match outright for Six Nations rugby odds, Wales are the 13/10 underdogs* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Wales took a dramatic 1-point margin win at Murrayfield in last season’s Six Nations on their way to the title.

They do have the upper hand over the Scots in the most recent meetings.

Wales have won three of the last four Six Nations duels with Scotland.

But are they carrying the kind of overall current form that is going to be good enough to bring down the buoyant Scottish team?

Wales are W2 D1 L4 in their last seven internationals going back to last year’s Autumn internationals.

In those internationals, they failed to beat Argentina twice (D1 L1) before responding to beat Fiji and then Australia.

Our betting prediction:
Scotland 1-7 winning margin

* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power)


In 2020 when Wales last hosted Scotland in the Six Nations, they suffered a 14-10 defeat.

But that bucked a massive trend.

Wales had won the previous eight Six Nations meetings with the Scots in their own backyard.

The Wales +3 handicap for Six Nations rugby betting is at even money* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Looking at the head to head record, this is perhaps the one fixture that Wales could target to try and get something going in.

Wales make four changes to their starting line up with Jac Morgan, Owen Watkin and Alex Cuthbert and Ross Moriarty all coming in.


Scotland Preview – Scotland will fancy their chances in Cardiff

A performance of resilience, grit and opportunity-taking saw Scotland take a win over England at Murrayfield last weekend.

While they did not create a lot of offensive chances against England, their defence was superb.

They may get some better opportunities to express themselves in a more open game against Wales.

In the match outright for Six Nations rugby betting, Scotland are a quote of 8/11 to get the score* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Scotland have now won six of their last seven international fixtures, so have plenty of reason to be confident.

Their win over England was their third straight Six Nations victory, having beaten Italy and France at the end of the previous campaign.

This is going to be a totally different type of game to what they had against England.

They have thrown together a Scotland are a quote of 8/11 from Edinburgh to take on Wales up front.

But then they gained a line breaker in the back line of Sione Tuipulotu in the centre.

Scotland’s last victory in Cardiff happened in 2002 so it’s been a while since they quieted the crowd there.

Their 2020 away victory over the Welsh was in a match hosted at Llanelli.

But Scotland do look to be well equipped for this latest bid to end their winless streak in Cardiff.

If Scotland can take any kind of early sting out of Wales, they have the better options off the bench to close out the match.

Pushing a bigger line of a Scotland -8 handicap returns a quote of 7/4* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power).


Wales vs Scotland Betting Advice

Last weekend Scotland won without much possession in their match against England.

They didn’t really get England under too much pressure, but they took their chances when they came. Possession should be easier to come by for them in Cardiff.

Scotland do look like they believe in themselves and the Scotland -3 handicap is the first pick of the Six Nations rugby betting at even money* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power)


Key Facts – Wales vs Scotland Betting Tip

  • Wales are W8 L1 in their last nine Six Nations home matches against Scotland
  • Wales have claimed only two wins in their last seven internationals
  • Scotland are W6 L1 in their last seven internationals


Scotland look the better equipped of the two nations to go and put the win on the board. Especially with help from the bench.

Wales are still trying to cope with a lot of enforced changes and they barely laid a glove on the Irish last weekend.

They are likely going to be able to keep it closer against Scotland this weekend, but it is the Scotland 1-10 margin pick for rugby betting that we are pulling for at 9/4* (odds recorded 01:18 GMT on February 11th, 2022 at Paddy Power).
