Tip Reasoning

Millwall and Southend are two teams who’re very much in form right now and are also two sides who’re well in the play-off hunt. They’ve lost just once between them in their last ten combined and, in truth, this is a hard fixture to predict in terms of a winner. Although Millwall have acquitted themselves very well on home turf lately, Southend have made a habit of being hard to beat on the road.

The bet to go for ahead of this fixture is ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ at odds of 1/1. With such little between the two sides, it’s though that this match could be case of both avoiding defeat rather than going all out to win. Each will be very wary of the threat carried by the other and, therefore, probably won’t want to give anything away.

A major pointer here is the fact that both have been pretty sound at the back recently. Southend have kept three clean sheets in their last five away outings, while Millwall can boast four shut-outs in their last five at The Den. On top of this, Southend have kept a clean sheet in 38% of their away matches this season, while Millwall have kept a clean sheet in 36% of their home matches.

The fact that there’s just two points separating these two in the League One table suggest that they are very closely matched indeed. This doesn’t appeal as a match where the goals will arrive in any great number and things are fancied to pan out in very tentative, “cat and mouse” nature. On this basis, backing a lack of goals is the way to go at The Den on Saturday afternoon.
