In an unexpected turn of events, the form team out of these two is Gloucester who are now undefeated in four Premiership matches.

Can they pull off an upset at Kingsholm on Friday night against the Chiefs to extend this positive run of form?

Exeter will be in wounded-beast mode after getting humbled in their own backyard by London Irish last weekend.

Gloucester Preview – Can Cherry & Whites beat the Chiefs?

A good solid 29-20 home win over Newcastle Falcons was what Gloucester Rugby picked up last weekend in Premiership action.

That leaves the Cherry & Whites with a good W3 D1 record in their last four.

After having had a slow start to the season, this has been such a big lift for the club.

Gloucester are W3 D1 L2 this season in the top flight.

That having been said there have been defensive issues for them.

Of the teams who have played six matches so far, Gloucester have conceded more points than any of them.

Underdogs have a chance

The bookmakers think they have a chance on Friday however.

The win for Gloucester in Premiership Rugby betting is at 6/5* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021) so they are not a forlorn hope.

There is some good home form by Gloucester to back up their chances on Friday night.

A loss this season at Kingsholm against Leicester Tigers is Gloucester’s only home defeat recorded in the Premiership since March this year.

Another interesting statistic for this one is that the last three meetings have all been won by the home side on the day.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 winning margin

It’s worth noting as well that Exeter have been forced into some changes because of some of their players on England duty.

The last time that Gloucester went unbeaten for longer than four matches in the top flight, was in December 2017.

They won five on the bounce on that occasion.

The most recent clash between Gloucester and Exeter was won by the Cherry & Whites. However, they haven’t won back to back fixtures against them since 2011.

But their current home form may put them in this.

They have won six of their last eight Premiership home matches.

A Gloucester +3 handicap is at 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

All but two of their last eleven home matches have been settled by a single-digit points margin.


Exeter Chiefs Preview – Can the Chiefs bounce back?

Having players like Henry Slade away on England duty at the moment isn’t going to help Exeter on the weekend.

The Chiefs suffered a shock home loss at Sandy Park last weekend against London Irish.

That was a 21-33 defeat for the Devonshire club, just as they looked to be hitting some nice form.

Exeter’s loss at the hands of London Irish saw a three-match winning streak snapped.

It left Exeter Chiefs on a W3 L3 record for this season, a return well below their expected standards.

After six rounds of action, the Chiefs start below Gloucester Rugby in the Premiership.

Pressure on the visitors

The pressure will be on them and the win for the Chiefs is at a quote of 8/11* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

There have been positives for Exeter out on their league travels this season.

In their last two, they have won at Sale and Wasps.

That was a good response to having lost at Leicester Tigers in their first away fixture of the season.

Exeter have lost only one of the last six away games in the Premiership, which was that one against Leicester.

Exeter Chiefs do have a good record at Kingsholm however, with a W5 L7 return from their previous Premiership visit there.

During the 2021 calendar year, Exeter have suffered nine defeats in the Premiership.

That’s the most they have recorded in a calendar year since 2016 when they tallied up 11 losses.

They are on a 50% win rate this season and only twice before have Exeter started a campaign with a lower rate of victory after six rounds.

Exeter can never be written off of course, but a thin Exeter -3 handicap line at 10/11 looks a little risky* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021).


Gloucester vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Advice

Exeter are missing key men like Henry Slade and Sam Simmonds and while they still can field a strong side, they could get tripped up.

The last three meetings have gone the way of the home side on the day and Gloucester do have form at Kingsholm.

So the Gloucester To Win outright in match betting is at 6/5 for our pick* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021).


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Exeter Chiefs Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won 6 of their last 8 Premiership home fixtures
  • Gloucester are unbeaten in their last four top flight matches (W3 D1)

The Cherry & Whites haven’t been the most solid in defence at all, but they have found ways to win lately.

They can learn a lot from the way the London Irish handled Exeter last weekend as well.

So the play is for Gloucester but not by any major margin.

The Gloucester 1-10 winning margin is at 11/4 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 15:21 GMT on October 28th, 2021).
