Ireland vs Scotland - Prediction, Betting Tips And Odds

Share this on

Both sides will be looking to comfortably navigate Pool A

The Rugby World Cup 2019 gets underway in real style amongst the Home Nations as Ireland take on the Scottish at the famous Yokohama Stadium on September 22. 

Both sides will be looking to comfortably navigate Pool A, with the Irish favoured to do so as Pool Winner at 2/9. That’s also the case with this game, with Paddy Power pricing the Irish at 1/3 favourites.

Ireland have much more experience in their squad, with 18 players within the Scottish side having never played World Cup rugby before.

Joe Schmidt does have selection headaches of his own though, Robbie Henshaw will be out of the opening fixture, although this will pave the way for Bundee Aki to continue his fine form in the green jersey. Keith Earls and Rob Kearney will however be available for selection.

Key Battle to Look Out For

Robbie Henshaw will be a huge loss for the Irish so that battle in the centre of the field will be key and something the Scots look to exploit.

Aki is no slouch though and one of the reasons Ireland now sit as the number one ranked teams in the world.  

Johnny Sexton will also be key for the Irish and if Scotland are going to get anything from the fixture, something coach Gregor Townsend has yet to achieve against this opponent, it’s going to come through the entire defence standing up and being counted rather than individual performances.

That’s what Townsend will be reliant upon and he’s had them working hard to overcome the Irish side, no matter what the conditions.

Most pundits are expecting Ireland, who are notoriously slow starters, to get the job done and all but confirm their place at the top of Pool A from kick off.  

Looking at Townsend’s record against Ireland with Scotland, the average score is 25-11, so we’d look towards the winning margin markets, with William Hill pricing Ireland between 11-15 points at 5/1.
