It’s a hectic week from League One as the season begins to gather pace. Following an interesting round of fixtures in midweek, we are now back into the thick of another weekend. Here are our top Coventry v Gillingham betting tips.
A Closer Look
Followers are guaranteed drama as teams scrap for points, looking to push themselves towards the prize places or distance themselves from the danger area.
Coventry takes on Gillingham in a match of particular importance and this one should keep supporters of both teams on the edge of their seats. Coventry has a long, tough season ahead with as many problems off the field as on it. The players must keep their minds on football but that’s easier said than done. The Sky Blues have started well enough and taken seven points from the first nine available to them.
Locals as Favourites
They beat Bristol Rovers at home last week thanks to goals from Shipley, on the stroke of half-time, and Kastaneer, the latter coming with 82 minutes on the clock. It was a deserved three points and a win that pushed Coventry up to joint-third in the table, two points behind Lincoln and Blackpool who have both enjoyed perfect starts. Will the hosts strengthen their position in this match?
Bookmakers believe so and have the locals priced as favourites to come away with all three points. The pre-match betting is far from convincing, however, as there’s not an awful lot between the teams in terms of the prices. Odds-makers predict a hard-fought contest and we’re happy to follow their thinking on that one. Back the draw as a super single and hope this one follows our thinking. Both sides will be preoccupied with avoiding defeat rather than chasing the win and that should make for a tense afternoon.
