Wasps collected a good win for themselves last weekend on their starts, as they earned an away win at Northampton.

So it is back to home soil for them this weekend and they are favourites for this one against Worcester.

It has been a season of struggles for the Warriors who were torn to shreds by Glocuster last weekend.

Wasps Preview – Wasps can win again

Wasps took an excellent 34-21 away win at Franklin’s Gardens last weekend against the Northampton Saints.

That has left Wasps sitting in fourth place in the table so they are harbouring big ambitions.

Wasps are on a W7 L7 record for the campaign but notably only current leaders Exeter has tallied more points than Wasps have done.

They are averaging 26 points per game this season, but that’s not the only side of the coin.

Wasps have conceded the second-highest tally of points in the Premiership this season, with only London Irish having shipped more.

It is a four-match winning streak now that Wasps are on in the top flight, which is their best form since 2017.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps -17 H/C

Bet at Coral

(odds taken 00:50 GMT, Thursday 20th August)


The last time that they won three home games in a row during a season was in April 2018.

But they should have a good chance in this one and a Wasps -17 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 00:50 GMT, Thursday 20th August).

We also need to bring the head to head form into focus for this Wasps v Worcester betting preview.

Wasps are on an eleven match winning streak against the Warriors in the Premiership.

They should be something of a banker in this one.


Worcester Preview – Warriors struggling still

The Worcester Warriors have tanked to seven straight league defeats now.

Last weekend they played host to Gloucester and were smashed at Sixways 15-44.

They are likely to be facing a very long evening in this and a visit to the Ricoh cannot be enticing.

That is because Worcester have lost their last six trips there in all tournaments.

The Warriors have won on the road this season actually, just once, which was at Harlequins way back in round four.

Worcester are the lowest scoring side in the Premiership this season with 217 tallied.

That’s an average of about 15 points per game which falls a long way short of the output that Sale has produced.
