Premiership leaders Exeter will look to continue their authority at the top of the table.

They come back into action with a five-point lead at the top over Sale, who will have already faced Harlequins on Friday night.

Exeter are the red hot favourites for the title this season, will they resume business as usual as they take on the struggling Tigers?

Exeter Preview – Business as usual for Exeter

The Exeter Chiefs are the frontrunners for the Premiership title this season, with Saracens out of the way.

It has been another good season from the Chiefs who have put up a W9 L4 record from their 13 matches.

They are the top-scoring side in the Premiership this season, and they are averaging 30 points per game.

As they are taking on a struggling Leicester side then it is reasonable enough to assume that the Chiefs will put a comfortable margin of victory on the board.

An Exeter Chiefs -17 handicap is at 10/11* (odds taken 19:15 GMT, Wednesday 12th August).

Before the break, Exeter won three of their last four games in the Premiership.

In each of their last two league victories, they have scored exactly 57 points.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 21-25 Winning Margin

Exeter and Leicester have already met this season. They were in league action in December with the Chiefs grinding out a 31-22 away win.

Going back to the number of points that Exeter have scored this season, it has been 183 more than what the Tigers have managed.

The difference in tries between the two teams is a gulf, with Exeter having scored 48 compared to just 20 by the Tigers.


Leicester Preview – Tough return game for Leicester

It has been a tough season for Leicester who are on a W4 D1 l8 record only.

Were it not for the massive points deduction for Saracens, then the Tigers would be in big relegation trouble.

But they can breathe easy knowing at least they are not going down a tier.

Leicester are the second-lowest scoring side in the division currently, with only Worcester having produced fewer.

Before the season went into a break, Leicester had posted a W2 L4 record in the final six games across all competition.

But they were starting to mount a little fightback in the league, winning two of their last four against Wasps and Worcester.

Leicester are obviously facing much stiffer opposition in this one, however.

Leicester haven’t managed to score more than 20 points in any of their last six games in all tournaments.

That is naturally a number that doesn’t look anywhere near good enough when it comes to facing the Chiefs.

In the head to head against Exeter, Leicester are W15 D0 L11.

Leicester have failed to get a win on the board in any of their last four league games against the Chiefs.


Exeter vs Leicester Betting Advice

We can only see this going one way and that is a comfortable victory for the Exeter Chiefs.

Can expectations of a tighter margin be assessed because of this being the first match that these have played in a long while?


Key Facts – Exeter vs Leicester Betting Tip

  • Exeter have won the last four league meetings against Leicester
  • Exeter are the current league leaders
  • Leicester are the second-lowest scoring team in the Premiership


Not really.

If anything we think that the Chiefs can easily convert a -17 handicap for that 10/11 quote* (odds taken 19:15 GMT, Wednesday 12th August).

The legs and already shaky defence of the Tigers has to start crumbling badly in the final twenty of this match against such a powerful pack which keeps the ball so well.
