Millwall hope to get out of the bottom three when they entertain Wigan at the Den in the midweek action. The Londoners dropped into the bottom three after only managing 10 points from the 13 games this season. Wigan now sit just outside the play-offs with a one-point difference separating them from the likes of Norwich and Derby County. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Millwall were well beaten by Reading, who secured a 3-1 victory at the Madejski Stadium. The home win over Aston Villa ranks as the only success for Millwall in the last 10 league games.
Wigan were able to secure their first win in four games after a strong performance against promotion candidates West Brom at the DW Stadium. This was the second 1-0 win for Wigan in the last three home games.
Millwall were involved in a goalless draw with Wigan when the teams last met each other in 2016 and this meeting was at the Dens Park. The most recent meeting at the DW Stadium was in 2015 with the two teams playing out a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Millwall.

Wigan are given a price of 3.10 to win this match. Yet, this may not be an attractive price for a club that has been on the losing side in five of their six away games this season. Millwall also go through a similar away form but Neil Harris’ men are quite decent at home. After falling back into the bottom three, Millwall will be desperate to get out of the drop zone in order to avoid a psychological disadvantage; home games are a perfect solution in order to overcome the recent poor run. I would back a win for Millwall.

Millwall vs Wigan Athletic draw odds: 3.50
Wigan Athletic win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Wigan have been quite slow in building chances and taking them. It is not a surprise to see the team average just over the goal per game from the first 13 matches. This average dips when it comes to away games. Millwall are not outstanding even at home but their recent games have involved goals at both ends as Harris has been unable to stop his team conceding goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Millwall 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wigan may not be a renowned goalscoring outfit in away games, but they may have the ability to capitalise on Millwall’s poor defensive run that largely been responsible for the club dropping into the bottom three. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lee Gregory has been Millwall’s top scorer with three league goals. Even though the 30-year-old has been unable to score in his last two games, he has been in decent form over the last month. Even though the forward has been unable to score in four games against Wigan, our first goalscorer prediction sees his recent form as a reason to expect the opening goal from his boots.
