Sunday’s Premiership Rugby fixture could be a cracker as it is an important duel in the race for a top-four finish.

Northampton will want to make the most of home advantage as four points would put them level on points with Exeter.

After a poor run of form, the Chiefs have responded with back to back league wins, so can they keep their form going?

Northampton Preview – Saints look for a home boost

The Saints have lost their last four matches on home turf in all competitions.

There have been back to back home losses in the Premiership for them against Saracens and Sale Sharks.

Northampton lost by a 1-point margin in their last home Premiership Rugby match.

In the match outright, Northampton are 4/6 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

Overall this season, Northampton Saints are W8 L7.

They finished the last round of action 6 points outside the top four and four points behind 5th-placed Exeter.

The Saints do have a game in hand over most of the teams currently above them.

The last time that the Saints lost three straight league matches was in December 2020.

But given that they have only won once at home in any competition since October, they are going to be under pressure.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-5 winning margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill)


Northampton Saints will be looking to complete the season double over Exeter on the weekend.

They claimed a 26-24 win at Sandy Park against the Chiefs earlier this season.

The last time that the Saints won both league meetings with Exeter in a season was in 2013/14.

Northampton have claimed only three wins in their last 11 against Exeter in the Premiership (L8).

Each of the three wins in that sequence Northampton took by a margin of no greater than three points.

A Northampton -2 handicap is at 10/11 for Sunday’s match* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs back on the up?

The Exeter Chiefs have won back to back league fixtures which has been a welcome return to form for them.

Those victories were against Gloucester and Newcastle Falcons.

Exeter had slumped to a three-match losing streak in the Premiership before that.

None of those three defeats were by a wide margin, however,

They were all within four points and that suggests that the margins are going to be narrow at Franklin’s Gardens on Sunday.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for Exeter is at 6/5* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

Out on their league travels this season, the Devon side have lost three times, twice since the opening weekend.

Exeter have claimed one win in their last four trips to Northampton.

Exeter Chiefs have plenty of work on their hands to try and make a top-four finish this season.

In their last away match they beat Newcastle by a single point margin.

That was a much-needed win with the Chiefs having lost their two away games before that.

Each of Exeter’s last seven away matches in the league were settled by a margin of no more than 10 points.

The Exeter +2 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

It’s not often that you see the Chiefs in that position in the market.

Should Exeter lose on the weekend, it would be their 8th defeat of the campaign, the most they have suffered in a single campaign since the 2014/15 season.


Northampton vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

This looks like a toss-up really, but the concern for the home side is that they really don’t have form at Franklin’s Gardens.

So can Northampton do enough to beat out a far-from-convincing Exeter team?

Given the state of play, it is the away win that may just take preference at 6/5 for Exeter* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Northampton vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Northampton have won 3 of their last 11 against the Chiefs

So the Chiefs have shown signs of a fight and can sneak the win. The Exeter 1-5 winning margin is at 5/1* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill)
