Bristol Bears came up just a little short on a valiant opening effort at Wasps last weekend at the Ricoh Arena.

Will they be able to get off the mark on Saturday as they host Wrocester?

The Warriors managed to grind out a tense home victory over London Irish last weekend.

Bristol Bears Preview – Bears favourites at Ashton Gate

The Bears lost by just a three-point margin away at Wasps in a heavyweight clash last weekend in the Premiership.

That was two of last season’s top-four teams going head to head.

The Bears will be expected to take a win in this one as they produced such a fine season at Ashton Gate last term.

Bristol won eight (D1 L2) of their eleven home fixtures in the previous campaign.

In their home fixture against Worcester, they took a 13-10 victory early in the season.

In the rugby betting gmatch outright Bristol are the 4/9 odds-on favourites for the win* .(odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November)

They will have reasons to be confident after their 2-0 points scored against the much stronger Wasps side last weekend, away from home.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol 1-12 winning margin

Next for our rugby betting preview we take a look at the head to head. It’s the Bears who have just started to turn things in their favour.

It was back to back wins that Bristol took against the Warriors last season. That ended a three-match losing streak that they had been on against Worcester.

So the tide looks to be turning in that respect.

A Bristol -6 handicap line is at 10/11 for this game*(odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

That sounds about right as their win at Worcester last season by 23 points, was a clear anomaly in the recent head to head meetings.


Worcester Preview – Warriors may come up short

In their opening game of the season, Worcester hosted London Irish at Sixways.

After things were level at 3-3 at the halftime break, it was the Warriors who just managed to get over the finish line for the win by an 11-10 scoreline.

That was a tough, tense squeeze and this is a much tougher fixture for them.

In the match outright a Worcester win option is at 15/8* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

So they clearly have some underdog odds to shrug off and their lack of scoring against the weaker London Irish last weekend doesn’t really bode well for them on the weekend.

First we will take a look at the away form of Worcester from last season.

It was only two victories that the Warriors managed to make on the road, those were against London Irish and Harlequins.

Only in one of their road fixtures from the 2019/20 campaign did Worcester manage to score more than 19 points in a game.

Worcester are actually on a three-match winning streak in the league now (not counting their defaulted win at the end of last season).

The last time that the Warriors managed to win four on the spin was back in March 2016.

Incidentally they have never lost three in a row against Bristol either.

But it is really questionable as to whether or not they have the attacking power to bring down the Bears at Ashton Gate.


Bristol Bears vs Worcester Betting Advice

Bristol have lost just one game at Ashton Gate in the 2020 calendar year and that was a narrow 3-point reverse against Exeter.

The Bears look very good value for the win in this one and we would go with a Bears -6 handicap at 10/11 for that* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

We think that they can easily cover that.


Key Facts – Bristol Bears vs Worcester Betting Tip

  • Bristol Bears have won the last two games against the Warriors
  • Bristol Bears narrowly lost at Wasps last weekend
  • Worcester only won 2 away games in the last campaign


Worcester’s 1-point margin over the much weaker London Irish last weekend paints a picture of their lack of threat in this fixture.

They may well fall to that first ever three match losing streak against the Bears.

A Bristol 1-12 winning margin looks a nice option at 6/4 for rugby betting* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November)
