Saturday’s Championship clash between Millwall and Derby County may not be the most glamorous of encounters, but to the average punter it could provide plenty of worthy bets.
The Lions may have recorded a memorable FA Cup fourth-round replay win away at Championship leaders Southampton in midweek, but life at the New Den has been anything but rosy this season.
Kenny Jackett’s side have won just five of their 15 league games at home thus far and come into the match against Derby having scored just one goal in their last five home games.
Punters expecting their toothless run in front of goal on home soil to continue can back Millwall to fail to score at odds of 13/5, with bwin’s free £25 bet for registering providing returns of £90 if used to successfully back this selection.
Those seeking a more reliable return could find plenty of options from Nigel Clough’s resolute Derby County side.
The Rams have been slow out of the starting blocks over the last few games, with each of their last four goals in Championship matches coming in the second period.
As such, backing Derby to score more in the second half than the first at 19/10 could provide returns of £72.50 for that £25 stake.
The Rams have also averaged exactly one goal a game over their last ten outings in England’s second tier, so backing them to sneak a 1-0 victory at 8/1 certainly looks to be worth a small play.
After all, Clough’s men have made a habit of securing low-scoring wins, with three their last four league victories featuring under 2.5 goals.
With that in mind, odds of 11/2 on Derby winning a game with under 2.5 goals scored is a final potential route into what looks likely to be an important triumph for the Rams on Saturday.
