Exeter Chiefs odds-on to win Gallagher Premiership

| 19.08.2020

Chiefs eight points clear at the top

After the resumption of Rugby Union in the Gallagher Premiership last weekend, Exeter Chiefs are the odds-on 4/5 favourites to secure this season’s title.

The Chiefs romped to a 26-13 victory over Leicester Tigers in their return to action, after a five month lay-off thanks to three tries from Dave Ewers, Stuart Hogg and Luke Cowan-Dickie, before a penalty try sealed their victory.

Exeter are currently eight points clear of Bristol Bears in second, who returned to action with a narrow 16-12 win over Saracens. The Bears are third favourites at 5/1 to win the Premiership.

Sale Sharks lost ground to the leaders after a shock 16-10 defeat to Harlequins but remain second favourites at 7/2 for the title.

Elsewhere, you can find 10/1 on Northampton Saints, with Wasps a 16/1 longshot.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Professional rugby is back in England at last, after an extended break, and the season will race through to a conclusion now. Exeter will take the world of beating and they are odds-on to avenge last year’s final defeat and take the title this year.”
