BETTING PREVIEW: Coventry City 6/4 favourites to beat Gillingham in their SkyBet League One clash on Saturday

15 January 2015

Sky Blues are marginal favourites to do the double over the Gills and if you fancy a flutter, SkyBet have you well covered…

Coventry City take on Gillingham at Priestfield in a SkyBet League One clash on Saturday and SkyBet have all the odds covered if you fancy getting in on the action.

The Sky Blues are 6/4 favourites to win the game, with the Gills having fractionally longer odds at 7/4. The draw is priced at 23/10.

Coventry won the first game between the two 1-0 in what was the Sky Blues' first game since returning to the city. They are priced at 7/1 to repeat the scoreline.

Frank Nouble was the man who got the goal on that famous night and he is 13/2 to open the scoring and get his first goal since signing permanently for the club.

Gary Madine is 6/1 favourite to break the deadlock for City, with midfielders John Fleck at 11/1 and James Maddison at 16/1 offering longer odds for greater potential returns.

For the hosts, former Sky Blue Cody McDonald will be looking to spoil the day for his former club and he is 11/2 favourite to score first for the Gills.

Luke Norris is 6/1, with Ben Dickenson and John Marquis priced at 7/1 to open the scoring.

City will be looking to bounce back from Monday's disappointing result against Swindon and they will have to play well to do so. However Gillingham have not been in any great form as of late and have three clean sheets in their last five away league games. I fancy them to do the same again Saturday.

In a new feature, our resident Sky Blues Tipster will be placing a £10 bet on his Hot-tip, as well as £10 to place on his longshot. We will be tracking his profits (or losses!) over the course of the season so you can see where you would be if you followed his tips!

The Tipster continued his winning streak with his hot tip of over 2.5 goals coming in at evens on Monday night. Can he make it 3 winning bets in a row?
