Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs under pressure

It has been back to back league defeats for Exeter Chiefs, putting a huge amount of pressure on themselves.

Those were losses against Worcester and then leaders Leicester Tigers.

It means that they are still left with a lot of work to do to get themselves into the play offs this season.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for Exeter is at 1/12 odds-on* (odds recorded 19:49 GMT on March 31st, 2022 at William Hill).

Their loss against the Leicester Tigers in their most recent game at Sandy Park in the league, snapped a two-match winning streak at home by them.

It was also the first time this season that the Chiefs had been losing at half time at home.

Looking back a little further it is a W2 L2 home record by the Chiefs in their last four at home.

It’s been far from perfect and in such a tight race for the play off spots, Exeter need to dial it up a notch.

Their head to head form against Bath suggests that they can do that.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-7 HT Winning Margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 19:49 GMT on March 31st, 2022 at William Hill)


Exeter Chiefs have won 10 of their last 11 Premiership fixtures against Bath (L1).

It’s been a five-match winning streak by the Chiefs over Bath.

Four of Exeter’s last five victories over Bath in the league have been by at least 22 points.

For Saturday’s fixture, an Exeter -15 handicap is where the line is, at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 19:49 GMT on March 31st, 2022 at William Hill).

The last six losses that they have suffered in the league have been by no bigger than a six-point margin.

With the pressure on, Exeter needed to respond at home.


Bath Preview – Can visitors upset the odds?

Bath have produced some much-improved form heading towards the close of the regular season.

Since losing narrowly to league leaders Leicester, Bath are undefeated in three.

In that run, they claimed wins over Newcastle and Bristol Bears before drawing last weekend against Sale.

Bath had been well ahead at the halftime break at the Rec against Sale Sharks last weekend, but let the match slip.

In the match outright, Bath are huge 8/1 underdogs in the match outright* (odds recorded 19:49 GMT on March 31st, 2022 at William Hill).

They are heading to Sandy Park with very little from behind them on the road.

There has only been one road success for Bath this season.

Bath got that victory at Newcastle Falcons in their last road fixture.
