Huddersfield vs Millwall: Our top betting tips
Millwall are showing some really good form at the moment and find themselves in sixth place. Will they keep that impressive run going here? Find out with our Huddersfield vs Millwall match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Sitting on the fence
We kick off our tips for this match by backing the draw. Millwall have been really good of late having collected 13 points from their last five games. With that noted, it's worth pointing out that their home form is considerably stronger than their away; 21 of their 26 points have been earned at The Den. Huddersfield meanwhile have a general form that reads as just one win in five, which is obviously not even close to the sort of points return Millwall have, however, they've won two of their last three home games. With Millwall dominating on the form side but Huddersfield holding home advantage, we see a share of the spoils.
A low scoring match
Our next tip for this match is an under 2.5 goal prediction. Huddersfield have seen four of their last five home games fall south of the 2.5 cut off with just eight goals scored across that period; that's just 1.6 per match. Millwall meanwhile have seen three of their last five away games go under 2.5 goals with a game average of just 2.4. Each of the last three head to head meetings have also come in with fewer than three goals in them.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Huddersfield vs Millwall
Will Millwall keep up strong run?
Millwall's recent run of good form has pushed them into the top six whilst Huddersfield sit rock bottom of the table. If the Lions are serious about their aspirations of mixing it up in the playoff places then they need to be winning games like this. Equally, should Huddersfield lose to a Millwall side that have one of the worst away records in the league then their relegation fears will look to be very, very real.
Huddersfield will be hoping to build on their 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough last time out and in order to do that they're unlikely to make too many changes to the XI although Jordan Rhodes could come into the reckoning for Danny Ward with goals proving hard to come by. Several players, including Will Boyle and Jonathan Hogg, remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Huddersfield Predicted lineup – Nicholls, Nakayama, Helik, Lees, Turton, Camara, Kasumu, Thomas, Holmes, Rudoni, Rhodes
Ryan Leonard is Millwall's only absentee for this game; the midfielder is nearing a return to fitness though. Not that it particularly matters though because the way this side is playing right now he'll struggle to get any minutes on the pitch. Expect an unchanged XI from the Lions' win over West Brom last time out.
Millwall Predicted lineup – Long, McNamara, Hutchinson, Cooper, Malone, Shackleton, Mitchell, Styles, Flemming, Voglsammer, Bradshaw
