It has been a miserable season for Gloucester in the Premiership and they are facing a road game on Friday night.

The Cherry & Whites head off to the Rec to face Bath.

Bath haven’t been having the greatest of seasons either in the top flight but should be buoyed after ending a losing streak last weekend.

Bath Preview – Bath to make it back to back wins?

Bath got themselves a much-needed success last weekend as they toppled Sale away from home at 27-22.

That was their first win of the calendar year.

That ended a miserable losing run that they have been on and moved the West Country club on to a W3 L9 record for the season.

There may be more points on offer for them on Friday night as they play host to one of the two sides currently beneath them in the table.

In the match outright for Bath v Gloucester rugby betting, the home win is at 2/5 odds-on* (odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February).

The last time that Bath won at home in any competition was when Gloucester visited in Round 21 of last season’s campaign.

Bath and Gloucester traded home wins in last season’s top flight.

So far at home this season in the league, Bath have suffered losses against Newcastle, Harlequins and London Wasps.

Our betting prediction:
Bath 1-7 HT Winning Margin

Bet at Coral

(odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February)


No team has conceded more points that Bath this season and that will be the one concern over their chances in this one.

We do expect this to be a tight game as even though Gloucester have been losing matches, they have not been by huge gulfs.

A Bath -5 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February).

Bath have tallied 19 tries this season compared to the 24 produced by Gloucester (although the Cherry & Whites have completed one extra match).

But now Bath’s 2021 winless streak has been broken, can they push on and make the most of this golden opportunity on Friday night?


Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites continue to struggle

The season continues to get worse for Gloucester who have claimed just one league win this season.

That was back in Round 2 at home against Wasps.

Heading into Friday night’s showdown at the Rec, Gloucester are the 2/1 underdogs* (odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February).

So can they snap out of this long seven-match losing streak in the Premiership?

In each of their last three defeats, which happened against Northampton, London Irish and Bristol Bears, the Cherry & Whites did pick up a losing bonus point.

Last weekend they came agonisingly close to pulling off a major upset at Kingsholm as they lost 17-18 against the in-form Bristol Bears.

This is Gloucester’s fifth away match of this league campaign.

Three of those four road defeats that they have struggled through have been by margins of more than seven points.

The Gloucester +6 in the handicap for rugby betting can be snapped up at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February).

The most recent win that Gloucester claimed at the Rec was back in October 2017.

They have been a little more productive in attack this season than Bath have been, but have been wholeheartedly unreliable at the back.

This then on Friday night is a clash between two teams who are really struggling badly to find form.

It does make for an intriguing battle between two of the bottom three. Who gets those precious points?


Bath vs Gloucester Betting Advice

The home advantage for Bath may just about swing this in their favour. That plus a bit of confidence gained from last weekend’s victory.

Bath had gone to Sale as heavy underdogs last weekend but came up with the goods.

We think that the home win is on the cards here, but by a narrow margin.

Therefore a Bath 1-7 winning margin is at 5/2* (odds taken 23:03 GMT Wednesday, 17th February).


Key Facts – Bath vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Bath won their first game of 2021 last weekend in beating Sale
  • Bath and Gloucester traded home wins last season
  • Gloucester have lost their last seven Premiership games


We can look back at last season when the two clubs traded home wins and when both were in better shape than what they currently are.

Gloucester are slightly better off in terms of average points per match and in points against.

But there have been some big failures on the road already and Bath should take it.
