It has been back to back league defeats for Sale in Premiership rugby and they will be looking to halt their slide on Friday night.

But they host the in-form Harlequins in Salford and this is no easy fixture for them to try and get back on track.

In what is their Premiership rugby title defence, Quins have made a perfect start and kick-off as the favourites.

Sale Sharks Preview – Sharks look to end winless streak

It has been three Premiership matches without a win for Sale Sharks in their current league form.

Last weekend they suffered a narrow loss away at Gloucester, which in turn followed a defeat in their most recent home game.

In their last effort in Salford, Sale were beaten 15-25 by the visiting Exeter.

But that did snap an eight-match winning streak that they had been on at the venue.

Sale Sharks are the 11/8 underdogs in rugby betting for this Friday action* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

They did open the season with a home success, a narrow one-point margin win over Bath.

But a draw against London Irish and a loss at Gloucester has seen the Sharks struggle against two of the teams who struggled badly in the previous campaign.

If we extend their form back to last season as well, Sale have won only one of their last six league games.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 1-10 Winning Margin

Bet at Marathonbet

* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021)


A positive in the statistics for Sale in this one is that each of the last five meetings between these two clubs have gone the way of the home team.

Sale are unbeaten at home against Quins since 2015.

They have won their last six on home turf against Quins.

The last two home successes that Sale have taken over Harlequins have been by a margin of at least 30 points.

They are bringing Tom Curry and Manu Tuilagi back into the starting line up for this one.

Sale clearly need to turn around their current fortunes.

They haven’t gone longer than three league matches without a win since January 2017 when they lost six on the bounce.


Harlequins Preview – Can Quins keep up their winning form?

It has been impressive stuff from Harlequins as they make their steps towards trying to defend their league title.

It has been three wins from three from them this season.

Already they have scored more tries than any other team, despite only having played three matches.

The only away game this season for Harlequins was in Round 1.

That was a visit to Newcastle Falcons, Quins taking a 26-20 win at Kingston Park.

Harlequins are a quote of 4/6 odds-on in the match outright for rugby betting on Friday* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

After a home win against Worcester in their second match, Harlequins made a huge statement in their most recent match.

They produced a stunning 54-24 win at the Stoop against last season’s table-toppers Bristol.

That’s a six-match winning streak that Harlequins are on in Premiership Rugby.

The last time they lost a match was against Sale on June 4th.

Away from home, they have banked back to back to wins which is, incidentally, their best road form in the last year.

Harlequins last won their first four matches of a new season at the start of the 2012/13 season.

They were the reigning champions on that occasion as well. Is history about to repeat itself?

Quins are now averaging 5.7 tries per game already this season. That is easily a league-best.

They have touched down for at least four tries in each of their matches.

Will that scoring form be enough to lift them to a victory in Salford?

This isn’t expected to be a particularly easy game, and a Harlequins -2 handicap is at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).


Sale Sharks vs Harlequins Betting Advice

Sale have the form in the head to head, winning their last six on the spin at home against Quins.

It has been the home side on the day which has dominated recent meetings.

But still, the away win for Harlequins looks the way to go at a quote of 4/6* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).


Key Facts – Sale Sharks vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Sale Sharks have won their last six at home against Quins
  • Sale Sharks are winless in their last three Premiership matches (D1 L2)
  • Harlequins have won their last six fixtures in the competition


Sale’s recent results have been unconvincing, with a draw at London Irish and a defeat at Gloucester.

They only just narrowly got past Bath in their one win for this campaign. They may not have the scoring power to match Quins.

A Harlequins 1-10 winning margin fits nicely for rugby betting at 23/10* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).
