This should be a good scrap between Saracens and Wasps on Saturday. The relegation fate of reigning champions Saracens has been set.

But Wasps ended the last round of action clinging on to fourth place in the table. So they are the ones desperate for the points.

Can they put down a huge marker and collect a valuable four-points out on their travels as they try and push towards the post-season?

Saracens Preview – Can Sarries extend their home form in the Premiership?

It has been just the one loss for Saracens in their last six Premiership fixtures.

But if you focus solely on their home form, then they are on a ten-match winning streak at Allianz Park in all competitions.

So that’s an impressive statistic right off the bat and Sarries are the long odds-on favourites here to the tune of 1/25* (odds taken 23:19 GMT Friday 4th September).

Saracens have won their last three games of top-flight action, two of those happening on home turf.

Last weekend they went out on the road to The Stoop where they collected a comfortable 40-12 win over the struggling London Irish.

It is at least 36points that Saracens have produced in each of their last three league games.

Only current league leaders Exeter have scored more points than Sarries in the 2019/20 campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Sarries 11-20 Winning Margin

When Saracens visited Wasps earlier this season they were on the wrong end of a 60-10 scoreline.

That snapped a four-match winning streak that Saracens had been on against Wasps.

Interestingly, however, Saracens have not lost both games in a single season to Wasps since the 2006/07 season.

Saracens have only ever dropped one home game against Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership, which happened in 2016.

Even though they are catching Wasps in a good bit of form, the bookmakers have a Saracens -21 handicap up at 5/6* (odds taken 23:19 GMT Friday 4th September).


Wasps Preview – Can Wasps get crucial points in a tough road game?

Wasps are pushing hard for a top-four finish and have collected a win in three of their four games since the restart.

Their only blip in that sequence happened in a big clash with Sale at home, but they responded in fine fashion last weekend.

The pressure was on Wasps as they went to the Rec to face Bath and the visitors collected a superb 27-23 win.

So that means Wasps have only lost one of their last seven Premiership fixtures and are no pushover at the moment.

They are also on a three-match winning streak out on the road in league action.

Wasps are the second-highest scoring team in the league at the moment, but will they have enough to grind out a rare win at Allianz Park?

Again, going back to the handicap market to see a +21 on Wasps for even money, that has some appeal* (odds taken 23:19 GMT Friday 4th September).

While their victory over Saracens earlier this season is their only one in their last five meetings against Sarries, we don’t see them getting crushed heavily.

In each of their last four losses against Saracens, the +21 handicap line for Wasps wouldn’t have won had it been supported.

That’s how much, in general, they have been bossed by Sarries, but Wasps are on their game right now and can get within that line.

Across the course of the season, Wasps have only scored four-fewer tries than what Saracens have put on the board.


Saracens vs Wasps Betting Advice

This is a very interesting game, especially with Wasps showing up at Allianz Park in big need of some points from the game.

But the head to head here speaks for itself and Saracens are such a remarkably tough side to beat on home soil.

So we expect the home win to come, but we will back Wasps to keep to within a respectable margin with that +21 handicap option* (odds taken 23:19 GMT Friday 4th September).


Key Facts – Saracens vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Saracens have won their last ten home games in all competitions
  • Saracens conceded 60 points in a loss against Wasps earlier this season
  • Wasps have only taken one win at Allianz Park in Gallagher Premiership Rugby


Another way to size this up for a bit of value is to cut the winning margin down on Saracens a little bit.

We think that the Saracens 11-20 range of a winning margin just looks about right for the contest and that is a 3/1 option* (odds taken 23:19 GMT Friday 4th September).

Either way, this could shape up to be the game of the Premiership weekend.
