Saracens had an upset last weekend as they suffered a loss away at Wasps in league action.

That has left Sarries on back to back league defeats for the campaign.

They are still in good shape for a top-four finish and will be looking to drive home an advantage against bottom-side Bath on Saturday.

Saracens Preview – Sarries to snap back to winning ways

A loss at Wasps last weekend in Premiership action has left Saracens on back to back defeats.

The other was against Gloucester in mid-January.

Both of those losses were by no more than a 6-point margin.

So it’s certainly not going to be panic stations at the StoneX.

Saracens are big home favourites for Saturday’s home Premiership Rugby fixture against Bath.

There is a quote of 1/25 in the match outright for the Saracens win* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill)

It certainly is not a big stretch to get to that outcome.

The last time that Saracens lost three straight matches in the competition was in December 2017.

They are generally a beast of a home team.

The last time that Saracens lost two straight home Premiership fixtures was in the 2005/06 season when they were playing at Vicarage Road.

So it’s not happened at the StoneX and not likely to do so on Saturday.

Home and away combined, Saracens have only lost one of their last six against Bath.

That was the Rec in 2019.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 21-30 Winning Margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill)


Earlier this season Saracens completely routed Bath when they paid a visit to the Rec.

In October, Saracens ran out massive 71-17 winners against the West Country club.

That was some result. But it is the second time in the last five meetings that Saracens have scored at least 50 points in a match against Bath.

A Saracens -18 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 for rugby betting on the weekend* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).

Considering that Saracens are the top-scoring team in the division, that’s not an unreasonable proposition really.


Bath Preview – Long afternoon for Bath?

Bath are bottom of the Premiership Rugby table with a W2 L11 record this season.

They may well be facing a very long afternoon at the StoneX on Saturday.

The Newcastle Falcons are the only team to have scored fewer points than Bath this season.

Only Worcester Warriors have delivered a worse defensive record than that of Bath.

It is a pretty obvious call therefore for Bath going into this as 12/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill)

Very interesting, however, is that Bath have won their last two league matches.

After going without one in their first eleven games of the campaign, things have fallen their way recently.

Those victories though were at the Rec against Worcester and then impressively, the reigning champions Harlequins.

The last time that Bath won a league away game was in March 2021.

That happened at Newcastle.

Bath have shipped at least 41 points in three of their last four league visits to Saracens.

Straight out of the gate the Saracens -18 handicap looks the way to go at 10/11* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).
