Our prediction for this League 1 match:
MK Dons will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Portsmouth when they take on Gillingham on Matchday 6. The Gills made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Hull City, but the team quickly got back on course. Russell Martin’s men have collected ten points from the previous four league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Buckinghamshire.
The Dons, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a 3-2 win over Stevenage in the EFL Trophy, the team suffered an expected 2-1 loss to Portsmouth in the League One. MK Dons look sharp in front of goal, and given Gillingham’s current form, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score.
