The Six Nations 2024 returns for round four for Italy vs Scotland. The action will kick off 2.15 p.m. on the 9th of March.

Angus Gardner will be the referee for this one, with Adam Leal and Karl Dickson assisting from the touch lines. Our TMO for the day will be Marius van der Westhuizen.

Most rugby fans might normally write off this one from the start as a win for Scotland, but with Italy's drawn match against France next week, gli Azzurri will be in good form as they return to a roaring home crowd. Who will grab the W on Saturday? Let us find out with my Italy vs Scotland prediction.

🔍 Italy vs Scotland Winner Prediction

Many are expecting another wooden-spoon-worthy performance from Italy, but could there be another surprise on the cards from Italy? Let us dive into the key indicators of how this game may play out.

History

Both sides have faced each other a total of 36 times. Gli Azzurri have managed to eke out 8 wins in that time, but the Scots have dominated the history books 36. If that was not enough, the away side cruised to a win of 26-14 in last year's competition, so things are not looking up for the Italians.

Italy v England24-27
Ireland v Italy36-0
France v Italy13-13
Scotland MatchesResult
Wales v Scotland26-27
Scotland v France16-20
Scotland v England30-21

Two losses and a draw is not a great record for Italy - especially compared to Scotland's two wins and a loss. Italy have not played their worst in this tournament, but the fact they have not managed a single victory thus far does not bode well for them.

World Rankings

Italy are in 11th in the world standings, but that says very little compared to Scotland's 6th position. This seems another nail in the coffin for gli Azzurri.

Home Advantage

The Stadio Olimpico will have a few cheery home fans on Saturday, but I can not imagine there will be enough support to drum up enough resistance on Saturday. I imagine the home advantage may somewhat narrow the final score, but I do not think it will overcome the besieging Scottish.

Weather

The long term forecast is for 18°C and intermittent sun. These should be fairly steady conditions that I feel will favour no side more than the other.

Game Play Styles

Italy are predominantly known for their forward play of trying to dominate set pieces and using larger ball carriers to create attacking chances. Nowadays, however, they have adapted their style so that they are as competent with throwing the ball wide as they are at bashing up defensive lines.

The Scots still favour backs play, led by their key playmaker, Finn Russell. They are able to create exciting chances around the park and are easily able to bring in top try scorers like Duhan van der Merwe into the play.

I think both teams will bring exciting styles of rugby on Saturday, but out of the two of them, I think Gregor Townsend's men will have the greater development and flair to see them to points to the good at the end of 80 minutes.

Winner Summary

Italy have certainly come along in recent times, but will they have enough to thwart the tartan army? I do not think so. I expect we will see a tighter game than you may do from visiting Memory Lane, but I think Scotland will still grab a comfortable 12-point win at the final whistle.

🏉 Scotland to win by 12 points!

✔️ Italy vs Scotland Betting Tips

Now we know how I am expecting Saturday to go, let us take a look at a few betting options for Italy vs Scotland.

1️⃣ Match Winner: Scotland to Win

It is nice to see the bookies going for something a little lengthier than their usual next-to-nothing odds, but would I go for Scotland to win at odds of 1.19 at Betiton? I am not sure I would be interested in anything less than 1.20 for this match, but that is just my personal preference.

2️⃣ Asian Handicap Winner: Scotland (-11.5)

I think there is a lot of potential in the handicap betting options, and with my prediction of a 12-point win to Scotland in place, I would be happy to back them (-11.5 points) at odds of 1.94 at All British Sports. Remember that there is a lot more risk involved with this bet, however, so definitely remember to gamble responsibly!
