Despite not being at full strength, Saracens came up with a big win last weekend against the title-challenging Sale. That was a very good result for the club, who are going to be relegated. Wasps may not offer up enough to topple Saracens either.

Saracens find some positives

Because of their massive points deduction which guarantees relegation, Saracens put a superb win on the board last weekend.

They were playing host to Sale and earned a very good 35-22 win, despite being under pressure with only a four-point lead going for them at the half-time break.

Saracens have the scoring power in them, having recorded 33 league tries in his top-flight campaign. That is against the 23 only posted by Wasps.

If the points deduction wasn’t in play, Saracens’ W7 L3 record for the season plus bonus points would see them currently sitting second by one point to current leaders Exeter only.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens -5 Handicap

So even though they are in this tough position of not really playing for anything and not being at full strength currently because of the Six Nations international duties, they are ticking over.

Saracens are actually the top-scoring team in the league at the moment. They have the joint-best defensive record alongside that of Exeter as well. Back in September’s league meeting, Saracens took a 50-28 away win over Wasps.


Struggling Wasps have no sting

Wasps would be in big relegation trouble at the moment were it not for Saracens’ points deduction. So they have that to be thankful for. Wasps are W3 L7 for the season and this is a tough game at the Ricoh for them.

No team has conceded more points in this season’s Premiership than Wasps have done. Last weekend they had a disappointing 18-9 loss out at Leicester, the only team besides Saracens beneath them in the table.

Wasps vs Saracens Betting Advice

Saracens did a very good job in the second half of their contest against a dangerous Sale side last weekend. The away form of Sarries is nothing to write home about, but they do have the head to head form going over Wasps.


Key Facts – Wasps vs Saracens Betting Tip

  • Wasps have won one home game only this season
  • Wasps have only one of their five previous games at the Ricoh against Sarries
  • Saracens have one away win only since November (all competitions)


At the end of the day, the defence of Wasps just looks too vulnerable to warrant backing the home side to come up with the victory. With only one home win all season, seeing them take down the top-scoring side in the division isn’t too likely. Sarries may just handle a -5 handicap.
