The curtain will come down on what has been a disappointing season for Exeter on the league front.

The Chiefs will not be going to the Premiership Rugby Playoffs, but will they at least finish on a high note at Sandy Park?

Harlequins pay a visit and with Quins already with one eye on the semi-finals after securing a third-place finish already, they may not be at their strongest.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs to topple Quins

The Exeter Chiefs have failed to reach their target on the domestic front, missing out on a Premiership Rugby top-four finish.

It has been back to back losses for them in the league.

Those were both away defeats against old rivals Saracens and then Bristol Bears.

But in the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, Exeter Chiefs are 1/3 odds-on for Saturday* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

As opponents Harlequins are heading to the semi-finals, then Exeter could have a fairly comfortable ride in this one.

It doesn’t make sense for Quins to throw everything that they have at this fixture with bigger fish to fry next weekend.

The bulk of Exeter’s slump in form has happened away from home.

The Chiefs have suffered only one loss in their last six matches at Sandy Park (all tournaments).

That one loss was against Leicester Tigers in the league.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter Chiefs 6-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365)


Exeter have lost their last two matches against Quins, which includes last year’s Premiership Final at Twickenham.

This is the first time that the Chiefs have missed the Playoffs since 2015.

So they have to feel a bit of wounded pride because of that.

The Chiefs have been nowhere near their prolific scoring best this season.

Aside from a romp against Bath in their last league home fixture, Exeter have failed to reach 20 points in three of their last six league home matches.


Harlequins Preview – Quins to play it safe

Reigning champions Harlequins have nothing to play for in this fixture so will probably take it easy.

They will finish in third place regardless of the outcome of this match which means that they will go to either Leicester or Saracens next weekend in the Playoff semi-finals.

It’s hardly worth risking injury and burnout ahead of that.

With that in mind, Harleqins are 12/5 underdogs in Premiership Rugby betting odds* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

Quins did bank a home success over Exeter Chiefs earlier this season.

They have done the season double over the Chiefs since the 2013/14 season.

Given the circumstances surrounding this match, it is not likely to happen this term.

Harlequins have really kicked into gear over the second half of this Premiership campaign.

They have lost only one of their last eight fixtures.

That was by the narrowest of margins away at Northampton Saints in Round 24.

Harlequins had been on a three-match winning streak away from home in the league before that.

It’s a seven-match losing streak they are on at Sandy Park.


Exeter Chiefs vs Harlequins Betting Advice

Exeter have won only one of their last six Premiership Rugby matches, which is clearly well below their best.

They are out of contention for the Playoffs, but will likely give the home support at Sandy Park something to cheer about on Saturday.

Even though their opponents aren’t likely to be too interested, it’s a play for a Quins +8 handicap at Evens* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).


Key Facts – Exeter Chiefs vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Exeter Chiefs have won one of their last six Premiership matches only
  • Exeter Chiefs have failed to reach the Playoffs for the first time since 2015
  • Harlequins will finish third regardless of the outcome


That’s because there is nothing at stake for either team and Exeter haven’t been a prolific scoring team this season.

There hasn’t been a great deal of confidence for Exeter, so we’ll still push for a fairly narrow margin.

The Chiefs’ 6-10 winning margin is the second rugby tip at 9/2* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365)
