Millwall - Leeds United Betting Preview: Back the hosts to continue their hot streak

Kenny Jackett's side are unbeaten in nine matches going into this clash and Willie Duncan is backing the Lions to extend that run by seeing off Neil Warnock's men this weekend
In-form Millwall will look to maintain their recent charge towards the Championship play-off places when they play host to out-of-sorts Leeds United at the Den on Sunday afternoon.

The Lions are one of the form teams in the Championship at the moment having gone nine matches without defeat, a run which includes three victories in their last four matches and Kenny Jackett’s men can be backed at a juicy even money (2.0) quote with William Hill to make it four victories in five by seeing off Leeds.

Neil Warnock’s side had constructed their own seven-match unbeaten run, a sequence of results which included a 2-1 Capital Cup win over Premier League Everton, before defeat at the hands of Birmingham City last month sparked a poor run of form which has seen Leeds fail to win any of their last four league matches, culminating in a humiliating 6-1 reverse at the hands of Watford last weekend.

Leeds are available at 12/5 (3.40) with William Hill to bounce back from that defeat by claiming all three points on Sunday while the same firm go 5/2 (3.50) that the match ends in a draw.

It should be noted that 12 of Millwall’s 16 league matches thus far this term have featured three or more goals while 10 of Leeds’ 16 league games have also featured more than two goals so a high-scoring affair looks to be a likely outcome here.

With that in mind, the 7/10 (1.70) quote from William Hill for three or more goals to be scored in this clash looks to represent excellent value here.

It should also be noted that Millwall have scored, at least, twice in six of their last seven matches so the 23/10 (3.30) for the Lions to score exactly two goals is also tempting at good value here.

Those seeking bigger prices should get involved with William Hill’s correct score market as there is certainly plenty of value on offer, with the 15/2 (8.50) quote from William Hill for the hosts to enjoy a 2-1 triumph the selection here.
