Exeter v Bath Preview

Exeter are on a three-match winning streak in the Premiership at the moment and in full control of their own destiny at the top of the table. They head into the weekend with an eight-point lead over Saracens now. That is largely in part to the form of Saracens having tanked recently. The Chiefs have not lost at home in the league for over a year now.

So the Chiefs have an advantage and will be looking to hold onto it at Sandy Park on Sunday. Exeter have won their last four games against Bath in the league and the last time that they played host to them, they ran up 49 points against the West Country boys. It is going to be difficult for Bath to get into the game with Exeter boasting the best defensive record in the division.

Bath are sat in the mid-table and are struggling for a bit of consistency having gone W2 L3 in their last five games. Their road form has been poor as they have only managed to get the one road victory (across all competitions) since the middle of last September. So this is going to be a difficult trip to Sandy Park without question. Bath’s last success there was a 13-11 win in October 2016. Last time out they produced a fantastic home win over Saracens. Can they raise their game to the same level this weekend?

Exeter v Bath Prediction

It is hard to look past the home form of Exeter which is just so strong. They should have enough about them at Sandy Park to produce a solid win. But the +11 handicap on Bath looks generous at 10/11 so it’s worth having a go at that* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 20th, 2019 at 11:11 pm)
