Gloucester earned their first win of the new Premiership Rugby season last weekend with a victory at Worcester.

That eased a little bit of pressure. It’s a home advantage for the Cherry & Whites on Saturday as they host Sale Sharks.

With only one league victory in their last five, the Sharks head to Kingsholm on the weekend as underdogs.

Gloucester Preview – Hosts to edge the battle at Kingsholm?

Gloucester opened the season with back to back losses against Northampton and Leicester.

The one against Leicester was in their first home game at Kingsholm.

But with the boost of a victory at Worcester last weekend, Gloucester will be looking for success back at home on Saturday.

The Cherry & Whites have taken a win in four of their last six home Premiership fixtures.

They are favourites to secure the victory with home advantage.

For Premiership rugby betting, the win for Gloucester is at a quote of 4/6* (odds recorded 18:16 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

Gloucester have, however, lost their last three home games against Sale.

In fact, Gloucester have been victorious in just one of their last six league games against the Sharks, that lone win happening away in Salford in 2019.

But with the visitors currently out of form can the Cherry & Whites take their chance?

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 18:16 GMT on October 7th, 2021)


There have only been two previous occasions where Gloucester have lost their first two home games of a campaign.

That was in 2000 and in 2016.

A Gloucester -3 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 for Premiership rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:16 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

Before this run of three home defeats against Sale, they have won 15 of the previous 17.

90% of Gloucester’s tries this season have been scored after a line out. They won’t care how they come on the weekend, as long as they do.


Sale Sharks Preview – Can Sharks find some away form?

What is giving Gloucester a decent chance in this is the lack of form from Sale at the moment.

Sale have failed to take a win in any of their last three fixtures on the road (D1 L2).

This is the longest winless away streak that they have since 2018 when they failed to win in seven.

In the match outright for rugby betting there is a quote of 13/10 on the Sharks* (odds recorded 18:16 GMT on October 7th, 2021).

This does look as if it is going to end up being close.

Sale opened the season with a one-point margin victory over Bath.

Bath were the last team that Sale Sharks beat away, incidentally.

They followed that up with what would have been a massively disappointing draw at London Irish.

Last weekend they were toppled in Salford by Exeter.

That was Exeter’s first win of the season.

Overall, it has been one win for Sale Sharks in their last five Premiership Fixtures.

That’s 19 lost from them, and they have the second-highest amount of missed tackles per match on average as well.

We need to swing back around to the handicap margin for rugby betting.

In the last two league visits to Kingsholm, Sale have won by margins of six and three points.

None of the last three meetings at either venue have been settled by more than a margin of six.

But this season, the Sharks are behind Gloucester in terms of points scored.

Key Facts – Gloucester vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won 4 of their last 6 at Kingsholm
  • Gloucester have lost three home matches in a row against Sale Sharks
  • Sale Sharks have won win in their last five Premiership matches


Sale have had their issues this season, and their draw at London Irish, one of the weaker teams, wasn’t great.

They gave up 31 points in that fixture. There may just be too many defensive issues there to back the Sharks, who again have one win in their last five league games only.

A Gloucester 1-10 winning margin at 11/4 is the main pick* (odds recorded 18:16 GMT on October 7th, 2021).
