There was an excellent result for Harlequins last weekend as they paid a visit to the in-form Gloucester and dug out a narrow victory.

That’s back to back league wins for them now and Quins look to be building a nice bit of momentum once again.

But will Exeter Chiefs show up at The Stoop on the weekend and put a halt to that? The Devon club arrive in form as well having won their last two.

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins make a statement?

It is now a four-match winning streak by Harlequins in all competitions after having had a little wobble in their form.

The reigning Premiership champions have a tough one on their hands at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday.

In the match tonight, Harlequins are the 5/6 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

If they were to take the win in this one, that would be a pretty big statement of intent by them.

Quins already hold a six-point lead over Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership standings.

Victory over the visitors would also see Quins keep Exeter out of the top four at the halfway point of the season.

From their home matches this season in the league, Harlequins are W4 L2.

The two defeats in that run of form were against Saracens and more surprisingly, one against London Irish.

Quins have suffered only two home defeats since mid-April last year in all competitions.

It is only one home loss for Quins in Premiership Rugby home matches in their last fourteen such fixtures (W12 D1).

That’s some powerful home form. Interestingly they have very little of that against Exeter.

Our betting prediction:
Quins -3 handicap

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022)

Harlequins have banked just three victories over the Exeter Chiefs in the last fifteen meetings with them (L12).

The last time that the two clubs met, Quins came out on top which was in last season’s Premiership Final.

These are two of the heavyweights going at each other and history suggests that a close encounter is going to happen.

Only one of the last seven Premiership fixtures between them have been settled by a margin of more than four points.

A Quins -3 handicap is at a quote of 5/4 for Rugby Betting* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

Can the Londoners continue with their strong home form?


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Can the visitors prevail?

This is going to be a big test for Exeter Chiefs as they make a visit to the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday afternoon.

It is a run of three straight wins for Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership since losing to Newcastle in early November.

In the match outright for rugby betting, the Chiefs are 21/20 underdogs* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

The current form of Exeter has seen them take five wins in their last six matches in all competitions.

The one slip was at Glasgow in the European Champions Cup in mid-December.

Exeter Chiefs do boast some very positive away form.

Since losing at Leicester in mid-September, Exeter have since won all four Premiership away fixtures played.

That includes some good victories at Sale Sharks and Gloucester notably.

The Chiefs can never be written out of the equation, but they have never before won five away matches in a row in one season of Premiership Rugby.

Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

The home record of Harlequins is what we are going to lean on to come up with our rugby betting tip in this high-profile match.

Quins again won all but two of their last 14 home league games. They have produced an average of 39.5 per game in that sequence.

Last weekend they showed a lot of character to win at Gloucester and they can follow up at home as the 10/11 favourites* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Harlequins have lost six of their last eight at The Stoop against Exeter
  • Harlequins have won 12 of their last 14 league home matches (D1 L1).
  • Exeter Chiefs have won their last four league away games


Exeter have winning form on the road and deserve huge credit for that. They also won convincingly at the Stoop on their previous visit.

With six wins in their last eight league trips to the Stoop, Exeter are not going to be brushed aside lightly.

But we are rolling with the Quins -3 handicap at 6/5 as they are hard to oppose on home turf and that keeps the trend of results by narrow margins alive when these two meet* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).
