Bristol Bears collected a narrow win last weekend at Worcester to stay steady at the top of the Premiership.

They return to home soil this weekend as they face up to Wasps who haven’t been having such a good time.

A home defeat against Gloucester last weekend left the London club on a three-match losing streak.

Bristol Bears Preview – Bears can claim the home win

Bristol found themselves in a tight encounter at Sixways against Worcester last weekend.

It was a 24-23 away win that the Bears took in the game, which was expected to be a lot more comfortable for them.

But that made it back to back league wins for them and a four-match unbeaten streak of form in the top flight.

In the Premiership this season, Bristol have missed out on victory in just one of their home games.

That was against Sale sharks and it leaves Bristol on a W5 L1 record this season at Ashton Gate.

The league leaders are the 1/5 odds on favourites in the outright market for rugby betting* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

Of the five home wins that they have taken, four of them have been by a margin of at least 12 points.

So they are capable of putting up wide-margin wins.

Earlier this season when Bristol paid a visit to Wasps, they came away with a 23-20 defeat.

Back on home soil, a Bristol -10 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

An interesting factor for Premiership rugby betting going into this fixture is the leak of form by Bristol in the head to head.

Our betting prediction:
Bears 8-14 winning margin

Bet at Paddy Power

(odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March)


Bristol have lost their last eleven Premiership fixtures against Wasps which is a staggering run of form.

The last time that the Bears did get against the London clubs was at the Memorial Stadium back in 2006.

It has been three times that Brazil have hosted Wasps in the league at Ashton Gate and they have lost all three.

So that is fascinating.

But they are averaging around 25 points per game and sit on a powerful W9 D1 L2 record at the top of the league.

They will take some stopping and in fact look to have a good chance of stopping the rot against Wasps.


Wasps Preview – Can Wasps maintain a winning streak against Bristol?

Wasps suffered another blow last weekend as they were beaten on one soil for the second weekend running.

It was the struggling Gloucester who paid a visit last weekend and earned a 20-19 victory over them.

That’s a three-match losing streak that Wasps are on in the top flight and the points are not flowing from them.

In none of their last five Premiership matches have Wasps managed to put at least 20 points on the board.

That has been a recent drop off in terms of output as they are averaging 25 points per game across their five road fixtures this season.

But just at the moment, their current form suggests that they are likely to come up short in the scoring department against a strong Bristol team away from home.

The quote in the match outright for the away win is 7/2* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

We do have to take into consideration the current slump in form of Wasps as well, who are W5 L7 from their twelve games played this season.

After the last round of action, they were one of only two teams in the Premiership to have conceded more than 300 points this season.

From their five away games in this campaign, Wasps have earned a W3 L2 record.

Two of those three away wins have happened against Bath and Worcester who are currently in the bottom three.

Wasps then are with only one victory in their last six league games, with that lone win happening at Worcester in round 9.

They are underdogs here and the Wasps +10 is at the even money mark* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

The last time that they were out on the road Wasps lost against Leicester. But they haven’t lost back to back away games in the top flight since December 2019.

Their head to head is good against Bristol, their away form suggests that they can avoid defeat but this is such a difficult game for them.


Bristol Bears vs Wasps Betting Advice

The Bears have to be favoured in this one as they are having a strong season, and we think that they walk this to some degree.

The Bears -10 handicap at 10/11 looks to be the way to way* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

That follows the trend of four of their five home wins being by a margin of 12 points or more.
