Gloucester have managed to record back to back league successes, which have been very welcome after a miserable first half of the season.

Will the Cherry & Whites be able to keep this new-found momentum going on the weekend when they host Leicester?

The Tigers have some patchy current form and out on the road, it hasn’t been great lately from them.

Gloucester Preview – Will Cherry & Whites make it three in a row?

Gloucester recorded a dramatic 20-19 win away at Wasps last weekend, giving them back to back wins in current Premiership rugby form.

That was just their third win of the season. But it hints that things are starting to turn around for them perhaps.

In the match outright for rugby betting on this game, Gloucester are the 2/5 odds-on favourites* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

The last time that Gloucester won three league matches on the spin was back in April 2019.

Their victory over Worcester in their last game at Kingsholm ended a run of four straight home league defeats from them.

Given their struggles over the first half of the season, the defensive record isn’t great by Gloucester.

They have conceded an average of 24 points per fixture in this campaign, compared to their own output of an average of 21 points per fixture.

Earlier this season when the Cherry & Whites paid a visit to Leicester, they suffered a pretty heavy 15-38 defeat at the hands of the Tigers.

That 23-point margin defeat is the biggest loss that Gloucester have suffered this season, but some distance.

Generally, they have kept things fairly tight and competitive in matches.

Only one of their six home matches have been settled by a margin of more than ten points, regardless of the match outcome.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 Winning Margin

Gloucester -6 handicap is trading at 10/11 currently for rugby betting* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

The Cherry & Whites have won only one of their last four fixtures against Leicester Tigers in the Premiership.

That victory did come at Kingsholm in August last year. The last time that Gloucester lost at home to Leicester was back in 2016.

They will have been delighted with their back to back wins which have lifted them off the foot of the table.

Can Gloucester keep the momentum going?


Leicester Preview – Can the Tigers find some away form?

Leicester Tigers are still without a victory in this season’s Premiership away from home.

The one game that they have won on their travels happened at Bayonne in the European Challenge Cup in December last year.

There has been a trend with their recent league games, in that all of them have ended with a win for the home team on the day.

From their 10 Premiership games played this season, Leicester are W5 L5.

Because of cancelled fixtures, it has only been three away games that they have managed to play in this season in the Premiership.

Those have ended in defeat against Bristol, London Irish and Harlequins.

In two of those away defeats, The Tigers never even managed to reach single figures in points in the match.

The Leicester +6 handicap option is at even money in this game* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

Their most recent away game was at Bristol a fortnight ago and the Tigers lost 17-3.

We’re not suggesting Gloucester are as good as Bristol Bears, but the lack of away form by Leicester certainly makes the Cherry & Whites’ position look better going in this fixture.

Gloucester vs Leicester Betting Advice

Even though they have only had the opportunity to play three away games this season, Leicester have struggled.

The points have not been there for them and there is a clear separation between their home form and away form.

So we are sticking with the home win with the Gloucester -6 handicap at 10/11* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).

That looks to be a reasonable target for the home side as they haven’t done badly in the scoring department.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Leicester Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won their last two Premiership Rugby matches
  • Gloucester on a three-match winning streak at home against Leicester
  • Leicester’s last five matches have been won by the home side on the day


The Cherry & Whites have to have taken some confidence from posting back to back wins in a tough season.

With the home advantage to come on Saturday against a team that have yet to perform on the road, this is a golden opportunity for Gloucester.

They have won their last three home games against the Tigers in the top flight and we think that they extend that further.

Gloucester 1-10 winning margin at 2/1* (odds taken 20:30 GMT, Wednesday, 10th March).
