Saracens vs Edinburgh

Saracens will be hoping to make their return to the Champions Cup, a winning one when they entertain Edinburgh. They will want nothing less than a bonus point victory to open their account. The last time these sides met, Edinburgh shocked Sarries 21-18 and no doubt that memory will be fresh in the mind on the home players. Saracens have been in excellent form in the Premiership and will be hoping to continue with that form in this competitions. Edinburgh will be looking to bounce back after suffering a humbling 38-21 home defeat to Munster in their last match.

TIP: Edinburgh on paper have an excellent team that can beat any top side on their day but they have flattered to deceive especially away from home. Saracens will be looking to take advantage of the visitor’s dreadful record on the road and will want t put them under pressure from the start. The home team have selected their strongest team which is bad news for Edinburgh. The bookies have Saracens as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.08, Playabets 1.07 and Sunbet 1.08

Latest results for both teams

Saracens beat Northampton Saints 45-39 in their last match while Edinburgh lost 38-17 to Munster in their last match.


England star Owen Farrell is back in the number 10 jersey and will be keen to show the national selectors that this is his favoured spot with a dominant display. Saracens look to have the advantage in the forwards although the visitors do have some fantastic players in their pack with the likes of internationals Viliame Mata, Luke Crosbie and Jamie Ritchie. There is a titanic battle expected at scrum time with Mako Vunipola showing signs of regaining his best form just in time for the Six Nations. The visitors love to run the ball so we could expect an open match but they need to be aware that any errors will present the home team with gift tries. We are backing Saracens to win by 20 points.
