Peterborough to Win
Although Gillingham is a good team and they can put up a fight against anyone in League One, Peterborough is better and in much better form at the moment. We expect to see this form continue, so our prediction is Peterborough to win. Furthermore, Peterborough has won four of the last five head-to-head matches against Gillingham, usually with at least a two-goal difference, so that's another reason to bet on them.
Total Goals Over 2.5
We expect to see goals in this game since both teams are at around 2.74 goals per match, which puts them in the top 10 in the league in the number of goals scored in their matches. In addition to this, Peterborough scores 2.35 goals per match in home games, while Gillingham scores 1.43 goals in away games. Lastly, three of their last five h2h duels have gone over 2.5 total goals.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
We've already explained why we expect to see more than a few goals in this game, but we also expect both teams to score here. This happened in three of the last five meetings between Peterborough and Gillingham, and we don't see a reason why it couldn't happen again in this match.

Peterborough vs Gillingham preview: Can Peterborough make another step towards promotion?
With five games to go, Peterborough is looking certain for a promotion to the Championship since they have an eight-point advantage over the closest rivals, Sunderland. Of course, nothing is certain yet and Peterborough needs to get more points from the remaining matches to ensure this scenario. Luckily for them, they are in great form with five wins and a draw in the last six league games – including a 7-0 demolition of Accrington. Flynn Clarke is out of this match and the rest of the season due to a serious injury.
And while Peterborough still has reasons to fight, Gillingham is positioned in the middle of the standings with little chance of going up . They are six points behind the spot that leads to the playoffs, but if we are being realistic, getting to the playoffs would be a small miracle. The team is also in bad form with two losses and a draw in the last three games. Morton, Magmoha, and Slattery are out or doubtful for the upcoming match due to injuries.
