There has been a bit of pressure mounting on Bristol who have lost a big advantage at the top of the Premiership table recently.

So there could be an exciting finish in store as we look at the penultimate round of Premiership action.

Will the Bears be able to get a win on the board as they head out on the road to face a Leicester side who have some decent home form?

Leicester Tigers Preview – Can Leicester topple the leaders?

There was a narrow away win for Leicester last weekend. The Tigers just got across the line with an 18-17 win at bottom side Worcester.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting on Saturday, the win for the Tigers is at 17/10* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

It has been back to back league successes for Leicester.

They collected a superb victory against Harlequins before getting the better of Worcester.

The last time that they managed to win three in a row was three years ago.

But there has been some excellent form by Leicester Tigers at Welford Road this year.

Since the end of January, the Tigers have lost one home game, which was against Northampton in Round 17 of league action.

That has left Leicester with a very good W7 D3 record from their home campaign in the Premiership.

Two of their three losses at Welford Road this season in the league came against Sale and Exeter, two of the current top four.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021)


There has been a decent output in attack from Leicester at home this season in the league.

In all but three of their matches did they put at least 26 points on the scoreboard.

On each of the occasions that they didn’t, they lost.

The average margin of defeat for Leicester at home in their three losses was a margin of 12 points.

A Leicester +6 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 for Premiership rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

We are at the point of the season where there is nothing at stake for Leicester in the league.


Bristol Bears Preview – Can the Bears respond to Sale setback?

League leaders Bristol bears came up short last weekend in a 12-22 away defeat at Sale Sharks in a top-four clash.

That leaves them with a W3 L2 record in their last five league fixtures.

The two losses in that run of league games were against other top-four teams.

Bristol Bears are the match outright favourites.

They are a quote of 1/2 to get the win on Saturday at Welford Road* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Looking back at their longer form, Bristol Bears have suffered just those two defeats in Premiership since round eight.

Not since January 2020 have they lost back to back away games in league action.

Earlier this season Bristol claimed a 17-3 victory over the Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate.

Can they complete the season double against the Tigers?

Bristol Bears have only been defeated once by the Tigers in their last five meetings. That was in January 2020 at Welford Road.

The Bears have managed just one league win at Welford Road. That lone success happened in 2019.

We would expect the Bears to get back to winning ways this weekend.

Their away record for the campaign is W7 D1 L1 which has been an excellent return.

Only three of those victories were recorded by a margin of double fixtures.

This doesn’t look to be the easiest of road fixtures for them and a Bristol -6 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

They have covered that line in all but two of their road wins this season.


Leicester Tigers vs Bristol Bears Betting Advice

Given that Bristol bears are arguably the best side in the country at the moment, we expect a bounce-back performance from them.

We think that they can get there to cover the -6 handicap at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

There would be hesitation about pushing that line any further than that.
