Just checking out the odds fpr the upcoming season and was interested on peoples thoughts. These aren't odds for final positions, but more for chances of taking home the title:

1. Saracens 7/4
2. Exeter 5/2
3. Wasps 15/2
4. Leicester 12/1
5. Gloucester 16/1
6. Bath 28/1
7. Newcastle 40/1
8. Northampton 79/2
9. Sale 79/1
10. Harlequins 80/1
11. Bristol 250/1
12. Worcester 500/1


I think 40/1 for ourselves is a fair price, perhaps a little generous after last seasons glory. I do think top 6 is the aim again, but we may suffer a little competing on 2 fronts.

I'm not sure I see Leicester as a 12/1 punt, I'd fancy Gloucester before them and Worcester are oddly right out of it with 500/1 (But Bristol 250/1???).

Odds aside, do we think this will be close to the finished table?

I think Sale generously priced at 79-1 with their recruitment and James O’Connor finally back after injury I expect them to surprise a lot of people and be fighting for a top 4 position.

Surely we should be below Saints on that (who have recruited very well)

New manager and a fair few new players after being dismal last season, I'm not so sure Steve.

Well we should be as 40/1 is longer odds than 79-2

For Saints it will probably depend on how quickly everyone including the new manager get settled in and blend together, which could take a while, but if they hit the ground running then they'll be strong I'm sure. 40/1 is probably a fair price for us, we've lost a lot of experience and have to prove that last year wasn't a fluke.

I think Northampton are high in the same way Sale and Worcester are low.

If Leicester had a new coach I would think 12 /1 was very good odds. With their current coaching setup it's probably about right - fighting for 4th with Glaws.

The bookies are usually pretty accurate, with the exception of Leicester City's football win!
