Bath remain winless in what has been nothing short of a miserable Premiership Rugby campaign for them this season.

They don’t get it easy on Friday night either as they have to face up to the Exeter Chiefs.

But Exeter, who are the match favourites, have been well below their usual dominant best having lost four of their last five fixtures in all competitions.

Bath Preview – Can Bath get off the mark?

Bath are still searching for that elusive first win of the season having lost all seven played so far.

It’s been more than a tough campaign for them with just three losing bonus points picked up.

They return to the Rec on Friday to play host to Exeter Chiefs, looking to pull off what would be a sizable upset.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting on Friday, Bath are the 3/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)

The last time that Bath collected a win at the Rec was in Round 22 of last season’s campaign when they beat Northampton Saints.

That is the only home victory that the club have recorded in the league since April.

The head to head doesn’t give much for Bath either, as the West Country club have won only one of their last ten against Exeter.

Along with some returning internationals, Bath will have scrum half, Ben Spencer, back in action on the weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)


This seven-match losing streak is the longest that Bath have ever recorded in the competition.

They have shipped at least 20 points in all fixtures played this season.

But the reading gets worse when you look at averages. Bath have conceded an average of 33 points per league fixture during this 2021/22 campaign.

A Bath +10 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)

Even though Bath are facing an Exeter side who are not at their best at the moment, projecting Bath holding that handicap still looks a little dodgy.

With their current four-match losing streak going against the Chiefs, this losing streak may well continue for Bath.


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Can Exeter find their feet at the Rec?

It’s been a campaign so far of below-expectations from Rob Baxter’s Exeter Chiefs who suffered a shock defeat in the last round.

They played host to the Newcastle Falcons and suffered defeat by a margin of a single point.

That’s two defeats for Exeter in their last three.

That means that Exeter’s last four matches in Premiership Rugby have been won by the away side on the day.

Exeter are the 1/4 odds-on favourites in rugby betting to take maximum points out of this* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)

So far in this campaign, it has been a W4 L4 return by Exeter, not the kind of form that you have come to expect from the Devon outfit.

But this does represent a decent chance for them to claim a win.

They have suffered one loss in their last 10 against Bath in the league, that defeat coming at the Rec in October 2019.

It’s been four wins for Exeter in their last five visits to that venue.

After claiming just one victory in their previous 11 against Bath, the Devonians have now won all but two of their last 12 against Bath.

Exeter Chiefs finished the last round of action as the lowest-scoring team sat inside the top five of the table.

So they have been nowhere near their clinical best this season.

They are the only ones inside the top four not to have tallied up at least 30 tries this season.

Exeter are on a three-match winning streak away from Sandy Park in the Premiership, the last time they went beyond that was in late 2019.

Exeter have won their last two away games by no bigger of a margin than four points, which makes the handicapping a little tricky.

You are looking at a 10/11 quote on them covering a -10 line* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)


Bath vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

This should go to Exeter as there are positives there for the Devonians. They have won their last three away games in the league.

There’s also their big head to head record going against Bath, so that can all be put together to get the Exeter win.

However they haven’t found top gear this season and pulling back to an Exeter 1-10 winning margin at 5/2 is our first selection for rugby betting* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on November 24th, 2021)


Key Facts – Bath vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip
