Leicester Tigers are one win away from securing a finish at the top of the table in this season’s Premiership Rugby.

The top spot gives them a Playoff semi-final fixture against Northampton Saints or Gloucester.

If they were to lose however and Saracens win their game at Gloucester, the Tigers would be facing reigning champions Harlequins in the Playoffs.

Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers to seal top spot

There is a little work here for the Tigers in terms of churning out a winning performance.

That would give them the top spot and an easier fixture next weekend.

It is their first semi-final in Premiership Rugby since 2017.

As they go into the final round of matches with a three-point lead over Saracens, there is a small margin of error.

The win for Leicester is 2/5 odds-on* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

It is hard to imagine that they will let this slip at Welford Road.

Leicester Tigers have produced a stunning home campaign in this season’s Premiership.

They have won every match played on home turf.

Back in the 2001/02 season they won every single home Premiership fixture and are lining up a repeat of that.

The last time Leicester Tigers lost a home match was in Round 21 last season against Bristol Bears.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester Tigers 6-10 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365)


They should get the win on the board here, at the same time turn the tables on Wasps.

Leicester were beaten by them earlier this season, but have not suffered a season-double defeat against them since the 2016/17 season.

Leicester Tigers have won their last four Premiership home fixtures against Wasps.

The biggest winning margin in that was last season, the Tigers winning 27-8.

It is one final hurdle to get over on their way to the Premiership Rugby Playoffs and the Tigers will likely do it.


Wasps Preview – Can Wasps spoil Leicester’s party?

Wasps are scrapping for a top-eight finish and for that to happen they would have to win this.

They would also need other results to go their way, which doesn’t look likely.

So they may miss out on European Champions Cup rugby next season.

Wasps lost their most recent Premiership Rugby match, getting taught a lesson at home against Sale Sharks.

That snapped a good unbeaten run of four league matches that they had been on (W3 D1).

They do hold on to a two-match unbeaten streak away from home in the league.

Wasps took a win at Gloucester before playing out a draw at London Irish in their most recent road game.

Wasps have claimed just one victory at Welford Road though since 2008 and that was back in September 2016.

So the road victory just doesn’t look too likely in this one.

There is a quote of 21/10 on the win for Wasps in Premiership Rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

The notable thing from their last four visits to Welford Road is a lack of scoring.

Wasps have not reached double figures on the last two there, and haven’t gone above 15 points in their last four at the venue.
