Saracens will be looking to bounce back to winning ways on their return to Premiership Rugby action on Sunday.

After a loss at home in their last league game, will they take their frustrations out on the struggling Wasps?

While it hasn’t been the strongest of seasons for Wasps, they have won their last two on home turf.

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps upset the odds again?

There was a momentous success for Wasps in their last Premiership Rugby home game.

They came up with a 16-13 win over Leicester Tigers, becoming the first team to beat the Tigers this season in any competition.

Can they defy the odds again on Sunday as they face Sarries?

Wasps are 6/4 in the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair).

Their recent form has improved somewhat, having taken three wins in their last five in all competitions (L2).

In the recent European action in the Champions Cup, they beat Stade Toulousain before getting hammered away from home by Munster.

Digging into the home form of Wasps they have won their last three.

That was two in the Premiership and an earlier home win over Toulouse in the Heineken Cup.

So credit is due to them there because they had lost five on the spin in Coventry before that.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair)


The last time that Wasps hosted Saracens was in February 2020 in a Premiership Rugby clash.

Wasps ran out 60-10 winners in that fixture.

The victory snapped a three-match losing home streak that they had been on against Sarries in all competitions.

Home and away combined, Wasps have won two of their last three against Saracens.

But this does look to be a tough home game for them.

That is reflected in the 10/11 rugby betting odds on a Wasps +5 handicap* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair).


Saracens Preview – Can Sarries return to winning ways?

Saracens missed out on making it three Premiership Rugby wins on the spin when they hosted Gloucester last time.

Saracens were topped by a single point at the StoneX by the Cherry & Whites in a cracking match.

That leaves them with a W2 L3 record from their last five Premiership fixtures.

So they have had a couple of wobbles.

But Saracens are the 1/2 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair).

In total, they have only lost three times this season in the top flight action, but it’s just that two of them have come in their last three now.

In their last four away games in the Premiership, Saracens have lost just one, which was at Exeter in December.

Against Wasps, Saracens have lost just twice since 2017, and they are W5 L2 in their last seven visits to Coventry in all competitions.

Saracens are on a W8 D1 L3 record this season in the top flight and look well on course for a top-four finish.

At the end of Round 12, they were the top-scoring team in the Premiership.

It has been an average of 34 points per game that they have produced this season.

Only Leicester and Exeter have conceded fewer points than Stances have done this season.

Last weekend they hosted London Irish in the Challenge Cup and beat them convincingly.

Can they build some momentum now back on league duty?


Wasps vs Saracens Betting Advice

Saracens do look the more likely of the two and they have a strong side out for their starting XV as well.

So it is the Saracens -5 handicap at 10/11 that is the first option for rugby betting here* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair).

They have done well enough on the road this season, to suggest that they just about cover that.


Key Facts – Wasps vs Saracens Betting Tip

  • Wasps are W2 L5 in their last seven home fixtures against Saracens
  • Wasps are the only team to beat Leicester Tigers this season
  • Saracens have lost two of their last four league matches


Saracens have lost a bit of consistency, but part of that has come with the European engagements causing a bit of disruption.

They have a good record in Coventry and can bank the win.

Wasps have improved lately, including home wins over Leicester and London Irish the last twice in league action at home.

They may be able to keep it fairly tight.

So the Saracens 1-10 winning margin is the option at 21/10* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT on January 28th, 2022 at Betfair).
