European Rugby Champions Cup Odds: Jeremy Guscott Says Double Contenders Saracens ‘On Brink of Greatness’

Former England star Jeremy Guscott believes Aviva Premiership and European Rugby Champions Cup contenders Saracens are “on the bring of greatness” as they look to complete a trophy double to end their 2016-17 campaign.

Head coach Mark McCall’s men will face Clermont Auvergne in the final of this season’s Champions Cup on Saturday, where they have been installed as heavy 1/2 (1.50) favourites to clinch a second successive continental title.

Meanwhile, Sarries are also priced as favourites to beat Premiership play-off semi-final opponents Exeter Chiefs and are 7/5 (2.40) frontrunners to go on and win the Grand Final, where they could meet either Wasps or Leicester Tigers.

Those fancying the English titans to complete a historic double can back Saracens at 39/25 (2.56) to replicate last season’s feat and win both trophies, establishing a dynasty as one of the greatest club teams to have graced European rugby as a result.

Guscott said: “Mark McCall’s team are three wins away from a quite astonishing feat.Victory against Clermont, combined with beating Exeter and then either Leicester or Wasps in the Premiership final, would add up to a double-double.”
