Brentford will be aiming to erase their losing run when they contest Millwall at Griffin Park on Saturday. The hosts have been on a downslide after a strong start to the campaign and a winless streak since September sees them just six points off the drop zone. Millwall, meanwhile, have benefited from a solid home run of late but they are still a couple of points behind their opponents for the weekend. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford succumbed to a third-straight league defeat last weekend as they were beaten 1-0 on the road to Norwich City. Emiliano Buendia bagged the winner for the hosts in the 34th minute of the encounter.
Millwall bagged their second straight league win after a comfortable 3-0 win over Ipswich Town. Lee Gregory scored in either half for the South London outfit. The victory was their third successive one in their home patch.
Brentford’s previously faced Millwall at the Den earlier in the year where they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat. The last encounter in their home stadium saw them win by the same scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions expect Brentford to return to winning ways.

Millwall are offering a tempting price of 4.00 for the win but we are not predicting this result despite their recent winning streak. Millwall have found form of late with three wins from four matches but each of those wins have come in their home patch. On their travels, Millwall have managed just two points from seven trips and this form could play into the hands of Brentford, who are yearning for a first win since September. Our preview fancies a home win.

Correct Score odds
Brentford may be going through a difficult period in the Championship but they have managed to score more than once five of their seven matches at home. Millwall’s away run has been dreadful and goals have been at a premium – no goals in four outings. Despite this, Millwall should breach Brentford backline, but the hosts’ attacking prowess should come to the fore to outclass them. Our correct score prediction fancies a Brentford 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since 2006, Brentford and Millwall have contested at Griffin Park on four occasions and three of those matches have resulted in more than two goals. Another open-sided encounter can be anticipated with the hosts excelling in terms of scoring at their stadium, though they remain vulnerable in the defence. Our total goals prediction is to go with more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has been the most productive of the Brentford strikers this term and he is currently leading the league scoring charts with 11 goals from just 13 matches. Among those, just two have come from the previous five appearances but he remains a threat up front with an impressive 74% of his shots on target this term. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Maupay.
