Gloucester came badly unravelled out at Leicester last weekend to kick off the new season.

There is no respite for the Cherry & Whites here this weekend, as they face Wasps.

Wasps collected a great narrow win at home against the Bristol Bears last weekend to kick start their campaign. They are the favourites at Kingsholm on Saturday.

Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites with a lot to find?

Last weekend Gloucester fell to a 38-15 loss away at Leicester Tigers.

The Cherry & Whites had been down and out at the halftime break, trialing 22-8 at the midway point.

Gloucester are 11/10 underdogs for the victory on Saturday* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

In the 2019/20 Premiership campaign, Gloucester produced a W6 L5 record.

Within that sequence was a win over Wasps, Gloucester taking a 25-9 win at Kingsholm in that one.

But then they lost heavily out on the road in the rematch, which was in March this year.

For rugby betting in this one, we don’t see them turning the tables on the London club.

But one positive for them is that they have won their last three home games against Wasps in all competitions.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-12 winning margin

But the nature of Gloucester’s recent defeat against Wasps last season, suggests that a Wasps -2 handicap for Saturday is going a viable option* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

There was not a lot of consistency around from the Cherry & Whites last season in what was a disappointing campaign from them.

They did win their final home game of the last but only collected one win in their final four fixtures of the season home and away.

Gloucester also lost two of their final three home games.


Wasps Preview – Wasps look likely to open up Gloucester

Wasps got themselves up and running for the new campaign with a tense 23-20 home win over Bristol Bears last weekend.

That was a tight contest all the way and Wasps showed a lot of mettle to come through that.

Wasps finished runners up to Exeter in last season’s Premiership campaign and that was a very good effort from them last weekend.

They may well have it a little bit easier on Saturday even though they have lost four of their last five against the Cherry & Whites.

Wasps are the 4/5 odds-on favourites for rugby betting in the match outright* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

One huge thing in favour of Wasps is that they have a formidable attacking set up.

That’s enough to run any opponent ragged and they did very well on their top-flight travels last season.

Wasps earned a W7 L4 record on their travels last season in the Premiership, one of those defeats being a very excusable one against Exeter.

They finished off the previous campaign in such good fashion.

Only that defeat in their Premierships final against the Chiefs was a blip on their record.

Wasps have won four of their last five league fixtures and look good enough to pick up the four points on Saturday.


Gloucester vs Wasps Betting Advice

Wasps don’t have a great recent track record against Gloucester. But that’s the only variable that we see in the statistics that would prevent a strong backing of the visitors.

We can overlook that novelty because Wasps were a prolific try-scoring team last season.

With the confidence of a win over the Bears behind them last weekend as well, they should take this.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have won their last 3 home games (all competitors) against London Wasps
  • Gloucester and Wasps traded home wins last season
  • Wasps have lost four of their last five against Gloucester


For rugby betting we think that the bookies have the underrated for this trip to Kingsholm a little bit. A Wasps -2 handicap is big value at 10/11* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November).

Gloucester do look a little bit fragile at the moment and there were signs last season that they could be sliding in the wrong direction.

It has to be the away win for us and a Wasps 1-12 winning margin is a good option at 9/5* (odds taken 20:45 GMT Wednesday 25th November)
