Millwall remain very close to the drop even as they welcome Birmingham City to the Den in the midweek action. Neil Harris’ men are outside the bottom three only on goal difference but Birmingham have been able to pull away a quite a lot from this position. Gary Monk’s team were expected to go through a six-pointer in games against Millwall but this lofty position is a testament to their recent run. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Millwall are winless in three matches after only managing a 1-1 draw with Bolton at home. After having trailed for a majority of the game, Millwall received a huge boost with the late equaliser.
Birmingham City are also winless in three matches as the team slumped to a 4-2 defeat against local rivals Aston Villa at Villa Park. This was the second defeat in three games for Birmingham, who had previously gone on an 11-game unbeaten streak.
The recent game between Millwall and Birmingham produced a 1-0 success for the former at the St Andrew’s Stadium. Millwall also picked up a victory – with a 2-0 score – in the recent meeting at the Den. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Birmingham are given a price of 3.60 for a victory while Millwall are at a slightly short 3.40. Yet, both these choices do not represent great value. Both teams have experienced a recent dip in results. Even though Millwall are extremely strong at home with only two losses in nine, Birmingham are more than capable of bouncing back quickly from the recent defeat against Aston Villa. The Den has also handed Birmingham with a couple of memorable results a few years ago. Our preview would back a draw.

Millwall win odds: 3.40
Birmingham City win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Both games between the two teams during the 2017-18 campaign witnessed a clean sheet for Millwall. However, it may be extremely difficult to contain Birmingham in this match. Gary Monk’s team have the second-best offensive record in the division with only Norwich bettering their return of 12 goals in the last six matches. Millwall can be expected to put up a good show defensively and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-2 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Millwall have been able to keep out most opposition at bay when it comes to matches at the Den. The recent game with Bolton is the first of five games at the Den to end up with less than 2.5 goals. Birmingham have been on a rich goalscoring form and our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 2.10[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Lukas Jutkiewicz remains as one of the top scorers in the 2018-19 Championship campaign after he moved up to 10 goals for the campaign following the goal against Aston Villa. The 29-year-old has been able to score in six out of his last nine games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Lukas Jutkiewicz.
