Sky Bet preview the Gills League One match against Sheffield United at MEMS Priestfield StadiumGillingham looked in some trouble at the turn of the year but after two wins and a draw, the situation has improved.
For three points here they are priced at 11/4 against high-flying Sheffield United who are even-money to win. A share of the spoils is 12/5.
Nigel Clough’s men faced an FA Cup Fourth Round replay on Tuesday, which they lost at home 3-1 to Preston. Could the extra rest play into Gillingham’s hands as they look to extend their run of improved form?
It’s still possible that they could make the play-offs being only seven points behind their opposition going into the game, although Sky Bet’s price of 250/1 (compared to the 4/1 quote for the visitors) tells its own story.
In the last six Sky Bet League 1 games at the Priestfield Stadium there have been 27 goals. With that in mind, an ambitious bet, could be to back both sides to score during both halves of the match.
Top Tip: Both teams to score in both halves at 18/1.
