Wasps are on the brink of securing a top four finish for the season, but the work isn’t done yet with Sale and Bristol waiting to pounce

So this is a tricky penultimate game of the season for Wasps who make the trip to The Stoop to face Harlequins.

Quins are out of top-four contention which means that they really have nothing at stake for this fixture. Will that play to Wasps’ advantage?

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins upset Wasps?

Harlequins are sitting in sixth place in the Premiership with two to play, but they are too far away from a shot at a top four finish.

It is a W9 D1 L10 record that they have produced so far and of the current top seven in the standings, Quins have conceded more points than anyone (502).

Because of the recent European action, the last league match that Quins played was back on September 14th when they took a good win away at Gloucester.

That has been back to back success for them on the road in the Premiership now.

Interestingly they have won their last four home games and they had very tough fixtures in front of them in that sequence.

We will break that down next, but in the match outright a Harlequins win is at 11/8* (odds taken 00:12 GMT Monday, 28th September).

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 00:12 GMT Monday, 28th September)


Quins have beaten Exeter, Sale, Northampton and Bath in their last four home Premiership fixtures.

That’s three of the current top four teams in the standings, so Harlequins have held their own at The Stoop.

When they met Wasps earlier this season Harlequins took a 28-22 win away and that is three wins in their last five against them.


Wasps Preview – Wasps face a tough challenge at The Stoop

Wasps have produced some great form since the season was restarted, and they have won their last four on the bounce.

The only defeat that Wasps have suffered in their last ten games was a home reverse against Sale back at the end of August.

In their last match a couple of weeks ago, Wasps powered their way to a highly impressive 59-35 win over fellow top-four challengers Bath.

So they are bang in form and have been recognised for that as Wasps are the 8/13 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (odds taken 00:12 GMT Monday, 28th September).

However, it has not been all plain sailing for them on recent visits to The Stoop as Wasps have lost two of their last three trips there.

Wasps though are scoring so very well at the moment and with them having amassed a tally of 584 points in their matches this season, that put them only second in the Points For statistic behind leaders Exeter.

Impressively Wasps have tallied 71 tries for the season, again second only to Exeter in that regard.

In contrast, Harlequins have put 56 tries on the board for the campaign.

So with them looking to secure points for a top four finish, there should be some appeal in the free-scoring visitors to cover a -4 handicap at 10/11* (odds taken 00:12 GMT Monday, 28th September).


Harlequins vs Wasps Betting Advice

This is a very good-looking match because Harlequins are very good on home soil and are really tough to knock over.

So on their day, they could give Wasps a very tough time of things here. But it’s been a couple of weeks since they played and they have nothing at stake.

In contrast to that, Wasps are still eyeing a spot in the postseason and just can’t relax their efforts.


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Harlequins have won their last four home fixtures
  • Harlequins have won two of their last three home games against Wasps

So we think that the extra motivation from the visitors could be such a big telling factor in this one and we are supporting the away win.

Wasps have been firing off tries left, right and centre and we like the Wasps -6 handicap option at Evens* (odds taken 00:12 GMT Monday, 28th September).

Their shot at a place in the top four could hinge on what kind of performance they can come up with on the road on Monday.
