English Rugby Premiership Odds: The Odds Manager Guide to the 2020-21 Season

There’s been a real Chiefs and Saracens love-in at the top of the Premiership tree over the last six years.

We haven’t seen a winner outside of those two since 2014, but with Saracens out of the picture, the onus is on Exeter to keep that run alive!

There is some fierce competition for the Premiership crown this season, but can the Bears or Sharks bite hard enough? Or will it be down to Wasps to provide the killer sting?

With the shortest pre-season in the history of the competition, will the 2020-21 season throw up as many surprises as we are seeing across other sports?

At Odds Manager we’ll bring you the best of the action from the English Rugby Premiership, with the best previews and odds available.

Why Bet On The English Rugby Premiership?

With the addition of the play-offs at the end of an English Rugby Premiership season, as a punter, you’ve got a real opportunity to grab more bang for your buck in the markets. 

A side that walks the regular season may come unstuck over the semi-finals or final, with form and momentum proving vital in the post-season format.

This season should also throw up as many shocks as we are used to seeing in the competition. Teams have had less time to prepare and may be caught cold by unexpected underdogs. 

We’ve already seen every side pick up a victory early on in the season and there is a real race on in an attempt to dethrone the favourites, Exeter Chiefs. 

So keep your eyes peeled for the value bets and take advantage of the hundreds of markets on offer!

Top Teams In The English Rugby Premiership?

The previous six Premiership titles have been shared between two sides: Saracens (4) and Exeter (2). Leicester have the most Premiership wins with 10, but have not had their hands on the trophy since 2013. Bath and Wasps both have six titles each, with Saracens on five.

Which sides are fancied in the 2020-21 campaign?

  • Exeter Chiefs The Chiefs won only their second Premiership title last season but are enjoying a real purple patch of form. Rob Baxter guided his side to 15 wins in 22 matches last season, as well as comprehensive wins over Bath and Wasps in the play-offs.
  • Bristol Bears – The Bears lost out to Wasps in last year’s semi-finals but enjoyed a successful season finishing just five points shy of the eventual champions. 
  • Sale Sharks – Sale had the best defence in the league last season by some distance, but it wasn’t enough to see them finish in the top four. The club from Greater Manchester finished fifth but have carried their solid form into the new campaign. 
  • Wasps – Wasps were last season’s runners-up and were the top scorers in the league. The side based in Coventry were beaten in the play-off final despite a try from Jacob Umaga.

What Happened Last Season?

Last season was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following the shutdown of sport across the United Kingdom, March 16, 2020 saw the suspension of the Rugby Premiership, initially for a five week period. 

This suspension was extended until August 14, 2020, when the league restarted behind closed doors.

Exeter Chiefs were the stand-out team last season, winning the regular season as well as the play-off final.

They lost just seven matches of their 24 contested, with Jonny Hill and Sam Simmonds leading the way with 10 tries each.

Sam Simmonds’ brother, Joe Simmonds, was the leading points scorer for Exeter with 143 across the season, only beaten by Jimmy Gopperth of Wasps (165), Callum Sheedy of Bristol (181), Marcus Smith of Harlequins (198), and Rhys Priestland of Bath (206). 

Saracens faced relegation having finished the season bottom on -38 points despite winning 13 matches.

The Greater London club were docked 105 points throughout the season for repeated breaching of salary cap regulations.
