We have come to the end of the Premiership Rugby season and the cream has risen to the top.

Leicester Tigers v Saracens betting is what we have to look forward to in the Premiership Rugby Final on Saturday from Twickenham.

Those were the top two finishers in the regular season and both successfully managed their semi-finals on home turf.

Now the biggest clash of the entire season is here. Who will walk away with the Championship title in their hands?

Leicester Tigers Preview – Can the Tigers take the title?

The Leicester Tigers finished top of the Premiership Rugby table during the regular season.

Can they go all the way and claim the Premiership crown at Twickenham on Saturday?

If they do, then they will be doing so as underdogs.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting Leicester Tigers are the 15/8 underdogs* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 17th, 2022 at William Hill).

One surprising move is that they are starting with Richard Wigglesworth and not Ben Youngs at scrum-half.

Former Saracens player Wigglesworth has made only seven starts for the club this season.

In their semi-final match last weekend, the Leicester Tigers comfortably beat their rivals Northampton Saints.

The Tigers secured a 17-14 victory, meaning that they have won every single home match played this season.

Can they do it on the road, however?

Leicester Tigers have lost three of their last four away games in all competitions, outside of Welford Road.

The last time that Leicester got their hands on the title was in 2013 when they beat Northampton.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-12 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 17th, 2022 at William Hill)


Leicester did beat Saracens in the 2009/10 Premiership Final, so can look back to that day for inspiration.

They have won four of their last six appearances in the final.

Considering that they were almost relegated in 2020, this has been a massive step forward for them under Steve Borthwick.

During the regular season, Leicester Tigers finished seven points clear of second-placed Sarries.

They tallied the fewest number of tries of the top-four finishers in the season, however.

Leicester and Saracens traded home wins during the Premiership Rugby campaign

That leaves the Tigers with just one win in their last six against Saracens in Premiership rugby action.

Leicester Line-up

Steward; Ashton, Moroni, Porter, Potter; Ford, Wigglesworth; Genge (capt), Montoya, Cole, Chessum, Green, Liebenberg, Reffell, Wiese.

Replacements: Clare, Leatigaga, Heyes, Wells, Martin, Youngs, Burns, Scott.


Saracens Preview – Sarries look for sixth title

Considering that this is their first season back in the top flight, this has been a fine effort from Saracens.

In their semi-final match last weekend, they lined up at home against Harlequins.

The reigning Premiership Champions were no match for Sarries at the StoneX, as Saracens posted a comfortable 34-17 win.

Saracens were the top scorers during the regular season campaign.

Max Malins was the top try scorer during the regular season, running in sixteen.

Malins is a quote of 8/1 in the first try-scorer market for rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 17th, 2022 at William Hill).

They are naturally sending out the big guns in this one like Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje, Jamie George, Elliot Daly and Mako Vunipola.

They finished the domestic regular season in some style, really gaining some big momentum.

After losing to London Irish away in mid-February, Sarries won 7 of their 8 following matches.

That defeat in the sequence was on the final day of the regular season when they went to Gloucester with an under-strength team.
