Saracens 6/4 to win the Premiership after thrashing rivals Harlequins

After running riot against Harlequins at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we have priced up Saracens as the 6/4 favourites to win the Gallagher Premiership Grand Final.

Sarries were in imperious form against their rivals as they won 52-7 to move up to second in the table and just three points behind leaders Northampton Saints.

A brace from Sean Maitland and tries from Alex Lewington and Theo Dan gave Saracens a 24-0 lead at the interval, as Harlequins struggled to come to terms with the pace and power of their opposition.

Dan grabbed his second try after the break and while Alex Dombrandt got Quins on the board, Lucio Cinti, Juan Martin Gonzalez and Alex Goode were also on the scoresheet to complete a dominant eight-try victory.

It was a fitting performance on Owen Farrell's 250th appearance for the club, while the result means that Harlequins have slipped to fifth in the Premiership table.

Saracens Premiership Rugby odds

(Odds will display when the market is available)

Saracens endured an indifferent run of form either side of the new year as they suffered Premiership defeats to Northampton, Sale and Leicester, as well as a humiliating 55-15 Champions Cup defeat in Bordeaux.

But the reigning Premiership champions appear to have hit their stride in recent weeks after beating Lyon to secure their place in the Last 16 of European Rugby's premier competition, before back-to-back Premiership wins against Exeter and now Harlequins.

They now have added confidence to fight for silverware on both fronts and Sarries look well placed to challenge for their sixth domestic title in 10 years.
