Millwall have been cut in bwin's Championship relegation odds

Millwall vs Everton: Lions can challenge Toffees in FA Cup

Kick-off: 1730, 26/01/2019

Stadium: The Den

TV: BBC One

Millwall have generally been playing well in the Championship of late and are fancied to give Everton a tough test in the FA Cup.

Toffees boss Marco Silva looks to be taking this competition seriously after fielding a strong team in the last round, so a close encounter could be on the cards at The Den.

We reckon 27/10 for a draw is the way to go with our opening Millwall vs Everton prediction.

A Look At Millwall’s Betting Odds

Millwall put together a run of three straight league wins before Shane Ferguson’s double helped them come from behind to beat Hull 2-1 in this tournament here.

The Lions then blotted their copybook by losing 2-0 at home to Blackburn, but Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough was a fine response.

Jordan Hugill’s 90th-minute penalty cancelled out a first-half strike from Jed Wallace, but Neil Harris was proud of his players’ efforts.

He said: “It was a performance with energy, character, discipline, ability on the ball; you won’t see many better away performances at Middlesbrough this season.”

Millwall beat three Premier League teams when reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup a couple of years ago and are a far better side than 19th place in the Championship suggests.

Looking at the Millwall vs Everton odds, we like 13/2 for a 1-1 stalemate, just as it was when these teams met at The Den back in 2006.

A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds

Everton were being touted as dark horses for a top-six finish in the Premier League a couple of months ago, but have been dogged by inconsistency since.

Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Southampton was their fifth defeat in seven games in that division, with Gylfi Sigurdsson’s stoppage-time strike little more than a consolation.

An expensively-assembled squad is not yet realising its expected potential and Silva admitted: “Southampton totally deserved the win.

“They were more aggressive than us. They were faster than us in some moments also. This is something for us to learn for these type of games and how to approach them.”

The Toffees did romp to a 5-1 triumph at Burnley on Boxing Day, so there is always the chance that they will turn it on and prove a class apart here.

However, only edging out Lincoln 2-1 in the last round highlights how players can struggle to maintain such intensity against lower-ranked teams.

We feel Silva may settle for taking the Lions back to Goodison Park, so 17/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time completes our Millwall vs Everton betting tips.
