Gloucester have been having a really rough season in the Premiership. That has been largely down to a poor defence.

They need to get themselves up and running quickly and they may have a chance to do that at Kingsholm on Saturday.

Northampton are paying a visit and they have not had a lot to cheer about themselves recently and go as narrow underdogs.

Gloucester Preview – Can the Cherry & Whites give themselves a boost?

It has been a poor campaign for Gloucester so far in this season’s Premiership with only a W1 L5 record.

So there are clear struggles there. The Cherry & Whites have conceded more points than anyone else in this campaign.

The only win that they have taken in their last six games happened at home against Ulster in European action.

In the Premiership only, they have claimed one home win since the end of November last year.

Last season’s corresponding fixture at Kingsholm was scrapped because of the health crises.

In the match outright for rugby betting, a win for Gloucester is the favourite option at 8/11* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

Can Gloucester get back on track?

Well, they do have some head to head form against the Saints that suggests that they can.

Gloucester have suffered only one defeat against Nottingham since January 2018 and that was away at Franklin’s Gardens.

The last time that Glcouester lost at Kingsholm against the Saints was on January 1st 2017.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-7 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

(odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January)


Gloucester are on a three-match winning streak in league rugby at Kingsholm against Northampton.

The biggest margin of victory that the Cherry & Whites took in that sequence was 11 points.

In the handicap market for this fixture in rugby betting, there is a tight line in play.

A Gloucester -2 is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).


Northampton Preview – Can the Saints pull clear of Glouester?

Northampton are third from bottom in the Premiership heading back into the weekend of action.

That is just one point and one place above Gloucester. So this is a highly important clash for both sides.

Northampton are W1 L3 from their four completed games in his campaign.

In the match outright in rugby betting, the Northampton Saints are the 6/5 underdogs* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

But that quote doesn’t leave them as overwhelming underdogs without a chance.

The last game that Northampton played though was back on Boxing Day, so it’s been a long break for them.

That game saw them beat Worcester at Franklin’s Gardens.

It was a landmark victory for them as well as the Saints had been on a 12 match losing streak in all competitions before that.

The last time that Northampton did win an away game in the Premiership was in August last year at London Irish.

Northampton do not appear to have the scoring threat in them that Gloucester have.

So we do think that is where the difference is going to be on the day in this fixture, so we support the home win outright.

The Saints have played two away games in this season’s league campaign and have lost both of them at Sale and Bristol.

Both defeats were by less than a 10-point margin.

That having been said, a Saints +2 handicap at even money looks risky* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).


Gloucester vs Northampton Betting Advice

Neither of these are having a great deal of joy this season. But we think that Glcuoester are the ones that get the points.

They have offered a lot more in attack than their opponents have done this season.

The Gloucester -2 handicap is worth playing at for 10/11* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

We question how much Northampton are likely to hurt them at Kingsholm.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Northampton Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won one league home games since September
  • Gloucester have lostonce to the Saints since January 2018
  • Northampton have no away win since a victory at London Irish last August


As we expect the home win then, for Premiership rugby betting we can look for some extended odds.

A Gloucester 1-7 winning margin is going to be our selection for that at 13/5* (odds taken 04:14 GMT Thursday, 28th January).

That indicates a comfortable if not emphatic home win, and a much-needed one, for the Cherry & Whites on Saturday.
