Top Predictions and Best Odds for Millwall vs Birmingham

Millwall's season is at the crucial stage when they are fighting for a promotion playoffs spot.

Millwall to Win

The good thing for the home team in this Millwall vs Birmingham prediction is that they haven't lost to their next opponent in the last eight matches. The negative aspect of that streak is that five matches ended in a draw. However, this time around Millwall can't accept a split of points because every single point will matter in the last four matches. They only have a three-point advantage over Coventry who is the first team behind the promotion playoffs line. Millwall's form hasn't been the best lately with only one win from their last five matches. Birmingham won two games before going winless in their last three.

Under 2.5 Goals

The most reasonable of picks for the Millwall vs Birmingham match. Millwall has played five straight matches with fewer than three goals scored and they are the fourth-best ‘under' team in the league this season with 27 of those matches played. Birmingham had 24 of those games and four out of the last five. Their h2h record is only slightly better in the direction of over 2.5 goals, they had two out of the last five matches with those kinds of stats.

Millwall vs Birmingham Lineups, Preview, and Team News

Millwall

The home team's season is coming down to the wire. They are holding the fifth spot which is enough to put them through to the promotion playoffs, but with four rounds of matches to go, there is still a chance the team will fail. Thus, they need to remain vigilant in how the team approaches their next matches, especially the one against Birmingham. The hosts have Charlie Cresswell, Callum Styles, and Tyler Burey out through injury.

Provisional lineup: Long, Wallace, Cooper, Hutchinson, McNamara, Saville, Mitchell, Voglsammer, Flemming, Burke, Bradshaw.

Birmingham

The visitors had another disappointing season with only one positive outcome they are not going to be relegated. There were simply too many losses accumulated over the season and no real balance at the forward position to have any significant chance of battling with the best teams in the league. To make matters worse for the upcoming match, there are several injured players: Gary Gardner, Dion Sanderson, Troy Deeney, Josh Williams, Tate Campbell, and Przemyslaw Placheta are unavailable.

Provisional lineup: Ruddy, Colin, Roberts, Long, Trusty, Bacuna, Bielik, Chong, Hall, Khadra, Jutkiewicz.
