Scotland vs Japan by Silky Tips
My pick is Scotland -21.
Many people might be confused over this as just on Saturday I backed the Japs + the handicap against South Africa, and we all know what happened there, they went and won at 50/1. But as momentous as that victory was it was physically and emotionally draining for the Japanese.
On the other side we have Scotland who have been forced to sit and watch 8 games of rugby without getting involved themselves and after the pool got blown wide open they will be absolutely buzzing to go out and put in a performance. They will have learnt a huge about from the Springbok game and I can gaurantee they won't be trying to adopt the hammer it up the middle tactics the South Africans tried instead they will run the ball in the wide channels and the likes of Stuart Hogg will get plenty of opportunities to score.
The Japanese don't have any depth in their squad and as a result they cannot nearly perform to the level they did on Saturday. i wish they could as I think everyone has now become a fan but put simply Scotland will walk this Japan had thier moment and have unfortunately been scheduled to play four days later, for a team who won their first game in a rugby world cup on Saturday since their only other victory against zimbabwae in 1987, it is a huge ask.
