The heavyweight clash of the Premiership Rugby weekend comes from the StoneX on Saturday afternoon.

With both well on course to lock down a place in the top four at the end of the season, massive bragging rights are up for grabs.

Saracens Preview – Sarries pose a threat

Saracens sat in second place still after the previous round of Premiership Rugby action.

Sarries had a bye in the last round and so will pick things up for the first time since a loss against London Irish in mid-February.

That was an upset out on the road for Saracens.

The result left them on a W10 D1 L5 record for the season, and they hold a game in hand over the rest of the current top five.

In the match outright for Saturday, Saracens are 2/5 odds-on* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

There has been a wobble in their recent overall form. Saracens have lost three of their last five games.

Two of those losses were on their travels.

Gloucester are the only team to have shown up at the StoneX and have beaten Saracens since September 2020 in the league.

Saracens will be looking to turn the tables on Leicester after losing by a single point against the Tigers earlier this season at Welford Road.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-7 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365)


Saracens do have a good home head to head record against the Leicester Tigers.

They have won seven of their last eight against Leicester and have produced an average of four tries per game in that sequence.

Sarries have averaged 30 points per fixture in their last eight at home against Leicester.

Saracens are the leading scorers in the last 20 minutes of Premiership matches in this campaign.

The home side does have Elliott Daly back from international duty, but Max Malins isn’t involved.


Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers face a tough challenge

The Leicester Tigers will be missing some of their backbone with Ellis Genge, Freddie Steward and Ben Youngs not involved because of the England camp.

George Ford is available and in the starting fifteen for them as captain.

Leicester Tigers are fully back in their stride after losing to Sale at the end of January.

It has been a four-match winning streak that they have produced since.

In three of those four wins, the Tigers scored at least 35 points.

They are the ones to catch this season without question, but this is not an easy assignment for them.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for Leicester is at a quote of 7/4* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

Leicester are on a four-match winning streak in the league, but they have lost two of their last three on the road.

The Leicester Tigers +6 handicap line is at a quote of Even money* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

It’s hard to imagine either of these pulling out a victory by a wide margin.

These are the top two in the country at the moment, and they are the top two points-scorers in this season’s Premiership.

While we have mentioned that Saracens are the top-scoring side in the final 20 minutes of matches, Leicester have conceded fewer points than anyone in the final quarter of matches in the Premiership this season.


Saracens vs Leicester Tigers Betting Advice

This is one to look forward to and the home win for Saracens is going to be the option that is supported.

Even though they don’t have top try-scorer Max Malins available, they should take this chance at home to close the gap on Leicester.

The Saracens -5 handicap at 10/11 is the first selection* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).
