Market: Aston Villa to beat Millwall
Odds: 21/10 @ Bet365
With the Championship table reaching the end of the season, English football’s second division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, Millwall will know nothing less than three points and a miracle will see them make the playoffs.
For the hosts on Sunday afternoon, despite a stellar late push leaving Millwall dreaming off back to back promotions, a recent slump has all but shattered their playoff hopes. After 45 Championship games this season, Millwall have won 18, drawn 15 and lost 12, scoring 55 and conceding 45. With a points tally of 70, Millwall now find themselves sat eighth in the table and with one game to go they are now three points adrift of the Top Six, however, Millwall are also nine goals behind Derby. As for their recent form, although the Blues embarked on a 12 match unbeaten run, Millwall have now failed to win any of their last three, drawing one and losing their last two. Millwall have also shipped five in those defeats and failed to register a single goal in reply.
As for the visitors, although Aston Villa would have begun the season believing they should be clinching automatic promotion, Villa have secured their playoff spot and have finished the year on a high. After 45 games this season, Villa have won 24, drawn 11 and lost 10, scoring 72 and conceding 41, they now hold the third best-attacking stats in the Championship. With a points tally of 83, Villa find themselves five points adrift of Fulham and will already know that they’re likely to face Middlesbrough in the playoffs later this month. As for their recent form, Villa are now unbeaten in their last four, winning three and drawing one.
