The Leicester Tigers have been setting the pace at the top of the Premiership Rugby table this season, but they have had some recent wobbles.

It’s been back to back road losses for the Tigers in the top flight.

But the leaders are red-hot favourites as they make the trip to the Rec to face bottom-side Bath on the weekend.

Bath Preview – Can Bath upset the odds?

With just two victories recorded this season in Premiership Rugby, Bath may be up against it at the Rec on the weekend.

They are playing host to the current league leaders Leicester Tigers.

The two matches that Bath have won this term have been in consecutive home matches in January against Worcester and then Harlequins.

So they are lining up a shot at making it three straight home wins on the weekend.

In the match outright, Bath are 10/3 to come up with the win* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on February 18th, 2022 at William Hill).

They are currently bottom of the Premiership table in a season of big struggles.

But they have some fantastic home form at the Rec against the Leicester Tigers.

Bath have won all but one of their last eleven home fixtures against Leicester Tigers in the Premiership (L1).

They sneaked a win in last season’s corresponding fixture over Leicester by a single point.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 8-14 winning margin

The last time that Bath won three straight home matches was in February 2020.

During that winning run, there was a victory over the Leicester Tigers.

As Bath are bottom of the Premiership Rugby table there are clearly some issues at the club.

The biggest has been a lack of scoring.

Bath have produced a league-low 28 tries in this campaign.

On Saturday they will be taking on Leicester who are the third-highest try-scorers in this season’s Premiership.

Bath haven’t lost both games against Leicester in a single season since the 2010/11 season.


Leicester Tigers Preview – Can Leicester grab the road victory?

Each of Leicester’s last five Premiership Rugby matches have been won by the home side on the day.

In that sequence, the Tigers have lost the last two road games.

Those defeats happened at Wasps and Sale, so they have gone off the boil a bit.

They had won all previous Premiership away games up until that point.

There is a quote of 1/5 odds-on for the Leicester victory in rugby betting* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on February 18th, 2022 at William Hill).

So they are the favourites for this visit to the Rec, but with those recent wobbles and a poor record at the venue, there will be a bit of pressure on the Tigers.

If they come up with the victory on Saturday, it will be their 14th of the season.

That would be the most win in a season that they will have recorded since the 2016/17 campaign.

Can the Leicester Tigers get across the line and rediscover their scoring touch?

Given their extra quality and scoring threat, then they probably have to be supported to do so.

After all, a W5 L2 record on the road this season isn’t bad.

A Leicester -11 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on February 18th, 2022 at William Hill).

Leicester Tigers have the best defensive record in the league this season.

At the Rec on Saturday they are facing the second-lowing scoring team in the top flight.


Bath vs Leicester Tigers Betting Advice

If the Leicester Tigers play to their best then there’s a chance of them coming away with a comfortable win here.

The first selection is the Leicester Tiger -11 handicap at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on February 18th, 2022 at William Hill).

They should be good enough to get pretty close to covering that kind of line because they do have the scoring power.


Key Facts – Bath vs Leicester Tigers Betting Tip

  • Bath have only won twice in the Premiership this season
  • Bath have scored fewer tries than any other team this season in Premiership Rugby
  • Leicester Tigers have lost their last two road games


The Tigers do kick a lot of balls, while Bath likes to keep the ball in hand. Of the two, Leicester have been far more successful with their tactics this season.

For the second rugby betting pick in this fixture, it’s going to the Tigers to win by 8-14 points* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on February 18th, 2022 at William Hill).

Even though Leicester have really poor form at the Rec, they comfortably beat Bath earlier this season on home turf, and we expect more of the same.
