Leicester will be finishing second from bottom in the table regardless of the outcome of this final fixture on Sunday.

There is nothing at stake in this fixture for either team now with Harlequins having missed out on a top four finish.

So there is only a bit of pride left hanging around to play for in this one.

Leicester Preview – Can Tigers finish the season on a positive note?

It is a W6 D1 L14 record from Leicester this season and heading into the final round of action, they are the lowest-scoring team in the Premiership.

It has only been an average of 16 points per game from them.

They have lost three of their last four games across all competitions, including their European Challenge Cup semi final against Toulon.

In midweek they faced a league away trip at Bristol and Leicester went down heavily there, suffering a 40-3 loss.

They have home soil for Sunday’s meaningless game and they are the 4/7 odds-on favourites to pick up the match win* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

Earlier this season when they met Quins for the first time there was a dramatic 30-30 draw between the two clubs.

That left Leicester with only one loss in their last five games against Harlequins, so they have a bit of head to head momentum.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-10 Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October)


The Tigers have won their last two home league meetings against Harlequins as well, to further boost their chances of winning.

Overall in the 2020 calendar year, Leicester have only suffered the two defeats at Welford Road in the Premiership.

With Leicester not having lost a home game against the Quins since November 2013, then they may take some stopping on Sunday.

A Leicester -3 handicap is 10/11 odds, so the bookies are expecting a close game, regardless* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).


Harlequins Preview – Quins to reach double figures in wins?

Harlequins have produced a W9 D1 L11 record this season in the Premiership, so will be looking to reach double figures.

They have found a bit of form down the final stretch as they have won three of their last five games.

Two of those three were out on the road as well at London Irish and then Gloucester.

In midweek they played hosts to Wasps and suffered a 23-32 loss in a good competitive match.

So they are not in bad shape at the moment really, but just don’t have that winning record behind them at Welford Road.

So they will head there for this season’s meeting as the 6/4 underdogs, again an indication that the bookmakers think that this is going to be a closely fought thing* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

Interestingly each of the last four league games that Harlequins have played have been won by the away team on the day.

The last time that the Quins won three away games on the spin in a season was back in 2012/13 so it’s a rare occurrence.

We do have to remember that they don’t have anything riding on this game and it is nothing more than an end of season exhibition match really.


Leicester vs Harlequins Betting Advice

We have to go with the home win, because while the overall form of Leicester this season has been generally poor, they have still been hard to beat at Welford Road.

With just two losses there this season, we have to back them to cover a -3 handicap at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

The visiting Harlequins aren’t in bad shape with some recent road wins, but the intensity is probably not going to be high.


Key Facts – Leicester vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Leicester have only lost twice at Welford Road in 2020
  • Leicester have lost just one of their last five against Quins
  • Harlequins have won their last two away games


These end of season matches can be a little trickier to call, but with that in mind, we would have to lean towards the home side on most occasions.

A Leicester 1-10 winning margin option for rugby betting in this match is at 23/10 odds* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).
