Premiership Rugby Predictions And Betting Tips

Harlequins vs Exeter (Friday, 19:45 GMT)


Harlequins have been struggling this season after a slow start has left them 19 points off the top two sides with only eight game gone. Three wins and five defeats has seen Quins pick up 19 points, while they were forced to stomach an awful loss against Bristol, who had only won once in the league prior to their meeting. Visitors Exeter on the other hand have been perfect so far, and they look like a great bet to win the league this season. After eight they have won eight, picking up six bonus points, meaning they are level with Saracens on 38 points at the top. The Chiefs and Sarries have continually displayed the fact they are in a different league to the rest of the Premiership, and we cannot see anything but an Exeter win.



*Odds correct at 12:57 GMT on 27/11/2018


Bristol vs Leicester (Saturday, 13:00 GMT)


Bristol host Leicester on Saturday in a match that is very difficult to call. On the one hand, Bristol have been poor all season, winning just two games which has seen them onto 13 points. On the other hand, both of their wins have come at home, and their last match ended in a very close-run 32-28 loss to Wasps at the Ricoh Arena as the side continue to grow. For Leicester, this season has been a poor one, with their last home game a brave 31-29 loss to top side Exeter. Three wins has seen the Tigers onto 18 points, meaning they are 20 off the summit and already seemingly out of the running to win the league. Their last match saw them fall to a 27-22 loss to Saracens, with the game disappointing as Sarries had a lot of players on international duty, meaning if the Tigers ever had a chance to beat the reigning-champions, it was then. Leicester’s last game on the road ended in a thumping 36-13 loss to Gloucester, and for this reason we are backing a home win, although we think this will be a very close game. 




Gloucester vs Worcester (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)


Gloucester have been one of the teams that look most likely to keep pace with Exeter and Saracens at the top of the table, but they have still only won four times, and the 23 points they have picked up means they are 15 short of the two top sides. This huge gap was further exemplified when they travelled to Sandy Park to play against Exeter, and they left as losers with the score finishing 23-6, with the away side unable to cross the white line once. Worcester have been enjoying a fairly promising start to their season with three wins in eight. The side come into this one on the back of a 20-13 win over Harlequins which will have boosted their confidence hugely. However, in their last two away games they have struggled to keep pace with their hosts, losing by 17 points to Exeter and 15 points to Bath. Therefore, we are recommending backing a Gloucester side that are strong at home to beat Worcester with a handicap of 12 points.




Saracens vs Wasps (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)


Wasps travel to face Saracens on Saturday in their toughest test of the campaign. Despite the fact they have won five of their eight games, the visitors are not in the same league as their opponents, although that can be said of every other side in the league with the exception of Exeter. Their -14 points difference will worry the away side as Saracens have been so good at pinpointing weaknesses in the opposition in recent seasons, and with 285 points scored along with 36 tries scored by Saracens, we think Wasps could be in for a bit of a thumping. 




Northampton vs Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)


Northampton have been indifferent this season, with their form of last year seemingly carrying over to their current campaign. Three wins in eight is fairly standard for the league at the moment, which is why they are hardly standing out, while they have scored a fairly impressive 192 points, only to concede 198 in the process. While the Saints have been poor, Newcastle have been worse. Just two wins has seen them onto 11 points and they are struggling to score, with only 17 tries to their name, the second-lowest in the league. While the Falcons did win their last match, it was a home game, and they have looked so weak at different periods of the season, so we cannot see anything but a home win here. 




Bath vs Sale (Sunday, 15:00 GMT)


Bath have been under-par this year, with just three wins, a draw and four defeats seeing them pick up 17 points, meaning they are closer to Newcastle at the bottom than they are to Exeter and Saracens at the top. Their last game actually ended in a very disappointing loss to the league’s bottom side, and Newcastle ran out 16-8 winners to humiliate their opponents. Sale arrive with three wins to their name, but they are three points further back than their hosts due to Bath’s draw and their extra bonus point. Sale have been incredibly poor this season, and they are the side with the lowest tries scored this season, showing their struggles. Sale may have won their last game, but travelling to The Rec is never easy, and we are therefore backing the home side to come out with a vital win.

Premiership Rugby Outright Betting Market Explained

The rugby season is a long and arduous one, and nothing can be taken for granted. One side can make the play-offs one season, only to struggle in relegation mire the next, and this is what makes the Premiership so exciting.

There are not as many outright markets on offer as there are match betting markets, but the outright markets can offer good value, although betting here will require a lot of patience as they take the entire season to be completed, unless you placed a bet in the final few weeks of the season.

Premiership Winner

This market allows the bettor to predict who they feel will be the overall winner in the competition that year. Unlike the Premier League in football, which crowns the team that finishes first as the champion, the rugby Premiership pits the top four teams against one-another in a play-off, with the winner of the semi-finals progressing to a final, where the winner of this is crowned champion. Therefore, if you backed Leicester in this market and they finish third, all is not lost as they can still win the entire competition through the play-offs. This market requires patience and a keen eye, along with some luck.

Premiership Regular Season Winner

As mentioned above, the Premiership does not end when each team has played their allocation of home and away games. Indeed, the play-offs are the highlight of the season for many, but this does not make the regular season any less exciting. In this market you will look to back the side you feel will finish in first-place at the end of the regular season. In the 2017/18 season Exeter Chiefs finished at the top of the table, which would see a bet on them in this market pay out despite the Chiefs losing to Saracens in the play-off final at Twickenham.


Premiership Top Try scorer 

In this market you are able to back the player you feel will finish the season with the most tries. The Premiership has no shortage of superb scoring talent, with the likes of Christian Wade, Jonny May and Denny Solomona all fancied to top score prior to the start of the season. Chris Ashton signed for Sale this summer, and he returns to England on the back of a superb scoring season in France, and he will fancy his chances of finishing as the player to cross the line the most.

Premiership Rugby Match Betting Markets Explained

Rugby Union, like most other sports, is very well covered in betting, with markets available for almost every facet of the game. This can often cause things to get confusing for the bettors, with those that are not experts in rugby potentially needing some help sifting through what each market means. 

Fortunately, we here at Bettingpro pride ourselves on our knowledge of cricket and, like football, rugby and many other sports, we offer a full guide to the available markets, and the best way to make the most out of them.

Match Winner

The simplest market in the game. Here, you simply back the side you feel will win the match, it is as easy as that. This market is best utilised when two teams are quite evenly-matched. If it is difficult to pick a winner from the two, such as in a match between Wasps and Leicester, then the odds on offer will hold more value, whereas backing Saracens against Bristol will see Bristol offer huge value, but only because Saracens will be huge favourites.

Handicaps

This market is a way of backing a favourite in the game, but it can offer good value. Simply put, you back a team with a handicap of either minus points or plus points to win the game. For example, if you want to back Saracens to beat Wasps, you can back them with a handicap of -9 points, which means that if Saracens win by 8 points or less, then your bet will lose, while if they win, for example, 25-10, then your bet will win. You can also back it the other way, and if you back Wasps +9 and they lose 16-13, then your bet will still win because you backed the side with a handicap of +9. 

Half-Time/Full-Time

In this market, the bettor is able to back the team they feel will be ahead at half-time, and the team they feel will lead at full-time. This can prove very valuable if you correctly predict a minnow leading the favourite at half-time, only to then lead at full-time. It can also offer value if you back the underdog to lead at half-time and then full-time. 

Winning Margin

This market gives the punter the chance to back how many points they think a certain team will win by. Backing a side to win by 1-10 points, 11-20 points, 21-30 points and so on can offer very good value as the game of rugby is an exceptionally unpredictable one. If you are able to put money on the correct outcome, it can offer a good return.

Team To Score First

Here, the bettor chooses which side he feels will be the first on the scoreboard. Unlike football, which only has one way of scoring, rugby players can open the scoring via a try, a penalty or a drop goal, meaning that a side can be pushing for a try early on, only to decide to take the three points from a penalty. This market can be an unpredictable one, and backing the correct side to score first is not always easy. 

Highest Scoring Half

This market gives bettors the opportunity to back which half they feel will see the most points. The first weekend of the Premiership usually sees a more cagey first-half, which is then followed by a slightly more open second-half as the trailing side looks to ensure they do not fall to an opening day defeat. Therefore, backing a higher scoring second-half may be intelligent, although rugby is a game that can surprise, with the first-half seeing big scores only for the points to dry up in the second 40.

First Try Converted

Here, the bettor can predict whether the first try of the game will be converted or not. A conversion being nailed first time around is usually the option with shorter odds, but if a team is to score in the corner, then backing the side to not add the extras offers very good value. 

Sending Off In Match 

This market simply allows a bettor to predict whether there will be a sending off in a match. Rugby is a sport of extreme physicality, and often it can boil over, with cheap shots at the bottom of a ruck, late tackles or last second tries sometimes sparking mass brawls, which can then lead to cards being dished out, with the colour of those cards up to the discretion of the referee.
