Exeter have strolled to back to back wins to start their title defence in the Premiership with.

So the Chiefs machine rolls on and they head out on the road this weekend to face Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.

Leicester have only taken the one win in their last four league games, a win over Gloucester on the opening weekend of the new season.

A tougher task awaits them.

Leicester Preview – Can the Tigers pull off an upset?

There’s a tough one ahead for Leicester Tigers on Saturday, who have won only one of their last four games in the top flight.

That was a 38-15 victory over Gloucester in the opening round of this season’s Premiership.

In facing up to the champions on Saturday, the Tigers are the underdogs here at a quote of 11/2* (odds taken 22:53 GMT, Thursday, 3rd December).

The last time that Leicester Tigers won back to back home games was in February of this year.

Leicester’s overall home record from the last campaign was W6 L5 so it wasn’t a bad return from them at Welford Road.

But again there was that lack of consistency in failing to win back to back fixtures.

In their home game against Exeter last season, the Tigers fell to a 22-31 loss.

Leicester have managed to win only one of their last eight against Exeter, but that lone win in the sequence, a 13-20 success, was at Welford Road in 2017.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 16-20 Winning Margin

Bet at Betfair

(odds taken 22:53 GMT, THursday, 3rd December)


It has been four tries that Leicester have produced in their two games this season, conceding three.

When you stack that up against the tally of 11 that the Chiefs have secured so far for themselves, then in all likelihood the Tigers will fall short.

Exeter as well, have not conceded a single try against them in this season’s campaign.

The Tigers have lost four of their last five fixtures against Exeter in all competitions.


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Will Exeter keep rolling on?

It has been an impressive start to the new Premiership campaign by the Exeter Chiefs who have taken back to back wins.

They came out of the blocks firing, securing a 33-3 away win at Harlequins on the opening weekend of the season.

They followed that up with an equally dominant 40-3 victory at Sandy Park against Bath, who were one of last season’s top four finishers.

So that’s some immense power that the Chiefs have produced already, and they are already looking unplayable.

They are the obvious 2/9 odds-on favourites for the win in the match outright for rugby betting* (odds taken 22:53 GMT, Thursday, 3rd December).

Exeter have tallied 83 points on their last two trips to Leicester in Premiership action.

Naturally, we have to go to the handicap market for rugby betting.

An Exeter -15 handicap is at 10/11 for Saturday’s game* (odds taken 22:53 GMT, Thursday, 3rd December).

It wouldn’t be a surprise at all if the Chiefs won this game, and given what they have produced already this season, that handicap doesn’t look a big stretch.

Exeter Chiefs won seven of their eleven away games last season and only in three of those did they fail to post more than 18 points.

The last time they were beaten in any competition now was back at the start of October when they paid a visit to Wasps in league action.

In the overall head to head, they are 12-15 against the Tigers, with five of those twelve wins against Leicester having happened away from home.

But the league winning momentum in the head to head is with the Chiefs at the moment.

Will they be on course for a third bonus-point win of the season already?


Leicester vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

Leicester can be forgiven for letting this fixture slide.

It’s almost a mission impossible for them (and anyone for that matter) meeting Exeter at the moment.

We looked at the Tigers +15 handicap at 10/11 and just can’t quite get there, instead we are going the other way for the Chiefs -15* (odds taken 22:53 GMT, Thursday, 3rd December).

The forward power, the class and momentum that Exeter have at the moment is absolutely huge.


Key Facts – Leicester vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Leicester haven’t won back to back home games in the league since February
  • Exeter have only conceded six points in total in their opening two fixtures of the campaign
  • Exeter Chiefs have tallied 11 tries in their two games this season


To give up just six points in total in two fixtures is just staggering stuff from Exeter and it shows how much they stifle their opponents.

We are going to the winning margin market for rugby betting where an Exeter 16-20 option is at 5/1*(odds taken 22:53 GMT, Thursday, 3rd December).

We just don’t see Leicester holding on for 80 minutes up front against such a power unit.
