Gloucester finally managed to post their second win of the season as they got the better of Worcester at Kingsholm last weekend.

They face a road trip to face Wasps on the weekend as the Cherry & Whites look to double up with wins.

Wasps have not been able to find any recent rhythm at all in the Premiership, having lost four of their last five.

But will they be able to handle themselves against a Goucester side who have much bigger struggles than that in this campaign?

Wasps Preview – Will Wasps take advantage at home?

A loss at home against London Irish last weekend left Wasps with back to back defeats in the Premiership.

They have claimed only the one win in their last five now and that lone victory in the sequence happened at the struggling Worcester.

In the match outright Wasps are the 4/11 odds on favourites despite this run of less than ideal form* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

One troubling thing for them will be the lack of home form.

Wasps have suffered three straight losses at the Ricoh Arena.

The last time that they lost four in a row at home in the Premiership was back in 2013.

There has not been much going the way of Wasps in the head to head with Gloucester either.

They have taken one win over them since 2017, which was last March.

Wasps are W5 L6 this season in the Premiership and have been scoring well enough.

Wasps are averaging around 22 points per league fixture, but there have been issues with them in defence.

At the end of the last round of action, Bath were the only team to have conceded more points this season than Wasps in the top flight.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March)


It’s been an average of 26 points per game going against Wasps.

In the Premiership rugby betting handicap market, a Wasps -7 option is at 10/11* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

In their home matches from this campaign, Wasps have taken a pretty poor W2 L4 record.

Strangely enough, those two victories were against the current top two of Exeter and Bristol.

Three of their four home losses have been by a margin of 10 points or less.

We do think this match is going to be close because of weakness in the defence of Wasps, plus Gloucester aren’t bad in the attack.


Gloucester Preview – Can Gloucester make it back to back wins

A victory last weekend over Worcester Warriors wasn’t enough to lift Gloucester off the bottom of the table.

But it moved them level on points with the Warriors at least and gave the Cherry & Whites the chance to build.

It has been a terrible return of W2 L9 for Gloucester in this season’s Premiership campaign.

The win over Worcester last weekend saw the Cherry & Whites break out of an eight-match losing streak in the top flight.

That was a 22-14 success that they earned at Kingsholm.

Their away form in the top flight is a major concern for them however and part of the reason why they are the 11/5 underdogs in Premiership rugby betting* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

Gloucester have claimed just one away from victory in all competitions since October 2019.

That was at Worcester last August, so that doesn’t exactly instil a lot of confidence that they are going to leave the Ricoh with maximum points.

It is worth a quick look at the away form of Gloucester as well from this season’s campaign.

They have suffered a loss in all five games. Three of those five losses have been by a margin of eight points or more.

A Gloucester +7 handicap comes in at the even money mark for the fixture* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

Taking a closer look at what they have achieved on the road, in three of their five away games, they have not managed to produce more than 15 points in a match.

So while they do have an overall average of 23 points per Premiership game this season, that indicates that they are much stronger on home turf.

There doesn’t quite seem to be a viable enough way to expect the away win to happen in this fixture.


Wasps vs Gloucester Betting Advice

The home win has to be fancied for rugby betting in this one even though Wasps are not in top shape at the moment.

But Gloucester have fared a lot worse than that, so home advantage may tip the balance.

A Wasps -6 handicap looks to be reasonable enough to play from a quote of 10/11* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).


Key Facts – Wasps vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Wasp have lost four of their last five league games
  • Wasps have lost their last three home games
  • Gloucester have won one away game since October 2019 in all competitions


A win over Worcester doesn’t prove anything about Gloucester’s form right now and their losing streak on the road may well continue.

The Wasps 1-12 winning margin fits nicely as a rugby betting selection at 23/10* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

That’s because Wasps have not been in their sharpest of scoring form recently and wouldn’t push it any higher.
