Sale Sharks, despite boasting a very strong squad, just haven’t got any momentum going in this season of Premiership Rugby.

But there have been signs from their most recent efforts that they could be starting to piece something together.

Can they continue their red-hot form at AJ Bell as they entertaining current Premiership leaders Leicester who have won all but one match this season?

Sale Sharks Preview – Can Sale take their chance?

Sale Sharks have had their league struggles this season and have won only once since early November.

That one victory was from a good home performance against Wasps on January 1st.

While their overall season has been a bit hit-and-miss, the form on paper reads well for them at the AJ Bell.

Sale Sharks have won their last five matches there in all competitions.

They have taken a win in nine of their last ten home fixtures, a league defeat against Exeter in October last year being the only blip.

So that has been powerful stuff from them.

In the match outright for Sunday’s contest against league leaders Leicester, Sale Sharks are 8/15 for the victory* (odds recorded 21:55 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at William Hill).

This could be a good chance for them to take down the Leicester Tigers, who are missing some of their key players because of International camps.

Our betting prediction:
Sale 1-5 winning margin

Can Sale Sharks do enough to turn the tables on Leicester, who they have lost two twice already?

They went down at Welford Road in October’s league meeting to them and were beaten at the venue again in the Premiership Cup a month later.

The Sharks do have home form against Leicester Tigers.

It’s a three-match winning streak that Sale are on at the AJ Bell against the Tigers, winning five of their last six Premiership home matches against them (L1).


Leicester Tigers Preview – Tricky challenge for the Tigers

Leicester Tigers have had a brilliant season with just one defeat in all competitions this season.

They have dominated the domestic scene, but this is no easy game for them on Sunday.

Leicester are 6/4 underdogs for the fixture* (odds recorded 21:55 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at William Hill).

First up, six of their squad are currently on duty with England including Georg Ford, Ellis Genge and Ben Youngs.

So this could be a tough six weeks or so for them while the Six Nations are on.

The one loss that Leicester have suffered this season did happen on their travels.

That was at Wasp in their most recent Premiership rugby away fixture.

It was a 16-13 surprise upset that Steve Borthwick’s men suffered in that one.

But that has merely been a little blip on their overall positive away form since the end of last season.

Leicester Tigers are W10 L1 in their last eleven road fixtures in all competitions.

That’s a phenomenal record. But can they avoid back to back losses on the road in the league?

A Leicester +4 handicap line is set at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:55 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at William Hill).

One very interesting thing is that the Leicester have struggled to score points on their last three visits to the AJ Bell.

In those three matches, they concluded with 5, 3 and then most recently 10 points only on the scoreboard.

With the Tigers now having to reach into their squad, what do they have up their sleeve?


Sale Sharks vs Leicester Tigers Betting Advice

Sale Sharks like to keep the ball in hand and go through the phases, sometimes overcomplicating it a little.

They have a talented squad and with some big home form behind them, they are worth considering taking the win.

Their last four home successes over the Tigers have each been by a margin of at least four points.

A Sale Sharks -4 handicap is at 10/11 for Sunday* (odds recorded 21:55 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Sale Sharks vs Leicester Tigers Betting Tip

  • Sale Sharks have won 13 of their last 14 first team fixtures at the AJ Bell
  • Sale Sharks have won five of their last six home matches against Leicester Tigers
  • Leicester Tigers have won all but one fixture across all tournaments this season (L1)


Sale Sharks are W13 L1 in their last fourteen home matches in all tournaments and that just can’t be ignored.

The visiting Leicester does have big away form, but they are not at full strength.

So it’s the narrow Sale 1-5 winning margin option that rolls in as our next rugby betting tip at 9/2* (odds recorded 21:55 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at William Hill).
