Exeter will be looking for a comfortable home success against Newcastle in Premiership action on the weekend.

They play host to Newcastle Falcons at Sandy Park as they continue to coast towards the Premiership semi-finals.

Newcastle Falcons have found a little burst of form, having managed to secure back to back wins. This is a much tougher assignment, however.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs to make it five in a row?

Exeter look to be on cruise control at the end of the regular Premiership season at the moment.

In the last round of top-flight action, they took a comfortable away success at London Irish by a 31-12 scoreline.

That was their fourth win in a row and it has been a good solid response since losing to Leinster in the Heineken Cup.

In the match outright for Sunday’s Premiership rugby betting, the win for Exeter is at an unapproachable 1/33 odds-on quote* (odds recorded 02:56 GMT on May 28th, 2021).

That’s a massive indicator of how comfortable they are expected to be at Sandy Park on Sunday.

There have only been two league defeats at Sandy Park by Exeter this season in the Premiership.

Those were against Bristol in Round 6 and Northampton in Round 10.

The overall home record is at W7 L2 for the campaign.

In their last two league home games, they have posted at least 40 points so they have been scoring freely.

The Chiefs have hit the 40-point mark in four of their nine home games for the campaign.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them take a victory by a decent margin on Sunday.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter Chiefs 21-25 winning margin

When they paid a visit to Kingston Park earlier this season, Exeter took a 15-9 victory over the Falcons.

Exeter have lost once to Newcastle in all competitions since 2014. That was in a league fixture in January 2018.

That’s a tough record to go against.


Newcastle Falcons Preview – Tough afternoon ahead for the Falcons

The form of the Falcons has picked up recently in the Premiership as they have won their last two.

Those were victories over London Irish and Northampton Saints.

That’s been a good response from them after having gone on a massive slump of form which had pushed them to second from bottom.

The last time that Newcastle Falcons won three fixtures in a row was right at the start of this season.

An away win for the Falcons on Sunday is at a quote of 10/1 in Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 02:56 GMT on May 28th, 2021).

However, there has not been an away win for Newcastle this year in the Premiership.

Their last road win in the competition happened on December 5th last year on a visit to Wasps.

The overall away record from Newcastle this season is W2 L5.

Everything about this fixture reads as being difficult for them.

In their two away games played this season against other top-four sides, they lost by a 12-point margin against Bristol and a 15-point margin against Sale.

The Newcastle +21 handicap option is at evens* (odds recorded 02:56 GMT on May 28thrd, 2021).

In just three of their seven away fixtures, Newcastle managed to put at least 20 points on the scoreboard.

Their chances of making it three wins on the road for current form look pretty slim at the end of the day.
