Millwall are the 11/10 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market for the visit of Watford in the Championship this evening.
The Lions sit in 18th place, just one point and two places above their latest opponents at the New Den, who are priced at 12/5, with the draw an 11/5 chance.
A 1-1 draw against Southampton in the FA Cup at the weekend kept Millwall’s mini-revival going and are they now unbeaten in three games (albeit with two of those coming in the cup).
Their last Championship home match was a 6-0 thrashing by Birmingham and that followed a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace, but they did beat Barnsley 3-1 in their last league game on the road.
Meanwhile, Watford have struggled all season and their recent away form is very poor.
They have failed to score in seven of their last nine trips outside the comforts of Vicarage Road and picked up just five points in that time – a 2-1 win at Ipswich Town the only positive.
The Hornets battled very well in their recent FA Cup clash with Tottenham and didn’t deserve to be beaten 1-0. Goals have been a real problem for them of late, though, and just two away wins all season illustrates this.
Watford have won the last three meetings between these two sides and last time they visited the New Den they strolled to a 6-1 victory – but don’t expect such a high-scoring affair this evening.
Millwall have actually failed to score in six of their last eight Championship matches, although star man Darius Henderson has scored seven in his last three.
Looking at Watford’s recent form, a bet on them not to score must be considered at 31/20, while they are 9/20 to find the net anytime in the match. If you fancy a Millwall win to nil that can be backed at 23/10.
Both these sides struggle for goals so 25/4 about a 0-0 draw could tempt a few punters, but I particularly like the look of under 1.5 goals at 39/20.
