Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Priestfield Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Gillingham and MK Dons, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Gills head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Burton, where they had their chances to score the winner. Gillingham aim to remain undefeated at home ground, and they are surely capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. The Dons, on the other hand, did well to beat promotion-chasing Portmouth in their last league fixture.
MK Dons are undefeated in the previous six games in all competitions, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in the League One Gillingham defeated MK Dons 3-2, but the share of spoils is on the cards this time out as the two teams seem to be evenly matched.
