The only positive about Leicester’s season has been the massive penalties dished out Saracens. Sarries are the ones getting relegated after being slapped with a 105 points deduction for breaches to the salary cap. That’s a reprieve for the Tigers who otherwise would have been in massive trouble.

Leicester can find their winning touch at home

Leicester Tigers are second from bottom in the league with only a W2 D1 L6 record. Again, only the plight of Saracens this season has been something of a positive for Leicester. The only team to have scored fewer points than the Tigers have done in this season’s top-flight campaign is Worcester.

Leicester have produced only one victory in their last six games in the premiership, which was, perhaps notably, a home success. That was a 31-18 victory over Bristol back on January 4th. While they have had their struggles this season early, Leicester have lost only one home game across all competitions since October.

That was when the current Premiership leaders Exeter paid a visit to Welford Road in round six. So the Tigers may be able to dig out a success in this game against a team who have only picked up one win more than they have done in this campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-5 points winning margin
4/1

(odds taken 21:11 GMT Wednesday 12th February)

There has been a trend in fixtures between these two recently, favouring the home team. Each of the last six Premiership contests between Leicester and Wasps have produced a win for the home team on the day.

Leicester have suffered one defeat only at Welford Road since September 2016 at the hands of Wasps. The last two home wins that the Tigers have taken over Wasps in the league have been by a margin of five points or less.

 

Can Wasps keep their away form going?

Wasps start the weekend’s action with a W3 L6 record. They have won two of their last three league fixtures and those two victories happened away from home. If you consider all competitions then Wasps are on a three-match winning streak away from home.

Their last two wins away from home in the Premiership happened against Bristol and Worcester, who are two teams above them in the standings.

The last time, however, that Wasps won four straight away games was back in 2014. It’s not something that any club at any level manages to do very often. Wasps have put a lot more points on the board than what Leicester have done in this Premiership campaign.

They have tallied 36 more than what the Tigers have done. Wasps top Leicester in the try-count for the league season as well, 23-16. But what has let them down has been their defence. No team has conceded more points in the Premiership this season than Wasps.

 

Leicester vs Wasps Betting Advice

Granted there probably won’t be much to choose between the two teams on the day. But there are indicators in the statistics about which way to swing. The last six meetings in the top flight have gone the way of the home team and Leicester haven’t actually been doing terribly at Welford Road recently.

 

Key Facts – Leicester vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • There has been a victory for the home team in each of the last six league meetings between these two
  • Leicester have only won two games this season
  • Wasps have the worst defensive record in the Premiership

 

Exeter are the only team to have had success there of all visitors since October. Then there is the defensive record of Wasps, which is the worst in the Premiership currently. That is where things may just fall down for them on the day. Leicester can sneak a narrow victory in front of their home support.
