The fact Millwall have played two League games as opposed to Coventry’s one so far might mean they are more into their stride this season.
If you don’t fancy Millwall for both halves, this bet is also good odds. There have been over 1.5 goals in all matches these two have played so far this campaign.
Gary Rowett’s men have got off to a mixed start this season, beating Stoke City 2-0 on the opening day but that scoreline was reversed against promotion hopefuls Sheffield United last time out. Although they were up against the better side on paper, fans will be extremely disappointed in the manner of the goals their side conceded and the fact the game was virtually over after 22 minutes when Sander Berge rounded Bartosz Białkowski to notch United’s second.
Millwall will go into this one more confident about getting a result though, particularly at The Den which can be a fortress at times, making it extremely difficult for an opposition to play their game. The hosts enter this one as slight favourites with bookies currently offering odds of 7/5 for a Millwall win.
Meanwhile, Coventry gained a decent point at the Stadium of Light on the opening day of the season, dominating the game for large parts. However, the club faced backlash last weekend due to their game against Rotherham being postponed because of the playing surface being adjudged to be sub-par and not up to the required standard for a second division fixture.
This is quite embarrassing for a club the size of Coventry and is sure to have annoyed their loyal fanbase, who have had more than their fair share of ownership troubles over the last few years. It remains to be seen when that fixture will be played and it may go the way of their midweek EFL cup, which is due to be played at Burton Albion’s ground. The away side goes into this one as slight outsiders, priced at 2/1.
