This is a mid-table clash at the end of the season with nothing but European hopes at stake for either of these sides.

Leicester and Wasps are 6th and 7th in the table respectively and the winner of this one will guarantee Heineken Champions Cup rugby next season.

The loser would then be sweating on other results going their way to secure a top-eight finish. That makes this Premiership rugby fixture nice and interesting.

Wasps Preview – Wasps favourites for the home win

Wasps picked up their third win in their last five games with a victory at London Irish last weekend.

They secured that victory by a three-point margin in an absorbing match.

Wasps have the goal of staying in the top eight at the end of the weekend.

That will secure them a place in the Champions Cup next season and they start this final weekend of the regular season in 7th.

In the match outright for ruby betting the win for Wasps is at 4/9* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).

In their last eight league fixtures, it has been a W4 L4 return by Wasps.

But it has been back to back successes that they have scored at the Ricoh Arena.

It was a five-match losing streak across all competitions that they had been on at the venue before that.

Wasps are making five changes to last weekend’s starting lineup, so they are going into this final game strongly.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021)


The home record of Wasps this season in Premiership rugby is W4 L6.

So they have had their struggles, especially it would seem, getting motivated against weaker opposition.

Two of those four home wins were against the current top two of Bristol and Exeter.

Of the four successes that they have taken at home, two of them were by a margin of double figures.

Four of their six defeats were by a margin of fewer than 10-points.

For Premiership rugby betting, a Wasps -6 handicap looks a fairly reasonable option at 10/11* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).


Leicester Tigers Preview – Can the Tigers snatch a rare road win?

Leicester Tigers have claimed two away victories this season in the Premiership.

Those were at the current bottom two sides Worcester and Gloucester.

They are the 13/8 underdogs in the match outright for Saturday’s rugby betting* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).

The Tigers have only managed to get above 20 points in two away fixtures for the campaign.

On both occasions they did, they still ended up on the losing side of things.

So the Leicester Tigers do look vulnerable for this game, the last of the regular season.

In their last six league games, Leicester have produced a W3 L3 record.

Leicester took a win at Worcester in their last road game, the last time they won back to back away fixtures was in 2018.

Another thing that does not read in their favour is the way that results have gone with their recent meetings with Leicester.

Each of the last seven meetings in the Premiership have all ended with a win for the home team on the day.


Wasps vs Leicester Tigers Betting Advice

Neither of these are in the greatest of form and both look vulnerable on their day. Wasps look far more fragile in defence.

But we don’t see a huge scoring threat coming from Leicester Tigers on the day, so we are pulling for the home win.

A Wasps -5 handicap is in play for us at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wasps vs Leicester Tigers Betting Tip

  • The last seven meetings have been won by the home side on the day
  • Wasps have taken back to back wins at the Ricoh

That’s Heineken Cup rugby next season, so both will be happy with their work.

Wasps have the scoring edge and therefore in rugby betting a Wasps 1-10 winning margin is at 23/10* (odds recorded 05:01 on June 10th, 2021).
