There’s a reduced service in the domestic leagues due to the Euro 2020 qualifiers. England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are all in action. There are a few games from League One and that gives lovers of an accumulator bet an interest on Saturday from 3.00pm. Here are our top Portsmouth v Gillingham betting tips and prediction.
A Closer Look
We focus on Portsmouth v Gillingham in the third tier of English football. This certainly promises to be a thriller. The locals are desperate to push themselves back up through the divisions to the Premier League. However, there’s much work to be done if they are ever to achieve that.
Portsmouth head into this match with a record reading three wins, three draws and three defeats. That’s not the start they had hoped for. However, the team is improving and has won each of its last two. Pompey has a dozen points on the board down in 16th and knows the importance of landing the treble. They are six points above the relegation zone and seven behind the top six promotion places.
A Competitive Match Ahead
Gillingham is one point and one place better off at this stage with their record showing three wins, four draws and four defeats. They have won only one of their last four. However, that victory did come in their most recent start and they’ll fancy their chances of rattling a Portsmouth side who are low on confidence.
The home win has been marked up at 8/13 with Bet365. There’s also a tempting 9/2 with the same company for the away win. A draw is yours at 11/4. This should be competitive, but Gillingham looks to have been overpriced. We’ll take a shot at the value for interest stakes.
