Harlequins have been carrying decent form in the Premiership form and they are well in the hunt for a top-four finish.

There could be a good opportunity ahead of them on Saturday afternoon to strengthen their top-four position.

Quins play host to Gloucester who were toppled at home last weekend by Leicester, cutting shot their revival.

Harlequins Preview – Quins likely to prevail at The Stoop

Harlequins came up short last weekend on a visit to Exeter, but only just. They gave as good as they got and fell by a 1-point margin at Sandy Park.

That’s two losses in their last three games in the Premiership.

Both of those losses were away from home and they remain the only two defeats for Harlequins in their last eight Premiership fixtures.

In the match outright Harlequins are strong 1/6 odds-on favourites to get the victory* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).

They are currently on a three-match winning streak on home turf.

That is their best home run in the Premiership since February 2019 and they look likely to extend this run.

Including cancelled fixture adjustments, Harlequins are W7 D1 L5 this season in the top flight.

From their actual games played Quins are W7 D1 L4, so it’s even better.

Let’s dig a little deeper into their home form for this campaign.

Harlequins have taken a W3 D1 L2 record at the Stoop in this campaign and the two losses were against Bristol Bears and Exeter Chiefs.

Those are the only two teams who are currently above them in the league standings.


Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 11-15 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

(odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021)


Each of Harlequins’ three home wins this season have been by a margin of at least 12 points.

With that in mind a Harlequins -11 handicap at 10/11 piques some interest for Premiership rugby betting* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).

Harlequins are on a three-match winning streak against Gloucester in the Premiership.

Earlier this season on their trip to Kingsholm to face the Cherry & Whites, Harlequins took a comfortable 34-24 victory.

So again that sort of pulls the -11 handicap into view again as they host Gloucester on the weekend on home turf.

Quins have not suffered a home loss in the Premiership against Gloucester since 2006 and that was in March 2019.

A Harlequins 11-15 winning margin option on this game is at 5/1* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).


Gloucester Preview – Can Gloucester spurs themselves back into life?

After such a miserable campaign, things were starting to look up for Gloucester recently.

They picked up back to back wins over Worcester and Wasps to offer themselves a glimmer of hope of avoiding finishing second from bottom.

But that was unravelled last weekend as they missed the chance to make it three in a row as they lost at home against Leicester.

That left them second from bottom in the Premiership, three points only ahead of Worcester Warriors.

Gloucester are big 4/1 underdogs in the match outright for Premiership rugby betting on Saturday* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).

It has not been inspiring stuff from them, but there was that win at Wasps in their most recent road game.

But Quins are a much more difficult opponent at the moment.

The last time that Gloucester won back to back away games in the top flight was in April 2019.

Overall in this campaign, Gloucester have moved on to a W3 L10 record.

They have produced an average of 20 points per game in this campaign, which isn’t bad.

But they have conceded at an average of 24 per fixture and currently hold the third-worst defensive record in the division.

Gloucester are W1 L5 on their league travels in this campaign, the one success their recent one at Wasps.

Three of their five losses have been by a margin of at least eight points.

A Gloucester +11 handicap is at even money for Saturday’s contest at The Stoop* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).

Only in one of their away games this season have Gloucester managed to score more than 20 points in a fixture.

That kind of average just doesn’t look enough to take down Harlequins at the moment.


Harlequins vs Gloucester Betting Advice

Even though they have lost two of their last three, those were away defeats for Quins and they should have no trouble on Saturday.

They should make it four straight home wins.

The Harlequins -11 handicap looks a good place to start at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).

They do as well and hold a good home record against Gloucester in the Premiership.

Gloucester’s home defeat against Leicester Tigers last weekend was a bit of a hammer blow for them.

To be fair they haven’t done too badly on the scoreboard in matches, but we still fancy Quins to steam past them.

The Harlequins 11-15 winning margin at 5/1 is our play for extended odds in Premiership rugby betting* (odds taken 03:51 GMT, March 19th, 2021).
