Middlesbrough v Millwall Betting Odds*
Middlesbrough 19/20, Draw 11/5, Millwall 11/4* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 3:09 a.m.)
Middlesbrough News and Form
Middlesbrough still have a shot at a play off spot and a home win in this one could get them there. Boro took a good away win at Derby last weekend to keep themselves in the top six and they have won three of their last four games now so are finishing the season somewhat strongly. Their home record this season is W13 D3 L6 and they are undefeated in their last two. They have found the back of the net in each of their last seven home games and have scored at least two in each of their last two at the Riverside. This is a tough game against a good Millwall side though and the shortest priced option in the bet365 correct score market is a 1-1 draw at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 3:09 a.m.). Boro have done very well defensively on home soil having conceded just 17 goals in their 22 home games and they have taken a clean sheet in 45% of their home fixtures. Because of the pressure riding on this one it probably makes sense to just look under 2.5 goals. Currently home and away combined Boro have scored in each of their last twelve league games now.
Millwall News and Form
How costly will Millwall’s home loss against Fulham on the weekend prove to be? That stopped their huge momentum having gone unbeaten in their previous seventeen league games. They were on fire and had played their way into the top six but now face a tricky away game in which to try and recover. Millwall have not won away at any of the current top eleven sides this season (D5 L4) so their away record isn’t that great in the big games. Their overall away form is W7 D8 L7 this season and they are still on a great nine-match undefeated streak of away form in the league. They have been strong lately and the Lions have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four away games. Their loss at Fulham on the weekend snapped a fourteen match scoring streak that they were on. They are still on a ten-match scoring streak away from The Den though but this should be a tight fixture and under 2.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 2:56 a.m.). There is still a tight race ahead with just the two games remaining. Can Millwall keep themselves in the hunt with three points?
Middlesbrough v Millwall Head to Head
Millwall were 2-1 home winners over Middlesbrough when they met in mid-December and things are pretty even between the two from recent head to heads. In the last five meetings, Boro are 3-2 ahead but they have won just one of their last five home games in league action against the Lions (W1 D1 L3). Each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Middlesbrough v Millwall Predictions
It can be a tough thing to pick yourself up once your unbeaten bubble has been burst and that is the problem that Millwall face. This isn’t an easy game on the road for them as Boro have a lot at stake as well. A rare draw between the two of them may be worth backing because the pressure is going to be on.
