One of our GFC Gems previews our game against Notts County and games in the Champions League

Well last week Tequilla began our new `GFC Gems Betting Previews` and this week I have decided to step forward and see if I can better her score.

Sadly she only got one prediction right out of six, so with a bit of luck I can better that and move above her in our own private league table.

First things first, the Gills entertain Notts County this evening in Peter Taylor's second game back as Interim Manager.

With the visitors second bottom of the league table it presents a great chance for us to get back on the winning track, but at the same time, there are no easy games in any league and we can't take them lightly.

I've picked out a couple of tempting markets for tonight's game, and you can take advantage of the `Sky Bet Free Bet Club` by signing up now at

With Chris Whelpdale coming close to scoring his first goal of the season on Saturday, it can't be long before he finally does hit the net.

Sky Bet are offering odds of 11/2 for the midfielder to score first and the Gills to win the game!

If you fancy an early goal, then Cody McDonald is 14/1 to score in the first ten minutes.

Karis Special:

Well the specials this season are likely to be scorecasts more often than not, and I've plumped for the following selection:

Charlie Lee to score first in a 2-0 win - 105/1! Surely that's worth a pound of anybody's money!?

Of course there are several other markets in which to place bets, and you can open your account right now at

Away from League One, the Champions League returns this evening with eight games taking place across four groups.

I've chosen to go with a five fold accumulator, and if you agree with my picks, you can click the link at the bottom to put some money on.

Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund

If you saw the highlights from the Arsenal game on Saturday I think you'll agree that some of the Football played was out of this world.

After defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day they have set a high standard in recent weeks, and it seems there is no let up in their search for perfection.

Arsene Wenger's side take on last season's finalists at the Emirates, and in their current form, I think they'll take a narrow victory.


Marseille v Napoli

Rafa Benitez is the man at the helm at Napoli right now and he's made a decent start in the Italian League, his team sitting second just behind Roma.

Marseille are yet to claim a point in the Champions League this season, and I fancy Napoli to make the short trip and take all three points.


Schalke v Chelsea

I'm finding this one difficult to call as I can't see the home side winning, but it's the sort of game Chelsea could well struggle in.

The German side are fifth in the Bundesliga and going strong in the Champions League having won both of their games, but Jose Mourinho's side are not easy to beat and come in to the game having beaten Cardiff 4-1 at the weekend.

My feeling is that both Managers will happily take a point, and I think that's what the end result will be.

DRAW - 12/5

Celtic v Ajax

Well the hosts need to win tonight to have any hope of staying with Barcelona and AC Milan in Group H.

The Scottish Premier League Giants are currently bottom of their group, and while this is perhaps their most winnable game, I think they may have to settle for a point.

DRAW - 12/5

AC Milan v Barcelona

Two giants of European Football clash at the San Siro this evening with Barcelona unbeaten in Europe and in La Liga so far this campaign, but the atmosphere is likely to give the hosts a small advantage.

Milan won't want to be looking over their shoulders with Celtic and Ajax playing in the other group game, and I'm going for another draw which would put both teams in pole position for qualifying for the knockout phase.

DRAW - 14/5

Should you agree with my selection, then a small bet of £2 will return £521!

You can submit your bet right now at Sky Bet!

I look forward to seeing you all tonight.
