They will be aiming to enhance their lead. Here are our top Gillingham v Wycombe betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
The away side go into this match with a slight advantage over Coventry City in second place. Only goal difference separates the pair at the time of writing.
There’s still plenty of games left so no one in the Wanderers training camp will be in a rush to dish out the congratulations just now. Having said that, they are in pole position on merit and travel with confidence. They have season stats of four wins, three draws and no defeats on the board, scoring 13 goals and conceding seven.
Their opponents can be found down in 16th place, having won just one game so far, drawn three and losing two. Gills have scored 11 times, so know where the net is. However, they have leaked eight at the other end and that’s something that must be addressed quickly if they are to have any chance of climbing through the ranks. A tighter defence will be the difference between a promotion bid and an uninspiring midtable finish.
Bookmakers have run the rule over this match. They have priced Gillingham as favourites, Unibet handing over a market best price of 6/4 at the time of asking. That’s surprising and will catch the eye of a few value hunters who will be more than happy to take a pop at the league leaders who can be backed at 7/4 with 888Sport. The draw looks lively at 11/5 with 10bet. We’re taking both teams to score in our accumulators at 8/11 – best price at William Hill.
