18-06-2022 Daily Predictions Gallagher Premiership Leicester Tigers vs Saracens

Leicester vs Saracens

The two best teams in the Premiership clash at Twickenham for the final. Both teams have maintained their form and finished the regular season in the top two positions. Saracens in particular have made a remarkable re-entry into the top flight and will again be hoping to continue with their resurgence. The Tigers are seeking their first title in a decade and will not have a better chance than in this match. They will be looking to give star players Ellis Genge and George Ford the perfect sent off as both players will be playing their rugby elsewhere next season.

TIP: The Tigers have had the best forward pack in the competition but they will be severely tested in this match. The two previous matches this season between the teams were decided by less than seven points and this match also promises to be very close. The battle between the two tens, George Ford and Owen Farrell could go a long way to deciding this match. 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 1.47, Playabets 1.50 and Sunbet 1.45


Leicester vs Saracens

  • Saracens have won four of the last five matches between these sides.
  • Saracens won the last match between these sides 34-27.

Latest results for both teams

Leicester beat the Saints 27-14 in their last match while Saracens beat Harlequins 34-17 in their last match.


There are two areas that the Tigers pride themselves on and that is their rolling maul and their scrum. Saracens have at times struggled in the scrums this season but the return of Mako Vunipola seems to have fixed that issue. They will need their maul defence to be on form and are lucky to have Maro Itoje as he is a master at disrupting the opposition’s line out. The backlines of both teams will need to be ready for bombardment of high balls and the Tigers have shown their intent by selecting former Saracen Richard Wigglesworth at nine. He has arguably the best kicking game in the competition. I am predicting a Saracens win by 4 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

The teams that like playing high tempo rugby have been eliminated and it is down to the two teams that enjoy structured set piece rugby that have made the finals. Saracens have the advantage as they have many players in their team who have the experience of playing in the Premiership final before while the Tigers are inexperienced when it comes to finals rugby. Saracens on the outright win offer poor odds therefore I suggest the visitors on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (+6.5) 1.91, Sunbet (+6.5) 1.89 and Playabets (+6.5) 1.81
