The Saints ended a losing streak last weekend by claiming a good away win for themselves at Bristol.

Can they get some momentum going now as they play host to the struggling Bath?

After a loss at home against the Exeter Chiefs last weekend, Bath still remain winless in their top-flight campaign.

Northampton Saints Preview – Saints should taste success at home

This has to be a winnable fixture for Northampton Saints on the weekend, just the kind of match that they need.

After a four-match losing streak in all competitions (two in the league) they picked up a victory last weekend.

Northampton went to Ashton Gate to face Bristol last weekend and took a convincing 36-20 victory.

In the match outright for Saturday’s meeting with Bath, Northampton are very strong 1/4 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021).

On home turf this season, the saints are W3 L1.

The one defeat in that sequence happened against current league leaders Leicester.

That was in Northampton’s last home match and the last time that the Saints lost back to back home matches was more than twelve months ago.

The Saints have tallied at least 23 points in all home league fixtures this season.

They should be strong enough to get past Bath on Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Saints 11-20 winning margin

* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021)


Interestingly Northampton have lost their last two matches against Bath, including their last one at Franklin’s Gardens against them.

In total, the Saints have won two of their last ten against Bath only.

But they look convincing enough to turn the tables against this opponent on the weekend.

A Northampton -10 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021).

Given that Bath are having a terrible time of things this season, this is an opportunity that the Saints shouldn’t miss.


Bath Preview – No sign of revival for Bath

Relegation from the Premiership has been put on hold again this season which is probably going to be a good thing for Bath.

The West Country club have lost all eight matches of their campaign.

All they have on the board are four losing bonus points.

It almost goes without saying that they are the underdogs at a quote of 3/1 in Premiership Rugby betting for Saturday* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021).

Looking at their away form, Bath have not claimed a road win in any of their last seven away from the Rec in the Premiership.

This is their second-longest losing streak of road form in the Premiership.

Their longest was a 12 match losing streak which ended in 2007.

There just doesn’t appear to be any hint of a revival coming from Bath at the moment.

Bath have conceded more points in each away game this season than they did in the previous one.

So their output in defence has been getting worse.

In their last road game Bath lost 40-23 at Leicester Tigers, who are, granted, top of the Premiership table.

But looking at things overall, they have shipped at least two tries and at least 20 points in each of their last eight matches in the Premiership.

Of the last 13 occasions when they have conceded at least 20 points in a match, Bath have lost 12 of those.


Northampton Saints vs Bath Betting Advice

Just about the only positive that Bath have is a good head to head record against the Saints.

But that doesn’t look likely to stand them in good stead on the weekend.

We have to go straight to the home win as the likely outcome in this scrap at Franklin’s Gardens.

The Northampton Saints -10 handicap is definitely on the radar at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021).


Key Facts – Northampton Saints vs Bath Betting Tip

  • Northampton Saints have won 2 of their last 10 against Bath only
  • Northampton Saints are W3 L1 at Franklin’s Gardens this season
  • Bath remain winless after eight matches of the new Premiership campaign


The Saints should be good enough and buoyed in confidence from last weekends’ effort to cover that.

Bath are not a scoring threat and there are holes all over their defence.

The Northampton Saints 11-20 winning margin has some appeal at 13/5* (odds recorded 17:45 GMT on December 2nd, 2021).
