Exeter are riding high at the top of the Premiership and holding a four-point lead over second-placed Sale Sharks ahead of round 13. The Chiefs will be looking for a commanding performance at Sandy Park as they host Bath. But the visitors need points in the push for a top four finish.

Exeter to prevail at Sandy Park

There was an upset for Exeter last weekend. The league leaders were toppled in a surprising 30-34 defeat at Harlequins. That wasn’t a result which many would have seen coming.

Their home form has seen Exeter suffer two losses in their last three at Sandy Park in all competitions. They have suffered two home league defeats in this campaign as well against Bristol and Sale.

The Chiefs are the scoring powerhouses of the Premiership, tallying a league-leading 333 points this season and 40 tries. They also carry the second-best defensive record heading back into action as well.

They will want to stamp out those slip-ups, however.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-7 HT Winning Margin

(odds taken 2125 GMT, Thursday 6th March)

The Chiefs will have to be on their toes because Bath are in decent away form.

Exeter will be looking for some revenge too, having lost 13-10 at the Rec against Bath back at the end of October in league action.

Exeter will be defending an unbeaten home record against Bath stretching back to 2016.


Bath carrying food away form

Bath have won two of their last three road games in the Premiership, so for the Premiership rugby betting in this fixture, punters may fancy a nibble on the visitors, at least to get close to the Chiefs.

They had been on a three-match winning streak in the Premiership had Bath, but that fell apart in a big top-five clash against rivals Bristol last weekend on home turf. That was a big blow for their top-four ambitions.

Just once in their last four Premiership games have Bath managed to put at least twenty points on the board.

So that lack of scoring power has to come into question against the league’s best attack on the weekend.

Exeter Chiefs vs Bath Betting Advice

Exeter have gone unbeaten since 2016 at home against Bath and can weather any storm that comes their way in this contest. The Chiefs have the scoring power in their ranks that Bath can’t match.

Bath are the third-lowest scoring team in the division currently, which sums it all up. While Bath are in good shape defensively, they are going to have a long afternoon against Exeter’s attack.
