Harlequins suffered the first loss of their title defence campaign last weekend as Sale got the better of them.

They return to the comforts of home soil this weekend as Quins look to bounce straight back to winning ways.

Harlequins Preview – Quins to bounce back with a win

Reigning Premiership Rugby champions Harlequins were brought down to earth last weekend.

After winning their first three matches of their title defence, they were toppled at Sale last weekend.

Overall, that was a six-match winning streak in Premiership rugby that came to end with a 22-28 defeat against the Sharks.

But they return to the Stoop this weekend and they face a somewhat easier challenge.

Harlequins are the 1/7 odds-on favourites in the match outright for rugby betting* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

They have such a good record at the Stoop.

The last time that Harlequins were beaten at home in Premiership action was on Boxing Day last year.

Harlequins have claimed a win in their last 10 Premiership home matches.

Quins won both meetings with Bath in last season’s top flight.

Our betting prediction:
Quins 11-20 Winning Margin

* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021)


Against Bath, Harlequins hold a W7 L3 record from their last ten played at the Stoop against the West Country club.

Their current ten-match league home winning streak is their best ever in the history of the tournament.

Not only that, but Quins have also claimed a try-bonus in all but one of those ten victories at the Stoop.

The last time that Quins won three straight league matches against Bath Rugby was in 2016.

Harlequins carry a huge attacking threat. A Quins -15 handicap for rugby betting is at 10/11* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

They have tallied 87 points from their two home fixtures played this season.


Bath Preview – Bath’s struggles continue

Four games into the new Premiership season and it’s been four defeats for Bath Rugby.

They have collected three bonus points, but that’s it.

Bath are the lowest-scoring team in the top flight currently and clearly have some issues to sort out.

The win for Bath for rugby betting is at 9/2* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

Bath last won an away game in the league in mid-March when they visited Newcastle Falcons.

So far on their travels, this season Bath have gone down against Sale Sharks and Bristol Bears.

Both of those defeats were by a margin of no more than five points.

But there was a really tough loss for them last weekend as they were hammered 17-71 at home by Saracens.

Bath Rugby have not managed to score more than 20 points in a league fixture this season.

They will probably be up against it at the Stoop.

They’ve taken points from 50% of such entries. They just haven’t gotten into that position enough.
