Sunday’s game is the final fixture of the Premiership Rugby weekend and it could be worth the wait.

Exeter are scrapping for a top-four finish at the moment embroiled in what appears to be a four-horse race for the final spot.

Will they be able to topple the Tigers at Sandy Park? League leaders Leicester are cruising to the playoffs but won’t take their foot off the gas.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Can the Chiefs stop Leicester?

Exeter had a nice bit of momentum going in the top flight, putting together a four-match winning streak.

But that came undone in a shock defeat against the Worcester Warriors last time out.

That upset left Exeter Chiefs in fourth place in the league game, by just two points.

They still have their work cut out for them to make it back to the top four this season.

This is a tough one at Sandy Park for them on Sunday too against leaders Leicester Tigers.

In the match outright, Exeter Chiefs are 10/11* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at William Hill).

The Chiefs are on a W11 L8 record this season.

Surprisingly they have struggled for a high-scoring output and have scored fewer points than anyone else currently inside the top nine.

Given that they won’t likely be in fourth place come kick-off on Sunday, this match has a must-win feel for Exeter.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-7 winning margin

Back in September, Exeter suffered a defeat against the Tigers at Welford Road.

That may have been a significant shift too, as Exeter has won their seven previous encounters against them before that.

Looking at Exeter’s most recent home form, they have won four of their last five.

Their last two home defeats were both by a 1-point margin only.

The last six league matches played at Sandy Park have all been settled by a margin of no more than 10 points.


Leicester Tigers Preview – Can Tigers exert dominance?

Even though Leicester are comfortable at the top of the league standings, winning at Exeter would give them a further confidence boost.

It’s also an opportunity to potentially keep the Chiefs away from the top four this season.

Leicester have lost only one of their last six Premiership matches.

That defeat was on the road when they went down at Saracens in early March.

Turning the attention to their away form, the Tigers have lost three of their last four on the road in the top flight.

Those were defeats against Wasps, Sale and Saracens.

So their away form has gone off the boil.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting on Sunday, the win for Leicester is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at William Hill).

Leicester Tigers have scored at least 24 points in each of their last three away matches.

Leicester Tigers have tallied up a tremendous W16 L3 record this season in the top flight.

They will be back at full strength for this.

All seven England internationals returning from duty get into the matchday squad.

That recent slump of away form did come after they had won seven in a row.

All three road defeats were by a margin of no more than 10 points.

Even though the Tigers have lost their last six trips to Sandy Park, they are not going to be out of this on the weekend.


Exeter Chiefs vs Leicester Tigers Betting Advice

This should be an absolute cracker. Exeter are in the territory now of each game looking like a must-win scenario.

They are fighting with three other teams for what looks likely to be the one remaining place in the top four, with Leicester, Saracens and Harlequins all looking rock solid for a spot.

The Chiefs have been far from perfect this season and there have been vulnerabilities.

Notably in the scoring department, and there is where Leicester may well grind them down. On all attacking aspects, Leicester look stronger.

So the Even Money on the Tigers coming out on top has appeal* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Exeter Chiefs vs Leicester Tigers Betting Tip

  • Exeter Chiefs have won their last six at home against Leicester
  • Exeter Chiefs have won 4 of their last 5 league home matches
  • Leicester Tigers have lost three of their last four on the road


The Tigers have had their wobbles on the road, perhaps partially affected by the Six Nations.

They should rightly be up for this one and are good enough to get across the line with a narrow victory.

Fascinatingly all but one of the last eight meetings between the two clubs have been settled by a margin of at least 12 points.

But that looks like a really big line for this current clash.

A Leicester Tigers 1-7 winning margin appeals at 3/1* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at William Hill).
