Gillingham vs Blackpool

Midweek League One action returns on Tuesday evening and an all-important clash between Steve Lovell’s Gillingham and Terry McPhillips’ Blackpool is set to go ahead at Priestfield Stadium. The hosts, who are priced at 19/10 with Bet365 to win here, have won their last two matches on home turf – beating Bradford 4-0 and Fleetwood 3-0 and have been in fine form whilst doing so. Both wins were very much needed after a winless run which had been stretched to four matches in all competitions and just one win in the third-tier all season prior to that. They face a tough task against the side they last beat back in 2015 this week and a team in Blackpool who sit just four spots above them in 13th, but also by four points. The travelling side have lost back-to-back games in the league against Fleetwood and Bristol Rovers, with both games seeing the former Premier League side concede three goals. They certainly looked better in midweek last week against Arsenal in the EFL Cup and despite being beaten 2-1, that’ll be the type of away performance they hope to emulate this week and a win for Blackpool is 17/11 with William Hill, whilst the draw is 12/5 with the same bookmaker. Both teams have a couple of wonderful players in their sides who have often saved them in matches. Gillingham’s main man has been Tom Eaves this term, with the target man having bagged 11 goals in 16 matches and four in his last two. In the travelling team, main man Nathan Delfouneso only has three goals in 15 matches, but is still the clear threat here and the 27-year-old to score in 90 minutes here is an intriguing price of 12/5 with Bet365. We also think over 2.5 goals in this match is a good bet, with both sides’ last three matches having had at least three goals. Another three goals in this tie is evens with Unibet, whilst over 3.5 goals is 23/10 with Betway.

Walsall vs Charlton Athletic

Walsall welcome Charlton to the Bescot Stadium on Tuesday evening as tenth plays eighth in what could be a hugely important match for the playoff race. A win for either side could get them into the top six, but it’s Lee Bowyer’s Charlton who come into the tie off the back of a magnificent 2-0 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Doncaster Rovers at the Valley last weekend. A win for the second time in four days for Athletic here is an attractive 13/10 with William Hill and having not been beaten by Walsall since 2011, they’ll be full confident of achieving what would be a massive victory here. Dean Keates’ Walsall will be hoping their third-straight game at Bescot can see them pick up their second win in ten days, but they’ll have to bounce back from what was an embarrassing 3-1 defeat to the hands of Burton Albion last weekend, which was evidence of what has been somewhat of an inconsistent season. A win for the Saddlers is priced at 21/10 with Betway, whilst their fifth draw of the campaign can be found at odds of 5/2 with Bet Victor. An average season for both sides could’ve easily been a lot worse had some of their impressive players not turned up throughout the season. Walsall’s talisman Andy Cook has shown glimpses of a good striker this term, with five goals in 16 – but the 28-year-old hasn’t done it on a consistent basis and he’ll be hoping to change that this week. Like Cook, who is priced at 5/1 to score first with Sky Bet, Morgan Ferrier has also been lively with three goals this season and the forward to grab one in 90 minutes here is 15/8 with Sky Bet. Charlton’s main men lie in the form of Lyle Taylor, who has eight goals this season and a goal ratio of one in every other game, whilst youngster Karlan Ahearne-Grant has eight also and he’ll be hoping to edge in front of his teammate with another goal here.

Recommended bet: Over 2.5 goals at 1/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE
