Sunderland vs Gillingham – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Sunderland are targeting their third straight win at home when Gillingham travel north on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Sunderland to Win

Sunderland are undefeated in five games and three of the Black Cats’ matches during their run ended in victory. With the playoff positions back in sight, Sunderland need to keep the foot down to make further strides in the race for promotion and they look primed to claim three points at Gillingham’s expense on Saturday. Sunderland have won two of their last three encounters with the Gills, so expect them to push for another positive result here.

Over 1.5 Sunderland Team Goals

Promotion hopefuls Sunderland scored twice despite having 10-men for the last 20 minutes of the contest when they last played Gillingham in October and back at the Stadium of Light this weekend, the Black Cats look a great bet in the over 1.5 team goals market again. Sunderland have notched at least twice in three of their last five league skirmishes and they have the quality up front to repeat the trick against the Gills.

Sunderland to Win to Nil

Sunderland have tightened up considerably at the back in recent weeks and they have conceded just a single goal in their last five League One assignments combined. Their new mean streak in defence can be capitalised in the markets this weekend with a stake on Sunderland to win to nil against a Gillingham side that rank as the third-least prolific team in the third tier this term.

Sunderland vs Gillingham Match Preview and Team News

Sunderland

Alex Pritchard, Lee Burge, Aiden McGeady and Niall Huggins are listed as potential absentees for Sunderland ahead of the weekend. The Black Cats drew 0-0 at Lincoln City before the international break, though they had claimed victories in three out of four assignments immediately before that.

Gillingham

Gillingham could be without a number of players on Saturday including Robbie McKenzie, Gerald Sithole, Mustapha Carayol, Ben Reeves, Danny Lloyd, Dan Adshead and Alex MacDonald. The Gills are far from safe in League One, though they boosted their surival hopes with a crucial 2-1 win at Accrington Stanley before the international break.
