Worcester slumped again last weekend to another defeat and that was a costly one against fellow strugglers Gloucester.

Defeat left the Warriors at the foot of the Premiership table and badly out of sorts.

They return to home soil at Sixways this weekend, but they get one of the toughest visitors that they could get at the moment in the form of league leaders Bristol Bears.

Will the Bears get maximum points to further strengthen their position at the top of the table?

Worcester Preview – Tough evening ahead for the Warriors

There was another blow for Worcester last weekend at they fell to defeat against bottom side Gloucester at Kingsholm.

That leaves them winless now since the opening weekend of the new season when they edged out London Irish by a point at Sixways.

Overall, accounting for the adjustments for cancelled fixtures, Worcester are W3 L8 for the season.

From their actual nine matches played they are W1 L8.

As their one win this season happened at home, their away form is a miserable five straight losses.

There has just been a lack of scoring threat from the Warriors across the course of the season.

Only in one of their away games played in this campaign, have they managed more than 14 points in a fixture.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for Worcester is the underdog option at 13/5* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

Our betting prediction:
Bristol 8-14 winning margin
4/1

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

 

It has been an average of just 14 points per game scored across the course of the season by Worcester.

So it’s hard to see where they come up with a win.

One little positive for them is that they have taken three losing bonus points in the last six rounds of league action.

That’s just keeping them off the bottom of the table at the moment ahead of Gloucester.

Worcester Warriors are also on a three-match losing streak against Bristol since a victory at Ashton Gate in March 2019.

Worcester lost last season’s corresponding fixture 36-13 at Sixways.

 

Bristol Bears Preview – Good chance at points for the Bears

The Bears have actually never won successive away fixtures at Sixways, but they should have a good chance of changing that.

After all, they are the 3/10 odds-on favourites in rugby betting match outright for Saturday’s trip to Worcester* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

The Bristol Bears are still sitting in a very good place at the top of the table in the Premiership.

They have earned a W8 D1 L2 record and this is one of the easier games that they are going to get on paper.

They eased to a 17-3 win at home over Leicester Tigers last weekend, their third win in their last five league games (D1 L1).

They have suffered only one defeat since the opening weekend of the season. That was at Sale in Round 8.

The other defeat for the season was because of a cancelled fixture.

The last time that Bristol were on the road was on a visit to London Irish when they played out a thrilling 34-34 draw.

We don’t see Worcester getting close to them.

A Bristol -9 handicap is a good starting place here at 10/11* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

Bristol Bears have taken a W3 D1 L1 record from their five away games this season.

They scored at least 18 points in each of those away games as well, so they are going to get opportunities against the Warriors.

Bristol are averaging just shy of 25 points per league game this season.

Just to give them further credence, the Bears haven’t lost away from home in the Premiership since a visit to Wasps back in November last year.

 

Worcester vs Bristol Bears Betting Advice

This should be a fairly routine victory for the league leaders Bristol Bears at Sixways on Saturday.

Worcester are just not anything of an attacking threat and fell tamely to bottom side Gloucester last weekend.

The Bears -9 handicap at 10/11 is the first pick for Premiership rugby betting* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

  • Bristol Bears haven’t lost on the road since November last year

 

Bristol haven’t really posted big-margin wins away from home this season. Two of the three have been under 13 points.

With that in mind, it is the Bristol 1-12 winning margin option that really stands out as a selection in this contest at 21/10* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

We do note again Worcester’s three losing bonus points in their last six matches.

We are halfway through the season and coasting to a victory without busting a gut would fit the bill nicely for the Bears.
