London Irish Preview – Can the Exiles snap losing streak?

Last weekend the London Irish suffered a narrow defeat at Kingsholm against Gloucester.

That was a 30-28 loss that they suffered against the Cherry & Whites.

That result left the Exiles on a five-match losing streak in the Premiership.

The last time that they won was at home in Brentford against Bath at the end of March.

It has now been back to back league defeats for London Irish.

But the last time they suffered three straight home losses was last season when they were playing at the Twickenham Stoop.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for London Irish is at 4/6* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Their overall home form this season is W5 D1 L3. So it has not been a bad return from them.

All three of their home losses were against teams currently in the top four.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021)


London Irish have scored at least 20 points in all but two of their home fixtures this season.

But we don’t see a big margin of victory heading their way.

The Exiles have secured only one of their home victories by a margin of double figures.

A London Irish -2 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

That just indicates how close of a fixture that this is expected to be on Saturday in Brentford.


Wasps Preview – Can Wasps find a road win?

Wasps were away from home last weekend as they suffered a 25-30 loss at Northampton.

It has been one away victory in the Premiership for Wasps since February. That lone victory was at Newcastle back in Round 14.

But the head to head between these two clubs is pretty interesting.

Four of the last five meetings have ended in a victory for the away side on the day.

A Wasps victory is at a quote of 13/10 in the match outright* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

The road record for Wasps this season W4 L5.

Only in three of those away games did Wasps manage to produce more than 20 points on the scoreboard.

So we don’t see this being a particularly high-scoring affair.

A Wasps +2 handicap is there at the even money quote in Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021)

Wasps have produced a higher output in attack than that of London Irish this season.

But they are much worse off in the defensive department.

So this all balances out and on top of all that, there is only a 1-point difference in the standings between these two in favour of London Irish.

When they have lost this season away from home, Wasps have gone down heavily for the most part.

Four of their five away defeats have been by a margin of at least 16 points.

None of their four road wins were by a margin of more than 8 points.


London Irish vs Wasps Betting Advice

Wasps may just be worth rolling with in this one in what is probably going to be a really tight affair.

Wasps have been scoring much better recently, even in defeat, such as in their 48-46 loss at Harlequins recently.

So we think that they can produce just enough attack to topple the Exiles.

A Wasps victory is at 13/10 for our first rugby betting tip* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).
