The season got even worse for Bath last weekend as they paid a visit to Harlequins and were soundly beaten.

They get back to home soil at the Rec this weekend as they look to secure their first win of the campaign.

Wasps have been struggling as of late as well, losing three of their last four in the Premiership. This may be a tight tussle, but the visitors are lining up as the favourites.

Bath Preview – Can Bath get their first win of the season?

There was a loss last weekend for Bath away at Harlequins, which was a 17-31 defeat.

That is five defeats from their five matches played in the Premiership this season and so they are having a tough time of it.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for Bath is at a quote of 11/8* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

This five-match losing streak is their worst run of form in the tournament since 2002.

Can they turn the corner?

At the Rec, Bath have claimed a win in just one of their last six matches at the venue in all competitions.

So they don’t even have the home form to lean on.

There have been 10 tries scored by Bath this season, with big rivals Bristol the only team to have scored fewer.

Bristol incidentally, have beaten Bath this season.

In their last Premiership rugby home fixture Bath had a nightmare, losing 17-71 against Saracens.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-7 winning margin

Only once before have Bath lost more than five straight fixtures in the competition.

That was when they lost six on the spin, a run ending in January 1999.

Twice this season Bath have been leading at the half time break in matches, but haven’t been able to press home their advantage.

Bath have also conceded more penalties in matches this season than any other team.

With a four-match losing streak going against Wasps on top of all this, then the underdog odds are justifiable.

A Bath +3 handicap is running at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).


Wasps Preview – Wasps good for the win?

The recent form of Wasps hasn’t been exactly red hot in the Premiership and they go to the Rec on Saturday after back to back defeats.

But those defeats were excusable ones against Exeter and Saracens for Wasps.

Wasps are the 8/13 odds-on favourites in Premiership Rugby betting* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021)

It is a W2 L3 record by Wasps this season in the top flight.

The two victories that they have recorded, against Northampton and Bristol Bears, were on home soil.

But there was a notable win there against the Bears who have, as mentioned, beaten Bath this season.

Overall home and away, Wasps have won only one of their last four matches.

Out on their travels, they have collected one in their last six only, which happened towards the end of last season at London Irish.

But then the Coventry outfit are on a four-match winning streak against Bath in Premiership Rugby.

Victory on Saturday will give their best ever run of victories against this opponent.
