Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers look strong

There has barely been a foot put wrong by Leicester Tigers in the Premiership this season.

They had a bye week last weekend, so have had a chance to refresh a little bit.

Going this deep into a new season with a 100% record is supremely impressive.

In the match outright, Leicester Tigers to win is at a quote of 2/5 as they strive to make it nine wins from nine in Premiership Rugby* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021).

Leicester have won their last eleven matches across all competitions, so are clearly thriving at the moment.

It has been just three losses in the 2021 calendar year they have suffered at Welford Road.

The Tigers were on a four-match winless streak against Quins before beating them in their latest clash.

That was in May at Welford Road.

In total Leicester have won 20 home games against Quins (L4). There are only two other teams they have recorded more Premiership home wins against (Wasps and Bath 21 each).

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021)


In four of their last five home matches against Harlequins, Leicester have scored at least 30 points.

They are on a nine-match Premiership Rugby winning streak.

The last time that Leicester Tigers recorded more, was a ten-match winning streak which ended in March 2002.

Notably, Leicester have been destroying teams in the final quarter of matches.

No team has scored more points in the final 20 minutes of matches this season than Leicester.

A Leicester -6 handicap is at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021).


Harlequins Preview – Quins can challenge

It has been a W5 L3 record produced by Harlequins this season in their Premiership Rugby title defence.

However, after a bright start to the season, Ruins have lost three of their last five league matches.

Last weekend they played host to the London Irish and suffered a big upset.

Quins were defeated by a three-point margin by the Irish at the Stoop, in a match in which the hosts had been long odds-on favourites to win.

On their league travels this season Harlequins are W2 L1, the one defeat coming against Sale.

That is the only league away defeat that they have suffered since early June.

In the match outright, Harlequins are 21/10 underdogs* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021).

But they are not to be easily written off.

They will have a stronger lineup this weekend with Marcus Smith and Alex Dombrandt coming back for the first time since the Autumn Internationals.

At the end of the last round of action, Quins were the top try-scoring team in the Premiership.

They have produced an average of 4.4 tries per game, a league-high.

So Quins are more than capable in attack, but can they do the business in defence against a powerful Leicester team?

Looking at the form of Harlequins at Welford Road, it is not great.

They have claimed one victory in their last seven visits to Welford Road. That lone win in the sequence came in October last year.


Leicester Tigers vs Harlequins Betting Advice

Harlequins were rattled by London Irish last weekend at the Stoop and that will have been a worrying result for them.

That’s three losses in their last five league fixtures now, so some vulnerabilities have crept in.

On paper, this is the toughest away game that they have faced so far this season, and we see them coming up short.

The Leicester Tigers -6 handicap at 10/11 odds isn’t an unreasonable rugby betting proposition* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021).


Key Facts – Leicester Tigers vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Leicester Tigers have lost 1 of their last 7 at home against Harlequins
  • Leicester Tigers have a perfect 8 wins from 8 matches record this season
  • Harlequins are W2 L3 in their last five Premiership fixtures


There is the big home form in the head to head that Leicester have going against Harlequins and that has to be taken into account.

The Tigers look extremely powerful this season and are shaping up as a genuine title contender. While Quins have the attacking threat to trouble them, we don’t see the visitors doing enough over 80 to bank the win.

The Leicester 1-10 winning margin at 9/4 is the other selection for Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:10 GMT on December 3rd, 2021).
