Northampton Saints Preview – Saints to get back on track

Northampton came flying out of the gates this season in the Premiership winning their first three matches.

They missed out on their fourth as they were beaten by Wasps.

Last weekend they had a bye so have had plenty of time to recover and pick up the pieces from that defeat.

The win for Northampton in Premiership Rugby betting is at a quote of 1/10* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

It has been three wins for them in their last four at Franklin’s Gardens.

Northampton are facing a struggling team here, so it’s easy enough to understand the odds-on quote.

The Saints have a big head to head home form against the Warriors.

There have been eleven straight home wins for Northampton over Worcester in the Premiership.

That runs all the way to back a loss against them in January 2007,

This is their best winning streak at home against any opponent.

Our betting prediction:
Saints -18.5 handicap

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 05:49 GMT on April 23rd, 2021)


The Saints have won back to back home matches now but the last time that they won three in a row was in December 2019.

They have been strong starters to matches this season in the top flight.

In the first quarter of matches they have tallied 41 points and five of their eleven tries this season have been in the first 20 minutes of fixtures.

It may be worth a play at 1st Half Highest Scoring Half rugby betting at 11/10* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

With such a strong overall Premiership record against the Warriors (a 75% success rate), this could be routine for the Saints on the weekend.


Worcester Warriors Preview – Warriors to struggle again?

The season started on a positive note for the Worcester Warriors as they collected a victory over London Irish.

But it has been all downhill since for them as they have slumped to a four-match losing streak.

The last time that they earned a league away win was at London Irish last year.

The last two Premiership wins that they have earned have been on the road.

It’s been a long, long time since beating Northampton in January 2007 and Worcester are a massive underdog here.

Worcester are 6/1 in the Premiership rugby outright market* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

Can they possibly find any way to avoid falling to their eighth straight league defeat against the Saints?

Away from home this season they have fallen at Harlequins by a six-point margin and at Exeter by a 37-point margin.

After getting hammered by Leicester last weekend, Worcester have scored just eight points in total in their last two league games.

Worcester Warriors then with that lack of scoring, could mean a bigger opportunity in the handicap market.

A Northampton -18.5 handicap is at a quote of 11/10* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

The last time that Worcester went three matches in a row scoring fewer than 10 points in each was in 2014.

Totalling things up, Worcester have won only one of their last 23 Premiership fixtures home and away.

The bigger line on a Northampton -18.5 handicap is in play at 6/5* (odds recorded 15:49 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

The Saints have good overall form at home in the Premiership and should have too much for the visitors.
