This London derby is very important for Millwall, who snatched a point against Sheffield United to give themselves a huge lift. Even though the team are just two points above the drop, the psychological advantage rests within Millwall as long as the team stays out of the bottom three. Brentford have little motivation to go for a victory and it is not a surprise to see their results slump in recent weeks. Brentford have also picked up one victory in the last five trips to the Den going back to the start of the century. Millwall have also been quite strong at home by winning seven out of their 10 league victories this season. Our preview would pick a win for the hosts.

Correct Score odds
Millwall have scored over 1.5 goals in just one of the last nine league matches at home. They have been unable to get a lot of goals and it is one of the defining factors behind their relegation worries. Meanwhile, Brentford have failed to score in three out of the last four away games. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Millwall 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been less than 2.5 goals in four of the recent five league matches for Millwall, whose London derby against Brentford is likely to be a fierce encounter. Millwall should be able to get the better of physical encounters, but that does not take away anything from the fact that this will be a difficult match. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lee Gregory is the top scorer for Millwall with eight league goals, but he has come up with some underwhelming performances in recent weeks. In contrast, Ben Thompson has been able to produce a string of recent performances of late. Thompson’s impact in the game against Sheffield United was minimal, but he has been in good form of late with three goals in his last five games. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Thompson.
