There should be a fantastic clash between Saracens and Gloucester in Premiership Rugby at the StoneX on Saturday.

Saracens have posted back to back league wins convincingly and will not be easily knocked over at home.

But Gloucester have been one of the big success stories of the season and will likely pose some serious threats of their own.

Saracens Preview – Can Sarries defend the StoneX?

With a W8 D1 L2 record under their belt already this season, Saracens are once again a force to be reckoned with.

Their last defeat was at rival Exeter in December but have since responded with back to back league wins.

The first of those was a 61-29 win over Worcester and then last weekend they took a 6-30 road success at Northampton Saints.

Ater Round 11 of this season’s Premiership action, Saracens were the top-scoring side in the division.

Sarries average 36 points per league game this season.

Only current leaders Leicester Tigers had conceded fewer points than Saracens had after eleven rounds of action.

In the match outright for Saturday, Saracens are huge 1/9 odds-on favourites at the StoneX* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

That’s actually a huge credit to them because Saturday’s opponents Gloucester have had a terrific season.

That aforementioned defeat at Exeter is the only loss that Saracens have suffered in the league since round 3.

The form is there and so is their huge home form.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-12 winning margin

* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022)


The last time that Saracens lost a home Premiership Rugby fixture was against Wasps in April 2020.

They are W6 D2 in eight such fixtures since then.

A Saracens -13 handicap for this one is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

Only in home fixtures in this campaign have Saracens failed to score more than 25 points in league games.

Their recent record against Gloucester isn’t bad at all either.

Saracens have suffered one defeat in their last six against Gloucester in the league.

Plus they have won all eight previous home Premiership matches played against the Cherry & Whites.


Gloucester Preview – Can the Cherry & Whites spring a surprise?

The Cherry & Whites are on a W6 D1 L4 record this season in Premiership action and are making a strong play for a top-four finish.

It has been a huge season of progress by Gloucester after a lot of struggles in the previous campaign.

Gloucester though are still the 5/1 underdogs in the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:03 GMT on January 6th, 2022).

Last weekend the Cherry & Whites had a big game on their hands as they hosted Harlequins at Kingsholm.

Gloucester put up a tremendous battle against the reigning champions losing by just three points.

That snapped a three-match winning streak of league form from them.

But they are still carrying very positive away from.

Gloucester are now undefeated in their last four on the road in the top flight, which is the best run of form by them since 2016 (W3 D1).

In three of their last four league away games, Gloucester have scored at least 30 points.

Gloucester then found Saracens too hot to handle time and time again in Premiership clashes.

The Cherry & Whites have lost 19 trips to Saracens in the Premiership.

If they lose on Saturday, they will become just the third time (Sale Sharks, Newcastle Falcons) that Saracens have claimed 20+ home victories against.

One huge weapon that Gloucester have unveiled this season is their rolling maul, as a high percentage of their league tries have come directly from a line out.

So they will probably pose a threat from such positions.

The one criticism of them perhaps is that they have the league-high for average tackles per game, so are doing far too much work in that area.


Saracens vs Gloucester Betting Advice

The home record of Saracens, who are undefeated in 13 home fixtures against Gloucester in the Premiership (W12 D1) has to be a key factor here.

The last time they lost to Gloucester was in 2008 in a home league fixture.

Given that they are in storming form at the StoneX this season on their return to the top flight, Sarries have to be favoured.


Key Facts – Saracens vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Saracens are W12 D2 L1 in their last fifteen Premiership RUgby home matches
  • Saracens are unbeaten in 13 home matches in the league against Gloucester

That’s because the Cherry & Whites, while not the finished article, have looked very good this season.

So they have a reasonable chance of staying with that margin at the StoneX.
