Wasps made it two wins from two on their return to action and are laying down some serious top-four credentials at the moment.

They finished last weekend in third place and they will face fourth-placed Sale on Tuesday.

So this is a massive showdown with precious points up for grabs in that top-four race.

Sale needed a bounce-back performance after having been handed a defeat by Exeter last time out.

Wasps Preview – Wasps on a roll at the moment

Wasps collected an excellent and expected win over Worcester last weekend, a 32-17 success.

That’s now a five-match winning streak in the Premiership from them, but in none of those, they managed to pick up a bonus point.

At the Ricoh Arena, Wasps are on a three-match winning streak at the moment, their best run of form there since the 2017/2018 season.

With their fantastic momentum at the moment, Wasps are 1/7 odds-on in the match outright for this fixture* (odds taken 19:53 GMT Monday 24th August).

There’s obviously no value there so we have to go looking around the stats to try and find some value for Wasps v Sale rugby betting.

Interestingly, Wasps have won only one of their last four matches in the Premiership against Sale.

Earlier this season when they met, Wasps fell 28-18 on the road to the Sharks.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 8-14 HT Margin

(odds taken 19:53 GMT Monday 24th August)


It is a three-match losing streak that Wasps are on against Sale at the moment as well.

But their form is there at the moment to potentially see them snap that.

Wasps have taken out Worcester, Gloucester and Saracens in their last three home league fixtures.

In each of those they posted at least 30 points in scoring their victory.

A Wasps -12 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 19:53 GMT Monday 24th August).

They have covered that line in two of their last three home league fixtures.


Sale Preview – Can the Sharks bounce back

The restart to the season has not gone well for Sale. They are desperately in need of momentum.

It has been back to back losses against Harlequins and Exeter, which has really dented their top-four hopes.

Can they get back on track on Tuesday night? A four-point win would lift them two points clear of Wasps.

Sale have been one of the better defensive sides in the Premiership this season.

Only current league leaders Exeter have conceded fewer points than the Sharks have done and no team has conceded fewer tries against them than they have done.

So this is going to be a very interesting fixture, especially with their winning streak over Wasps.

Sale have won half of their last four away games in the Premiership, which isn’t a bad return really.

Overall in the head to head, the Sharks are 29-22 ahead of Wasps with 1 drawn game.

Of those 29 victories over Wasps nine have been away from home against them.

It was a convincing enough 28-18 win that they took at home against Wasps back in November.

That followed a 24-20 home win over them in last season’s Premiership.

None of the last three wins that Sale have taken over Wasps have been by a margin of more than 10 points.


Wasps vs Sale Betting Advice

There is going to be some superb action from the Premiership on Tuesday night, with all of the current top-four in action.

This match is going to be a tight contest by the looks of it.

Wasps have superb momentum going at the moment, while Sale haven’t quite gotten their game together since the restart.

But then Sale has the head to head form over Wasps, so which way are we going?


Key Facts – Wasps vs Sale Betting Tip
