That includes back to back defeats in Premiership Rugby for the Falcons.

After the recent European action, Newcastle get back to league action at Kingston Park as they host Gloucester who are having a good strong season.

Newcastle Falcons Preview – Can Falcons snap their slump?

The winless streak for the Newcastle Falcons in Premiership Rugby is up to four (D1 L3).

There have been back to back defeats for them in which they have barely troubled the scoreboard.

Those were a 31-0 loss at Leicester Tigers, before a 44-8 hammering at home by Northampton Saints.

Newcastle are the 5/4 underdogs in Premiership Rugby betting for Saturday* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

With the Falcons having won only one of their last five meetings with Gloucester, this could be another tough afternoon for the Falcons.

But even though they have had their recent struggles with form, Newcastle’s home record is pretty good.

Their loss against Northampton in their last home match, is only one of two losses for them in their last ten at Kingston Park in all competitions (W7 D1).

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365)


In last season’s corresponding fixture, Newcastle took a 22-10 victory over Gloucester.

Newcastle are W4 L5 in their last nine home league matches against the Cherry & Whites.

Home and away, they have lost five of their last six against Gloucester in all tournaments.

The Falcons just haven’t looked like a scoring threat recently.

With that in mind, seeing them hold out for a +3 handicap at 10/11 looks to be on shaky ground* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

They may have some reasonable home form, but current form is all with Gloucester.


Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites can take the points

After a three-match winning streak in Premiership Rugby, Gloucester had their run snapped in a loss against Harlequins in their penultimate fixture.

But then they impressively bounced back to take a 1-point margin win at Saracens.

That was a show of character and strength by Gloucester  who are W7D1 L4 this season.

In the match outright for rugby betting, Gloucester are 8/13 to land the win* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

They have been a very efficient, powerful team this season.

They have just about perfected the driving maul from line-outs, with a high percentage of their tries this season coming from such situations.

The last match that Gloucester played was in the European Challenge Cup last weekend.

Gloucester claimed an easy home win over USA Perpignan in that one.

In all competitions the Cherry & Whites are W8 L3 in their last eleven.

They have produced a fine run of away form in the Premiership as well.

Gloucester have remained unbeaten in their last five away matches in the Premiership, winning four of those.

It’s a three-match winning streak by them on their top-flight travels.

So they look to be the solid pick for Rugby Betting.

The handicap line looks as if it can realistically be pushed out a little.

A Gloucester -5 handicap at 21/20 offers something to play at* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

They are going to be pretty much back to full strength after ringing in the changes against Perpignan last weekend.


Newcastle Falcons vs Gloucester Betting Advice

A top four finish for Gloucester in Premiership Rugby has to be a genuine target for them this season.

Head coach George Skivington has seen his side make some wonderful progress this season.

The visitors look the more likely of the two in this one and the Gloucester -5 handicap at 21/20 is the first pick* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on January 27th, 2022 at Bet365).
