Football – England – League One Betting Tips

Wembley Stadium is the venue for the climax of the League One season as Bradford City and Millwall prepare to do battle in the League One play-off final to decide who will join Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers in the Championship next season.

Bradford City were the only side in the division to remain unbeaten at home throughout the whole campaign as they finished up the regular season with an overall home record of  11-12-0  36/17 which deserves special mention, and The Bantams continued their solid form into the play-off semi-finals with a 1-0 aggregate win over Fleetwood Town.

Bradford have recorded a total of 18 clean sheets (including the play-off semi-final) as their solid defensive unit has been the key to their success so far this season. Incidentally, the previous two meetings between these two clubs in the regular season both ended up in 1-1 draws.

Millwall finished the regular League One season in sixth spot and therefore claimed the last remaining play-off spot with a one point margin over seventh placed Southend United. The majority of Millwall’s success came at home where they posted an overall record of  13-6-4  34/17, while their away results were a tad inconsistent.

That said, The Lions registered a very impressive 3-2 win away at Scunthorpe United in the second leg of their play-off semi-final following a 0-0 draw at the New Den in the first leg. This therefore shows that Millwall need to be respected here.

Millwall have registered 15 clean sheets throughout their League One campaign to date (including the play-off semi final with Scunthorpe), and they’ll certainly want to keep things tight early on here this afternoon.

With the stakes being so high for both clubs as they search for Championship football, I reckon we could be in for a low scoring affair here.
