RUGBY UNION BETTING: Leicester Tigers have have been shortened to 2/9 with Boylesports to win the Guinness Premiership after beating Newcastle Falcons on Sunday.
The Tigers recorded a 31-7 away win at Newcastle, which also entitled them to the bonus point. Northampton kept the pressure on by beating Gloucester 38-23 on the Saturday but Leicester responded to regain top spot. Northampton can be backed at 4/1 for the regular season with Paddy Power and the bookies have written off Saracens with 2 games to go.
A slightly better value bet might be the 4/11 Ladbrokes are offering about The Tigers reaching the Grand Final, without even winning it. Coral offer 5/4 on them winning that particular final. Saracens, back in 3rd, are 8/1 with Betfred for a Grand Final victory after a comfortable win over Harlequins firmly ensconced them in 3rd position in the league.
At the bottom, Worcester continue to struggle with another loss but they picked up 1 bonus point as they ran Wasps close, losing by 4 points. Only Betfair are running a market on last place and they have 4/1 on Sale to finish last. Another loss for Sale means they are only 5 clear of Worcester with 2 games to go, but it’s difficult to see where Worcester will get points.
