Harlequins are in a good position to make a run at the top four this season, which is where they finished the last round of action.

This looks to be a comfortable home fixture for them on Sunday, as they are the clear favourites to win in Rugby Betting Odds.

Wasps have had a below-par campaign and with such a leaky defence, could have another difficult away day on their hands against the league’s top points-scorers.

Harlequins Preview – Big chance for Quins

Having watched Northampton fail badly in a heavy loss at home against Gloucester on Saturday, there is a big opportunity for Harlequins on Sunday.

A win for them will now really strengthen their chance of a top-four finish.

Four points would move them eight points clear of fifth-placed Northampton

In the match outright, Harlequins are the favourites at 4/11* (odds recorded 23:12 GMT on May 6th, 2021).

They will be looking for the third straight win over Wasps in the Premiership.

On home soil in the Premiership, Harlequins are undefeated in their last five fixtures in current form.

That has been their best sequence at the Twickenham Stoop since 2016.

Things, therefore, do look good for them on Sunday.

Quins have won their last two league fixtures, getting the better of Worcester Warriors and London Irish in that sequence.

They have been scoring freely, another factor which should help them get four points.

Quins have tallied at least 50 points in two of their last three home fixtures in all competitions.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 1-12 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

* (odds recorded 23:12 GMT on May 6th, 2021)


The last time that Harlequins did deliver three straight league wins was back in February.

For rugby betting, a Harlequins -7 handicap is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 23:12 GMT on May 6th, 2021).

The last three times that Quins have met Wasps, the fixture has produced a win for the home side on the day.

One slight negative against Quins is that they have lost their last two at home against Wasps in league action.

They will be boosted by the return of captain Stephan Lewies who has been out since March.

Queen are also the top-scoring team in the Premiership as they look to complete a season double over Wasps.


Wasps Preview – Tough afternoon ahead for Wasps

In the last round of the league, action Wasps earned an exciting 39-29 home win over Bath.

They badly needed that result as well as they had been on a three-match losing streak in all competitions before that.

In Premiership rugby betting for Sunday, Wasps are 9/4 underdogs in the match outright* (odds recorded 23:12 GMT on May 6th, 2021).

That’s understandable enough. Wasps have won only two matches in the last eight rounds of Premiership Rugby.

One was at Newcastle and the other was at home against Bath in that sequence.

That victory over Bath in Round 17 was the first time since January that Wasps had earned a try bonus point in a fixture.

It is hard to see how they produce the scoring threat to stand toe to toe with Quins at The Stoop.

The other side of that of course is trying to tame the powerful attack of Harlequins.

Wasps have taken a W4 L4 away record this season, taking two wins in their last five such fixtures.

That is not the worst of returns from them on the road in what has been a tough season.

But some of that has to be put into perspective of course.

Their last two wins away from home have been against Worcester and Newcastle, the current bottom two in the table.

A Wasps +7 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 23:12 GMT on May 6th, 2021).

We think that is a little too risky against the free-scoring Quins on the day.
