Sale are still eyeing up that top-four finish, finishing the weekend’s round of action in second place.

They dropped to third on Tuesday with Bristol’s win over Northampton but will regain the second-spot with a win in this fixture.

Saracens suffered quite a big home upset on the weekend as Wasps powered their way past them.

Sale Sharks Preview – Can the Sharks take crucial points against Sarries?

Sale battled their way to a 40-31 win out at Leicester on the weekend, getting a stiffer test than expected really in that one.

But that was their third straight win and they are rocking and rolling along at the moment in the Premiership.

They have, notably, beaten Wasps and Bristol in that run, two of the other sides battling along for a top-four finish.

So Sale are right there in top form at the moment and they are the 1/4 favourites in the match outright for this contest* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).

The last time that they won four on the spin in the Premiership was February 2016 and they have another thought scrap on their hands in midweek to match that.

But the Sharks are in good home form as well, dropping just one of their last five on home turf.

Our betting prediction:
Sale 1-12 Winning margin

(odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September)


Their only loss in that run of five games at the AJ Bell Stadium (all tournaments) was when league leaders Exeter paid a visit and beat Sale 32-22.

Earlier this season when the two met, Saracens beat Sale 36-22 and the Sharks have struggled in the head to head against Sarries.

They have managed to win just one of their last seven against them, home and away, but that win happened in their last home game against Saracens, in January last year.

A Sale -11 handicap is at 10/11* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).


Saracens Preview – Can Sarries respond to last weekend’s defeat?

There was a bit of a hammering dished out to Saracens last weekend as Wasps visited the Allianz and took a 28-18 win there.

That snapped a three-match winning streak in the league that Sarries had been on.

But for rugby betting here, it is worth noting perhaps that Saracens have lost their last two games against current top-four sides (Wasps and Bristol) all within their last five fixtures.

So with Sale in that top-four mix then Saracens are the 3/1 match outright underdogs for the game on Wednesday* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).

But then you have to weigh up the fact that Sarries have won two of their last three away games in the Premiership.

Those were victories earned against Northampton and London Irish, but they will face a tougher opponent in this one.

We need to go back to the head to head as Saracens have only suffered the one defeat in their last nine league fixtures with Sale.

But as mentioned above that was that game in Salford in January last year, the last occasion that Saracens went out on the road to Sale.

Only league leaders Exeter have scored more points this season in the Premiership than Saracens have, and they are averaging 26.7 points per game.

We are expecting a high scoring game here and a flutter on over 7.5 Total Tries may be worth a look at 21/20* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).


Sale Sharks vs Saracens Betting Advice

What a cracking match this should be. Sale are obviously the one who need the points out of this fixture.

But they are not going to come easily to them as they have to struggle don’t the head to head against Saracens.

But still, we have to fancy the home win, but we don’t see it being by a big margin, so would play it safe with Sharks 1-12 winning margin at 21/10* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).


Key Facts – Sale Sharks vs Saracens Betting Tip

  • Sale Sharks have won their last three league games
  • Sale Sharks have won one of their last seven against Sarries
  • Saracens have lost their last two games against current top-four teams


Saracens are still a big scoring threat on the day, but they didn’t quite know how to handle the attacking game of Wasps last weekend.

That was a tough fixture for them and it could have softened them up just a little bit ahead of this trip to the AJ Bell.

It’s a home win for us in Sale v Saracens betting.
