Leicester had their winning streak ended last weekend in league action as they were beaten by a single point margin at Bath.

But their home form remains intact and they are the favourites for this Saturday’s meeting in the Premiership with Northampton.

The Saints have won three of their last four games in all competitions and have been scoring for fun.

Leicester Preview – Home form of the Tigers to carry them through?

Leicester Tigers paid a visit to Bath last weekend and suffered a 21-20 loss against the West Country club.

That was a blow for the Tigers, who missed out on a four match winning streak in all competitions.

Still, their home form has been though, winning their last three in a row there.

In that home sequence, Leicester tallied at least 26 points in each of them.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, a Leicester win is at 8/11* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Leicester have posted a W5 L5 record in their last ten Premiership matches.

But again, looking at their bigger form at Welford Road, the Tigers are on a six match winning streak in all competitions.

So that’s impressive stuff and they look favourites for this clash with the Saints.

Elaire this season their scheduled fixture at Franklin’s Gardens was cancelled with Leicester being declared the winners of the contest.

Lecester Tigers have lost two for their last three home games in the premiership to Northampton.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-7 winning margin

* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)


But we have to take that positive home form into consideration fully for Saturday’s clash.

Leicester’s home record this season in the top flight is W6 L2. Again, impressive stuff.

The two defeats in that sequence were against Sale Sharks and Exeter, two of the current top four.

The Tigers don’t have a realistic shot at a top four finish, starting the weekend 12 points away from that objective.

The Tigers are only on a -4 points difference for the campaign, so this could be a tight duel.

A Leicester -1 handicap is at 10/11 odds for the fixture* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Of the home victories that Leicester have recorded in this season’s Premiership, four of them have been by a margin of at least 14 points.

But those bigger wins were against teams down near the bottom of the table.


Northampton Saints Preview – Can the Saints prevail?

The form of Northampton Saints isn’t bad at all, having won three of their last four fixtures in all competitions.

Last weekend they romped to a 44-26 home win over London Irish in League action.

The Saints have scored at least 43 points in three of their last four fixtures (all competitions).

So they have been cutting loose in the scoring department, which would make this trip to Welford Road interesting.

This is a big game for the Saints who are only one place outside of the top four, so they have plenty to play for.

They hold a W9 L07 record for this campaign and they are W6 L6 from their twelve completed fixtures.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting on this fixture, the win for the Saints is at 6/5* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

So the bookmakers clearly indicate that the Saints can get close in this fixture and their recent scoring exploits would support that.

The Saints have tallied fifteen tries in their last two league fixtures.

The only defeat that they have suffered in the last four rounds of league action was against league leaders Bristol on March 31st.

So they do pose a threat in this one without question.

Northampton Saints have only suffered one loss out on the road this season and that is across all competitions.

That one loss was a league defeat against Harlequins back in early March.

It is a W4 L3 record on the road for them in the overall Premiership campaign. Those were against Sale Shark, Bristol Brears and Exeter Chiefs.

Those are all current top-four teams interestingly enough.

There is a quote of 10/11 on the Northampton +3 handicap for the fixture* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

That doesn’t totally look an unreasonable proposition for Premiership rugby betting

The Saints, who have been defensively better than Leicester, do have a reasonable chance in this fixture.
