Have a flutter on the Gills and win big with skyBET

With a massive 40 goals last week, it’s odds on for another action packed weekend for Sky Bet League 1 teams. Read on for Title Sponsor, Sky Bet’s, take on Gillingham’s chances this weekend.

Great chance for the first win of the season

The Gills showed great resilience at Swindon on Saturday coming from behind twice to take a point with Danny Kedwell and Cody McDonald on the mark. The home game against Bristol City is a great opportunity for the first three points of the season, but in the betting, the value lies elsewhere.

Promoted teams hosting a bottom-six side like Bristol City at this early stage in the season tend to be low scoring affairs with 56% of games over the past five seasons having less than three match goals.

Furthermore both Gills' home games so far have had fewer than three match goals. Those keen to back the home win may like to know that promoted teams in their first five home games, have won 40% of games in the past five seasons but 70% of the wins have been with the double result of ‘Win/Win’ which can currently be backed at 3/1.
