There has been no stopping the Leicester Tigers this season in Premiership Rugby as they extended their winning streak last weekend.

It is Bath who pay a visit to Welford Road and the visitors are still trying to post their first win of the new campaign.

Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers can carry on

It has been a perfect season for Leicester Tigers in Premiership Rugby so far as they are setting the standard.

It has been seven wins from seven by them so far.

So they are steaming along and they claimed a tremendous victory last weekend.

They visited the in-form Northampton Saints who are currently sitting fourth in the Premiership.

The Tigers did a number on them, however.

It was a thumping 55-26 away win that the Tigers took. That was some statement.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby, the win for Leicester Tigers on Friday night is at 1/14* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021)

On paper at least, they have had much tougher matches than this one.

In the last four rounds of Premiership Rugby action, Leicester have played one home game.

That ended in a 19-11 victory over Sale Sharks.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 11-20 winning margin

* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021)


Leicester have won six of their last seven Premiership fixtures on home turf at Welford Road.

The only slip that they had in that sequence was against Bristol at the end of last season.

It’s been a perfect three from three for them at the venue for this campaign.

Notably, two of Leicester’s home wins have been against Saracens and Exeter.

Given the form that they have shown, they shouldn’t have too much trouble getting past Bath on Friday.

The Leicester Tigers -18 handicap is at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021)

Bath Preview – Bath still seeking first win

This is a top versus bottom clash in Premiership Rugby for Friday night’s betting.

Bath are bottom of the pile not having collected a victory. It’s been six losses from six games.

All that the West Country club has on the board is three bonus points.

This looks like being the last fixture that they need right now and the away win for Bath is at a quote of 7/1* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021).

In their last fixture, Bath were toppled at home by Wasps, a team who have been struggling for returns this season.

As mentioned above, Leicester Tigers have claimed a home win over Saracens this season.

Bath in contrast were totally smashed by Sarries, conceding more than 70 points against them in a harrowing defeat.

Bath have conceded at least 25 points each of their last four Premiership matches.

It looks like a really big ask for them to turn the form tables around.

Leicester Tigers vs Bath Betting Advice

Bath are having some major struggles this season and their defeat last time out at home against Wasps was a big concern.

Bath don’t look to have the scoring threat in them at all to really trouble Leicester who are just flying at the moment.

It’s the Leicester -18 handicap at 10/11 that is in play for rugby betting* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021).


Key Facts – Leicester Tigers vs Bath Betting Tip

  • Leicester Tigers are on an 8 match winning streak in the Premiership
  • Three of the last four meetings have been won by the home side on the day
  • Bath have lost all six Premiership fixtures this season


Leicester Tigers look unplayable at Welford Road at the moment and have beaten stronger opposition there than Bath in this campaign.

A Leicester 11-20 winning margin is the longer play for rugby betting at a quote of 12/5* (odds recorded 17:41 GMT on November 3rd, 2021).

This should be routine enough for them, even with the shake up in squads because of the internationals.
