Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers sitting pretty

Three wins from three for the Leicester Tigers in this season’s Pool stage see them with a chance of finishing in the top spot.

The Tigers started their campaign away at Bordeaux-Begles.

That was a gritty, workmanlike performance that they put in to take a 16-13 win.

The fixture was the first-ever between the two clubs.

Across all competitions this season, Leicester have lost just one match.

That was a surprise league upset away at Wasps in their most recent Premiership game.

But they bounced back to form last weekend to take a last-gasp win at Connacht in the Heineken Cup.

In the match outright, Leicester Tigers are the 1/4 odds-on favourite* (odds recorded 18:42 GMT on January 20th 2022 at Bet365).

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-7 Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 18:42 GMT on January 20th 2022 at Bet365)


Leicester Tigers will be looking to buck a little trend in this one on the weekend.

They have lost their last two home matches against French opposition in the Heineken Cup.

Those were both against Racing 92, having gone unbeaten in 16 previous such home matches (W15 D1).

After winning only 2 of their previous 14 European Champions Cup fixtures, the Tigers are now on a three-match winning streak.

A Leicester -8 handicap is at a quote of 5/6 for Saturday’s fixture* (odds recorded 18:42 GMT on January 20th 2022 at Bet365).

Will the Tigers push hard for that top spot in the Pool?


Bordeaux Preview – TOP14 side to come up short?

Even though Bordeaux haven’t booked qualification to the Round of 16 yet, they should get there regardless.

It would take a sizable upset for them to not reach the next stage.

After losing their opener to Leicester, they bounced back to thrash Scarlets in their second fixture.

That leaves them with a W1 D1 L1 return from this year’s Pool stage, with a draw awarded in their first scheduled match against Scarlets.

Bordeaux are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in all competitions.

The only defeat that they have suffered in their last six, was this season’s Pool stage meeting with Leicester.

So the TOP14 side are not a pushover by any stretch of the imagination.

In the match outright, they were the underdogs at Franklin’s Gardens.

There is a quote of 10/3 on Bordeaux producing the victory* (odds recorded 18:42 GMT on January 20th 2022 at Bet365).

Bordeaux are on a three-match winning streak away from home in the Pool stage of the Heineken Cup.

All three of those wins were recorded by a margin of no more than 7 points.

That burst of away form came after they had lost six of their previous eight.

Bordeaux-Begles have won four of their last five away matches in all tournaments.

They may present a challenge but may ultimately come up short against a very strong Tigers squad.


Leicester Tigers vs Bordeaux Betting Advice

We are sticking with the home win for the Tigers who really don’t have to go hard at this game.

Therefore a Bordeaux-Begles +8 handicap is the pick at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:42 GMT on January 20th 2022 at Bet365).
