Leicester had a poor season on the domestic front last season, finishing second from bottom in the Premiership.

They jump back into action for the first time in the new season on Saturday when they host Gloucester.

The Cherry & Whites had an average season and nothing more in the last campaign and they will be looking for a good away win to kick off with.

Leicester Preview – Can Leicester hit a positive note?

Leicester Tigers collected a W6 D1 L15 record last season in the Premiership and they were the lowest scoring team in the division.

Were it not for Saracens taking automatic relegation because of their points-deduction, Leicester would likely have been playing in the second tier this season.

It was only 35 tries that the Tigers scored last season, which was a big league-low.

They are going into this fixture as the 8/11 odds-on favourites however* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

We would just throw out there that the Tigers have taken a loss in their first match of the campaign in each of their last three seasons.

Anyway, it was just one victory that Leicester collected last season in their final five fixtures played.

They did have their successes at Welford Road last season, posting a W6 L5 record from their home fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-7 Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November)


It was only an average of just 17 points per game that Leicester produced last season in the Premiership rugby campaign.

We don’t see them coming up with enough to post a wide-margin success. A Leicester -2 handicap is at 10/11* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

Out of interest, this will be their 2500th game for them at Welford Road.

There has been a big trend in recent meetings between Leicester and Gloucester.

Each of the last eight such games have been won by the home side on the day


Gloucester Preview – Can Gloucester pinch an away win?

The away form of Gloucester really let them down at the end of last season.

The overall away record from the Cherry & Whites last season was W2 L9.

Gloucester have actually collected just one away win in Premiership action in the last twelve months.

That one win happened at Worcester in Round 14 of last season’s campaign.

The last time that Glcoeuster collected a win at Welford Road was all the way back in 2007.

Gloucester are currently at a quote of 6/5 to pick up the victory on Saturday* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

So the bookmakers are expecting this contest to be tight.

Gloucester finished in mid-table last season with a W8 L14 record on the board. They were scoring well enough.

They were the joint top-try scoring team outside of the top four at the end of last season.

But it is hard to get past that away record of theirs from the last campaign. It has only been a short amount of time since the last campaign ended.

Will they have done enough during that period to pull out the win at Welford Road?


Leicester vs Gloucester Betting Advice

This is likely to be a tight game but we would have to go with the home side just getting it.

Leicester weren’t terrible on home turf last season and so we think that they can squeeze this out.

The Leicester 8/11 odds on the match outright are there for the taking* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).
