Bolton Wanderers vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (20:00) fixture features two sides in need of points at opposite ends of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Bolton suffered a third successive defeat at the weekend going down on their travels 3-0 to Derby.  The expected goals data suggests that the two sides were extremely close but it was the Rams who brought their shooting boots.

Millwall stretched their unbeaten run to 15 matches with a 2-0 defeat of Bristol City in their last fixture.  Jed Wallace and Steve Morison got the goals that their performance deserved to keep their play-off dreams alive.

The reverse fixture came in August and it ended in a 1-1 draw with George Saville netting for the Lions and Filipe Morais for the Trotters.  It means that Wanderers are now unbeaten in their last eight meetings with the London side.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given their wonderful form I could not put anyone off backing Millwall who are flying while Bolton are slumping.  The note of caution I would give is these two sides know each other well and while I don’t read too much into head-to-heads these sides have recent meetings under the same managers and Phil Parkinson and Wanderers tend to do well.

Each of the last four meetings between the duo have seen two goals so try an interest on this fixture to have exactly two or three goals.  In addition, a draw does not help either side so backing the game to have more goals in the second-half also makes sense.

 

Exactly two or three goals in this game

Second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes
