Exeter Chiefs have been enjoying a tremendous season thus far and they have made pole position in the Premiership very much their own for most of the campaign. Eight points currently separate them from second-placed Saracens thanks to some outstanding performances which have steered them to 13 wins from their 16 outings. Fourteen bonus points have also come their way and they will be only too aware that the Premiership title is theirs to lose.
Exeter have been equally impressive both in front of their home fans and on their travels, however home comforts will almost certainly work very much in their favour when they entertain Bath on Sunday afternoon, the leading bookmakers giving away free bets on this eagerly awaited clash.
Bath sit slap-bang in the middle of the Premiership table in sixth position, 39 points being collected from their 16 matches, just seven short of the play-off berths. They have collected seven bonus points along the way although while the visitors will be desperate to grab themselves a win this weekend, we’re far from confident about their chances of actually doing so.
This will likely be a closely-fought affair but the form of the home side cannot be ignored. Bath will look to make life difficult for Exeter but we’ll be siding with the home side to grab another handsome victory as they close-in on the Premiership title, Paddy Power Bookmakers going 10/11 on Exeter -11 on Handicap Market.
