Be a winner this weekend with top tips from Sky BetThere were five away victories last weekend in Sky Bet League 1, but will the away sides pull off more shocks again this week? Read on for Sky Bet's take on Gillingham's chances this weekend.
Gills look to take advantage of off form Crewe
The Gills will be looking to the power of Adebayo Akinfenwa to fire them to victory against an inconsistent Crewe side. The former Northampton striker is a fantastic 2/1 to add to his two goals this season on Saturday.
Gillingham will play with a defensive set up as they look to counter attack on Crewe's defensive frailties. This should be a close fought encounter and you can back both sides to be level at the break at an appealing 6/5.
This has been the case in four of Gillingham’s last five matches, and also in 14 of Crewe’s last 25 games at home.
Gillingham have had some tough matches to start the season, with just two of their opponents to date lying in the bottom half. However, they will be confident of getting a result at Crewe. The Railwaymen are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and Gillingham have picked up points in three of the five matches they’ve scored in. The double chance of draw or away win is worth a look here at 4/7.
Other reasons to bet:
• Gillingham have had over 2.5 goals in their last four away matches 4/5
• The Gills have had both teams scoring in five of their last six matches 8/13
• Gillingham have had more goals in the first half of three of their last four games 2/1
