RUGBY UNION BETTING: Leicester Tigers have been shortened to 8/11 by SkyBet for the regular season title after a confident away win over Worcester at the weekend.
Northampton continue to apply pressure to Leicester’s credentials and still only remain 2 points behind. Totesport offer 7/4 about Northampton overhauling the deficit, which, bearing in mind they have a game in hand also, seems like a decent price.
The huge gap to 3rd favs London Irish at 20/1 (SkyBet) would indicate the bookies are settled in for a two horse race.
Sale’s awful 38-0 defeat at London Irish did nothing to boost their confidence, only taking solace in the fact that fellow strugglers Leeds Carnegie also failed to register at Gloucester, losing 19-0. Ladbrokes will offer 15/8 on Leeds to finish last whilst Totesport are very confident Sale will avoid the wooden spoon and are offering 16/1.
Current bottom team Worcester are favs with Ladbrokes to finish bottom, at 13/8, however they are getting points on the board and conceding less than fellow basement teams.
