The most likely charge is 3+ because atoms always try to reach their most stable state. For gallium, it's easier for it to become stable by giving up three electrons rather than receiving 5 electrons to complete its 4p shell. That's why most of the elements on the left side of the periodic table give up electrons instead of receiving them.
