Wasps and Newcastle are both in the bottom five in the table and both lost their last Premiership Rugby fixtures.

This may be a tight scrap in Coventry. Wasps have lost their last three league matches on the spin in the top flight.

But they will be facing a Falcons side who have not claimed a league success since mid-October.

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps break their slump?

It’s a three-match losing streak that Wasps find themselves on in the Premiership.

However, that may not tell the whole tale as each of those league defeats were away from home.

There is a totally different story by Wasps on home turf, where they have won their last five in a row in Coventry across all tournaments.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for Wasps is at 1/16* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes).

In the Premiership only, it’s a four-match winning streak at home that they are on.

Going back to their current three-match losing streak of form, they haven’t lost four in a row in the top flight since March last year.

That run incidentally, was ended with a victory against Newcastle Falcons.

Interestingly Wasps have lost back to back home matches against Newcastle in Premiership Rugby.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps -7 HT Handicap

Bet at Ladbrokes

* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes)


With home advantage on Saturday, Wasps certainly look the stronger pick of the two.

They have their assets, such as holding the best line out success rate in the Premiership.

In their last home match, they put seven tries on the board in a victory over Bath.

Wasps have posted at least 26 points in three of their last four home matches.

This big run of positive home form by Wasps included victories over the current top two sides of Leicester Tigers and Saracens.


Newcastle Falcons Preview – Falcons to remain winless

The Newcastle Falcons did have a rare taste of victory in their last match, a Premiership Cup win over Leicester.

But there is nothing that can be taken forward from that result into this Premiership Rugby league match on Saturday.

Before that Premiership Cup victory over Leicester, Newcastle had lost six in a row in all tournaments.

The win for Newcastle Falcons in the match outright is at 10/1* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes).

Focusing only on their league form, it is a 10 match winless streak by the Falcons.

That’s the joint longest run of matches without a win this season alongside Bath.

The last victory that the Falcons took did happen on the road when they pulled off a shock win over Exeter in Round 8.

Newcastle Falcons have failed to go on and win any of their last 12 away matches when they have lost at the halftime break.

A Wasps -7 first half handicap rugby bet is at 5/6* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes).

They haven’t won a league match when trialling at the break since March 2019.

In their current four-match away losing streak in the top flight, Newcastle have not posted more than 21 points in any of those fixtures.

Twice in those four matches, they didn’t get above 10.


Wasps vs Newcastle Falcons Betting Advice

This looks like a good opportunity for Wasps to bounce back to winning ways and the Wasps -16 handicap at 10/11 doesn’t look unreasonable* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes).

Their recent form is a little misleading having played their last three on the road.

They have produced some excellent home wins against some tough opposition recently.


Key Facts – Wasps vs Newcastle Falcons Betting Tip

  • Wasps have won their last four home Premiership matches
  • Wasps have lost their last three league fixtures, all away from home
  • Newcastle Falcons are without a win in 10 league matches


The second rugby betting tip for this one is the Wasps -7 First Half Handicap at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:31 GMT on March 24th, 2022 at Ladbrokes).

They should be able to start strongly enough and build some early momentum.

Newcastle are not a huge threat in attack and therefore it should be Wasps on the front foot and keeping the scoreboard ticking over.
