Match prediction 30 of 48 of our Rugby World Cup 2023 betting series.

scotland-v-romania-prediction scotland-v-romania-prediction

Scotland will take on Romania in Pool B on the 30th of September at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille. This Rugby World Cup 2023 match is scheduled to kick off at 20:00 GMT, so make sure you have a cup of tea and some biscuits ready in plenty of time.

The man in the middle for this clash will be England's Wayne Barnes, while the touch judges will be Andrew Brace and Chris Busby from Ireland. The man tasked with solving any inconspicuous activity via the TMO will be New Zealand's Brendon Pickerill.

Scotland and Romania have met on the rugby field a total of 13 times, three of which have been at the Rugby World Cup in 1987, 2007, and 2011. Scotland have won 11 of these matches, while Romania have picked up just the two wins. History clearly favours the Scots, but will Romania impale Scottish hopes and dreams? You can find out by reading my Scotland vs Romania prediction.

💯 Scotland v Romania Betting Odds Rugby World Cup

I am going to start this rugby prediction of mine by checking out the rugby betting odds that five of the best UK bookmakers are offering for three common markets. If you want to find out more about any bookmakers that are mentioned on this page, then simply click on their image in one of the tables, and you will be taken to our bookmaker reviews.

🥇 Scotland v Romania Match Winner Odds

Like the other two matches on Saturday, this is one is also expected to be a pretty one-sided affair. After looking at the odds, to be quite honest, I would not bother myself with them - there is little money to be made from putting on Scotland to win, while putting your cash on Romania is a risk that is just not worth it. Nevertheless, I know that some people still might want to place a match winner bet, so below are the odds.


➕ Scotland v Romania Handicap 3-Way Odds

In the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup, there will be matches where one of the teams is much better than their opponents, and this is one such match. In these types of games, it is worth looking at the different handicap betting options on offer. By handicap betting, you can lengthen or shorten the odds of a team by giving them plus or minus points.

In the table below, you can see the 3-way handicap betting odds that some top bookmakers are currently offering for this Scotland v Romania game:

Scotland (0-57)1.891.89--1.95
Scotland (0-58)--1.91--
Draw (0-57)17.2017.20--23.00
Draw (0-58)--17.00--
Romania (0-57)1.811.81--1.83
Romania (0-58)--1.91--

🏮 Scotland v Romania Asian Handicap Odds

When it comes to handicap betting, there is still the possibility of the match ending in a theoretical draw. If you want to eliminate any kind of draw, you can opt for Asian handicap betting. Below are the Asian handicap betting odds that are being offered for this Scotland vs Romania match:

Scotland (-56.5)1.811.8-1.751.83
Romania (+56.5)1.811.81-1.761.83

The odds that you can see in the above tables were all correct when this prediction was written, but odds change frequently. For the updated odds, visit the bookmaker's site.

🔍 Scotland v Romania Winner Prediction

This match is a must-win one for Scotland, and they know that they will need to pick up as many points as they can before they meet the Irish in the final match of Pool B - this could end up being a winner takes all game. If Scotland suffer a surprise shock defeat to the Romanians, then their World Cup dreams will be all but over.

Scotland are currently sitting in 5th place in the Rugby World Rankings, while Romania are way down in 19th place, so are classified as a tier-two nation. Gregor Townsend's team have been okay in the tournament to date, being beaten 18-3 by South Africa before they hammered Tonga 45-17. Romania, on the other hand, have put in two poor performances so far, losing 82-8 to Ireland and 76-0 to South Africa. You cannot fault their effort, but a points difference of 150 is something that they will be a bit embarrassed by.

The Scots have been much better in 2023, and they do an outside shot at making it to the last eight should other results go their way. Romania, as always, will play with their hearts on their sleeves, but the strong Scottish pack and devastatingly quick backs will be too much for them, and I expect the Scots to rack up a bit of a cricket score. I believe that Scotland will win by no fewer than 55 points.

✔️ Scotland v Romania Betting Tips

In this section of my online betting guide for this match, I am going to provide you with some top tips for this game. However, before you go ahead and make any type of rugby prediction, always make sure that you gamble responsibly - you can do this by setting up a budget and sticking to it and by never chasing your losses.

1️⃣ Match Winner: Scotland to Win

These odds are shorter than Hobbits, so they are not really enticing at all. There will be only one team to rule them all in this match, and that will be Scotland. In order to make any potential money from betting on the Scots, you would need to put down a very big stake, and that is just not worth the risk since strange things can happen in this sport that we love.

However, if you still want to place a bet on the Scots to win, then William Hill are currently offering odds of 1.002.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Scotland to Win (-57)

I have already told you that I think Scotland will have a very easy match and go on to win by at least 55 points, so the -57 handicap betting option is something that appeals to me. Scotland go into this match knowing that their points difference could end up being crucial for their World Cup dreams, so I would not be surprised if they go on to win by even more. In order to win such a bet, you will need the Scots to win the match by at least 58 points - 57 points would be considered a draw.

If you want to place a -57-point handicap on Scotland, then Spreadex Sports are offering odds of 1.95.

3️⃣ Winning Margin

The winning margin betting market usually comes with some good odds, so it is worth having a look at. With this bet, your chosen bookie will offer various point ranges, and then you need to predict the points range that the winning team will win by. As I said, Scotland should win by at least 55 points, so if you happen to agree, Spreadex Sports are offering odds of 7.00 for Scotland to win by 51-55 points.

🎁 Scotland v Romania Free Bets and Rugby Betting Promotions

Whether you decide to bet on sports at new betting sites or ones that have a lot more experience, you should have many free bets and promotions to choose from. You do not need to go and search for the best rugby betting promotions around at the moment as I have done all of the hard work for you in the table below.
