Millwall are priced at 3.25 for a victory but we are not anticipating this result based on their recent winless streak. Millwall have always made it difficult for their opponents when they make the trip to the Den but this has not been the case this term with just one victory in four attempts. As such, we are backing the away side to pick up three points as they have a vastly superior record in terms of the goal scoring this term. Our preview fancies a victory for Sheffield.
