Gillingham vs Luton
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Priestfield Stadium (Gillingham).
The Gills are 17th in the table, the place where they finished last season. The team is unpredictable in their recent matches, losing games at regular intervals. From 17 league matches, they lost 9 games and conceded 29 goals. They have scored 26 goals which are better than most other teams.
The team from Kent has won 3 of their last 6 matches across all venues. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games. At home, they have a much better run, as they have won 3 of their 5 home games recently. Three of them had a final score of over 2.5 goals also.
After 2 consecutive wins in the league, they lost the last match against Blackpool at home. So this is their fourth consecutive home match and has a chance to redeem themselves for that loss.
Luton is way above their opponents for Saturday in both the pitch and the points table. At the moment they are 5th winning 8 of their 17 matches and have 5 draws also. The team from Luton are in good scoring form with 27 goals while conceding only 19 in the process.
After a 5 match unbeaten streak which had 4 wins in all competitions, they lost a match in the cup. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of their last 6 matches across all venues. But away from is the other way around. They lost and won 2 games in the last 6 games on the road, and those were the only 2 wins in the last 10 away matches. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of the last 5 away fixtures also.
These teams are at two extremes in terms of recent form. So we can expect the team who are at the top half of the table to walk away with 3 points in this upcoming game.

Gillingham vs Luton: Prediction
Luton has lost only once in their last 5 outings in the league. So they are a hard team to beat even when they are not at home. The last game win against Plymouth will have given them an immense boost as it completed a 5 match unbeaten streak in the league. So I think they will win this easily. Thus a bet can be placed on Luton to win with 1.83 odd.
In 11 matches that the visitors played the score had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle, which includes 6 of their 9 away games as well. Half of the games played by the hosts have also had a similar scoreline. Over 2.5 goals were also recorded in 4 of the last 5 h2h matches played in this exact venue. So we can bet on a score of over 2.5 goals with 1.73 odd.
