Millwall vs Birmingham Predictions
- Sky Sports Red Button
- Six of Birmingham’s last seven games have produced under 2.5 goals.
- Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 79% Millwall’s home matches this term and in 72% City’s away trips.
- The last eight meetings between the teams have also generated less than three goals including November’s goalless stalemate at St Andrews.
Thriller Unlikely at the Den
The last eight meetings between these sides have produced under 2.5 goals including a dour stalemate at St Andrews in November and we can expect more of the same at the Den this Wednesday night.
Millwall are temptingly priced to bag all three points here after notching consecutive league victories and Gary Rowett’s charges are now unbeaten six (W3, D3). The Lions appear to have turned the corner and will undoubtedly fancy their chances against the second bottom Blues, although City have lost just three of their 14 away trips this season, drawing seven.
Aitor Karanka’s negative tactics regularly contribute to dull affairs as his limited side look to make themselves hard to beat. That hasn’t worked too well in recent weeks with City losing four of their last seven (W1, D2), but six of those games also ended with under 2.5 goals scored.
That’s been the case in ten of their 14 starts on the road this season, so based on that, the nature of recent meetings and all but three of Millwall’s 14 home outings producing under 2.5, backing that outcome this Wednesday is the safe play at odds-on.
The hosts are given the vote to edge this contest though so for correct score players, we’re also forecasting a 1-0 score-line.
