Wasps Preview – Wasps for the home win?

Wasps will be looking for a bounce-back performance in this fixture after losing last weekend.

They had been on a terrific five-match winning streak in all competitions, but that ended when they met Harlequins last weekend.

It was a shock 17-49 home defeat that Wasps suffered as well in quite the big upset.

The home win for them this weekend is trading at 4/9 odds-on* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

In their other league home games this season they have beaten Exeter and Bristol while having lost against Newcastle.

That leaves them with a W 4 L2 record overall for this season.

But they have been scoring well against the campaign averaging 29 points per game.

A Wasps -5 handicap option is at even money for the game* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 6-10 winning margin

The recent head to head between Wasps and Northampton Saints is even at two wins each.

In last season’s campaign, Wasps lost their first-ever Premiership home game at the Ricoh against the Saints.

Wasps had been on a five-match winning home streak against them before that. Will they earn some revenge?


Northampton Saints Preview – Can the Saints spring a surprise at the Ricoh?

This is an interesting game for the Saints who only W2 D3 this season from their completed matches.

Not counting their walkovers this season, the Saints have won their last two league games.

Those were at home against Worcester and then a good road win at the struggling Gloucester last weekend.

The last time that the saints won three league games in a row was back in 2017.

On their top-flight travels in his campaign, there hasn’t been much to cheer about.

Saints have lost games at Bristol and Sale before sneaking the win at Gloucester by a 5-point margin.

All three of Northampton’s away games in the league have been settled by a margin of fewer than ten points, two of them by five points or less.

The Saints +5 handicap option to that end, is at 10/11 as a rugby betting option* (odds taken 13:13 GMT, Thursday, 4th February).
