Premiership Rugby Betting Odds – 17-11-18 Tips

Gloucester v Leicester – Gloucester -12 Points

After a fairly disappointing season by their own standards, Gloucester have made a decent start to their new Premiership campaign. Two defeats from six games is still two too many for their head coach, Johan Ackermann. He’ll be demanding that his players go on a prolonged run of winning form to challenge the top teams in the Premiership table, starting with a convincing victory over Leicester. Our odds comparison shows that the bookies don’t believe Leicester will be able to improve their 50/50 record this season at Kingsholm but rather than backing the home side to win, back them with a 12 point handicap at betting odds of 10/11.

Northampton v Wasps – Wasps to Win

Northampton got the better of Wasps by just a single point when the two teams met in the Premiership Rugby Cup and if the rugby betting odds are anything to go by it’s going to be just as close this time around. Whilst third placed Wasps have a lot of ground to make up on the top two – Exeter and Saracens – they are at least in the reckoning. Northampton have just two wins to show for their efforts in their opening six matches so confidence isn’t exactly sky high. Wasps may be the underdogs but they are playing better than Northampton at the moment and can exact revenge for that recent defeat at best betting odds of 6/5.


The English Premiership is the top division for English rugby union sides and is often known by its sponsorship title, the Aviva Premiership. The season runs from September to May and there are 22 rounds of matches with each of the 12 sides playing the other 11 twice, home and away. It is an exciting and fun sport on which to bet, and if you use our rugby betting odds comparison service, it could be a profitable one too!

Whether you want to bet on the individual matches – which usually take place at weekends – or on which team will be crowned Premiership Champions, we’ll have all the best betting odds right here so you’ll never have to settle for second best again.

The format of the league is similar to those found in football, but teams are awarded four points for a win, two points for a draw and none for a defeat, though losing teams earn a bonus point if the margin of defeat is of seven points or fewer. Teams – whether they win, lose or draw – can also earn a bonus point for scoring four tries or more in a match.

At the end of the season, the top four teams in the table compete in the play-offs, held throughout May, with the Grand Final being played at Twickenham at the end of May. The mighty Saracens have been proving they are the best side in England recently (they topped the Premiership table in the 2014 season by 11 points from Northampton), though other teams such as Leicester and Harlequins also often compete. Whoever you back though, be sure to check our odds comparison first to get the best value.
