Birmingham City will be aiming to return to winning ways when they welcome Millwall to St Andrew’s on Wednesday night. The West Midlands outfit have recently stumbled to successive losses and this has dropped them five points off the top-six places. Millwall are lying at the tailend of the standings with a losing run of their own and they are above the relegation places by the single point. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Birmingham succumbed to a second successive league defeat after they were downed 1-0 by arch-rivals Aston Villa. Jack Grealish netted the winning strike for the Villains in the 67th minute of the derby.
Millwall, meanwhile, failed to secure a point for the fourth straight game after a 2-1 loss to Bolton Wanderers on the road. Pawel Olkowski and Gary O’Neil found the net for Bolton before Lee Gregory’s consolation strike.
The previous meeting between the clubs occurred at the Den in November where Birmingham won 2-0. The last encounter at St Andrew’s Stadium witnessed a 1-0 triumph for Millwall 13 months ago. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a Birmingham win.

Millwall are given odds of 3.60 for a return to winning ways but we don’t predict this outcome with their dreaded form of late. The south London outfit have gone without picking up a point for fourth straight matches and this should provide Birmingham with the advantage despite their recent trend of back-to-back losses. Our preview is to go with a Birmingham win.

Birmingham City vs Millwall draw odds: 3.25
Millwall win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Both teams have netted five times in as many matches in the Championship but Millwall have shown the better consistency by scoring in each of those games. Still, Birmingham possess the better attacking prowess with Che Adams in their ranks and we are fancying them to outscore the visitors in an open encounter. Our correct score prediction would back a Birmingham 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Birmingham have struggled for clean sheets since the turn of the year and this has resulted in 60% of their matches producing more than two goals. This trend may continue against Millwall, who should test their backline after scoring in each of the previous five games. Our total goals prediction favours more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Che Adams has been instrumental to the club’s league campaign and he has netted 21 goals to date. Out of those, the 22-year-old has netted just twice in the past five appearances but he should still pose a threat to the Millwall backline, which has looked vulnerable on the road. Adams has scored with every other shot on target. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Adams.
