Exeter’s European Champions Cup title defence ended last weekend as Leinster showed up at Sandy Park to eliminate them.

That’s two defeats for them in their last three games in all competitions now.

But it is now full focus on the Premiership for them as they return to domestic action with a game against the out-of-sorts Wasps.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs fully focused on league

Exeter’s title defence in Europe then has gone, but so it’s all hands to the pump in the Premiership.

Exeter did lose their last league game, which was at Gloucester.

But they had rested a lot of their usual starters for that fixture, as it was ahead of their Heineken Cup matches.

After a convincing home win over Lyon in their first European game during the break, Exeter were beaten 22-34 at home by Leinster.

Normal business in the Premiership is likely to be resumed on the weekend, however.

There is a quote of 1/5 odds-on for the Exeter victory in this fixture* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)

The Chiefs return to action in second place in the table, twelve points adrift of leaders Bristol.

There have been five defeats for them in the campaign and there are a couple of teams breathing down their neck.

So they can’t really afford any more of those slip-ups.

At Sandy Park in league action this season, Exeter are W5 L2, the losses happening to them against Bristol Bears and Northampton Saints.

They look a convincing rugby betting option in this fixture to back, however.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 11-15 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)


Four of the five home wins that Exeter have recorded this season have been by a margin of at least 8 points.

Three of those were by at least 16 points.

They should have a fairly comfortable run of things in this fixture as Wasps don’t look like a big threat.

An Exeter -10 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)

The Chiefs should have a bit of revenge in mind as well here having lost at Wasps, heavily so, earlier this season.

But Exeter have never suffered a season’s double-loss against Wasps.


Wasps Preview – Tough return to league action for Wasps

This isn’t a welcoming game to be getting back into Premiership action with for Wasps at all.

They have actually only ever claimed one victory at Sandy Park before which was a 26-19 victory in April 2019.

It is with little surprise that they lineup as the underdogs for this one.

A Wasps away win is at 7/2 in Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Their European run for this season, came to an abrupt end in the recent break, with a home defeat against Clermont Auvergne.

That did get them an extra week of rest if that is going to be any benefit to them.

But the loss was the fourth defeat for Wasps in their last five games and they are struggling to really trouble the scoreboard.

Only once in their last five games have they managed more than 20 points in a fixture.

Wasps have scored exactly 20 points in each of their last four league games (W1 L3).

There has been one victory for Wasps in the last six rounds of league action and that was away at Newcastle.

But their away form does warrant a look because it is actually pretty good.

Wasps have won 5 of their last 7 away games in all competitions, which is a very strong return.

Their road record in this season’s Premierships is W4 L3.

Each of the three defeats for them, against Gloucester, Bristol and Leicester, were by a margin of at least 16 points.

A Wasps +10 handicap is at even money in rugby betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

The away record for Wasps is excellent, but we have to look after their defeat at Bristol Bears as some kind of indicator as to which way this may go.


Exeter Chiefs vs Wasps Betting Advice

We would expect a big response from the Exeter Chiefs to come, now that they have no European distractions.

Immediately the Exeter -10 handicap at 10/11 stands out as a rugby betting pick* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

They haven’t been at their best this season and have generally been slow starters to matches.


Key Facts – Exeter Chiefs vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Exeter Chiefs have lost 5 league matches this season
  • Exeter Chiefs have lost only once at Sandy Park against Wasps
  • Wasps have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions


Wasps have a decent road record in this campaign but they have gotten a lot of their easier games out of the way.

They have played two of the current top four and have a W1 L1 record from that.

The win was a one-point mating success at Harlequins.

But we feel that Chiefs are going to be back on track and so an Exeter -11-15 winning margin at evens piques interest in rugby betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).
