Exeter Chiefs vs Bath Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Exeter Chiefs welcome Bath to Sandy Park for a 2019/20 Rugby Premiership clash on Saturday. The hosts are top of the table but could struggling to remain there if they lose to Bath.

Exeter Chiefs Form


Exeter Chiefs sit top of the Rugby Premiership table, five points clear of their closest rivals. The Chiefs will be desperate to rectify their 34-30 defeat to the Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop last weekend.

It was a dismal display from the visitors who would have won the game without conceding a late try. At home the Chiefs are a different beast where they have won by more than 12 points in six of their last 12 matches.

Exeter Chiefs News


The Exeter Chiefs are likely to make some changes to their side. Ollie Devoto and Jack Maunder could both come into the backline after Nic While and Phil Dollman produced uninspiring displays last weekend.

Bath Form


Bath have been in decent form which has pushed them up to sixth in the Rugby Premiership table. Last week their season suffered a big blow though as they lost 19-12 to Bristol Bears at the Recreation Ground.

Bath’s recent run of form has coincided with a favourable fixture list as they played teams below them in the table. At home Bath are always a solid bet, even against some of the stronger sides but I feel they’ll struggle at Sandy Park.

Bath News


Bath have no reported injury concerns although they could look at drafting in Nathan Hughes to replace Jordan Crane at eighth-man.

Exeter Chiefs vs Bath Head to Head


Exeter Chiefs have won six of their last seven matches against Bath. Their last encounter in 2019 at Recreation Ground ended in a 10-10 draw which is the only match the Chiefs haven’t won since 2016.

Exeter Chiefs vs Bath Betting Odds


Exeter Chiefs are short priced at 1.16 to win with Bath at 5.00. A draw will pay 34.00. 

Try scorer, HT/FT and winning margin odds will be available closer to the time of kick off.

Exeter Chiefs vs Bath Match Up


It will be a battle of the set piece but the Chiefs should get the better of the visitors. Crucial to Bath’s cause will be the form of South African international Francois Louw.

Louw’s ability on the ground in the rucks is the one area where Bath could dominate, and should the flanker win those penalties on the ground Rhys Priestland can drive the Chiefs to play from within their own territory.
