Worcester are still struggling along for form and they won’t get an easy game as they play host to Northampton on Friday night at Sixways. The Saints, however, are on a massive slump of form. The search for a winning touch will be on for both in this one.

Worcester seeking upturn in form

The Warriors are having a tough time of things currently. They have managed to take only one victory in their last seven games. That was a victory over London Irish back at the end of December.

Last weekend they went to Welford Road to face Leicester and left with a 14-8 defeat, not managing to get on the scoreboard in the second half of the game. Worcester have failed to score more than ten points in three of their last five league games.

At Sixways they have lost their last two Premiership games. They were narrow defeats against Wasps (four points) and Bath (one point). So for Worcester v Northampton rugby betting, a narrow handicap looks to be a decent starting point.

Our betting prediction:
Northampton -3 handicap

(odds taken 04:28 GMT, Wednesday 5th March)

The Warriors have not lost by more than a six-point margin in any of their last four league fixtures (home and away combined). If you take all competitions into consideration, Worcester are on a three-match losing streak at Sixways.

The last time that they lost four home games in a row was in 2015/16. Given that the Warriors have managed to claim just one victory in their last eight meetings with Northampton, then punters will be hesitant about backing them.


Saints look to snap losing streak

Northampton Saints have lost their last four league games. This is their worst run of league form since 2017. However, to put a positive spin on things at least, they have won two of their last three games on the road (all competitions).

So that should pull them into contention for their trip to Sixawys. Last weekend they were at home against Saracens and the Saints were narrowly beaten 21-27 in the fixture, blowing a superb 15-8 half time lead they had built at Franklin’s Gardens.

The thing about that, is that if they can build a lead against Worcester, then the Warriors aren’t as likely to mount as big of a comeback as Saracens did.

Going back to their two wins in their last three away games, the only loss in that sequence that the Saints suffered, was against current Premiership leaders Exeter on February 23rd.


Worcester vs Northampton Betting Advice

Two teams out of form. Which way do we swing in rugby betting for this one? There is Worcester who have been losing but not by any kind of massive margins.

But then you have Northampton whose only away loss recently came against the powerful Exeter. So that kind of evens things out. The head to head, however, is where the scales get really tipped.


Key Facts – Worcester vs Northampton Betting Tip

  • Worcester have won one of their last eight against the Saints
  • Worcester have lost their last two league home games
  • Northampton are on a four-match losing streak of league form


The Saints have lost one of their last eight against Worcester and therefore, they are a bit of value to collect the away win in this one. But this looks as it will be tight, so a Saints -3 handicap looks decent value.
