After a sticky start to the new season, Exeter Chiefs seem to have gotten themselves into the swing of things with back to back wins.

Will they be able to go and collect maximum points in Premiership Rugby action on the weekend as they visit Wasps?

The home side should have some wind in their sails having won both home fixtures this season.

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps maintain home form?

Having had a bye round in this season’s campaign, all three matches that Wasps have played have been won by the home side on the day.

Wasps have taken good home wins over Bristol Bears and Northampton so far this season.

That leaves them with a W2 L1 record this season having lost at Newcastle.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting on Saturday, Wasps are 7/4 underdogs* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

Wasps have suffered one defeat in their last five matches played home in Coventry.

So there is a little bit of home form behind them.

On top of that Wasps have lost only two of their last seven home games against Exeter in Coventry.

With back to back home wins over the Chiefs, can Wasps make it count on the weekend again?

They are looking to win three home games in a row against Exeter for the first time.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 1-12 winning margin
15/8

* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021)

 

The overall Premiership record that Wasps have against Exeter is W8 D1 L16.

That’s the lowest win rate that they have against any team.

They are looking to make it three home wins in a row and it would be the first time since 2016 that they won their opening three home games of a campaign if it happens.

A Wasps +6 handicap is at 10/11 in rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

To their credit, they haven’t conceded more than 20 points in any of their three matches this campaign.

If they can turn out a similar defensive effort, that could keep them in this one.

 

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs building momentum?

Surprisingly Exeter Chiefs lost back to back matches at the start of this new campaign.

Those were reverses against Leicester Tigers and then at home against Northampton in a big upset.

But they do look as if they have steadied the ship a little bit.

Wins over Sale Sharks and then Worcester Warriors last weekend have seen Exeter get back on track.

In last weekend’s win over Worcester at Sandy Park, Exeter ran riot in a 42-5 success.

In the match outright, Exeter are 4/9 odds on for Saturday* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

The only game that Exeter have lost in their last five on the road was at Leicester in Round One.

They have won four (L4) of their last eight Premiership matches against Wasps.

So this could be a tight one.

Exeter Chiefs have not managed to secure a half time lead in either of their Premiership Rugby away matches this season.

But they are W1 L1 from those occasions.

In three of their last four road games in which they were either trailing or level at half time, Exeter have won.

So they are generally a strong second-half team.

Their kicking game is going well at the moment and that should keep them in this one.

The Exeter Chiefs -6 handicap is in play here at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

They covered that in their one away win this season, a tough one at Sale Sharks.

 

Wasps vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

We have to look at the piece of form that was Exeter’s win at Sale Sharks in their last road game.

That 10-point winning margin kick-started their season and therefore the Exeter -6 handicap is the way to swing at 10/111* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

They look to have found a bit of momentum and can be backed to sustain it.

 

Key Facts – Wasps vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Wasps have won both home matches this season
  • Wasps have only a 32% win rate against Exeter in the Premiership
