Betting Tips for the game

Wednesday fell to a 2-0 defeat against Brentford at Griffin Park during the weekend. The 1-1 draw with Hull City has led to the club’s only point this season.

Millwall were able to pick up a 2-1 win over Derby County to further complicate the first managerial job for Frank Lampard. Millwall are yet to suffer a league defeat in this campaign.

Both teams were able to get a 2-1 win in their respective home matches during the 2017-18 campaign. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Match odds

Millwall are at odds of 2.50 while Wednesday are surprisingly at a price of 3.10 – despite being the hosts. Millwall have been unbeaten in the Championship so far, but two of their three matches have been at home. The only away game for Millwall finished as a draw. After having drawn two out of the last three visits to the Hillsborough stadium, Millwall are in a good position to get something out of this game. Wednesday are also struggling for form and they are among the few teams yet to achieve a league victory this season. Our preview would back a draw.

Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 3.10

Millwall win odds: 2.50

Correct Score odds

The entertaining nature of this fixture cannot be overlooked, as the last meeting between Wednesday and Millwall at the Hillsborough that witnessed either one of the teams being unable to score was back in 2002. Since then, there have been goals at both ends whenever these two teams meet each other at the Hillsborough stadium and our correct score prediction does not expect a difference in this regard. We would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The Millwall outfit may have made a positive start to the season, but the team has still managed a paltry return of four goals in the three league matches so far. They have been unable to score over 2.5 goals in any of the last five away matches against Wednesday, who have also endured a similar run in four of those games. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Fernando Forestieri broke his duck against Millwall back in 2013-14 when he was playing for Watford. Since then, he has been unable to play against the London outfit. Now, the 28-year-old is looking to add to his return of two goals this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Forestieri.
