RUGBY UNION BETTING: Leicester Tigers have finished top for the regular season with 1 game to go and will be keen to carry their form over into the playoffs, starting on the 16th of May.
Toby Flood helped guide Leicester to a 40-22 victory over Harlequins which assured The Tigers top spot and therefore a home semi final game.
Northampton fans will be slightly concerned at the home loss to Saracens at the weekend as they could very possibly meet again for the semi final game. Saracens are a longer 11/2 with Paddy Power to win the Grand Final but an excellent end of season run in has seen them climb the table to 3rd place. Saracens can be backed at 11/8 to make the Grand Final with Ladbrokes, which seems like a good price considering their momentum.
Bath are in the driving seat for 4th place, the final playoff place. They are 3 points clear of Wasps and host lowly Leeds Carnegie in their final game. Bath are 13/2 with Betfred to win in the Grand Final.
Betting for bottom position is over as Worcester’s loss to Leeds meant Worcester’s 6 year stint in the Premiership is over. They can still finish on level points with Sale but their inferior amount of wins means they will remain bottom whatever the outcome.
