Worcester are stuck down in the bottom three of the table and really at this point are not playing for anything.

They face a tricky home match on Wednesday night as they welcome Harlequins.

Quins need to get themselves some hot momentum going to try and raise a challenge for a top-four finish.

Worcester Preview – Can Warriors get out of a slump?

Worcester have lost their two games since their return to action and it’s a long losing streak they are on.

Defeats against Gloucester and then last weekend against Wasps have left the Warriors on an eight-match losing streak in all competitions.

They have not collected a win in the Premiership at Sixways since December 28th when they beat London Irish.

With the losses mounting up now, will they break their slump as the 4/9 favourites on Wednesday night* (odds taken 21:12 GMT, Tuesday 25th August)

That is going to be a big ask of punters to back them at odds-on to get a win.

In none of their last five league games now (L5) have Worcester managed to put more than 17 points on the board in a fixture.

In their last two league home fixtures, Worcester have managed just 25 points in total in defeats against Northampton and Gloucester.

Our betting prediction:
Worcester 1-7 Winning Margin

So are there any positives for them in the head to head with Harlequins?

Well, the Warriors have won three of the last four meetings, including taking a 19-14 away win against the Quins earlier this season.

It has been back to back wins for them at Sixways as well against Harlequins.

Worcester are the lowest-scoring side in the Premiership currently.


Harlequins Preview – Can Quins nab the away win?

Harlequins are eleven points outside of the top four, so really aren’t going to reach that unless they start tearing things up.

It has been a W1 L1 record from them on their return to action.

In their first game back Quins took an excellent home win over top-four side Sale, but then they fell to a loss last weekend against Saracens.

That leaves Quins with a W2 L3 record in their last five league games.

Their away record leaves a lot to be desired as well as they have collected one road victory this season, which was at Wasps in December.

Actually going back to March last year, that win at Wasps is the only away win for Quins in the top flight since then.

Harlequins can perhaps lean on the positive that they haven’t lost both games in a single season to Worcester since 2004/05.

But then you can swing things back around and look at how poor of a record that they have at Sixways.

Harlequins have not won there since January 2016 and you start stacking things together and you can see the 15/8 underdogs status on them as viable* (odds taken 21:12 GMT, Tuesday 25th August).


Worcester vs Harlequins Betting Advice

This is a very interesting game. It is also extremely tough to call. Harlequins are a side who struggle out on the road.

It’s been poor stuff from them, but they did rack up 24 points in a loss at Saracens on the weekend.

They are facing a low-scoring Worcester side here as well, so that is the dilemma. Are they good enough to get just their second away-win of the campaign?


Key Facts – Worcester vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Worcester have lost their last eight games in all competitions
  • Worcester have won 3 of the last 4 against Quins
  • Harlequins have won 1 away game since March last year


Quins are the better of the two teams, but are they good enough to win away from home?

We can’t trust that wholeheartedly, but would be happy to swing them a +5 handicap for 10/11 to expect them to at least stay close to the Warriors* (odds taken 21:12 GMT, Tuesday 25th August)..
