Wasps Preview – Will Wasps continue their strong charge?

It has been a W4 L2 record from Wasps in the Premiership this season, leaving them inside the top four.

There has been a big return of points as well. They have scored 176 points in their six fixtures so far, the best in the division.

So they will be expected to see off the challenge of Harlequins on Sunday in this home fixture.

In the match outright for rugby betting a win for Wasps is at 2/5* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

In their home matches this season they have beaten two of the three teams currently above them in the standings.

Wasps beat Bristol Bears 23-20 and stung Exeter Chiefs massively in a 34-5 win over the reigning champions.

So that was a big statement.

Wasps lost their other home game in a shock upset by the visiting Newcastle Falcons.

Since that loss against Newcastle, Wasps have gone on a five-match winning streak in all competitions.

A Wasps -7 handicap at 10/11 is available on this one* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-7 winning margin

(odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January)


Wasps and Harlequins traded away win in the league last season.

The only other time that Wasps have lost at the Ricoh Arena to Quins happened back in 2017.

There really is little to split these two from the most recent league head to head, with Wasps 3-2 up.

Wasps are also W3 L2 in their last five league home games against Quins.

But they are strong enough and have enough momentum about them to score a win in this fixture.

Their top try-scorer is Paolo Odogwu who has been called up to the England Six Nations squad.

So they miss him and a Wasps 1-7 winning margin may be worth pushing for at 5/2* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins win again at the Ricoh

Can Harlequins make it back to back wins at the Ricoh after last season’s success?

They have not won since a victory at Gloucester in round 3 of this season’s Premiership campaign.

But, not counting walkover results for cancelled fixtures, Harlequins are on a five-match winning streak on the road in the top flight.

That’s some form.

In the match outright they are a quote of 2/1 to pull off another success* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

Overall it has been a W2 D1 L2 record from Quins this season, so you’re never quite sure what is coming.

In their last league fixture, they were surprisingly held at home to draw by London Irish.

On their travels, they have beaten Northampton and Gloucester.

It’s worth noting that in those two games they scored more than 30 points in each of them.

So there is a chance that Harlequins could some sort of say in this contest.

Each of the last three matches between Wasps and Harlequins at the Ricoh have been very closely contested ones.

Those three matches were all settled by a margin of no more than four points, Quins winning two of those.

So with that in mind, a Quins +7 handicap could be worth playing for at 10/11* .(odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January)

It does offer some appeal, epically with Wasps missing their top try scorer.

Either way, there’s usually plenty of excitement when these two square off.


Wasps vs Harlequins Betting Advice

We think that Wasps will have enough to get the job done on the day. We don’t see it being by a huge margin though.

To back that up, the last three meetings at the Ricoh have been inside of that for Harlequins.
