Gillingham vs Forest Green: Top Free Betting Tips

Gillingham will face Forest Green in a match that should be pre-decided on paper. Nevertheless, you never know in this league and the teams may surprise us. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

This is the perfect fixture for an under bet if we rely on statistics. We have the two weakest attacks in the league against each other. Forest Green have scored 26 goals this season in 26 games and Gillingham have scored only 23. And while Forest Green have been the weakest team this season and have one of the weakest defenses, Gillingham are unlikely to punish them with more than one or two goals. The hosts have been extremely unpredictable all season but one thing remains the same – they can't score goals.

Match Result Prediction: Gillingham to Win

Gillingham have had one of the weirdest seasons to date in the sense that they almost never get draws. They had a tie only twice in 26 games this season, they either win it or lose it. The only consistent thing in their matches has been the lack of goals. Their defense is not bad at all and they often keep a clean sheet but at the same time, they often fail to score too. Forest Green have simply been terrible defensively and concede almost an average of 2 goals per match. They have 7 defeats in 12 away games this season and a goal difference of 12:22.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Gillingham

The home team is never going to get a better opportunity to have a flawless performance and win with more than 1-0 at home. They are facing the weakest team in the league right now. Gillingham are on a streak of three wins in a row and it would be shocking if they somehow fail to win against this particular opponent after beating far more serious teams. When we compare the Gillingham vs Forest Green line ups, the main advantage that the hosts have is in defense.
