Leicester Tigers vs Wasps Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Welford Road Stadium plays host as Leicester Tigers face off against Wasps in the English Rugby Premiership. Wasps have the edge in my book with five international players missing from Leicester’s ranks. An against the odds victory is on for Wasps.

Leicester Tigers Form


Leicester Tigers lost their last Rugby Premiership match to Bath 13-10 at the Recreation Ground. Currently only Saracens who have -77 points sit below the Tigers on the Rugby Premiership table.

Despite having a number of England internationals, the Tigers have struggled this season but will need to find some form or relegation will loom large. I expect a very tightly fought encounter against Wasps but the visitors get the edge due to the number of players missing from Leicester’s ranks.

Leicester Tigers News


Ellis Genge, George Ford, Jonny May, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs are all experienced players missing for Leicester’s ranks this week due to them being with England.

Wasps Form 


Wasps have found some form recently in winning two of their last three matches. Both victories came away from home with their last victim being Worcester as it ended 30-26 at Sixways Stadium.

Wasps are slightly higher on the Rugby Premiership table but their season has not been plain sailing. Director of Rugby Dai Young looks set to move on so big changes are expected in the coming weeks at Wasps.

Leicester Tigers are missing a number of players due to international duty and form is on the side of Wasps. I’m backing Wasps to get the outright win at 2.30.

Wasps News


Jacob Umaga and Joe Launchbury are on international duty but Umaga may return for the match if England feel it is beneficial to him.

Leicester Tigers vs Wasps Head to Head


Wasps have won five of the last seven matches against Leicester Tigers but it is Leicester who won their last encounter. It ended 19-13 to Leicester Tigers at Welford Road Stadium in 2019.

Leicester Tigers vs Wasps Betting Odds


Leicester Tigers are favourites at 1.66 to win while Wasps are valued at 2.30. A draw is priced at 21.00.

The handicap is set at a mere two points with the Tigers paying 1.83 and Wasps 2.00. In the HT/FT market Leicester Tigers can be backed at 2.20 while Wasps are paying 3.00.

Leicester Tigers vs Wasps Match Up


Leicester Tigers and Wasps will both attempt to dominate among the forwards before venturing into the wider channels to look for space. It should be a tightly contested affair with both of them struggling at the bottom end of the table.

An exciting encounter this is unlikely to be but the loss of flair players to England’s national side could cost the Tigers dearly.
