Northampton Saints couldn’t get one over on reigning Champions Harlequins in the “Big Game” at Twickenham Stadium last weekend.

They have another tough assignment on their hands in Premiership Rugby this week as they host Saracens.

Sarries smashed Worcester Warriors last weekend to continue their march towards a top-four finish in this campaign.

Northampton Saints Preview – Can Saints hold out at home?

The Saints were defeated last weekend in Premiership Rugby action as they faced Harlequins.

That snapped a two-match winning streak that they had put together in the top flight.

Northampton Saints have produced a good home campaign, however.

They are the 6/4 underdogs at Franklin’s Gardens on Sunday* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021).

It has only been one home defeat in this season’s league campaign for Northampton Saints.

That was against the Leicester Tigers at the end of October.

In their last home match, they romped to a big success over the struggling Bath.

That leaves them with a W4 L1 home record in the campaign at Franklin’s Gardens.

But this is a tough one.

There will be big concerns about Northampton’s defence in this one.

Northampton Saints have conceded at least 36 points in three of their last four matches in all tournaments.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-12 winning margin

But the telling thing from that perhaps is that their one loss at Franklin’s Gardens came against leaders Leicester Tigers.

With second-placed Saracens arriving on Sunday, this may be a touch beyond the Saints.

So it’s the away win for Saracens which is going to just take preference.
