Premiership Rugby Preview – 3.00 pm kick off

Exeter pretty much have the title in their hands at the moment. With just the four games to play, they will be defending a nine-point lead at the top on the weekend. Home advantage will certainly help that cause. They entertain Wasps who just burst out of a losing streak last weekend.

Exeter v Wasps Preview

Exeter are ticking over in fine form now, posting a five-match winning streak in the Premiership. Given that they have only suffered the one defeat at Sandy Park in all competitions since February last year, they are naturally going to be strong favourites to bag maximum points in this one.

Last weekend in the league Exeter produced a thumping 52-20 win out at Leicester and they have scored over thirty points in three of their last five fixtures. When they paid a visit to Wasps earlier this season they produced a 42-13 win, their third win in their last four games against Wasps in the league.

The only win that Wasps have produced against Exeter in their last five meetings was in a 13-7 victory at home last season against them. Wasps are pretty safe in the middle of the table but they haven’t been in great form lately. They were on a four-match losing streak in the league before producing a 28-16 win over Worcester last weekend.

They have suffered defeats against Leicester and Newcastle recently, two sides who are in the bottom three, so aren’t exactly red hot. So Wasps will be expected to struggle in this one especially with their record at Sandy Park. Wasps have failed to win any of their nine previous trips there in the Premiership, their best effort a 35-35 draw in February 2017.

Exeter v Wasps Prediction

Exeter are one fire at the moment and are putting up some big numbers on the scoreboard. They are -14 in the handicap for 10/11* (betting odds taken from bet365 on April 11th, 2019 at 4:56 pm) and you wouldn’t put it past them in putting up a big win in this one.
