Leicester are having another season of struggles in the Premiership and are really looking for a bit of a lift right now.

They have home advantage on Saturday, which could help them towards that goal.

Leicester Tigers play host to Worcester Warriors who are one of the three teams currently beneath them.

Leicester Preview – Can the Tigers produce the goods?

It has been just one league victory for Leicester in the Premiership since the opening round of action (not including walkovers).

That was a home win over Bath on January 3rd, so it’s been a month since they last had a taste of success on the domestic front.

This is a bit of a basement battle in the Premiership and Leicester are 2/5 odds-on to win it* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

Leicester did claim a win over Worcester late February, which saw them snap a three-match losing streak of league games against the Warriors.

But the Tigers have lost three of their last four at Welford Road against Worcester Warriors.

As stated they are facing a team beneath them in the standings at the moment.

While the scoring output of Leicester hasn’t been great, Worcester’s is worse.

So there should be a decent chance for the Tigers to be successful here.

Our betting prediction:
Worcester 1-7 winning margin

A Leicester Tigers -6 handicap at even money looks a decent enough proposition for rugby betting* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

So far on home soil in this season’s Premiership campaign, Leicester have beaten Gloucester and Bath (two of the four teams beneath them in the standings) and have lost to Sale Sharks and Exeter Chiefs.

We think that the victories over Gloucester and Bath, really are the big indicators.

In their five completed fixtures, Leicester averaged 22 points per game.

We don’t expect them to run up a big score, but we do expect the home win.


Worcester Preview – Can the Warriors find a way to win?

Worcester are W1 L5 in the Premiership this season and one of those wins was a declared victory for a cancelled fixture.

The only league success that they have actually earned on the pitch was against the London Irish.

That was a one-point margin of success back at the start of the season.

So things look pretty bad for Worcester Warriors at the moment who are 2/1 underdogs in the match outright for football betting in this fixture* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

Since November 2019, the Warriors have taken only one success on the road in all competitions.

That was a victory over London Irish in September.

They do have that positive of having won three of their last four trips to Welford Road though.

But it still looks as if they have a massive uphill battle to go through on this latest trip there.

Worcester are averaging just 13.5 points per league game this season.

Worcester have lost at Sale Shark, Bristol Bears and Northampton Saints in their three away games of this campaign.

Each of the defeats were by at least seven points. Two of them were by margins of more than 16 points.

In no Premiership game, this season have Worcester managed to record more than 17 points in a fixture.

That’s a big shortfall in scoring output and we think that Leicester roll over them.


Leicester vs Worcester Betting Advice

The win for Leicester is going to be our selection for the game, but we can’t bother with the match outright.

So a Leicester -6 handicap fits the bill for our rugby betting at even money* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

They should have the upper hand at home.


Key Facts – Leicester vs Worcester Betting Tip

  • Leicester have lost three of their last four home league games against Worcester
  • Leicester have won once since the opening round of action
  • Worcester have earned only one league away win since November 2019


Worcester are really down on their luck at the moment and just don’t carry a big enough attacking threat.

So the Warriors will probably come up short in this one again.

For a little bit of an extended odds prospect, we are plumping for the Leicester 1-7 winning margin at 5/2* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).
