Exeter just need to keep plugging away to the end of the regular season to secure their top-four finish.

The Chiefs will be looking for a comfortable home success against bottom side Worcester on Saturday.

From a rugby betting perspective, the home win looks like a foregone conclusion with the Warriors not having won since the opening weekend of the campaign.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs set for an easy home win

This looks to be the easiest fixture that the Exeter Chiefs could go into right now.

The reigning champions play host to bottom side Worcester on Saturday for Premiership rugby betting.

Exeter look to be on course for a return to the postseason. They finished the last round of action in second place.

With their European title defence already having passed them by, it’s full attention on the league.

They are overwhelming 1/33 odds-on favourites in the match outright for Premiership rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021).

We have to go way beyond that to look at the handicap line instead for some better options.

The Chiefs have won their last two league fixtures, earning an excellent 20-12 road win at Bristol Bears last time out.

That saw Exeter close the gap on the leaders to seven points.

It has been one defeat only for Exeter in the last six rounds of Premiership Rugby, a loss at Gloucester just before their European Champions Cup Round of 16 fixture.

It has been three wins in a row in the Premiership for Exeter at Sandy Park.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 11-20 winning margin
16/5

* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021)

 

Exeter’s overall home record in the Premiership this season is at W6 L2.

Four of their six home wins have been by a margin of double figures and we have to imagine that comes into play on Saturday.

An Exeter -24 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021).

That’s a measure of how comfortable they are expected to be in this one, but it could be a good chance for them to rest players if need be.

Exeter have lost one previous game at Sandy Park in the Premiership against Worcester, a 6-5 loss in February 2018.

 

Worcester Preview – Tough day at Sandy Park for the Warriors

This is a thankless fixture for Premiership bottom-side Worcester on the weekend.

Worcester have won one league fixture this season, and that was in the opening round of action.

They are sitting on a W3 L14 record this season when you take into consideration adjustments for cancelled fixtures.

But on the pitch, they have won one.

Since a declared win over Newcastle on February 20th for a cancelled fixture, Worcester have lost seven on the spin.

But one small consolation for them is that they have earned a bonus point in each of the last four rounds of Premiership action.

Three of those were try bonus points, the other a losing bonus point.

In the match outright for rugby betting the win for Worcester Warriors at Sandy Park is at 10/1* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021)

Worcester’s away record in the Premiership is P8 L8.

In terms of losing margins, five of the eight losses for Worcester on the road have been by at least a 17 point margin.

A big part of that is the lack of scoring threat, that in general, Worcester have.

Earlier this season when Worcester hosted Exeter, the Warriors did put in a credible effort.

It was a 17-21 defeat that they suffered against the Chiefs.

A Worcester +25 handicap is at 10/11 odds for rugby betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021)

This is likely to be a tougher assignment at Sandy Park.

 

Exeter Chiefs vs Worcester Betting Advice

But we are going with the Worcester +25 handicap option at 10/11* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on May 7th, 2021)
