Premiership Rugby league leaders Leicester Tigers bounced back to winning ways last weekend.

They banked themselves a comfortable home success against Worcester warriors to avoid losing three on the spin.

Will they start to build momentum again as they face their bitter rivals on Friday?

Northampton get back into action for the first time since the end of January and will be looking to enjoy further success away at Welford Road.

Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers back in business

After winning their first eleven Premiership Rugby matches of the season, the Tigers had a little blip.

Back to back losses in the league against Wasps and then Sale Sharks disrupted their momentum.

Those were, however, both on the road.

Back on home soil last weekend, Leicester banked a comfortable 36-16 win over the Worcester Warriors.

So it was back to business as usual for them.

In the match outright for rugby betting on Friday, Leicester are the 2/7 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill).

The last time that the Tigers were beaten at Welford Road was back in June last year by Bristol.

Back in Round 7 of this season’s competition, Leicester took a 55-26 victory against the Saints.

The last time that the Tigers did the season double over their big rivals, was in the 2016/17 season.

Surprisingly, the Leicester Tigers have lost four of their last five at Welford Road against the Saints.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester Tigers 1-10 winning margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill)


The Tigers have lost all but one of their last five home games in Premiership Rugby against Northampton (W1).

That has seen the side turn dramatically in the head to head.

Before that run, the Tigers had lost just four of their previous 20 home fixtures against their local rivals.

It’s been a perfect seven wins from seven played at home by Leicester this season.

After hammering the Saints away from home already this season, coupled with their fine record at Welford Road this term, will the Tigers get their win?

There is a quote of 10/11 on a Leicester Tigers -9 handicap for the fixture* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill).


Northampton Saints Preview – Can Saints do it again at Welford Road?

Four wins in their last five visits to Welford Road is a record that the Saints are going to be proud of.

Can they raid the venue once again on Friday night?

In Premiership Rugby odds, Northampton area 5/2 in the match outright* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill).

The heaviest loss of the season so far for the Saints was that home defeat against Leicester in Round 7.

But Northampton does bring some top away form to the table.

They have won their last two road games in the Premiership and both were recorded by a market of at least 26 points.

Those were victories at Newcastle Falcons and Worcester Warriors.

So there are some claims there that the Northampton Saints have for Friday night’s action.

But things look less bright for them when you look at their overall current form.

That’s because it hasn’t been great by the Saints.

Northampton Saints have won just two of their last eight matches in all competitions (L6).

Those were the two aforementioned road wins in the Premiership.

There is a lot at stake for Northampton Saints who had a bye in last weekend’s round of action.

Victory on Friday night will see them move up into the top four at the expense of Harlequins.

Even if that turns out to be a temporary thing until Quins play this weekend, that’s a huge incentive for the Saints.


Leicester Tigers vs Northampton Saints Betting Advice

Even though the Saints have won their last two Premiership away fixtures they have to be opposed.

With six defeats in their last eight in all competitions, their form isn’t quite there.

It’s the Northampton Saints +9 handicap that is just going to be the pick at 10/11* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Leicester Tigers vs Northampton Saints Betting Tip

  • Leicester Tigers have won all home matches in all competitions this season
  • Leicester Tigers beat the Saints 55-26 earlier this season
  • Northampton Saints have won 4 of their last 5 visits to Welford Road


That’s because Leicester’s most recent home form against the Northampton Saints is pretty poor.

While it has been some season by the Tigers at Welford Road, as they have won every match played there this season, it’s hard to see another big victory happening for them against the Saints.

The home side aren’t at their usual full strength because of the internationals, so it’s the Leicester Tigers 1-10 winning margin pick at 11/4 that gets the nod* (odds recorded 21:15 GMT on February 9th, 2022 at William Hill).
