Odds: 11/8 odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October

A win for Bath on Sunday will guarantee that they have a top four finish for themselves and head to the Premiership semi finals.

A loss at Saracens however, and then they would be sweating on other results going their way, with Sale and Bristol both able to overtake them on the final day.

Saracens lost a midweek game against Worcester but may be highly charged for this, their final game before relegation.

Saracens Preview – Can Saracens stop Bath?

From the start of the season Saracens knew that they were going to be relegated because of a points deduction.

So they have largely put their stock this season into defending their Heineken Cup crown.

But last weekend that bubble was burst as they suffered a semi final loss against Racing 92, which means that they will end the season with nothing.

This will be their final game of the campaign, something that they are not used to, as they are generally a banker for a top four finish.

They are, after all, still the reigning Premiership champions for a little while longer.

Following their European Champions Cup semi final loss against Racing, Saracens stepped back into league action in midweek.

They travelled to Worcester, didn’t field their strongest fifteen and were soundly beaten 40-27 by a team which has struggled all season.

Our betting prediction:
Bath 1-10 Winning Margin

Bet at Power Paddy

(odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October)


Will they go full tilt at this final game to try and sign off on a positive? Saracens have a W13 L8 record for the Premiership season.

Only table topper Exeter has produced a better record than that.

But there hasn’t been the usual level of consistency from them and Saracen have lost three of their last five games in all competitions.

Two of those were league fixtures against Sale and the midweek one against Worcester. Saracens are though 8/13 odds-on favourites for this* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

You have to think that they won’t take this as lightly as they did for their trip to to Worcester in midweek, which came quickly after their big European effort.


Bath Preview – Can Bath make it five wins on the spin?

It is a four match winning streak in the Premiership that Bath have put together.

That has been some huge form from them at just the right time to launch this bid for a semi final place. A win on Sunday guarantees it.

They would have been hoping for an easier game to sign off with.

However, in their last away game, Bath went to Sale, who were just one point behind them in the race for a top four finish.

Bath won that away game convincingly with a 37-22 scoreline and therefore they are value here at 11/8 in the match outright* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

Looking back at the extended form of Bath, they have suffered just one reversal in the last eight rounds of action.

Bath also have won all four of their away games since the season was restated, a highly impressive record.

One more win and they would equal their club record of most consecutive road wins in the top flight, set between november 2003 and March 2004.

What is the head to head telling us for Premiership rugby betting on Saracens vs Bath?

Bath have only managed to claim the one win in their last four against Sarries now. The two in their last five against them have both been at the Rec.

So this is not an easy game for Bath, with so much at stake, but they are scoring consistently well and may be able to sneak over the line at the Allianz.


Saracens vs Bath Betting Advice

What a cracker of a game. Will Saracens be determined to put on a show in their final game in the top flight for a couple of seasons?

Most probably. But they have actually only won one of their last four Premiership games, which was against a weakened Exeter in mid-September.

They have had a bigger focus elsewhere to be fair, but we are going to oppose them still in this fixture.
