This is the final game of round 20 of this season’s Premiership and this is not a game of any consequence.

It is a mid-table clash between Gloucester and Harlequins who are separated by only one point in the Premiership.

Will it be the home advantage that gets the Cherry & Whites across the line in the fixture, for which they are the odds-on favourites?

Gloucester Preview – Gloucester remain in mixed form

Gloucester missed out on a chance at a three-match winning streak in the Premiership last time out in action.

That was not an easy game though, as they went to Sandy Park to face runaway leaders Exeter.

The Cherry & Whites suffered a 22-35 loss in that away fixture, but they still have a chance to make it three in a row at Kingsholm.

Back to back wins over London Irish and Leicester have put them in that position and Gloucester haven’t had any real problems keeping the scoreboard ticking over since their return to action.

They are averaging 24 points per game this season and in the match outright, they are the 1/2 favourites to pick up the win* (odds taken 23:29 GMT Sunday 13th September).

Earlier this season Gloucester suffered a narrow loss away at Harlequins and are W2 L3 in their last five against them.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 winning margin

(odds taken 23:29 GMT Sunday 13th September)


Each of Gloucester’s last four league games have been won by the home team on the day, so there is a trend running there.

This isn’t an absolute gimme for Gloucester at all, as they are W2 L3 in their last five league games at Kingsholm against Harlequins.

So things remain pretty even between these and in the current league standings, the Cherry & Whites trail Quins by just one point.


Harlequins Preview – Quins still searching for consistency

It has been a W2 L3 record from Harlequins in their last five league fixtures. One of those was an away win, earned in midweek.

That was on a trip to The Stoop where they faced the out-of-form London Irish and got themselves a 38-15 success.

They needed that as well because Quins had suffered five away defeats in a row in the top flight, so they have snapped that poor streak.

A look across most of the statistics this season in the Premiership between Gloucester and Harlequins and there is little to split the pair.

One notable difference is that the Quins have produced 11-fewer tries than what Glocuester have done this season and that could be a telling difference on the night.

Harlequins are the 13/8 underdogs for the match in the outright* (odds taken 23:29 GMT Sunday 13th September).

Harlequins collected a 2-point win on their last league visit to Kingsholm, who was in September 2018.

That’s two of the last three meetings between Queens and Gloucester that have finished within a four-point margin.

So naturally, the handicap line is going to be fairly narrow in this one and a Quins +5 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 23:29 GMT Sunday 13th September).

With only two games to go after this fixture, there is no chance for either of these reaching the top-four.

So there is nothing important riding on this game.


Gloucester vs Harlequins Betting Advice

With nothing at stake in this fixture, then it has to be the home win that is supported all the way. But we have to look past the odds-on price on the win for Gloucester.

A Gloucester -5 Handicap is at 10/11 odds and still not quite appealing for us in this one, certainly not with some recent tight games between the two.

Gloucester have had a little more about them in putting points on the board recently, and they have won their last two home fixtures.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Harlequins Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won their last two home games in the league
  • Each of Gloucester’s last four league games have been won by the home team on the day
  • Harlequins and Gloucester have split the last four meetings with two wins each


Quins may not be able to match up to the Cherry & Whites on Monday night, as there is not likely to be too much intensity around.

So on the search for a bit more betting value in rugby betting for Gloucester v Harlequins, we are going to simply look at the Gloucester 1-10 winning margin for a quote of 12/5* (odds taken 23:29 GMT Sunday 13th September).
