Bath v Gloucester Preview

So it is a dead rubber than with Bath sat rock bottom of Pool 1 in the Premiership Rugby Cup. They have only managed to put the one point on the board from their three games played so far. The best that they could hope for is a win that leaves them not finishing bottom by leapfrogging Harlequins.

Bath have played the one home game in the competition this season, a 19-27 loss against the Quins back in October. Following that, they lost out a steer and then Newcastle in a pretty comprehensive fashion. They have produced only the 44 points in their three games played.

In the Gallagher Premiership, Bath are sat down in eighth with five wins this season recorded. They are the joint third lowest scoring side in Premiership and because neither of these sides have interest in the game it’s probably worth just sticking on the lower side of a handicap.

A Gloucester +12 is at 16/1 odds, for example,* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 3rd, 2019 at 11:56 pm). Gloucester played out a 31-31 tie against Bath when they met in the Premiership earlier this season. It really was, as the outcome suggests, an even contest between the two. They both first over four tires and Gloucester salvaged something with the boot of Billy Twelvetrees in the final minute.

Bath v Gloucester Prediction

Bath have actually won five of the last six between the two clubs. The one defeat which Bath did suffer during the sequence was on home soil just back in 2017. There have been some really tight games between the two of them across the last six meetings so we can’t help but feel that sticking with a narrower handicap is worth doing. A Gloucester +13 handicap is a good fit at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 3rd, 2019 at 6:15 pm)
