Gillingham vs Leyton Orient Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Gillingham vs Leyton Orient will be a curious game between two very familiar teams. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

We expect a very competitive match despite the fact that we have two teams from different leagues. Leyton Orient got promoted to League One but their performances have been terrible since the start of the season and we do not think that they are on the necessary level. They have not scored a lot of goals and their defense concedes multiple times per game, almost weekly. This will be a closer match than expected.

Match Result Prediction: Gillingham to Win

Gillingham are in the lower league and their form has not been great lately. Nevertheless, the difference to Leyton Orient is not huge and they have a great record against this team at home. Gillingham won four games in a row at home against Leyton Orient over the last few years, including the previous season. We think that there is a good chance that it will happen again here.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Gillingham

We expect a close and competitive match but we believe that the scoreline will be a low one and Gillingham have a better chance to win this game. The team recently beat Southampton in the EFL Cup, so their home form truly is as good as always and Leyton always struggle at this stadium. When we compare the Gillingham vs Leyton Orient line ups, we think that there isn't a huge difference between the two teams.

Gillingham vs Leyton Orient Team Previews

Gillingham Preview

Gillingham had an exceptional start in League Two this season with four consecutive wins. However, right now, they seem to be out of shape and are coming into this match with three consecutive defeats. This is a good opportunity for them to step up their game and win a match for an important tournament before the next round in a week. They are a strong home side but their attack is not very effective right now.

Leyton Orient Preview

Leyton Orient finally got promoted to League One after several struggling seasons but their performances have not been impressive. They have the weakest defense in the entire League One out of 24 teams right now. Moreover, their attack has also been terrible and ranks in the three weakest. They have to improve but we think that their away performances will continue to be a huge issue this year.
