The first of the Premiership Rugby semi-finals sees a massive rivalry clash between Saracens and reigning champions Harlequins.

It’s Saracens with home advantage at the StoneX, and how crucial will that prove to be?

Saracens Preview – Can Saracens defend home turf?

Saracens closed out last weekend’s regular-season of Premiership Rugby with a heavy loss at Gloucester.

But they naturally rested a stack of their star power with this match in mind.

It cost them an eight-match winning streak, but they have bigger fish to fry.

Saracens are into their twelfth semi-final match in the Premiership Rugby.

From those 11 previous visits, Saracens have prevailed on seven occasions.

However, narrowing things down a little bit, they have won five of their last six Premiership Rugby semi-finals.

Ib the match outright for rugby betting, Saracens are 1/3 odds-on for the win* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet).

Throughout this entire Premiership season, Saracens have suffered one home loss only.

That was against Gloucester in Round 13 by a single point.

The importance of them locking down the home advantage with a second-place finish in the table behind Leicester Tigers really could be key.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-5 winning margin

* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet)


Saracens have some head-to-head from going against Harlequins as well, losing just one of their last seven against Quins.

The one loss in that sequence was away at the Stoop in January 2020.

Saracens and Harlequins have met before in the semi-finals of the Premiership Rugby playoffs.

That was in 2014, with Sarries taking a 31-17 win at the StoneX.

A Saracens -7 handicap for rugby betting is at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet).

Eight previous times they have played host to Quins (all tournaments) and have suffered one loss only which was in the 2017 Welsh Anglo Cup.

The aces seems to be up their sleeve.


Harlequins Preview – Tough test for the champions

In last season’s Premiership Rugby semi-finals, Harlequins were underdogs away at Bristol.

But in an absolute rollercoaster of a high-scoring fixture, Quins came through 43-36 in extra time.

Saturday’s fixture looks extremely tough for them.

Quins have lost two of their last three matches in Premiership Rugby.

Their form on the road has not been terrific either.

Harlequins have won once on the road since March in all tournaments, so they are understandably in the position of underdogs.

In the match outright, Harlequins to win is at 12/5* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet).

But on a positive note for them, they have won their last two Premiership playoff matches.

None of the four previous semi-finals wins that Quins have ever earned were by more than a 7-point margin.

Harlequins know how to keep the scoreboard ticking over even when they are on the losing end of things.

In their last two league defeats, they scored 30+ points in each of the fixtures.

There are two extremely good sides at scrummaging clashing here. It should be good.

On this season’s league visit to Saracens back in February, Quins came up short by nine points.

Last weekend for their final regular-season fixture, a high-scoring loss at Exeter, Quins didn’t rest players as Saracens did.

As they showed last season they can never be counted out, however.


Saracens vs Harlequins Betting Advice

Saracens naturally take preference in this one with home advantage at the StoneX having been earned.

That Saracens -7 handicap line for us is just out of range, so we are swinging for the Quins +7 at Evens* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet).

They are a scoring threat and in some recent big matches, they were close in defeat.

Harlequins did win seven of their final nine league matches of the regular campaign.


Key Facts – Saracens vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Saracens have lost one Premiership home match all season
  • Saracens have won six of their last seven Premiership fixtures against Quins
  • Harlequins have lost their last matches away at Saracens
  • Quins are W1 L6 in their last seven against Sarries in the Premiership
  • Saracens won the one previous semi-final match with Quins in 2014


The head-to-head is firmly in favour of Sarries ahead of this Premiership Rugby semi-final and we see them winning this.

They are just a model of efficiency on home turf, losing one Premier League match there all season.

Saracens will likely be happy to take this challenge up front and cut down the attacking threat of Quins.

A Saracens 1-5 winning margin piques interest at 7/2 as a rugby tip* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at Unibet).
