With a loss against Gloucester last weekend, the Northampton Saints slipped to their fourth straight league defeat.

So they are running through a tough patch at the moment, but they may have a chance to bounce back on the weekend.

They play host to Wasps on Sunday who have lost their last two Premiership Rugby fixtures, both out on the road.

Northampton Saints Preview – Can the Saints snap their slump?

Northampton Saints lost away at Gloucester last weekend in a dramatic finish at Kingsholm.

The late try that Northampton conceded saw them fall to their fourth league defeat in a row.

If we dial into their home form only then it makes worse reading for the Saints.

Northampton have lost their last five matches played at Franklin’s Gardens in all tournaments.

The Saints are even money underdogs in the match outright for a win on Sunday* (odds recorded 05:10 GMT on March 11th, 2022 at William Hill).

Northampton are W8 L9 for the season now in Premiership Rugby having seen their form take a turn for the worse.

At the end of last weekend’s action, the Saints were 11 points outside of the top four.

Their last home win happened against Bath in early December.

Looking at their longer form they are W1 L4 in their last five league matches at Franklin’s Gardens.

Our betting prediction:
Saints 1-7 winning margin

Northampton did produce a victory in last season’s corresponding fixture.

It was a 30-25 win over Wasps that they took, snapping back to back home defeats against their opponents (all tournaments).

Northampton Saints are W2 L2 in their last four home fixtures in the Premiership against Wasps.

Things are slightly better in the home and away form in the head to head for the Saints, as Northampton are W3 L2 in their last five.

Earlier this season on their visit to Coventry, the Saints lost by six points against Wasps.


Wasps Preview – Wasps may have a chance at Franklin’s Gardens

Wasps are level on points in the Premiership standings with Northampton Saints.

They too have just hit a little bit of a slump having lost the last twice.

Those were defeats against Harlequins and Wasps, both of them by at least a five-point margin.

In the match outright for Sunday’s Premiership Rugby betting, Wasps are 5/6 favourites* (odds recorded 05:10 GMT on March 11th, 2022 at William Hill).

Before this dip in form, Wasps had started to come good.

There had been four straight league wins for them, including successes over Leicester, Saracens and Exeter.

So that was a very strong sequence of forms.

Can they snap this current slump and take advantage on Sunday against the struggling Saints?

The tricky thing here is that while Wasps look to be the better side at the moment, their away form is very poor.

Wasps have lost six of their last seven matches in all tournaments.

In their last five Premiership rugby away matches, Wasps have posted a W1 L4 record.

The lone success in that sequence was a big upset win away at Exeter, a victory earned by a single point margin.

In each of their last seven away matches, they have conceded at least 26 points.

This looks like it is going to be a really evenly balanced contest.


Northampton Saints vs Wasps Betting Advice

This really could swing either way and there is little to choose between the two of them.

But the slight preference just has to be for the saints on home turf.

The win for Northampton Saints in the match outright is at 5/6* (odds recorded 05:10 GMT on March 11th, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Northampton Saints vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Northampton Saints have lost their last four league matches
  • Northampton Saints are W3 L2 in their last five against Wasps
  • Wasps have lost four of their last five away matches in Premiership Rugby


While the Saints are on a four-match losing streak those have all been very tough fixtures for them.

They almost got a win away to Gloucester last weekend.

Wasps misfired badly against Bristol Bears in their last match and have very little away form to show for recent efforts.

A Northampton 1-7 winning margin gets the nod at 11/4* (odds recorded 05:10 GMT on March 11th, 2022 at William Hill).
