Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites in great form

Gloucester are proving to be one of the huge success stories of the Premiership Rugby season.

The Cherry & Whites look to be building towards something big.

They are on a W6 D1 L3 record this season in the league.

After huge disappointment last season with results, they are firing on all cylinders at the moment.

They have suffered just one defeat in their last seven matches in all competitions.

That was against Lyon in the European Challenge Cup.

In the match outright for Saturday’s rugby betting, Gloucester are a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021).

They do look capable of holding their own at Kingsholm against the reigning champions.

Gloucester’s home form does stand up.

They have suffered only one loss at Kingsholm since September.

That lone defeat was against Exeter Chiefs in league action, but only by a margin of three points.

Last weekend Gloucester paid a visit to rivals Bath and came away with an easy 40-20 win at the Rec.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-7 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021)


One absolutely huge asset for Gloucester this season has been their ability to score a try following a line out.

More than two-thirds of their tries this season have come from such a play.

Their driving maul has been nothing short of spectacular and no team as of yet has come up with a way to stop it.

This match is expected to be tight and a Gloucester -1 handicap rolls in at a quote of Even Money* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021).

In all competitions, Gloucester have won their last four matches at Kingsholm.

Without question, they pose a threat as they look to snap a three-match losing home streak against Quins.


Harlequins Preview – Tough trip for Quins

The head to head does make for some pleasing reading for Harlequins ahead of Sunday’s trip to Kingsholm.

They have won their last three Premiership Rugby visits to Gloucester.

Two of those wins were by a margin of at least 10 points as well.

But they face a much stronger Gloucester set-up this time around and will have their work cut out for them.

The win for Harlequins in the match outright for rugby betting is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021).

They do arrive on the back of a successful match last weekend.

Harlequins faced Northampton Saints at Twickenham Stadium in the “Big Game” and produced a 41-27 win.

That was after coming on strong late into the fixture to see off the Saints.

It also boosted the current form of Quins.

That victory was their third in a row in all competitions for them.

But their form in the Premiership specifically hasn’t been all that great recently.

Harlequins started their title defence well with three straight wins at the beginning of the season.

But they have lost four of their last seven and more recently, two of their last three.

Quins have suffered two defeats in their last three Premiership Rugby away games.

Those were against Sale and Leicester Tigers but didn’t lose by more than a six-point margin in either of those.

The Harlequins +1 handicap in rugby betting is at a quote of 4/5* (odds recorded 18:38 GMT on December 29th, 2021).

Home and away Quins have won their last five on the bounce against Gloucester in all competitions, including their last four Premiership meetings.


Gloucester vs Harlequins Betting Advice

The head to head form reads in clear favour of Harlequins. But they may just be worth opposing on the weekend.

Quins have lost two of their last three on the road and could have their hands full on Sunday.

They face a very tough, well-organized Gloucester side and will be pushed hard at Kingsholm.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Harlequins Betting Tip
