Worcester are having a tough time of things again this season as they have yet to collect a match victory since the opening weekend.

They face another tough task on Sunday as they welcome Wasps.

Worcester Preview – Tough times for the Warriors

Worcester took a declared home ‘victory’ over Harlequins this season because of a cancelled fixture and that’s all they have to show for the campaign since the opening weekend.

The Warriors took a win over London Irish by a one-point margin on the opening weekend of the season and that’s it.

They are W2 L6 for the season then after the cancelled fixture adjustments.

Worcester are the 11/5 underdogs in the match outright for Sunday’s Premiership rugby betting* (odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February).

Their chances of getting a win on the board look slim in this one as they are facing a Wasps side who have produced some excellent away form.

Another of the issues here for the Warriors lies in the head to head.

They have lost their last twelve Premiership fixtures against Wasps, not having beaten them since back in 2013.

So far in their home fixtures which they have played this season, along with the victory over London Irish, Worcester have lost to Exeter and Bath.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-10 winning margin
9/4

(odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February)

 

The warriors are the lowest scoring side in this season’s division. They have produced only an average of 15 points per fixture.

So that is likely to leave them vulnerable here and a Worcester +7 handicap is at even money* (odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February).

In last season’s corresponding fixture the Worcester Warriors did put up a good fight, losing by only a four-point margin.

Three of their last four defeats giant Wasps in the Premiership however they have lost by at least 12 points.

Once again this looks like it is going to be a struggle for a positive outcome for Worcester.

 

Wasps Preview – Can Wasps keep their away form strong?

There have been a couple of setbacks for Wasps recently as they have lost their last two league fixtures.

Those were home defeats suffered against Harlequins and Nottingham.

The last time that Wasps lost three straight league games was in December 2019.

But it is their away form which is really the big statistic here looking ahead to Premiership rugby betting.

Wasps have suffered only one defeat in their last nine away games in all competition.

That one defeat happened at Gloucester back in the round of this season’s league campaign.

In the match outright a win for Wasps is a strong 4/11 odds-on option* (odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February).

If they collect it, then that will be their 13th straight league victory over the Warriors, which again is some astonishing head to head form.

Wasps are W4 L4 for the season, so they have been a little hit and miss, especially in defence.

But it’s not looking too likely that Worcester have the arsenal to hurt them.

Wasps have played three away matches in the Premiership this season.

Along with their defeat at Gloucester, they have collected wins over Sale and Bath.

Both victories there for Wasps was by a margin of fewer than nine points.

A Wasps -7 handicap is pushing the line a little bit at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February).

It’s worth noting that their top try scorer Paolo Odogwu is on international duty with England at the moment as well.

Without question, those two home losses have been a big setback for Wasps, as they were heading into great form.

But they have a good chance to bounce back to form.

 

Worcester vs Wasps Betting Advice

Worcester just are not the big attacking threat that they would hope to be and ultimately that is where we think they fall down.

It’s been a rough season for them not having collected a victory since the opening weekend of the season.

That win was only by a 1 point margin. So we think Wasps can just cover that -7 handicap at 10/11* (odds taken 0612 GMT Friday, 12th February).
