Exeter’s Recent Form


Last Time Out For Exeter

Exeter lead from almost start to finish in their Premiership Rugby semi-final against Sale. Luke Cowan-Dickie’s 6th minute try gave Exeter the lead, and they never looked back from that point. O’Flaherty, Simmonds and Nowell all added to Exeter’s tally before they went in with a 22-13 lead at the break. Johan Janse van Rensburg scored a try for Sale just after the restart, as Sharks showed some life. But, as they cut Exeter’s lead to 5 points, that’s the closest they would get for the rest of the match after another Jack Nowell try, followed by an Alex Cuthbert effort after 67 minutes, put this game to bed relatively early. As we’ve seen all season, Exeter simply have an answer for everything teams throw their way, and it’s no surprise that they are heavy favourites to win the Premiership Rugby Final once again.

Harlequins @ 10/3 To Win

Harlequins Recent Form


Last Time Out For Harlequins

It was an incredible effort by Harlequins in their Premiership Rugby semi-final against Bristol. Bristol held a 28-0 lead after just 29 minutes, and it looked like Harlequins season was as good as over. What followed was a remarkable 70 minutes as Quins’ took complete control. Alex Dombrandt’s 39th minute try seemed to reinvigorate Harlequins heading into the break. Three more tries followed in the first 15 minutes of the second half, and suddenly, the score was 28-24. Callum Sheedy converted a try for Bristol to extend their lead before a 76th minute try by Joe Marchant, and a conversion from Marcus Smith levelled the scores at 31-31. With nothing to separate the sides, we headed to 20 minutes of extra time, where Tyrone Green’s 90th minute try gave Harlequins their first lead of the afternoon, and although Bristol threatened to come back, Quins’ held on for a 43-36 win.

Where’s the Value Bet?

Exeter are understandably the favourites coming into the Premiership Rugby Final. They are the defending champions and have consistently been one of the top Premiership Rugby sides over the last five years. With that being said, we think people are underestimating Harlequins. Quins’ fully deserve to be in this Final and will definitely be aiming to do more than simply show up at Twickenham. Especially as they impressed following a slow start against Bristol, who finished top of the Premiership after the regular season. Quins also troubled Exeter in their most recent match, despite losing 21-20. With that match being a close one, and Quins definitely coming into the game on a high, we’ll be looking at the handicap market for our value bet. Harlequins +11.5 @ 5/6 seems to be the best value in our eyes. For those unfamiliar with handicap betting, this essentially gives Quins’ a 11.5 point head start at the start of the match, meaning Exeter will need to win by 12 or more points in order for this bet to lose. If Exeter win by less than 12, or if Harlequins win, then this bet is a winner.

Harlequins +11.5 @ 5/6

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip

HT/FT - Exeter/Exeter @ 21/50

Although we can’t see this game being a complete blowout, we do think Exeter will dominate the majority of the match. Half time/full time seems a good market to look at, and we’re backing Exeter to lead at both intervals.
