Bristol Bears continue winning streak

It is a four-match winning streak that the Bears are currently on in the Premiership. They were engaged in a big duel with west country rivals Bath at the Rec last weekend.

The Bears ran out to a 12-6 half time lead and ended up holding that six-point margin for a 19-13 success. There is a trend worth noting for the Bristol Bears v Worcester Warriors rugby betting.

Each of the last three wins Bristol have taken in the league have been by a margin of no more than six points. It has been back to back home wins in the league for them, victories over Gloucester and Worcester.

They would set a new club record of five straight league wins if they could collect a victory in this fixture.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol 8-14 Winning Margin

(odds taken 2125 GMT, Thursday 6th March)

The home form of Bristol is superb. They have suffered just one loss at Ashton Gate since the end of March last year.

So Ashton Gate is no easy place for any team to go. This looks to be a good time for them to be hosting the out-of-sorts Quins as well.


Harlequins may hit more road struggles

Harlequins have only taken two wins in their last six Premiership fixtures. Those were both two home victories as well against Saracens and Exeter. So they have raised their game against some big opposition.

However, it leaves them with only one road victory in the Premier League in the last twelve months.

The Quins are starting round 13 of the season three points outside of the top four and that road form may let them down again on the weekend.

Heading back into action, Harlequins hold the second-worst defensive record in the top flight. So that is a huge problem for them on their trip to Bristol. Losing at one of the teams above them in the table, world series knock their top-four ambitions back.
