Millwall vs Wigan Athletic Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is live on Sky Sports (behind the red button) and features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall saw their two-game unbeaten run come to an end as they suffered a disappointing 3-1 road loss at fellow strugglers Reading. A Murray Wallace goal was all they had to show in a match that the expected goals data actually feels they were the better team in.

Wigan put their three-game winless sequence behind them with a 1-0 victory over high-flying West Brom. Josh Windass got the only goal of the game to give the Latics a deserved three points.

These two sides were in different divisions last season so you have to go back to the 2015/16 League One season. For what it is worth the London outfit are unbeaten in their last six head-to-heads.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the price here as despite the struggles Millwall have had recently they are still facing a side who are poor travellers and the home side are the price they should be.

Better value can be found in backing both teams to score as this happened in all six league games played at the Den this season. Given nine of the 15 the Latics have scored this campaign have come in the first-half then I think backing them to score in the opening 45 minutes also represents value.

 

YES in the both teams to score market

Millwall Preview

The Lions have won just one of their last ten a run that has seen them drop into the bottom three of the table. They now face an important pair of back-to-back home games and need to start climbing the table.

At the Den, it has been a mixed bag this campaign with two victories, two draws and two defeats. All six the London side have played at their own place have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Millwall are slow starters and have been ahead just two times going into the break and behind on a league high six. Around 60% of the goals they have netted in the league have come in the second-half.

 

Millwall Team News

They have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this fixture.

Wigan Athletic Preview

The Latics have won just one of their last four but a strong start to the season means they still sit in eighth. After this they embark on a tricky run of matches with three teams in the top four in the next three.

Away from the DW Stadium, they have struggled winning one and losing five of their six played. The Lancashire unit have failed to find the back of the net in any of their last four on the road.

Wigan are decent starters with them being behind going into the break on just three occasions this season. Nine of the 15 they have scored in the league have come in the opening half.

 

Wigan Athletic Team News

Gavin Massey (hamstring) is out until January while Will Grigg (also hamstring) is a doubt. Darron Gibson will miss the second of his three game suspension.
