The big games in the Premiership are coming thick and fast at the moment and this another one.

The focus on this one is all about the top-four chances of Northampton Saints who start the weekend four-points outside of that range.

But both they and Harlequins have been struggling for momentum since the season got back into the swing of things.

Can the visitors get the precious points at the Stoop?

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins snap losing streak

It has been back to back losses in the Premiership for Harlequins.

In midweek they went to Worcester, who are on a huge losing streak themselves and Quins went down 29-14.

That won’t have exactly done wonders for their confidence at all but the bookmakers have them as the 1/6 odds-on favourites for Sunday’s clash against Northampton*(odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).

In their last five games, Harlequins are W2 L3 in the Premiership and not by the victories in that sequence have happened at the Stoop.

So that plays a big part in their favouritism, especially when one of those wins was over leaders Exeter back in February.

Harlequins are a long way outside of the top-four, twelve points after 16 rounds to be exact.

So that’s not a realistic goal for them at this point, nor with their lack of consistent form.

Our betting prediction:
Northampton 1-12 Winning Margin

(odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August)


When Harlequins went to Northampton earlier this season, they suffered a 40-22 loss.

That is a three-match losing streak against the Saints that Quins currently find themselves on.

The last meeting between them at the Stoop was a nailbiter. Northampton got the victory by a single point back in April last year.

Since November last year Harlequins have been beaten only once at the Stoop which was by London Irish in February.


Northampton Saints Preview – Saints no pushover on the road

The first thing that we need to look at here for Harlequins v Northampton rugby betting is the away form of the Saints.

They have lost just one of their last five road games in all competitions and that was to Exeter.

Next, we dive a little deeper into the head to head.

While Northampton have only suffered one defeat in the last five games against Quins, the head to head is better, the more you look back.

Northampton have only suffered two losses in their last thirteen fixtures against Harlequins.

The Saints were actually at the Stoop last weekend when they beat London Irish, who are sharing the ground with Quins.

More away form and more reason to consider Northampton in this match, is that they have lost just one of their last five visits to the venue.

Northampton Saints are W1 L2 since the season picked up again. That one win was the aforementioned success against Irish.

So while they are not holding their form at home, we have to lean back and take a look at their road form.

Because of it, we have to consider a positive handicap line on them

A Northampton +9 looks to be a reasonable option at 10/11 * (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August)

They may well have a chance here away from home again, in what looks like being a tight match.


Harlequins vs Northampton Saints Betting Advice

We can’t ignore the threat of Northampton for this match. Yes, away games are hard to win and the last two for the Saints have been against out-of-form teams.

But the Quins are not exactly running hot at the moment and backing the home side at such a long odds-on price doesn’t take our fancy at all.

So it is all eyes on the away side of Saints for this intriguing Premiership match.


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Northampton Saints Betting Tip

  • Harlequins have lost their last two games at The Stoop
  • Harlequins have won 1 of the last 5 against Northampton
  • Northampton Saints have lost only one of their last five away games


It is also worth remembering that the Saints have something to play for because they are just in touch with the top four. The Quins, not so much.

Because of that, there is just straight-up value in having a look at the Saints collecting the win in the match outright at 19/4* (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).
