Argentina vs Scotland

It is down to the final test to decide the winner of this test series. Argentina made a dream start to Michael Cheika’s era as head coach when they won the first test but they were brought crashing back to earth with a thumping 23 point loss in the last match. The Pumas have made a whopping 11 changes from the last match while Scotland have made 8 changes for this match. It is understandable the home team making so many changes but why Scotland made eight changes will remain a mystery. The Pumas will have star forward Pablo Matera back to lead the team in the absence of regular skipper Montoya.

TIP: The visitors looked like a different team in the last match compared to the first test match and they will be looking to continue on their great form from the last match. Argentina are still experimenting with their side as the World Cup is just a year away. They will be glad to have former captain Agustin Creevy back with all his experience for this crunch match.The bookies have the Pumas as favourites for match and I’m tipping Scotland for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 2.20, Playabets 2.25 and Sunbet 2.20


Argentina vs Scotland

  • Scotland have won seven of the last eight matches against Argentina.
  • Scotland had their biggest ever away win against Argentina in the last match.

Latest results for both teams

Argentina lost 29-6 to Scotland in their last match.  


Scotland will want to repeat the dose of forward power that they exerted over Argentina in the second test. It remains to be seen if the visitors can again dominate at scrum time after making a raft of front row changes. Argentina have made brave selections like picking a debutant scrumhalf in this crucial match. Scotland on the other hand has called up Lions number nine Ali Price to guide them to a win. Argentina will need to be more positive in this match as they kicked away a lot of possession which played into Scotland’s hand. We are backing Scotland to win by 5 points.

  • Predictions and Odds in details

Both team rely on their rolling mauls to get them over the advantage line and this was one of the reasons for Scotland winning the last match. The Pumas pack will be stronger this week with both Matera and Creevy back as they are powerful ball carriers and are also very experienced. There is great odds on the Scotland upset win but if you looking for a safer bet then you should look at Scotland on the handicap.
