FOOTBALL BETTING: Live on SkySports1: Tue 19.45: League 1 playoffs 2nd leg; Millwall v Huddersfield. The 1st leg was a 0-0 stalemate, can the Lions capitalise on home advantage?
Suffocating Huddersfield’s prolific strikeforce at the Galpharm Stadium was no mean feat for Kenny Jackett’s gritty Millwall side, who are now in the driving seat as far as qualification is concerned in the pair’s League One play-off contest.
Having secured a draw in the first leg, away from home, the Lions look poised to get the job done on home soil, although at 1/2 with Ladbrokes they aren’t exactly a money spinner. Similarly, at 10/11 with Betfred to win the second leg, Millwall don’t set the pulse racing so shrewd punters will be backing them to dominate the Terriers.
William Hill chalk Jackett’s troops up at a tempting 21/10 to be in front at the interval and the final whistle and Jaxx.com make them 49/20 in the handicaps, where Huddersfield will kick off aided by a goal start.
The hosts have a formidable record on home soil where they possess the best defensive record having only lost one game there all season and as the visitors, during the regular season, lost more away games than all of the teams around them, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Millwall get on top in the early stages.
Paddy Power’s 10/3 for the Lions to be in front after 20 minutes is worth considering then while in attack, for the home side, Steve Morison is the man to watch. The Millwall marksman managed six goals in his side’s last six at the New Den; he’s 9/2 with Stan James to break the deadlock in this one and 7/5 courtesy of Paddy Power to notch at any stage.
