Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Struggling Harlequins host top-of-the-table Exeter Chiefs in the 2019/20 Rugby Premiership at Twickenham Stoop. The Chiefs are in great form after a huge win last weekend and are tipped in the handicap market.

Harlequins Form


Harlequins have impressed on occasion this season but their consistency has been horrendous. Ninth on the Rugby Premiership table belies their true potential as a side but they have been disappointing, especially at home.,

Harlequins suffered a 19-12 defeat to Bath at the Recreation Ground last weekend, but more concerning will be their home 29-15 loss to London Irish the week prior at Twickenham Stoop.

The hosts form doesn’t point towards an upset with the Exeter Chiefs in seemingly rampant mood in search of the Rugby Premiership title.

Harlequins News


The Harlequins should be at full strength for this encounter with scrum-half Danny Care and fly-half Marcus Smith pivotal.

Exeter Chiefs Form


Exeter Chiefs are flying this season and sit top of the English Rugby Premiership. With Saracens docked points and out of the mix they look certain to claim the title. With 10 of their last 13 matches ending in victory by 7+ points it is hard to argue against them.

Last week the Exeter Chiefs defeated Northampton Saints 57-7 at Sandy Park. The Chiefs have dominated every side in the Rugby Premiership this season and I don’t see this encounter being any different. 

Despite losing players to international duty the Exeter Chiefs are well covered. The value for this match is in the handicap market with the Chiefs priced at 1.90 to cover -6 points.

Exeter Chiefs News


Exeter Chiefs have reported no injuries but we may see a couple of changes. Don Armand was impressive off the bench and could come in for Harry Williams.

Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Head to Head


Exeter Chiefs have won three of their last five matches against Harlequins including the last two. Their last match ended 17-15 at Sandy Park in April 2019.

Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Odds


Harlequins are underdogs at 2.87 with Exeter Chiefs short priced at 1.44. A draw will pay 21.00. The handicap market is set at 6 points and will pay 1.90 both ways.

Harlequins vs Exeter Chiefs Match Up


Exeter Chiefs are dominating the Rugby Premiership for one reason – they have the best forward pack in the competition. The only way to get around that is to make very few errors and not hand the Chiefs field position through penalties.

Sale Sharks managed this a couple of weeks back but very few have successfully implemented it. Danny Care will be crucial for the Harlequins as his tactical kicking game will have to be on point, or the Quins could be in for a long afternoon.
