MILLWALL SUDDENLY IN WITH A SHOUT
March 25th, 2016 | Ian Carnaby's Sports News
We made a small profit last week with Bristol City thrashing a hapless Bolton 6-0. 4/5 can sometimes look quite attractive when the game is all but over after half an hour and City had been threatening to give somebody a hiding at Ashton Gate.
It’s tempting to look at the ‘minus one’ market in matches like this and there would have been no worries giving Bolton a goal start. Still, finding the value is often quite hard. If the opposition scores early, your team has to score at least three times and that can be quite a tall order. The main problem, however, is the price. If the home team is 4/5 to win, the minus one price is often no better than 15/8 – handsome where Bristol City were concerned but we only knew that afterwards.
Teams that are flying at present include Millwall and Bristol Rovers. The latter are in the play-off positions and won again on Good Friday, beating Cambridge 3-0. I think they will still be in with a shout at the end of the season.
Millwall have quietly crept into contention in League One after a long spell in the doldrums. They beat a very disappointing Sheffield United 1-0 at the New Den last week and I doubt they will be beaten at Bradford on Saturday. My main wager on the day – I never bet on international friendlies, or any other sort – would be MILLWALL to win, draw no bet. They will still be a shade of odds against but you will have to shop around.
Dover have delighted their nearest and dearest in the National League and should account for Torquay.
MILLWALL 25 units to beat Bradford, draw no bet
DOVER 20 units at 9/10 Betway or 5/6 generally, to beat Torquay.
