Again, home advantage will probably prove critical in this relatively balanced semi-final clash between Leicester and Northampton.
It’s now five wins from six Premiership outings for Leicester, although they have suffered defeats in the cup and in Europe in that time so momentum isn’t all there.
However, they’ve been imperious on home soil winning all 12 league outings this season, with those results coming by an average margin of 15 points.
The Saints come into this in some form too, winning eight of their last nine games and even that was just a four-point defeat to Saracens which can be forgiven.
A W6-L6 away record doesn’t set the pulses racing though, and the fact that Leicester have done the double over this year does come into the equation.
Northampton +12 Handicap
With that said, Northampton have been prolific in recent weeks, scoring 30+ points in each of their last six outings and while Leicester are fully deserving of their favourites status, Northampton seem underestimated at 12 points on the handicap as they’ve covered that line in each of their last 12 outings.
It’s true that the last time it happened was in this away at Leicester themselves, though the Saints are very much on the up and we’re happy to get behind them to cover the handicap at least.
