Neil Harris aims to get Millwall to a positive conclusion in the Championship when they go up against Bristol City at the Den in the midweek action. Millwall were able to secure safety after the stalemate with Stoke City during the weekend. Bristol’s promotion hopes are still alive even if the team are four points behind the top six places. Lee Johnson’s men may have left themselves with too much to do in the final weeks. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Millwall picked up a crucial point to secure Championship safety after a goalless draw with Stoke City at home. Millwall have lost only once in the recent six league outings.
Bristol City suffered a decisive blow in the race to get promoted after a 2-0 defeat against Derby County at the Ashton Gate. Derby made the most of Semenyo’s second-half red card.
Bristol and Millwall played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse meeting at the Ashton Gate. Millwall’s last home game against Bristol produced a 2-0 success at the Den. Our betting tips and predictions would back a draw.

Bristol will be crushed after the loss against Derby, as the team only has an outside chance of getting a place in the top six. Bristol will have to depend on Middlesbrough and Derby losing the rest of the games. Even then, Bristol may have to pick up victories in both of their remaining encounters. This may be very difficult considering that Millwall have lost only six league matches at home all season long. The Den is a very difficult ground for visitors and our preview would go with a stalemate.

Millwall win odds: 3.60
Bristol City win odds: 2.15
Correct Score odds
Bristol have been able to manage just under 1.5 goals per match in recent away matches. The club have not been scoring enough goals of late. Meanwhile, Millwall may have managed less than a goal per game at home but the club’s defence has been quite stellar. Our correct score prediction would opt for the same 1-1 draw as in the reverse fixture.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have not been any high-scoring meetings between Bristol and Millwall in the recent six encounters and one has to go back to 2013 in order to witness the high-scoring encounter between these two clubs. Bristol will be dejected coming into the game, while Millwall’s strong defence – especially in home games – can help them keep out Johnson’s men. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Famara Diedhiou has to be on song if Bristol are to get a victory in the game. The forward has been in decent form in the second half of the campaign. He has been able to get six goals since the turn of the year. Crucially just two goals have been in home matches with the rest coming in away games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Famara Diedhiou even if Millwall could be very physical.
