Find the latest betting odds below ahead of Round Three.

Gloucester v Bristol

  • Friday 14th September, 7:45pm

1/6 Odds for Cherry and Whites

Gloucester kicked off their Gallagher Premiership campaign with an impressive 27-16 win against Northampton Saints, an encouraging display in front of the Kingsholm faithful that supports their 10/1 odds with Coral to go all the way this season. Bolstered by the summer arrivals of Danny Cipriani and Matt Banahan, the Cherry and Whites have added another attacking dimension to their play behind the scrum, and look a serious threat from out wide with ball in hand. That win was followed by a pulsating 31-31 draw against West Country rivals Bath, and with Johan Ackermann’s men currently 3rd in the table, they’ll be targeting a win against the newly-promoted Bristolians. They’re 1/6 with Boylesports to do so.

Back The Bears At 4/1

8th-placed Bristol have been spirited, competitive and dogged in their opening encounters following promotion from the Greene King IPA Championship, displaying the togetherness they’ll need to preserve their top-flight status. Their performances have suggested that, despite 9/5 odds with Betfair to go straight back down, this isn’t necessarily a formality. The sight of over 26,000 packing into Ashton Gate to watch their opening day 17-10 victory over Bath will live long in the memory for followers of the Bears and, although they suffered a 44-23 reverse to Saracens last time out, there is no shame in falling short at Allianz Park. They’re 4/1 with Boylesports to return to winning ways against Gloucester and secure their second victory in three games.

Harlequins v Bath

  • Saturday 15th September, 3pm

Rebuilding Job Continues For Gustard

Eyebrows were raised when England defence coach Paul Gustard left his role with the RFU to take on the head of rugby role down at the Twickenham Stoop, replacing the departed John Kingston. The lure of stamping his own authority on Harlequins led Gustard away from the Red Rose a year out from the Rugby World Cup, but it’s been a mixed bag thus far for Quins, who are 66/1 with Bet365 to lift the Premiership trophy aloft come May. Having put over half a century of points on Sale Sharks in Round One, they then fell 25-18 away to Northampton Saints. The coaching staff will be eager their 4th-placed team get back to winning ways against Bath this weekend.

Winless Bath Expect a Response

Todd Blackadder’s star-studded Bath outfit find themselves at the wrong end of the table, winless after two league games. Despite being able to call on the likes of Toby Faletau, Jamie Roberts and Francois Louw, the West Country men lost out against Bristol before securing a frantic, high-scoring draw against Gloucester. They’re 7/4 with Paddy Power to secure their first league win at the third time of asking, and the Bath faithful will be eager for their side to get off the mark sooner rather than later.

Wasps v Leicester

  • Sunday 16th September, 3pm

Injury-Ravaged Wasps Need To Find Their Sting

Four-time champions Wasps suffered semi-final heartache against Saracens last season, and they’ve began their 2018-19 campaign with an injury-ravaged squad, missing some key personnel for their one-point victory over Worcester and 42-31 reverse to Exeter Chiefs. Back-rower Brad Shields is the latest player to be ruled out action for the foreseeable future after suffering a broken cheekbone at Sandy Park, joining the likes of Jimmy Gopperth, Matt Mullan and Simon McInytre on the sidelines. Tussles against their old foes, Leicester Tigers, are always colourful affairs, and the home side are 15/2 with Bet365 to become five-time league winners in the Twickenham sunshine in May.

15/8 Odds For The Tigers To Show Their Teeth

The sacking of Leicester head coach Matt O’Connor after just one game sent shockwaves around the country, but the manner of the Tigers’ toothless 40-6 surrender to Exeter was clearly too alarming for the powers that be at Welford Road, and they decided to act after just 80 minutes into the new season. Club legend and fans favourite Geordan Murphy has been placed in temporary charge in a bid to steady the ship, and the Irishman enjoyed a winning start to his coaching career with a bonus point 49-33 win over Newcastle Falcons. They face another test at the Ricoh Arena, and are 15/8 with Paddy Power to come away with the four points.
