Leicester Tigers Preview – Can the Tigers hold out at Welford Road?

The Tigers have a tough home game on the horizon for Saturday as they host the in-form Quins.

It has been one victory only for Leicester in their last four fixtures in all competitions.

That was their European Challenge Cup semi-final against Ulster.

While they have been hit and miss, it hasn’t been bad form from them at Welford Road.

Leicester Tigers have suffered one home defeat since the end of January in all competitions.

That was a league defeat against Northampton in Round 17.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for Leicester is the 2/1 underdog opinion* (odds recorded 23:30 GMT on 13th May 2021).

Looking at their home record for the season, it is very respectable.

The Tiers are W6 L3 at Welford Road in the Premiership.

Two of the three losses in that sequence were against Sale and Exeter, both of which are on course for a top-four finish.

But then so are Saturday’s opponents Harlequins.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 6-10 wining margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 23:30 GMT on 13th May, 2021)


Two of Leicester’s three home losses were by a margin of double-figures.

As for their victories, four of the six were earned by margins of double figures.

But they are underdogs here and earlier this season they took a 24-37 loss away at Harlequins.

A Leicester +6 handicap is at a quote of even money in rugby betting for this fixture* (odds recorded 23:30 GMT on 13th May 2021).

The Tigers will also have to overturn a losing head to head record, having lost four on the bounce against Quins.


Harlequins Preview – Quins in good shape

It is a three-match winning streak that Harlequins are on after winning a thriller against Wasps last weekend.

Harlequins looked down and out at home against Wasps in a high-scoring game, before they came up with a very late converted try to win.

It was a tremendous 48-46 win that they bagged in that match.

That’s twice now in their last three fixtures that they have scored at least 48 points in a league game.

Harlequins are the top scoring team in the Premiership this season.

It is a quote of 2/5 on them to produce the victory on Saturday at Welford Road* (odds recorded 23:30 GMT on 13th May 2021).

If they play the way that they have been, then we have a hard time not seeing that happen.

After their win last weekend, Harlequins were left in fourth place in the table, now with at least a nine-point cushion over challengers behind them.

The away record that Quins have earned in this season’s Premiership stands at W5 L3.

Of their five wins, four of them were pulled off by a margin of at least 13 points.
