Back Scots to beat Brave Blossoms

THE MONEY MAN is betting on Scotland to claim a comfortable win against Japan in Gloucester on Wednesday.

Hey folks, let me say nothing about last Saturday and focus on today's games, of which I like one.

And yes, it is Scotland to win easily against Japan.

For Japan, beating the Boks will have been rugby utopia and make no mistake, even joyful emotions can drain the best of people. They also have a four-day turnaround and play a rested Scotland at Kingsholm in Gloucester.

If Japan had not beaten the Boks on Saturday, the handicap would have been around 25-plus.

I am betting R1,000 for Scotland to win by 15 or more points. It returns R750. It is the best bet as far as I can see.

I like Fiji not to lose by 26 or more and will put down R250 on that which returns R225. I think France will win easily by 30, but with the French anything can happen so I will be an observer in this game.

Good luck today.
