Millwall vs West Brom Prediction
Millwall picked up a point last week, following their 3-2 defeat to Leeds, by holding Sheffield Wednesday to a goalless draw on the road. The hosts failed to make much of an impact in that latter matchup though and disappointingly finished the ninety minutes with just two measly shots on target.
Nevertheless, the home team have certainly shown promise in their recent clashes. Impressively, they have stumbled just once in their past seven matchups in the second division.
At the moment, Millwall are sitting ninth on the ladder, nine points behind table-toppers West Brom.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be making the trip to the Den on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Luton at home. The victory was certainly a much-needed breather for the guests who were on a seven-match winless run, up till then.
Furthermore, it is also worth mentioning that West Brom have been a confident bunch on the road this term. Impressively, they have admitted defeat just twice in their outings this season.
Be that as it may, the hosts are sporting a stellar three-match winning streak of their own, at home, as we speak. In addition, West Brom have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past three visits to this stadium.
Given that the guests are also winless in their past three outings on the trot, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Millwall this weekend.
However, the visitors have adamantly salvaged a point at the least in thirteen of their past fifteen trips on the road. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash had also finished as a tie, a double chance would have to be the safest punt in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet, especially in front of the home crowd. In fact, they have found the back of the net two times or more in eight of their last ten games here.
Meanwhile, twenty-one of the fifty-three goals for West Brom this term have come from their clashes on the road. As such, expect over 1.5 goals on the final scorecards, by all means, come Sunday.
