Bath are still rooted to the foot of the Premiership Rugby table but only by one point behind Newcastle Falcons heading into the weekend.

They had a bye in the last round of action, but in their last league match, they produced a derby day victory over Bristol.

Sale Sharks have bigger ambitions as they are hanging on in the race for a top-four finish. They can’t afford to drop points on Saturday.

Bath Preview – Can Bath give themselves a lift?

Bottom team Bath will be hoping to come up with something special at the Rec on Saturday.

It has been a W4 L14 record by them this season in the top flight.

So there hasn’t been much to cheer about for them.

That is until recently at least because Bath are looking for their third straight league victory.

Out of nowhere, they produced back to back wins against Newcastle and then rivals Bristol.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, Bath are a quote of 9/4* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfair).

Their recent form at the Rec has seen them win three of their last four home league games.

Those were against Worcester, Harlequins and then most recently Bristol.

So that has been a massive upswing in form by them.

Our betting prediction:
Bath 1-7 winning margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfair)


Bath have crept above the 20-point line on the scoreboard in each of their last four home fixtures.

Given the position that they are in, they haven’t been reliable in descent at all.

But even that has been improved recently, with Bath keeping both Worcester and Harlequins to under 20 points.

In last season’s home match against Sale, Bath lost by four points.

But in the last five meetings in the top flight at the Rec, Bath are ahead with a W3 D1 L1 record.


Sale Sharks Preview – Sale need the points

Sale Sharks have a chance at a top-four finish, but it’s such a tight scrap, they can’t afford to drop points at the Rec.

It has been a W2 L2 record by Sale in their last four league games.

In their most recent effort, they fell to a defeat at Sandy Park against Exeter.

But it has been back to back away wins from Sale Sharks in the top flight.

Those were good ones at Harlequins and then by a single-point at Northampton Saints.

Sale are W9 D2 L8 this season, ending the last round of league action four points out of the top four.

So there is everything to play for and the interesting thing here is if we extend Sale’s away form this season, it’s not been terrific.

Sale Sharks have lost seven of their last ten away matches in all competitions (W3).

In the Premiership, it has been a W2 L5 return in seven away fixtures.

Even though the Sale sharks are coming in at a quote of 10/11 in Premiership Rugby betting, this may not be cut and dry* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfair).

Sale Sharks went winless in six league visits to the Rec (D1 L5) before winning their last season.

So it hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for them.

Will it be on the weekend?


Bath vs Sale Sharks Betting Advice

Bath surely have to be worth a look in this one at a quote of 9/4 in the match outright* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfair).

They have won only four matches this season, and three of those have appeared in their last four home fixtures.

Granted this is a tough one, but they have beaten Harlequins in this recent burst of home form and only lost to leaders Leicester Tigers by four points.


Key Facts – Bath vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip

  • Bath have won three of their last four home matches
  • Bath have won five of their last seven home matches against Sale (D1 L1)
  • Sale Sharks have lost five of their last seven league away matches


So we would be all over the Bath Rugby +7 handicap line at a quote of 10/11 as that looks a good proposition* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfair).

Sale Sharks took a while to get going this season before going on a hot streak.

But their overall away form this season and poor head to head record at the Rec could leave them vulnerable.
