Odds: 10/11 odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October

Wasps are likely to get over the line in securing a top four finish and therefore a place in the Premiership semi finals this season.

A win will guarantee that they achieve that. But a slip up at home against Exeter would leave them waiting on other results to go their way.

Exeter took things easy in the last round of league action, but will they be back at full strength looking to gain some momentum ahead of the semi finals?

Wasps Preview – Wasps powering to the ifnish line

It has been such a good campaign from Wasps since the season was restarted and have lost just one of their last eleven.

They collected a 32-22 away win at Harlequins in midweek to make it five wins on the bounce for their current form.

So they are red hot right now and they are also long odds-on favourites at 1/16 to pick up the match win on Sunday* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

A win will guarantee that they join Exeter in the Premiership semi finals and it would also mean that they would definitely avoid Exeter in the semi’s.

In their last six fixtures at the Ricoh Arena, Wasps have lost only once, so they have big home form going as well.

Even though Wasps lost at Sandy Park earlier this season, they haven’t lost both games in a season against them since the 2015/16 campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 11-20 Winning Margin

(odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October)


A Wasps -17 handicap is at 10/11 for this fixture* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October) which would be a fantastic result.

It should be do-able as well, because Exeter are not likely going to risk too much on this game, with far more important fixtures coming up.

So the pressure here is all on Wasps to deliver the win by hook or by crook.

They do have the head to head form against the Chiefs, having won three of the last four meetings, and the last two on home soil against them.


Exeter Preview – Chiefs looking at a three-match losing streak

The Exeter Chiefs have lost their last two league games, but haven’t lost three in a row since February 2018.

The defeats against Saracens and Irish were not anything that mattered to them with the top spot in the league secured already.

Sandwiched in between the two league loses were back to back European Champions Cup wins over Northampton and Toulouse, putting the Chiefs through to the final for the first time.

So they have that to look forward to, as well as trying to claim the Premiership title as well.

So this game is not important to them, so they aren’t likely to be anywhere near full strength.

In midweek they lost at Sandy Park in a 19-22 reverse against London Irish, resting players there are their burst of European action.

Exeter are 15/2 underdogs in the match outright for success* (odds taken 23:45 GMT, Saturday, 3rd October).

But from a rugby betting perspective, it’s really not worth considering all that much.
