Odds: 10/11 odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February

Bath were in turmoil last weekend as they visited Bristol in a big derby match. They were soundly beaten in that game.

So that leaves Bath third from bottom in the league table now and with some serious struggles going.

Will the visiting Harlequins, who took a great way win at Wasps last weekend, be able to take advantage of the situation at the Rec?

Bath Preview – Can Bath solve their problems?

From their six completed fixtures in this season’s Premiership, Bath are W1 D5 and are slumping badly.

Last weekend they went to Ashton Gate to face Bristol and were beaten 48-3.

That was the fourth straight defeat for Bath in all competitions.

In each of their last three losses, Bath have conceded more than 30 points, so their defence is wide open.

In the match outright for this game, Bath are the 6/4 home underdogs, which says it all* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

The last win now that Bath have taken in any competition was back on Boxing Day.

That was a league victory at Worcester in round three of this season’s action.

A 31-20 success over Gloucester in Round 21 of last season’s campaign is the last time that they won at the Rec.

But as one positive that they can take forward, Bath did do the league double over Harlequins last season.

Our betting prediction:
Quins 1-12 winning margin

A Bath +3 handicap is at even money in rugby betting* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

So the bookmakers are thinking that is going to be tight.

Aside from their three points only against Bristol Bears last weekend Bath have been scoring fairly well recently.

They just can’t plug the gaps in defence with the worst defensive record in the division.

In their league home games so far, Bath have lost both completed fixtures against Newcastle Falcons and London Wasps.

Neither of those home defeats were by a margin of fewer than seven points.


Harlequins Preview – A chance for another away win for Quins

Harlequins pulled a brilliant win out of their hat last weekend, which very few would have seen coming.

They visited Wasps who had been on a five-match winning streak in all competitions.

Harlequins produced a stunning 49-17 away victory in that one, ending a long winless streak of form that they had been on.

That was the first win for Quins since early December last year in all competitions.

But here’s the thing to note for rugby betting, Harlequins have great away form.

It has been a six-match winning streak on their league travels, which doesn’t include their declared defeat in round five out at Worcester.

From their five completed fixtures in the league this season, Harlequins are W2 D1 L2.

Already on the road this season they have claimed wins at Gloucester and Northampton.

Those two victories were both by a margin of more than 9 points.

A Harlequins -3 handicap therefore at 10/11 looks a very solid rugby betting proposition* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

They have an away form and are facing a Bath team who are in pretty poor shape at the moment.

At the end of the day, we can look at it like this.

The scoring output of Harlequins this season has been far superior to that of Bath’s.

Given the state of Bath’s defence at the moment, an away win certainly piques some interest here.


Bath vs Harlequins Betting Advice

Everything is going wrong for Bath at the moment and that was an ego-bruising defeat that they suffered last weekend against Bristol.

So will they bounce back?

Maybe, but we think that the away win looks the more appealing prospect in the match outright at 4/7* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February)

But even more appealing is the quote of 10/11 on a Harlequins -3 handicap as we think that they can cover that comfortably* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).


Key Facts – Bath vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Bath have lost their last four games in all competitions
  • Bath did a league double over Harlequins last season
  • Harlequins have won their last six league roar fixtures


Harlequins can take some massive heart from a brilliant win at Wasps last weekend to make it six straight away wins in the Premiership.

That just can’t be ignored.

So for the final pick for rugby betting, we are going with Quins 1-12 winning margin at 13/18* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February)
