Stoke vs Millwall Prediction
Stoke pulled off their biggest win of the season yet in the Championship last week by running riot over Huddersfield on the road with a thumping 5-2 scorecard. Disappointingly though, the hosts have been alternating between wins and defeats in their last six games in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss at the hands of Brentford in the FA Cup.
It is also worth mentioning that the home side are currently just a point shy of falling into the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Millwall have been faring a lot better in their respective campaign. The visitors have been recording back to back wins in their past two games in the second division, and have stumbled just once in their last nine as well.
However, the guests have been at the losing end in each of their previous four visits to this stadium. Furthermore, Stoke are finally starting to show signs of promise at home. At the moment, they are unbeaten in their past three fixtures here and have garnered seven points a possible nine.
As such, the hosts are sizing up to be the favorites to come away with the win. Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have not admitted defeat in their last five outings.
Given that they have also managed at least a share of the spoils six times already on the road, the safest punt to back would have to be a Draw no Bet.
Additionally, goals have been hard to come by whenever these two sides square up against each other. Four of their previous five h2h meetings here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecard.
Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a low scoring affair, count on neither side to rack up the goals scoring charts this weekend.
