Can Bath end the regular season on a positive note? There has been a major slump at the end of the season from them.

They get home advantage to sign off, as they play host to Northampton Saints.

A win will guarantee that they get a top-eight finish at least to play in the Heineken Champions Cup next season.

The Saints missed out on a top-four finish, and are locked into fifth.

o there have been positives for them, but they are the underdogs at the Rec on Saturday in Premiership Rugby Betting.

Bath Preview – Can Bath hold on to top eight spot?

Bath start the final weekend of the regular Premiership season sat in eight spots.

That’s the final spot to go to the Champions Cup next season.

But they are under some pressure here as their league form has taken a nosedive.

It’s a five-match losing streak that Bath currently find themselves on.

In the last round of action, they found themselves going down 44-33 away at Harlequins.

Bath have lost their last three games at the Rec in all competitions, going down against Bristol and Sale in their last two league home games.

Those are top-four sides, but Saturday’s opponents Northampton Saints are sitting in fifth place.

Bath are the 1/3 odds-on favourites in the match outright for Rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).

Earlier this season, Bath did claim a win over Northampton, getting across the line in a thrilling fixture by a single-point margin.

Our betting prediction:
Bath 1-7 winning margin

* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021)


The home record of Bath this season in the Premiership is W3 L6, so the Rec hasn’t been a fortress.

Two of those three wins were against the current bottom two of Gloucester and Worcester, the other against Leicester.

There have been a lot of points leaked by Bath this season and only in three of their home fixtures have they managed to get above the 20-point line on the scoreboard.

Bath are favourites here as they try and climbing onto a Champions Cup place, and at the end of the day, Northampton have nothing at stake.

A Bath -5 handicap is at a quote of 4/6 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021)


Northampton Saints Preview – Saints to seal the show?

Northampton will finish fifth in the Premiership table and are comfortably through to the Champions Cup next season.

So this could be a weekend off for them if they wanted.

Last weekend they gave a good account of themselves, losing by three points only against Exeter.

That is a W2 L3 record from the Tigers in their last five fixtures now.

In their last road game, they lost at Newcastle Falcons and that’s defeat against two of the current bottom three they have suffered in their last four.

Northampton can be forgiven for not going hard at this game.

They are a quote of 12/5 underdogs in the match outright as big underdogs* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).

It hasn’t been a bad season on the road overall for the Saints this season.

They have earned a W5 L4 road record.

Three of the four away defeats that Northampton Saints have suffered this season have happened against top-four teams.

Other than that, they have handled themselves pretty well.

Northampton haven’t really troubled the scoreboard too much in their away fixtures.

They have been above 23 points in just two of their road games. Both occasions were against the bottom two of Gloucester and Worcester.

7 of Northampton’s 9 away games have been settled (regardless of results) by a margin of single figures.

With that in mind a Northampton +9 handicap doesn’t look unreasonable* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).


Bath vs Northampton Saints Betting Advice

Of the two teams, Bath have to be the more motivated and fired up for this one.

They are playing for a Champions Cup place and a victory will guarantee that. Their form at the Rec has been poor this season.

But because Northampton has nothing at stake, we are going with the sensible option of the Bath win. A Bath 1-7 winning margin is at 7/1* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).
