Birmingham vs Millwall Prediction

Birmingham missed out on a great opportunity the last match-day, to post an away win, against Sheffield Wednesday. The former had been leading 0-1 even at the 81st minute when the home team found the back of the net to equalize the scoreline.

Though Birmingham did try their best to slot in the winner, the home defense stood strong against the onslaught. As a result, the teams shared one point each at the end of the game.

In the meantime, Millwall tried the best they could to secure a win against Wigan the previous game week. Despite their persistent efforts, the team had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home.

Coming to Saturday’s game, Millwall holds a slight advantage due to their current form. They were unbeaten in eight of their last ten overall matches and won three of their previous five. They had also scored two or more goals in six of their last eight games.

Moreover, the team is motivated to make up an extra five points and get into the top-six, which provides an entry into the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Birmingham are winless in their last four fixtures and were so in eight of their last eleven. Importantly, they lost four of the previous five meetings against this opponent, and the last three at this venue.

Considering these factors, anticipate the guests, Millwall, to at the least avoid a loss this weekend.

However, do take into account the home advantage of Birmingham, and their impressive run in front of their fans. Couple this to the struggles of Millwall on the road, and we can deduce that it will not be a one-sided game in favor of Millwall.

Birmingham do have the potential to find the back of the net at least once, and thus, BTTS looks a promising bet.
