This is the big one of the weekend from the Premiership as reigning champions Exeter make a trip to face Wasps.

It has been business as usual for the Chiefs this season who made it four wins from four with a victory over Gloucester last time out.

Wasps have had a rockier start to the season than expected, but dug out a great away win over Sale last weekend.

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps do a number on the Chiefs?

Last weekend Wasps had a tough game on their hands as they paid a visit to Sale Sharks.

But they came away with maximum points after a narrow 26-23 win in a cracking fixture.

That was just the second league win of the season for them and it saw Wasps falling to three straight league defeats.

The home side will be underdogs for this fixture. They are a 2/1 option for the victory* (odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January).

But after their slow start to the Premiership campaign, Wasps did win both European fixtures.

Then came that victory over Sale back on the domestic front, so perhaps they are starting to get some good momentum going.

Earlier this season Wasps suffered a loss in league action at the Ricoh to Newcastle in round three.

That was the only loss that they have taken at the venue since Sale won there back in August last season.

The head to head form between Wasps and Exeter is actually interesting. It has been three wins each in their last six meetings.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-10 winning margin

(odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January)


There was a resounding 46-5 win for Wasps over Exeter the last time that they hosted them in the league.

That was at the back end of last season in a result, and a match, that Exeter weren’t interested in at the time.

It does mean that only one of the last three meetings have been settled by a margin of fewer than 7 points.

For rugby betting in his fixture, a Wasps +6 handicap is up at a quote of 10/11 currently* (odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January).


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs to make it five from five?

The last time that Exeter lost a Premiership match was on their visit to the Ricoh last October against Wasps.

At the time they were comfortably leading the Premiership and had eyes on the European Champions Cup as well.

Their only win at the Ricoh since 2015 happened in 2018, but that’s a little misleading.

Exeter have won two of their last three away games in the league against Wasps.

The last meeting that they had was in late October when Exeter claimed a 19-13 win over Wasps in the Premiership title match.

Given that they have already won all four league matches this season, the Chiefs are a quote of 4/9 in the match outright* (odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January).

Already they have put up some staggering figures on the board as they continue to look unplayable.

Last weekend they played host to Gloucester and earned a 28-20 victory.

Exeter Chiefs have tallied 136 points already in their four matches of this new campaign.

That is a fantastic average of 34 points per game. On top of that, they currently boast the best defensive record in the division.

Gloucester scored a couple of tries against them at Sandy Park last weekend, and that was only the second and third tries of the season that the Chiefs have conceded.

So they look as strong as ever and head and shoulders above everyone else.

They are so difficult to play against and a Chiefs 1-10 winning margin looks a nice prospect for rugby betting at 9/4* (odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January).


Wasps vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

So we are going to consider the away win happening in the outcome of this top clash at the Ricoh.

Wasps are coming into form on the back of a couple fo European wins and then a narrow scrape against Sale in the league last weekend.

But we don’t think that they’ve totally proven their form yet and we can see them just coming up short.


Key Facts – Wasps vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Wasps have won their last three games in all options
  • Wasps beat Exeter in last season’s corresponding fixture
  • Exeter Chiefs have won all four league matches this season


Exeter are a powerhouse and should collect the points. So we are sticking with the Chiefs 1-10 winning margin for extended odds on them at 9/4* (odds taken 0155 GMT, Friday, 1st January).

That looks a comfortable margin. They were rattled a little bit by Glocusetser last weekend, but still, even when they bend, they rarely break.

The head to head is interesting as it’s split evenly over the last six meetings. But that to us raises the probability of an away win.
