The final game of the Premiership weekend sees what could be a great clash between Northampton and Exeter.

The Chiefs were knocked down to third place in the table after a victory for Sale on Friday night.

Northampton are sat in fifth place in the table but have missed out on the top-four finish. Can they round off their home campaign in style though?

Northampton Saints Preview – Can Saints pick up another home win?

There was a victory for the Northampton Saints last weekend at home.

That was a 30-25 victory against Wasps.

However, the last time that the Saints managed to claim back to back premiership home wins was in December 2019.

This isn’t exactly the easiest fixture for them to try and back up last weekend’s success in.

The win for Northampton in the match outright for Premiership rugby betting is a quote of 3/1* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Earlier this season Northampton did claim a surprise away win at Sandy Park against Exeter.

That was secured by a one-point margin only. It was the first victory that the Saints had taken against Exeter since back in 2018.

It was back in the 2013/14 Premiership season that the Saints secured the season double over the Devon club.

Northampton have lost two of their last three at home against Exeter at Franklin’s Gardens.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-12 winning margin

Bet at Sportingbet

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


The overall home form of Northampton this season in the Premiership reads W2 L4.

The wins in that sequence were against Worcester and Sale.

In four of their six home fixtures, Northampton Saints have produced at least 20 points.

A Northampton +9 handicap is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

One huge boost for Northampton as they look for that double over Exeter is that they have a near-capacity home crowd to play in front of.


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Can the Chiefs win their final road game?

There was a huge win recorded by Exeter last weekend in the Premiership.

They smashed an understrength Newcastle Falcons by a 74-3 scoreline.

That was their biggest ever Premiership victory.

In that fixture, the Chiefs became the first team since 1999 to score 12 tries in a Premiership fixture.

Exeter are putting in a powerful finish to the regular season and the defending champions will comfortably go to the playoffs.

Exeter have suffered one league defeat since February and that was when they were understrength at Gloucester ahead of European Champions Cup action.

Exeter are a quote of 1/4 odds-on in the match outright for a win on the weekend* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Given the big momentum that they now have behind them, you wouldn’t put it past them.

The Chiefs have scored at least 30 points in four of their last five fixtures.

An Exeter -9 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 odds in Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Exeter have comfortably covered that handicap line in four of their six wins.

It’s all falling into place for them in their title defence it would seem.


Northampton Saints vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

Exeter’s scoreline was flattered last weekend against a Newcastle side who rested most of their key players at Sandy Park.

But still, running in a dozen tries is something that will breed confidence and momentum.

Exeter has plenty of that. An Exeter -9 handicap is well worth considering for rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).
