Aviva Premiership: Champion Saints tipped to lead in away acca

| 03.10.2014

The first and third-placed clubs in Rugby Union’s Aviva Premiership clash at the Rec when Bath welcome leaders Saracens, with the hosts currently edging favouritism at 5/6 ahead of the 1/1 visitors.

However, neither of those pill-chucking powerhouses make our weekend accumulator, which will reward lucky punters with odds of over 12/1 if successful.

Northampton -6 to beat London Irish @ 10/11

The defending champions have cleared this handicap in three of their four Aviva Premiership fixtures in 2014/15, with a 20-16 loss at Wasps the only blot on George North and co’s copy book thus far.

Against a side who have lost both of their home matches this term, back a Saints cruise at the Madejski.

London Welsh +26 to beat Harlequins @ 10/11

The Oxford-based exiles may have lost all four of their matches since promotion to the top tier by at least this margin, but Justin Burnell’s boys are taking on a Quins outfit who have thrown up a couple of shockers in the Premiership’s early exchanges.

Narrow defeats of London Irish and Wasps were offset by a 39-0 pasting at home to Saracens and a 36-13 humbling at Exeter last time out.

In such circumstances, get behind London Welsh staying in touch at Twickenham Stoop.

Leicester -1 to beat Gloucester @ 10/11

Following the Tigers’ shocking recent losses, by 45-0 away to great rivals Bath and 22-19 when hosting London Irish, now looks the right time to back Richard Cockerill’s bruisers at a decent price.

Gloucester are no great shakes and took an even worse pounding than Leicester did against Bath in their opening-weekend clash with Northampton, going down 53-6, so a handicap wager on the 2013 champions makes a lot of sense.

Exeter-7 to beat Newcastle @ 10/11

The Chiefs have won three of their four fixtures so far in the campaign, while Newcastle are yet to avoid defeat.

Why Rob Baxter’s boys have been tasked with such a meagre molehill to overcome at Kingston Park is a mystery. Punt accordingly.
