Gloucester Preview – Can Gloucester land an important home win?

Gloucester had their match against Worcester cancelled last weekend, so this is their first league game since March 12th.

The break may have been a nice reset for them as Gloucester are W1 L3 in their last four completed league fixtures.

They are still within touch of the top four, however, but there’s little margin for error.

A win for Gloucester is at a quote of 4/7* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair).

It has been a good season for Gloucester at Kingsholm.

They have won seven of their last eight matches there in all tournaments.

Gloucester have taken a W4 L1 record in their last five league home fixtures.

Harlequins were the only visitors in that sequence to leave with a victory.

The head to head does make good reading for Gloucester who have suffered only one defeat in their last eight against them.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-7 winning margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair)


Gloucester are undefeated on home turf in Premiership Rugby since December 2014 against Wasps.

The Cherry & Whites just need to pull themselves out of this little slump.

After winning six of their previous seven league matches (home and away), it’s been one win in four.

In their last league match, they were only narrowly defeated by a couple of points at the AJ Bell against Sale Sharks.

Just once this season have Gloucester been trailing at the half time break.

Can they lean on that excellent home record against Wasps and come up with the goods?


Wasps Preview – Do Wasps have enough?

Wasps have won only one of their last four Premiership Rugby fixtures as well.

After losing three on the spin, they recorded a narrow home win over Newcastle Falcons last time out.

That victory was taken by just a 3-point margin.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for Wasps is at 6/4* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair).

So they are not heavy underdogs at Kingsholm with the bookies.

Given that Wasps have a poor record on the road this season, this does look like a tough prospect.

Wasps have lost five of their last six away matches in the league (W1).

The lone win for them in that sequence came in a shock victory at Exeter.

Wasps have tallied at least 19 points each match in this current three match losing streak on the road.

Only two of their nine victories this season (home and away) have been by a margin of more than 10 points.

This does have the look of being a tight game, whichever way we look at it.

The handicap line is at Gloucester -3 for 10/11 in rugby betting* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair).

Wasps have scored more points in the final 20 minutes of Premiership Rugby action this season than any other team.

They have also conceded the fewest amount of points in that period.


Gloucester vs Wasps Betting Advice

This looks tight, but the preference has to be with the home win as Gloucester have been excellent at Kingsholm this season.

While they are only W1 L3 in their last four, all defeats in the sequence were away from home while the lone victory was taken at Kingsholm.

The Gloucester -3 handicap at 10/11 is the first pick* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair).


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Wasps Betting Tip

  • Gloucester have lost three of their last four league fixtures (W1)
  • Gloucester have won three of their last four at home in the league
  • Wasps have won one of their last eight against Gloucester (W1 D1)


Wasps have been scoring consistently on the road recently, but have still been struggling to get wins.

So they may just come up short but it will probably be tight on the scoreboard.

Gloucester to win by a 1-7 margin at 11/4 is the other pick* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfair).
