Wasps have gathered a little momentum in the Premiership Rugby and it’s have been some impressive results.

Wasps Preview – Wasps are on the up

Out of nowhere in a season that has been one of the struggles, suddenly Wasps are bang in form.

It’s been a three-match winning streak that they have produced in the league, winning four of their last five.

But back to that three-match winning streak. They were all achieved with underdog odds by Wasps.

They came against Leicester Tigers, Saracens and Exeter.

The latest of those was a gripping 27-26 success away at Sandy Park against the Exeter Chiefs.

In the match outright for Saturday’s Premiership Rugby betting, Wasps are 1/33 odds-on for the win* (odds recorded 21:52 GMT on February 9th 2022 at Betfred).

Given the turn that their season has taken, another victory for Wasps in Coventry looks to be the most plausible outcome.

They are also on a five-match winning streak against Bath in the Premiership.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 21-30 winning margin

* (odds recorded 21:52 GMT on February 9th 2022 at Betfred)


The last time that Wasps won four straight league matches was in 2020.

But they have won four in a row in Coventry now across all competitions, so it’s nothing but positives for them at the moment.

SO, home and away Wasps they have won their last five against Bath, but all with a margin of no more than 10 points.

For this one, the line is wider.

A Wasps -17 handicap rolls in at 10/11 rugby betting odds* (odds recorded 21:52 GMT on February 9th 2022 at Betfred).

That’s understandable at the moment.


Bath Preview – Bath with unfavourable trip

Is there anything for Bath on this trip to Coventry on Saturday in Premiership Rugby action?

They looked as if they were starting to get themselves to a better place in what has been a miserable season.

Bath lost their first dozen league games of the new campaign.

But then they struck back to back wins against Worcester Warriors and then, far more surprisingly, against reigning champions Harlequins.

Bath could not make it three in a row, however.

They were beaten 40-3 at Saracens last weekend and they missed a whopping tally of 49 tackles in that match.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, Bath are big 10/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 21:52 GMT on February 9th 2022 at Betfred).

The last time that they won away from the Rec in the Premiership was in March last year at Newcastle.
