Having slipped outside the top four due to back to back defeats, Gloucester will be desperate to return to winning ways on the weekend.

They are the match favourites to pick up a victory as they host Northampton Saints.

The Saints have been struggling with their recent form as well, but they do have some away form to bring to the table.

Gloucester Preview – Can Gloucester get back to winning ways?

The Cherry & Whites have come up just a little bit short in their last two league fixtures.

Those were tougher ones against Exeter and Leicester Tigers away from home.

But the defeats saw Gloucester drop from the top four last weekend.

Gloucester do have a game in hand against four of the five teams above them, so there is a lot to play for.

They also haven’t lost three league games in a row in the course of the last twelve months.

In the match outright for Saturday, Gloucester are 2/5 for the win on home turf* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

The Cherry & Whites do have some very good home form.

Gloucester have won all but two of their last eight fixtures at Kingsholm in all competitions.

Earlier this season they lost heavily against Northampton and have won only two of their last six against the Saints at home.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-7 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365)


Despite only going W2 D1 L3 in their last six at Kingsholm against the Saints, Gloucester’s half time record has been good.

In each of their last six home matches in the Premiership against the Saints, Gloucester have been leading at half time.

The Gloucester/Gloucester HT/FT rugby betting pick is at 4/5* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

The Cherry & Whites just need a bit of a revival at the moment.

This looks like a slightly easier assignment than what they have faced in their last two fixtures.


Northampton Saints Preview – Can Saints upset the odds?

Since beating Worcester Warriors at Sixways in January, the Saints have seen their form fall away.

It is a three-match losing streak that the Saints are currently on in the top flight.

Two of those three losses were against Exeter and Leicester, the two teams who have inflicted recent defeats on Gloucester as well.

Despite losing their last two against Sale and Exeter, neither defeat was by more than a three-point margin.

Northampton have come up with some reasonable away form lately.

They have taken a win in three of their last five road fixtures in the Premiership.

Northampton are 21/10 for a win on Saturday* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

They did take that home win over Gloucester earlier this season, but the Saints haven’t completed a season double against them since the 2016/17 season.

Northampton did prevail on their latest visit to Kingsholm.

They earned a 31-26 success there in January last year.

With this three-match losing streak, Northampton Saints are on their worst run of form since losing nine in a row in late 2020.

A Northampton Saints +5 handicap is at 10/11 for Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 17:44 GMT on March 4th, 2022 at Bet365).

It hasn’t been a bad campaign away from home by the Saints this season.

They have won four of their eight games.

The last three away wins that the Saints have taken have been by an average margin of 23 points.

So when they have won, they have won big.
