Leicester Tigers are still top of the Premiership Rugby table and they have a top-four clash with Gloucester coming up on the weekend.

This should be a cracker of a fixture as both teams have been in good form recently.

It was Leicester who came out on top in the first league meetings of the season and will be aiming to land their fourth-straight win over the Cherry & Whites.

Leicester Tigers Preview – Can Tigers extend their form?

Premiership leaders Leicester Tigers have won their last three league fixtures.

After losing to Sale Sharks back at the end of January, this has been a good response by them.

Last weekend they landed a 24-20 away win at bottom side Bath.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, Leicester are 2/5 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

Leicester haven’t lost Welford Road this season in any competition.

The last time that the Tigers were beaten on home turf was in Round 21 of last season’s campaign against Bristol.

Leicester do also have some head to head form going against Gloucester.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester Tigers 1-10 winning margin
2/1

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill)

 

Leicester have suffered just one loss in their last six matches against Gloucester, which was in August 2020.

It is a fifteen match winless streak at home that Leicester are on against Gloucester in all competitions.

It’s thirteen undefeated in Premiership Rugby fixtures.

A Leicester -6 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

If the Tigers win on the weekend it will be their 15th win of the season, which would be their highest tally since the 2014/15 campaign.

 

Gloucester Preview – Can the Cherry & Whites raid Welford Road?

Gloucester are in the top four with a game in hand above the other teams around them.

This would be a huge four points if they could get them at Welford Road.

To do that, they have to defy 2/1 underdog odds* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

They had a bye last weekend, so they will be coming into this fixture fresh.

In their last league match, Gloucester suffered a loss against the Exeter Chiefs.

That snapped a four-match winning streak that the Cherry & Whites had been on in all competitions.

Gloucester’s defeat at Exeter was just their second away loss of the season in Premiership Rugby.

Their other away loss was at Northampton in Round 1.

Gloucester are bolstered by Mark Atkinson and Louis Rees-Zammit both returning from international duty.

In total, the Cherry & Whites make five changes from that Exeter loss.

The last time that Gloucester lost back to back league matches was right at the start of the season.

The second of those losses were against the Tigers.

A Gloucester +6 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 17:48 GMT on February 25th, 2022 at William Hill).

Home and away Gloucester are winless in their last three against the Tigers.
