18-11-2023 Daily Predictions Gallagher Premiership Harlequins vs Saracens

Harlequins vs Saracens

In this blockbuster encounter, Harlequins play host to their neighbours Saracens at the Twickenham Stoop. The home side are flying high at the top of the table with 19 points, having won four of their five matches. Saracens are languishing in the unfamiliar sixth position with two losses from their five matches. They are however on an upward trajectory having won their last three matches after the arrival of their England stars. The home side have looked very dangerous and its no coincidence that their attack plays has improved tenfold after the return of Marcus Smith.  

TIP: There are many mouthwatering clashes in this match but the highlight will be the contest between Owen Farrell and Smith. Many people believe that the young man should be the starting ten for England and he will have an opportunity to show his wares against the national team’s captain. Harlequins and Saracens have a adopted a ball in hand approach so we can expect to see plenty of running rugby. The bookies have Saracens as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.63, Gbets 1.63 and Hollywoodbets 1.63


Harlequins vs Saracens

  • Saracens have won three of the last five matches between these sides.
  • The home team have won four of the last five matches between the sides.

Latest results for both teams

Harlequins beat Leicester 29-25 in their last match while Saracens beat Newcastle 50-12 in their last match.


Harlequins have scored spectacular tries this season with Tyrone Green stealing the headlines thanks to brilliant assists from Marcus Smith. Saracens will need to find a way to pressurize the pivot by not giving him space to weave his magic. The youngster can expect to get plenty of attention from the likes of Maro Itoje and Ben Earl who are both super quick out of the defensive line. The visitors will be hoping that Earl can reproduce the form he showed in the World Cup where he was his country’s best player. The experience of the champions will prove the difference therefore I predict a Saracens win by eight points.
