Wasps only entered the action on Round 2 of this season’s Premiership rugby after getting a bye for the first round of action.

They came out blazing as well as they hammered Bristol in some style.

That could mean that there is a difficult afternoon ahead for Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park on Saturday.

Newcastle Falcons Preview – Can Falcons find their winning touch at home?

The two matches for Newcastle Falcons this season in the Premiership have both been won by the away team.

They started their campaign at home but suffered a loss against Harlequins.

But then they responded to claim a good road success at Bath last weekend by seven points.

In Premiership Rugby betting for Saturday, Newcastle are the 13/10 underdogs* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

Newcastle had been on a run of three straight home wins in the league before that loss against Harlequins at the start of this season.

The Falcons are winless in their last seven home fixtures at Kingston Park against Wasps.

They have lost five straight home games against them since October 2011.

Newcastle may well be up against it on the weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021)


Five of the last six Premiership wins that Newcastle have earned have been at home.

But then again, we have to look at them head to head. That tells a different tale.

Newcastle have taken two wins in their last four 14 against Wasps in the Premiership.

In that W4 D1 L11 run of fixtures, there has not been a single home win for Newcastle against Wasps.

They are currently winless in seven home Premiership fixtures (D1 L6) against this opponent.

Both of Newcastle’s matches this season have been settled by a margin of 7 points or fewer.

A Newcastle +3 handicap is at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021)


Wasps Preview – Big chance for Wasps to double up

Wasps got to rest a little longer with a Bye for Round 1 of the new Premiership season coming their way.

Then they came flying out of the gate and tore Bristol apart with a thumping 44-8 win over the Bears.

That was in Coventry, so this will be the first road game for the campaign for Wasps.

So the last away game that they had in the Premiership was against London Irish in Round 21 last season.

Wasps scraped across the line with a 39-36 win.

February this year was the most recent occasion of them recording back to back league wins.

Wasps are 4/6 odds-on in the match outright for rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

They are, after all, looking for their sixth straight win at Kingston Park.

So this isn’t a fixture that should really faze them too much.

Wasps did struggle for consistency in the previous campaign. They last won back to back league games in January.

That was when they went on a three-match winning streak in the competition.

Wasps had shipped an average of 30 points per game across their previous 17 Premiership fixtures before last weekend.

That was a big effort from the defence to keep Bristol Bears to just eight points.

To be fair, Wasps looked on their game last weekend, producing turnovers, looking very strong on their line out and not shipping a single second-half point.

There’s a chance for them here.


Newcastle Falcons vs Wasps Betting Advice

We are going straight with the 4/6 match outright odds on Wasps for Premiership Rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

That’s to trust them to find a bit of consistency, something that they didn’t have at all last season.

Wasps weren’t great at the back in the previous campaign either, but Newcastle are generally not the biggest of attacking threats.

  • Newcastle Falcons have won 2 of their last 14 against Wasps
