Match result prediction – Barrow to win
A winning streak of five games and now home support to bank on means Barrow will be hard to beat in front of home fans at Holker Street. They have won this matchup once and settled for a draw in another clash, noting that there have been only two meetings between these League Two sides. We are tipping a massive home win here. The bookies had Barrow a massive edge with odds of 1.95, which implies a 51% win probability.
Team to score prediction – Both teams to score
In the second Barrow vs Gillingham prediction, our tip is on the team to score. We expect this League Two duel to yield goals on both ends of the pitch. In the two meetings that took place between Barrow and Gillingham, both teams scored. Barrow won their last five games this season while Gillingham could not score in two of their last five, one of which was a match on the road. Moreover, with both sides in the top 7 hence in the promotion race, this should be an interesting clash with goals likely to be scored on both sides.
Correct score prediction – 2-1 to Barrow
In another Barrow vs Gillingham prediction, we have settled on a 2-1 correct score in favour of the hosts. Barrow are 3rd overall while Gillingham occupy the 7th spot in League Two. The hosts have scored 11 in 9 home games, leaking five while Gillingham have rattled the net 7 times in 10 trips, leaking 15 times on the road. We think with such a worrying defensive on the road and both teams performing averagely in scoring goals, a 2-1 correct score is a good betting tip for the game.
