Harlequins have managed to produce back to back wins and will be looking to extend that form further on Saturday.

They play host to Leicester who have also found their rhythm.

The Tigers have picked up four wins in their last five games, but are still heading off to The Stoop as the match underdogs.

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins deliver at home?

There has been some positive movement for Harlequins in the Premiership after back to back wins.

The first of those was an impressive one against Wasps and they doubled down with a victory over Bath last weekend.

That leaves them as the 2/9 odds-on favourites to take another win on the weekend as the host Leicester Tigers* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021).

Including adjustments for cancelled fixtures, Harlequins are in good shape at W4 D1 L3 and with a good platform to build on.

At the close of last weekend, they were the second-highest top scorers in the Premiership.

In three of their matches, they have scored a bonus point for at least 4 tries.

At home so far in this campaign, Quins have not actually picked up a win.

They played out a thrilling draw with London Irish and lost against Bristol and Exeter.

Those are defeats which can be excused against arguably the strongest sides in the top flight.

Our betting prediction:
Quins 8-14 winning margin

Bet at Paddy Power

(odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021)


Each of the four wins that Harlequins have taken this season have been by at least 10 points.

For rugby betting, a Quins -8 at 10/11, therefore, isn’t a bad proposition to consider* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021).

In the head to head with Leicester, Quins are unbeaten in their last three (W2 D1).

They have also taken a W2 D1 record in their last three home fixtures against the Tigers.

Last season’s corresponding fixture was a fantastic 30-30 draw.

With Leicester missing their top point-scorer George Ford on England duty, this is a great chance for Quins.


Leicester Preview – Can the Tigers dig out a result?

This is a tricky game for Leicester but their form has been pretty sharp recently.

They have taken a W4 L1 record in their last five matches in all competitions.

In their last league fixture, they cruised to a 41-24 success over the struggling Worcester.

Leicester’s last three games in all competitions have been on home turf.

They have only played one away game in the Premiership this season because of cancelled fixtures.

That ended in a comfortable 22-9 win against London Irish.

Their overall record in the Premiership with fixture adjustments is W4 L4 and interestingly, their points difference is 0.

In the match outright for this fixture a win for Leicester is out at 10/3 underdog odds* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021).

Leicester have actually been scoring pretty well in their most recent fixtures, except for their loss against Sale.

In their last four wins in all competitions, they have put at least 30 points on the board in three of those fixtures.

So the Tigers can be pleased with their output.

But as mentioned above George Ford, who leads the club with 45 points this season, is on international duty.

While they handled that last weekend against Worcester, this is a much tougher task.

A Leicester +10 handicap is at 10/11 in rugby betting* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021).

Can they improve their form even further?


Harlequins vs Leicester Betting Advice

This has the look of being a very good game and a fairly even contest as well.

Quins have won their last two league games and those were away from home, so we expect them to extend this streak back at The Stoop.

We think that they will just about cover a -8 handicap at 10/11* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021).


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Leicester Betting Tip

  • Harlequins have won their last two league games
  • Harlequins are W2 D1 in their last three home games against the Tigers
  • Leicester have won four of their last five fixtures in all competitions


The Tigers are in a fairly confident mood with four wins in their last five fixtures.

After thumping Worcester last weekend they will likely fancy their chances of really getting into this one.

But with no George Ford and being on the road, we have to go with the home team.

There’s no indication of where Leicester are away from home with only one road fixture completed.

Harlequins 8-14 winning margin at 5/2 may just be sitting right* (odds taken 21:29 GMT, February 11th 2021)
