Gloucester are the favourites for this home fixture on the weekend, as they look to find a bit of cheer.

It has been a difficult season for them with only five successes on the board for the campaign.

They lost again in midweek, but will have a chance to restore a bit of order against the struggling Tigers at Kingsholm.

Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites can score a win

Gloucester are W5 L11 for this campaign and are a long way from a top-four finish, something they achieved in the last campaign.

One positive for them is that they are the second-highest scoring teams in the bottom seven.

Their return to action after the extended break started well as they collected a big away win at Gloucester.

But it has been back to back losses since then, first against rivals Bristol and then out on the road in midweek at Saracens.

In three of their last four league games now, Gloucester have given up at least 33 points, so that is an area in which they need to raise their game.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester HT Margin 1-7

(odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August)


Across all competitions, the only match that Gloucester have won in their last nine games now was that success at Worcester.

It is a three-match losing streak at Kingsholm that they are currently on in the Premiership.

Only once before have they ever lost four on the spin at home in the league and that was over 20 years ago.

Gloucester have won their last two home games against the Leicester Tigers and the Cherry & Whites are 1/20 to get another* (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).


Leicester Preview – Leicester with a difficult away game

Leceister were on a three-match losing streak in the Premiership before snapping that in midweek.

They got themselves a win over London Irish on Wednesday to put a rare bit of cheer on the board.

The Tigers are second from bottom in the premiership with a W5 D1 L10 record, a lack of bonus points leaving them seven adrift of Gloucester.

One thing missing from Leicester’s season is an away win, but they haven’t lost them all, as they drew at Harlequins in Round 7.

Leicester are the lowest-scoring side in the Premiership with only 249 posted.

That is a very poor average of just 15 points per game, and that’s nowhere near enough to expect an away win.

Leicester +29 in the handicap market is at 10/11* (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).

The Tigers did claim a home win over Gloucester when they met for the first time this season back in November.

It has actually been back to back wins that they have over the Cherry & Whites and three in the last five.

But each of the last five meetings between the two old rivals have gone the way of the home side on the day and we fully expect that trend to continue.


Gloucester vs Leicester Betting Advice

There is just no way that Leicester are going to really keep Gloucester off the scoreboard enough to get a win.

The Tigers only snapped their losing streak with a 13-7 win over London Irish in midweek at home.

They are going to need a lot more than that tally to get the better of Gloucester at Kingsholm.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Leicester Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won their last 2 at Kingsholm against the Tigers
  • Gloucester have won 1 of their last 9 games in all competitions

So we are going to fix towards a reasonable enough Gloucester 11-20 point winning margin for the game at 11/4* (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).
