It is Exeter v Harlequins for the Premiership Rugby Final on Saturday. This is what the season has been boiling up to.

Exeter are the reigning champions and they are the favourites for Saturday’s big match at Twickenham.

They face Harlequins who pulled off a stunning shock semi-final victory over Bristol Bears, who had finished the regular season top of the Premiership table.

This should be a fantastic clash.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Will Exeter retain the title?

This is it then, the game for all of the spoils, as the Premiership Rugby title is on the line at Twickenham on Saturday.

Exeter Chiefs are the reigning champions and they are not likely to surrender their title easily.

In Premiership Rugby betting, Exeter are 2/9 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on June 25th, 2021).

During the regular season, Exeter won both games against Harlequins.

The first of those was in November at the Stoop, with the Chiefs running out easy 33-3 winners on the day.

The second meeting of the season at Sandy Park was a classic, as the Chiefs got across the line by a single point in march.

Exeter make sixth straight Premiership Rugby Final

This is the sixth straight season that the Devon club has been in the Premiership final.

If they get their hands on the prize, then it will be their third title in the last five years.

This has been a tougher season for them on the domestic front than it certainly was last season.

Exeter finished second in the league stands to Bristol Bears and Sale Sharks and Harlequins themselves have closed the gap on the Chiefs.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-12 winning margin

Next for this Premiership Rugby betting preview of the Final, we need to look at some current form.

Exeter have current form in spades. They have won their last eight Premiership fixtures since losing at Gloucester in Round 15.

That’s massive form. In their final game of the regular season, they produced a stunning fightback to beat Sale Sharks.

Then they hosted the Sharks last weekend in the Premiership Rugby semi-final and came out on top with a brilliant 40-30 win.

Without question, Exeter have been pushed this season.

They have found ways to win though still, which is a huge credit to them.

An Exeter -10 handicap for Premiership rugby betting is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on June 25th, 2021).

Across the course of the regular season, Exeter averaged 27 points per fixture.


Harlequins Preview – Can Quins defy the odds?

Harlequins were the fourth-place finishers at the end of the regular Premiership season.

They were therefore up against it in the semi-finals draw, having to face top-side Bristol Bears.

Harlequins looked down and out in that fixture as after half an hour Quins were 28-0 down and looking dead in the water.

But they fired their way back into the contest remarkably and took the game to extra time after a 31-31 was on the scoreboard at 80 minutes.

Harlequins went on to score two more tries to Bristol’s one in extra time.

There has been a big team chance for them with Andre Esterhuizen coming back into the line for the first time since he was banned back in March.

The South African is one of three changes that Harlequins make to last weekend’s starting fifteen.

In the match outright for rugby betting Harlequins are the 7/2 underdogs* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on June 25th, 2021).

Harlequins have won three of their last four fixtures. The upset in that sequence happened against Sale.

That was in their penultimate game of the regular season.

It is worth noting that Harlequins were the top-scoring side across the course of the regular season.

They averaged 33 points per fixture, impressively being on the only team to reach the 700 point landmark.

Harlequins have scored at least 40 points in three of their last four games.

For rugby betting over 51.5 Total Points is at 11/10* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on June 25th, 2021).

Harlequins can give as good as they get in attack. It’s whether or not they can do enough in defence.


Exeter Chiefs vs Harlequins Betting Advice

We know that Harlequins bring plenty of scoring power to the table. They are going to need all of it against Exeter.

They rattled the Chiefs at Sandy Park during the regular season but still couldn’t come out on top.

We think that they do narrowly come up short against them again, but feel a Quins +10 handicap at 5/6 is worth playing for in rugby betting* (odds recorded 17:49 GMT on June 25th, 2021).


Key Facts – Exeter Chiefs vs Harlequins Betting Tip

The key difference between the two teams we think is going to be in defence. That is where the Chiefs can take this.
