Wales Preview – Can Wales lift themselves?

Wales had a super tough introduction to the Autumn Internationals last weekend as they were heavily beaten by New Zealand.

After trailing 18-6 at the break, Wales went on to suffer a 54-16 loss against the All Blacks.

That has left Wales with one victory in their last five internationals.

The lone success in that sequence of form was against Canada in August.

Since then they have drawn with Argentina, have lost to the Puma and then New Zealand.

In the match outright for rugby betting the win for Wales is at a quote of 3/1* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT on November 4th, 2021).

Earlier this year there was a successful campaign for them in the Six Nations.

Wales pushed the title challenge to the wire by winning their first four matches, before getting toppled by France.

The question is now whether or not they can get themselves back on track?

Following this match, Wales will also face Fiji and then Australia in the Autumn Internationals.

Our betting prediction:
South Africa 6-10 winning margin

The last time that Wales and South Africa met was in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup.

That was a tense affair, with the Springboks completing the match 19-16 ahead.

That snapped a four-match winning streak that Wales had been on against this opponent.

The last time that Wales hosted South Africa was in the 2018 Autumn Internationals.

The Welsh ran out 20-11 victories.

A Wales +6 handicap is at a quote of 5/4 for rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT on November 4th, 2021).


South Africa Preview – Can the Springboks get back on track?

South Africa are the reigning world champions having beaten England in the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final.

Things didn’t go too smoothly for them in the Rugby World Championship this year.

They opened with back to back victories over Argentina, before losing their two against Australia and then one against New Zealand.

The Boks did finish with a flourish, beating New Zealand 31-29 in their final match of the Championship.

It has been a big year for them, having won a Series at home against the British & Irish Lions in August.

Those were three fairly poor matches in terms of excitement, South Africa opting for pragmatic power.

It is worth noting that South Africa are not at full strength.

They are missing their two big stars.

Neither Fak de Klerk nor superstar winger Cheslin Kolbe are on international duty for the Autumn Internationals.

In the match outright, South Africa are 4/11 odds-on for the victory* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT on November 4th, 2021).

South Africa are always a tough, physical and gritty side to play against and without the pace of De Klerk and Kolbe, you would expect more of the same from them.

This is their first match since finishing the Rugby Championship in early October.

South Africa did go into that British & Irish Lions Series completely cold.

They had only one match played between their 2019 World Cup Final success and the opening match of the Lions’ series in August 2021.

But they still came out on top. They found a way to win and can’t be counted out of things on Saturday.


Wales vs South Africa Betting Advice

The victory for South Africa takes preference for this one, but without their superstars, narrow margins are probably going to be in play.

South Africa will bring a lot of power to the table with them and will likely take on Wales up front.

The South Africa -5 handicap at 10/11 is the rugby betting pick* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT on November 4th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wales vs South Africa Betting Tip

  • Wales have won four of their last five matches against South Africa
  • Wales lost to South Africa in the 2019 World Cup semi finals
  • South Africa beat New Zealand in their latest match


The bigger player is going to be the South Africa 6-10 winning margin at 5/1* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT on November 4th, 2021).

The tourists would probably be happy with that in their opening match of the Autumn Internationals.

Even if they kick and grind their way to victory. Wales may be feeling it a bit after last weekend’s routing.
