Millwall vs Middlesbrough: Top free betting tips

Our Millwall vs Middlesbrough prediction is for a tight and cagey affair, which is usually the case when Millwall play, especially in front of their crowd.

Millwall have had a very season, by their usual standards but recently have managed to pick up some form winning three of their last four matches, only suffering defeat to Leicester City in the FA Cup which has seen the club rise from just above the relegation zone up to fifteenth position. Middlesbrough on the other hand sit three places above Millwall but will enter this fixtured on the back of an excellent 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Five of Millwall's previous six matches have seen fewer than 2.5 goals scored with all of the last six head-to-head meetings also seeing fewer than 2.5 goals scored. It is fair to say, this match never usually produces many goals. With Middlesbrough's huge injury list, we can see Michael Carrick's side coming to London and just trying to play it as simple as possible.

Both teams to score prediction: No

In all of the previous four meetings, both teams have failed to score with both teams scoring in just one of the previous eight meetings, a 1-1 draw in November 2021. Previous to Millwall's 3-2 FA Cup defeat to Leicester, the side from the capital of England had kept four clean sheets in a row. Middlesbrough also showed themselves that they could be a compact defensive unit when they came up against Chelsea's star-studded side.

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Middlesbrough

For our final prediction, we have gone with a narrow 1-0 victory for Middlesbrough. We think Michael Carrick's men will enter this fixtured buoyed by their incredible victory over Chelsea which will see them get over the line in this fixture with all three points.
