This is a heavyweight clash in the Premiership to look forward to on Sunday afternoon. Reigning champions Saracens get their chance to at least land a blow on Exeter.

Saracens are getting relegated at the end of the season because of their points-deduction, while Exeter are red-hot favourites for this season’s Premiership title.

Regardless of the standings between the two in the table, this is one to look forward to as there is no love lost between them.

Saracens Preview – Can Saracens steady the ship to beat Exeter?

It has actually been back to back losses in the Premiership for Saracens, going down against Wasps and Sale.

Those are both top-four finish contenders, so are Sarries going to have an even tougher battle on their hands here against the runaway league leaders Exeter.

Maybe not.

Saracens are W12 L07 for the season, which is a record bettered only by Exeter and only two teams have scored more points than they have done.

On home turf at the Allianz and probably keen to get one over on their rivals, Saracens are the 8/15 odds-on favourites here* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

Saracens have given up at least 20 points in four of their last five league games, so there are cracks in their defensive line.

Currently, Sarries have the third-best defensive record in the Premiership this season, and while they have been off the boil a little bit in their last two games, they are not to be written off here.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-12 Winning Margin

In fact, we would be all over the win for Saracens here, because Exeter are pretty much over the line in having secured the top spot.

So the visitors may well be resting some players ahead of bigger things to come this season, like the playoffs.

Saracens have won three of their last five meetings with Exeter in the Premiership and a Saracens -7 handicap is at 10/11* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September)


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs can relax on their visit to the Allianz

Exeter holds a fourteen point lead at the top of the Premiership over second-placed Sale, with just three games to play.

So despite not mathematically set in stone, they are going to finish the season top of the pile, as fully expected.

So they don’t even need to turn and actually do anything in this game at all.

The bookmakers recognise that and it is why the Chiefs are 8/5 underdogs* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

Earlier this season when the two giants met, it was Exeter who collected a 14-7 win over Sarries at Sandy Park.

Only twice before have they completed a season-double over Saracens in the Premiership.

It has been only the one win in their last four visits to the Allianz as well, so they really don’t make any kind of a sound option in this one.

Exeter Chiefs have of course, been in form. Tremendous form at that as they have won their last seven league games in a row.

It has been just the two away defeats that they have suffered in this campaign, those losses happening against Harlequins and Bath.

The last couple of away wins that Exeter have taken have been by a narrow margin, three-point margin success at Bristol and Northampton.


Saracens vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

While this is a heavyweight clash, there really is nothing important happening in the game.

Exeter are topping the table and Saracens are getting relegated, so the game has come a little too late in the season to be of much interest.

So we just have to go with the home win for Saracens in this one because of Exeter, more likely than not in such a busy period, taking it easy.


Key Facts – Saracens vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Saracens have lost their last two league fixtures
  • Saracens are W3 L2 in their last five league matches against Exeter
  • Exeter Chiefs have won their last seven league games


A Saracens 1-12 winning margin looks fantastic 2/1 odds for Sunday’s match* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

The last time that Saracens lost back to back home games in the competition was in February 2006 when they were playing at Vicarage Road.

So it’s never happened at the Allianz and we don’t expect it to do so here.
