Gloucester narrowly missed out on what would have been a huge haul of winning points at Bristol last weekend.

But they are still within reach of the top four but can’t let these opportunities pass them by.

On Saturday they line up at Kingsholm against bottom side Bath and the Cherry & Whites need to ensure they bank maximum points.

Gloucester Preview – Gloucester need the win

Last weekend Gloucester nearly landed a brilliant away win at Bristol Bears.

After going 14-0 down in the space of about 10 minutes at Ashton Gate, the Cherry & Whites roared back into a winning position.

But they conceded a try two minutes from time to come up short by a single point.

In the match outright for Saturday’s match, Gloucester are big 2/9 odds-on match favourites * (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred).

Back in Round 11, Gloucester claimed a 20-point margin win at the Rec against Bath.

The last time that they managed to complete a double over their derby rival was in the 2011/12 campaign.

Gloucester look to have a good chance of pulling it off on Saturday.

They may be feeling a little bit of pressure, however, as they can’t have these points go begging at Kingsholm.

Gloucester were on a three-match winning streak at home in the league before losing their most recent one there against Wasps.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 11-15 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred)


Home and away combined Gloucester have lost all but one of their last six league matches.

It’s a current three-match losing streak for them, after winning six of the previous seven.

So the going has been a lot tougher as the season gets towards its conclusion.

But all the incentive is with them to come up with a big win.

They could easily have crumbled at Bristol last weekend after getting torn apart in the first 10 minutes.

But Gloucester played expensive stuff to get back in and if they carry that style forward, they can blitz Bath.

A Gloucester -12 handicap in Premiership Rugby betting is at 10/11* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred).


Bath Preview – Bath set for bottom?

Bath have suffered back to back league losses now as they were beaten by Northampton Saints last weekend.

They put up a decent battle at the Rec however, Bath going down 31-16.

But that leaves them winless in six in all competitions (D1 L2).

In the Premiership, it has been a D1 L2 run by them in their last three.

There has been one road victory for Bath this season in the top flight.

That was at Newcastle in Round 18, Bath winning by a five-point margin.

In the match outright for Saturday’s contest at Kingsholm, Bath are 3/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred).

This looks like yet another tough away assignment for them.

Bath have won only one of their last 12 Premiership away matches.

Their last six away defeats in the competition have been by at least 13 points.

So for Premiership Rugby betting on the weekend, it is worth considering a wide margin in the handicap.

Bath are currently bottom of the table with a W 4 D1 L16 season record.

Their record at Kingsholm isn’t that bad at all, winning seven of their last eleven visits.

It would be a massive shock if they added to that tally.


Gloucester vs Bath Betting Advice

Gloucester were unlucky not to get the road win at Bristol last weekend which will have been a deflating loss.

However, while their form has slumped a bit, their last three league defeats have seen Gloucester take a losing bonus point.

So they haven’t been far away. This is a good chance at home for them to put in a confidence-building win to run to the end of the season.

The Gloucester -12 handicap at 10/11 is the first option* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred).


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Bath Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have lost five of their last six league matches
  • Gloucester beat Bath by 20 points earlier this season
  • Bath have a W1 L11 record in their last dozen league away matches


Bath have just not produced the road form to get a serious, sustained challenge in on Saturday away from home.

Eleven defeats in their last twelve road games in the competition says it all.

They aren’t likely to get much change out of the tough-tackling Gloucester and a Gloucester 11-15 winning margin is at 9/2* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Betfred).
