Exeter are on a six-match winning streak at the moment in the Premiership and have a huge advantage at the top of the table.

They will welcome Gloucester to Sandy Park for this midweek fixture, and the Cherry & Whites have picked up wins in their last two.

The matches are coming thick and fast and it will be interesting to see if Exeter keep up their strong charge or dial things back a bit.

Exeter Preview – Will Chiefs make it seven on the spin?

Exeter are just running away with things at the moment, having been untouchable since the season has restarted.

The Chiefs have squeezed out a couple of results in their winning streak, like their 25-22 away win at Bristol and then last weekend when they won at Northampton 22-19.

But those were big away tests for the league leaders and they have passed them.

The bookies are expecting nothing other than a relentless performance from the Chiefs as an Exeter -29 handicap is at 5/6* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).

The last time that Exeter lost at Sandy Park in the league was in January when they went down to Sale.

Earlier in this campaign, Exeter went to Kingsholm and produced a 26-15 victory and so they will be looking to achieve the first season-double over Gloucester.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 11-20 Winning Margin

(odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September)


But Exeter should be in good shape for this one as they have lost just one home game against Gloucester in all competitions since January 2015.

The Chiefs are the top-scoring side in the Premiership at the moment, by a long distance and they are averaging almost 31 points per game.

They currently boast the second-best defensive record in the division as well right now.

In the overall head to head Exeter are W12 D1 L11 against Gloucester and four of the last five meetings between these two have gone the way of the home side on the day.


Gloucester Preview – Big ask of Gloucester at Sandy park

Back to back wins at Kingsholm over Leicester and London Irish, two teams badly out of form, have given Glocuestser a lift.

But it really does nothing for their ability to bring down the league leaders as Irish and Leicester are 9th and 11th in the league respectively.

The winds have moved Gloucester on to a W7 L11 record for the season, but they remain a long way outside of the top four.

On the weekend it was a 36-23 home success over London Irish that Gloucester took and two of their last three wins in the Premiership have been at home.

The last time that Gloucester won three league fixtures in a row was in April 2019 and with them carrying poor away form, they are 16/1 underdogs* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).

Gloucester have scored at least 20 points in each of their last five league games and in four of their last five have bagged at least 30.

So they have been scoring points and they are the top-scoring team outside of the top four (with the exception of Saracens).

However, they have been absolutely hammered on their last two visits to Sandy Park in the Premiership, taking 46-10 and 23-6 defeats in those.

Exeter are pretty much home and dry and surely a +29 handicap on Gloucester is a more feasible option* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September).


Exeter vs Gloucester Betting Advice

We expect a home win in this one, even if Exeter decides to shuffle some personnel because of the heavy, heavy workload this month.

That would make sense at home. They are cruising at the moment and confident and even in tight games, the Chiefs are still pulling out the victories.

The Exeter 11-20 winning margin range is a good fit for us at 19/5* (odds taken 23:10 GMT, Tuesday, 8th September) as we have to take the quick turnaround in matches into the picture.


Key Facts – Exeter vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Exeter have won their last six league matches
  • Exeter have won four of their last five against Gloucester
  • Gloucester have taken a win in their last two league games


Gloucester don’t have the form at Sandy Park to suggest that they can go and get a win against the leaders.

But they may be able to come up with something of a respectable performance to stay within a reasonable margin of the Chiefs.
