Saracens are well on course for a top-four finish, comfortably sitting inside the top three of the Premiership Rugby table.

This looks like being a winnable home match for them, which is being played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium instead of the StoneX on Saturday as they host the Bristol Bears.

The Bears lost more momentum last time out in what has been a difficult season, losing a derby against rivals Bath.

Saracens Preview – Sarries to bank the home win

Saracens have won four of their last five Premiership Rugby matches and another success could be heading their way on Saturday.

It is a third straight victory that they are looking for.

In their last home fixture, Saracens got the better of league leaders Leicester Tigers in a big battle at the StoneX.

Saracens are huge 1/16 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred).

They are currently sitting in second place, twelve points behind Leicester with a game in hand.

Saracens have a big home form going against Bristol Bears.

They have won their last six in a row against the Bears on home turf and in four of those six tallied at least 26 points.

Home and away, Saracens are W2 L2 in their last four against Bristol.

But with the Bears struggling on the road this season, a home win has to be the way to swing this.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 8-14 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred)


Saracens are bolstered by the return of some of their international stars like Maro Itoje and Nick Isiekwe.

In each of their last three Premiership Rugby matches, Saracens have scored at least 30 points.

But they have conceded at least 20 in each of those as well.

Interestingly Saracens have scored only one try in their last two matches against the Bears in the league.

However with them back at full strength, especially in the back row, they could put in a more controlled performance

A Saracens -18 handicap is where the line is, at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred)


Bristol Bears Preview – Bears could have it tough

There has been only one win for the Bristol Bears in their last five Premiership matches.

That was a home win against Wasps back at the end of February.

Bristol have secured only one road win this season in the top flight, a Round 7 success at London Irish.

So there is little support to throw their way.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting the win for Bristol is at 10/1* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred).

It’s been four straight away defeats for them and only in one of those did they post more than 14 points on the scoreboard.

However, it hasn’t been all doom and gloom in defence of rhythm.

Each of their last three road defeats have been by a margin of no more than six points.

A Bristol Bears -13 handicap therefore at a quote of 15/8 isn’t a bad option* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred).

In two of their last three away matches against Saracens, Bristol have been leading at the halftime break.

But they did still slip to defeat in each of those.

The Bears make a total of eight changes from their last Premiership Rugby match, including the return of Harry Randall from England duty.

Earlier this season Bristol were hammered 9-26 on home turf by Saracens.

It looks unlikely that they will deliver an away win against them on the weekend.


Saracens vs Bristol Bears Betting Advice

A reasonably comfortable home win for Saracens looks to be the best way to go for Premiership Rugby betting here.

However, they have been leaking points lately and therefore the big wide handicap line is going to be dialled in.

The Bristol Bears +13 handicap for 15/8 is going to be the pick* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred).


Key Facts – Saracens vs Bristol Bears Betting Tip

  • Saracens have won 4 of their last 5 Premiership matches
  • Saracens are on a six match winning streak at home against Bristol
  • Bristol Bears have won one league away match all season


That is because while they have been losing road games, Bristol hasn’t been beaten heavily in three of their last four.

We don’t see the away team going enough on the day to get the win.

So the other pick is the Saracens to win by 8-14 points margin at 4/1* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Betfred).
