It has been a mixed start to the new Premiership rugby season for Wasps with one win and one loss under their belt.

They get a stern test at home on the weekend as they face the in-form Northampton.

The Saints have come flying out of the gates this season, winning all three matches, including an away success at Exeter.

Wasps Preview – Wasps favourites for the home win

It has been a mixed start to the new season for Wasps, who have played two matches so far after receiving a Bye in Round 2.

They kicked off the new Premiership Rugby season in fine style, hammering Bristol Bears.

But then a narrow defeat away at Newcastle Falcons followed, which will have been disappointing for them.

But for Sunday’s clash with Northampton, Wasps are the 4/6 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

Across their last eight Premiership matches, Wasps are W4 L4.

So they are hit and miss, but they have won three of their last four in Coventry (L1).

So that could be a favourable factor as well as the home support as they took on the unbeaten Saints.

This doesn’t look the easiest of fixtures for them, however.

Wasps have suffered back to back home defeats against Northampton in the league.

That was after putting together a five-match winning streak at home against them in the Premiership.

Our betting prediction:
Northampton 1-10 winning margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021)


Wasps have suffered six defeats in total in Coventry during the 2021 calendar year, winning the other four.

Never before have Wasps suffered more than six home league defeats in a calendar year.

If we look back a little further at their home form, it is a W4 L7 record that they have banked in their last eleven home league games.

In last season’s corresponding fixture, Wasps suffered a 17-22 defeat and then lost by a five-point margin in the reverse fixture.

A Wasps -2 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 for Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

This doesn’t appear to be a game that will be settled by a wide margin.


Northampton Saints Preview – can the Saints extend winning streak?

Northampton will be delighted with their start to the new campaign as they look to make it four wins from four.

Home victories over Gloucester and London Irish sandwiched an impressive victory in Devon against the Exeter Chiefs.

Their last two league matches have been settled by no more than a 2-point margin.

So again, the handicap line is rightly tight on this one.

The Northampton Saints +2 does have some appeal at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

Northampton are competitive at the moment and have shown they can scrap it out in tight fixtures.

The last time that Northampton won their first four matches of a new season was in 2012.

Can they match that?

Given that they have won three of their last four matches in Coventry (all competitions) then they look to have a reasonable chance on Sunday.

Northampton Saints have conceded at least 20 points in all three fixtures this season.

Just to size up this improvement out of the gates, Northampton had won just 3 of their previous 21 Premiership matches in which they had conceded at least 20 points.

The Saints have scored more points in the first quarter of league matches this season than any other team.

So that hints at a strong start coming from them.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for Northampton is at 11/10* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

Can they make it three in a row against Wasps?


Wasps vs Northampton Saints Betting Advice

The defeat for Wasps at Newcastle last week will have been a big concern for them after such a bright opening.

They didn’t create too much against a solid, efficient team.

So we do think that there could be some struggles ahead for Wasps in Coventry on the weekend and it’s the Northampton win at 11/10 that is our first rugby tip* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wasps vs Northampton Saints Betting Tip

  • Wasps have lost their last two against Northampton
  • Wasps have suffered six home losses in 2021 and have never lost more than that in a calendar year
  • Northampton Saints have won all three matches played this season


Northampton have been scrapping along well, and that narrow victory away at Exeter obviously stands out.

They will need to tighten up in defence, but with their goal kicking in fine shape and a strong start, they can get in this.

A Northampton 1-10 winning margin is the bigger play for rugby betting at 11/4* (odds recorded 19:19 GMT on October 7th, 2021).
