This is the start of the new Premiership season for Wasps as they sat out last weekend’s first round of action.

That’s because there are 13 teams in the top flight this season. They have a tricky opener to come.

They face Bristol Bears who will be looking to snap back from an opening defeat suffered against the newly promoted Saracens.

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps defend home territory?

Wasps had a bye in Round 1 of Premiership rugby last weekend, so this is the big kick-off for the West Midlanders.

They will be hoping for a positive start of course.

More so because they have lost two of their last three games in Coventry and they are underdogs for Saturday.

Wasps are 11/8 in the match outright for Rugby Betting* (odds recorded 18:53 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

At the end of last season, Wasps won three and lost three in their last six fixtures.

Back in March this year, Wasps lost 20-37 away at Bristol last season.

But that really bucked the trend of positive results by Wasps against the Bears.

Before that loss, Wasps has won 16 of their previous 19 games against Bristol in the competition

Wasps hosted Bristol in their opening game of last season and claimed a win.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps to win

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 18:53 GMT on September 23rd, 2021)


The home win that Wasps took against Bristol Bears in Coventry last season, was by a three-point margin.

A Wasps +3 handicap is right there on the 10/11 line for rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:53 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

Lack of home form for Wasps did become a problem for them.

After winning nine of their previous 11 home Premiership matches, Wasps have slumped to winning just two of their last eight such fixtures.

In four of their last five league campaigns, however, Wasps have won their opening home game of a campaign.


Bristol Bears Preview – Can the Bears respond?

Bristol Bears didn’t get the start that they would have wanted last weekend as they faced Saracens.

The Bears were picked off in that game, losing 9-26 at Ashton Gate.

That leaves Bristol with back to back losses in Premiership action and three defeats in their last four.

So they need to find a way to get back on track.

For Saturday’s Premiership rugby betting, the win for Bristol Bears is at a quote of 8/13* (odds recorded 18:53 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

It was a top of the table finish for Bristol last season, but they lost in their Premiership play-off semi against Harlequins.

The really interesting thing about all of this is that Bristol have good away form.

They have suffered only one defeat in their last ten road games. That was in a derby with rivals Bath in Round 20 last season.

During the calendar year of 2021, the reading is impressive for Bristol.

They have won more away games (W7 D1 L1) than any other Premierships team.

Can Bristol Bears put last weekend behind them? They were the only team last weekend not to score a try.

They also missed a whopping 76 tackles in their match against the newly promoted Saracens.

Before their victory over Wasps at Ashton Gate in March, Bristol had been on an even match losing streak against Wasps.

It’s been just one previous victory for them at the Coventry Building Society Arena (November 2018).

Bristol are odds-on favourites, but this result does not look to be cut and dry.
