Millwall vs Nottingham Forest: Our top betting tips

Nottingham Forest claimed quite the scalp in last weeks FA Cup third round as they beat Arsenal but can they follow that up with a win at the Den? Find out with our Millwall vs Nottingham Forest match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Calling it even

Neither of these teams has drawn within their last five outings but we can't see this one ending any other way. Millwall have been indifferent with two wins and three draws in their last five games whilst Nottingham Forest have the mirrored image of that form with three wins and two defeats. With inconsistency of results a problem for both sides, we see them sharing the points here. It wouldn't be a huge turn up for the books either because three of the last five head to heads between these two sides have ended level.

We will see goals

Depending on which team you look at, you could come up with different predictions for the over/under goals market. As it stands though, we're backing this to go over 2.5 goals. Nottingham Forest are the side that put a little doubt on that with their last three games all going under 2.5. That said, Millwall's form more than makes up for it with four of their past five games all going over the required 2.5 threshold. Three of the most recent five head to head matches have passed the 2.5 mark too with the average goals per game across that five match run sitting at 3.0.

Millwall vs Nottingham Forest: It's predicted lineup time

We've not been able to separate these teams in our predictions and there is little to separate their story in the Championship table either right now. Both are on the very periphery of the playoff race without really threatening to get involved owing to inconsistent form. Can either start a run of momentum by winning here?

Millwall Predicted Lineup

If we're talking about the current predicament Millwall find themselves in we could probably just copy and paste it below for their visitors because the Championship is so tight. Form has been lacking but a good run – if they can put one together – would see them challenge for the top six.

Predicted lineup – Bialkowski, Hutchinson, Pearce, Cooper, Wallace, Saville, Mitchell, McNamara, Ojo, Afobe, Bradshaw

Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineup

See above. That's not actually all we're going to say, of course, although it is a similar challenge Forest have ahead. Their form has been inconsistent but if they can use their FA Cup win as a springboard then there is every chance they can get into a hunt for a playoff finish.

Predicted lineup – Samba, Worrall, Cook, McKenna, Spence, Yates, Garner, Colback, Johnson, Davis, Grabban
