Will they slip up again on the weekend? It is Wasps who pay a visit and they are looking for their third win in four.

Northampton Saints Preview – Saints have fallen away

There have been back to back league defeats for Northampton in the Premiership.

Those were against Gloucester and Newcastle Falcons, two of the current bottom three.

So that has put a big dent in the top-four hopes of the Saints of the season.

They finished last weekend 11 points out of that particular target with just three fixtures left to play.

In the match outright for rugby betting, a win for Northampton is at a quote of 1/2* (odds recorded 00:26 GMT on May 28th, 2021).

The last time that Northampton lost three straight league fixtures was at the very start of this season.

At Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton are W4 L4 in their last eight Premiership fixtures (including some of last season’s fixtures).

So it has been hit and miss from them.

The overall home form that Northampton Saints have produced in Premiership rugby is W2 L4.

That’s a hugely disappointing return from them really if they were harbouring top-four ambitions.

The two home victories that they managed were against Sale Sharks and bottom side Worcester.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-7 Winning Margin

Back in Round 8 Northampton earned a 22-17 victory over Wasps in Coventry.

The last time that they managed to get a season-double completed over their rivals was in the 2014/15 season.

After those last two very poor results, there will be some pressure on the Saints.

Wasps are the highest-scoring teams outside of the top four. So they do have that positive going for them.

But at the close of the last round of action, they were one of only three teams to have conceded more than 500 points.

Wasps +5 handicap is at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 00:26 GMT on May 28th, 2021).

Of the away losses that they have suffered, four of the five have been by a margin of more than 2 points.

So there have been a lot of wide-margin losses for Wasps. But will out-of-sorts Northampton be able to trouble them as much on the scoreboard?
