Harlequins are still driving towards a top-four finish for the season but they will want to get back on track here.

There have been three defeats in their last four games in all competitions and need to start building momentum again.

But they are lining up against the league’s bottom club in the form of Worcester here and look set for a home win.

Harlequins Preview – Queens to post a comfortable win

Harlequins lost their last league fixtures, which was an away trip to league leaders Bristol Bears.

Then they saw their European campaign end in their next match as Ulster turned up at the Stoop and hammered them.

So it has been a W1 L3 record from Harlequins in their last four matches in all competition.

All three of those defeats were away from home and they are in decent shape on turf in the Premiership.

In the match outright for rugby betting on this game, Harlequins are an untouchable 1/20 odds on favourite* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Each of the last seven league games that Harlequins have been involved in have been won by the home side on the day.

That means their home form is ticking along nicely. They scored 59 points against Gloucester in their last league game at the Stoop.

The Cherry & Whites are second from the bottom, so we imagine that Quins are going to do a similar job on Worcester.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 11-20 winning margin

* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)


A Harlequins -18 handicap is at a quote of 10/1 in Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Quins are the top-scoring team in the division this season.

From their home games (W4 D1 L2) Quins have averaged

They have 29 points per game. That’s more than good enough, or at least it should be, to blow away Worcester on the weekend.


Worcester Preview – Struggling Warriors face a tough afternoon

There is just no easy game for Worcester at all this season in the Premiership rugby.

The Warriors remain without a win (in a competitive match) since the opening round of action this season.

Their overall record is W3 L12 with having had two declared wins for cancelled matches.

That was a narrow one-point success against London Irish and it’s been all downhill since then.

We certainly don’t see their slumping ending on Saturday at the Stoop.

Worcester are massive 8/1 underdogs in the match outright for football betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

The last time that Worcester won away from home was in September last year.

That was a victory here at the Stoop against London Irish.

This is the first meeting between the two clubs this season with their early meeting having been cancelled.

Worcester Warriors have suffered one defeat only against Harlequins in the Premiership since 2017.

So they have the head to head form.

Harlequins vs Worcester Betting Advice

The win for Harlequins has to be coming here. They are making a lot of changes to their starting lineup after going under strength for their Challenge Cup game against Ulster.

So they are back at full strength and with home form behind them, they should be comfortable in this one.

We can get to the Harlequins -18 handicap at 10/11 odds* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Worcester Betting Tip

  • Harlequins’ last seven league games have been won by the home side on the day
  • Harlequins average 29 points per league game this season
  • Worcester have won one league fixture all season (completed matches)


They trounced Gloucester in their last game at the Stoop and so we think that they are going to do the same to the Warriors.

The Warriors lack the firepower and the defensive strengths to really make a strong fist of this.

Harlequins 11-20 winning margin piques some interest for Premiership rugby betting at 11/4* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).
