This is Saracens first game in the Premiership after having learned their fate as a result of salary cap breach. Regardless of where they finish this season in the Premiership table, they will be relegated as a penalty. They had already started the season with a 35 point deduction. It’s a trip to Harlequins for them on Sundays.

A strange position for relegated Sarries

So Saracens are in a very strange position. After their 35 point deduction at the start of the season, things were starting to look positive for them. Heading into round nine action, they were only a bonus win away from clawing their way off the foot of the table. It has been a W6 L2 record that Sarries have produced in the league.

That’s the same current leaders Exeter have on the board after eight rounds of action. But now, with relegation coming for certain after being penalised further for breaches to the Salary Cap regulations, Saracens are basically playing for nothing. It doesn’t matter if they win, lose or draw, they know their fate. But they do have such a powerful squad and they are the reigning Premiership and European champions as well. The way forward for them may well be to focus solely on retaining that Heineken Cup.

Is the timing right for Quins to bring down Saracens?

Harlequins have lost their last three Premiership fixtures against Saracens and in their last six rounds of action, they have produced just the two wins. Their last home win in the Premiership was recorded back at the start of December, a 23-19 success over Gloucester. From the 47 previous meetings, Harlequins are only at W15 D1 L31 against Saracens. Ten of those fifteen wins happened at the Twickenham Stoop.

The Quins have tallied 168 points this season compared to the massive haul of 227 produced by Saracens. It’s been 18 tries posted by them against the 27 by Sarries. So there is a big discrepancy in quality between the two clubs. The one factor that can’t be accounted for, is just how much the behind-the-scenes goings-on are going to affect the Saracens player on the weekend. It may not be a bad time to back them to topple Saracens at the Stoop.

Harlequins vs Saracens Betting Advice

With England camp in full swing as well ahead of the Six Nations, Saracens are not at full strength for this trip to the Twickenham Stoop. Simply leaning on Harlequins to come up with a victory on home turf, most likely a narrow one, against the troubled Sarries makes a solid proposition.

Key Facts – Harlequins vs Saracens Betting Tip
