Bradford v Millwall League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th May 2017

Wembley Stadion
Bradford v Millwall Betting Preview - League One 20th May 3.00pm Despite finishing the season with some patchy form, Millwall turned up and played very well in their semi-final second leg against Scunthorpe, pulling off a big underdog win in that tie. So will Bradford, be able to stand tall at the back as they did in their semi-final success over Fleetwood? The last three between these two have all ended in a 1-1 draw so we can expect a pretty tight and tense affair at Wembley on Saturday for a place in next season’s Championship.

Bradford v Millwall Betting Tips

Bradford finished six points ahead of Millwall at the end of the regular season in League One and they put on a good defensive show in shutting out Fleetwood in both legs of their semi-final. That was actually a big return from the Bantams who were underdogs for that tie. Bradford have gone W3 D2 L1 now in their last six games and have taken a clean sheet in four of those too, so they have the defensive capabilities to stick in there. Bradford to win to nil at William Hill is a price of 3/1, the same price as the reverse option. So you have no home and away form to look at for this Wembley showdown and after three 1-1 draws on the bounce between these two, including in the second leg of last season’s League One Play Off semi final (which Millwall won 4-2 on aggregate) this should be tight. A repeat 1-1 correct score option at William Hill is a quote of 5/1 across the 90 minutes. The overall head to head in the last six meetings reads one win each and four draws. Under 2.5 goals at William Hill looks a lock at a price of 3/5. So there isn’t much to choose between them and Millwall pulled out a bit of a shock with a 3-2 second leg away win at Scunthorpe in their semi-final showdown. They looked as if they had missed the boat in only drawing the first leg 0-0 at home. But that second leg victory takes the Lions to a W3 D1 L2 record in their last six. What could give Millwall a chance in this one is that Bradford won just one of their twelve matches against other top-six League One sides across the course of the season. Millwall does carry a good goalscoring threat in Steven Morrison and Lee Gregory who are a quote of 12/5 and 13/8 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market. That having been said, they have struggled for goals lately, scoring in just two of their last five games played, as they put in a relatively poor end of season run in. But that win out at Scunthorpe will have done their belief the power of good. This is going to be a tight final and both teams not to score at William Hill is a price of 4/5. The Lions are even money to lift the trophy, with Bradford at 4/5.

Bradford v Millwall Betting Odds

Branford 8/5, Draw 9/4, Millwall 17/10

Bradford v Millwall Predictions

Millwall to win: Millwall were underdogs in their semi-final against Fleetwood but came through the tie admirably. They have the head to head form going against the Bantams as well and while this is going to be a tight affair most likely, the Lions are value to edge it, probably by a one-goal margin and nothing more.

Scunthorpe v Millwall League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th May 2017

Football Betting
Scunthorpe v Millwall Betting Preview - League One 7th May 6.30pm Millwall may have missed the boat but not winning on home soil in the first leg. They lost 3-0 out at Scunthorpe earlier in the season and with the Iron in such a hot streak of form right now, in contrast to the erratic form of the Lions themselves, then the home will now go as favourites to reach the play-off final. There is good accumulator insurance to be snapped up at William Hill. Place a football acca of six or more selections on the selected markets and if your wager loses by only the one leg then you will get your lost stake refunded from the bookmaker.

This is available on every team in every league at any price in any combination. Register an account with online betting site William Hill and earn a free £20 bet as a welcome bonus from the bookie.

Scunthorpe v Millwall Betting Tips

It was a tight scrap at the Den in the first leg, with the game ending in a 0-0 draw so this is still in the balance. More likely than not, the Iron will be the happier of the two with the home advantage now in the second leg. They finished third in the league this season a massive nine points ahead of Millwall. At home during the regular season, the Iron went W14 D6 L3 and so are a very good home side. Scunthrope are on a five-match winning streak at home at the moment but they did only manage the one clean sheet in that sequence. Both teams to score at William Hill is a price of 4/5 but there may be a temptation to roll with Scunthorpe to win to nil at 7/2. That having been said, they have taken back to back clean sheets at home against Millwall, one of them a 3-0 win earlier in the season. In the William Hill correct score market, a 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 5/1 with a 1-0 win for the home side at 7/1. The Lions may have missed the boat in that first leg, failing to get themselves on the board. Now the tie has been made all that much more difficult for them as they head out on the road because they haven’t been in great away form lately to suggest that they can pull this off. Millwall have gone W2 D3 L3 in their last seven away from the Den. They failed to score in each of those defeats in that sequence as well. Millwall's Lee Gregory is the outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at a price of 13/8. Their overall form this season reads W7 D7 L9 and overall home and away in their last twelve games now they have won just four times (D4 L4). They are going to have to pull out something special on the weekend to get themselves in with a chance of a place in the final as they take on a very good home side.

Scunthorpe v Millwall Betting Odds

Scunthorpe 8/5, Millwall 17/10, Draw 11/5

Scunthorpe v Millwall Predictions

Scunthorpe home win: Scunthorpe should be able to deliver in this one as they are carrying strong home form right now and the Lions continue to struggle to hit the heights they were at earlier in the season.

Football Betting

Fleetwood v Bradford Betting Preview - League One 7th May 6.30pm

Things are still tight in this League One play-off semi-final. Bradford edged a 1-0 win at home, but they face a tough trip to Fleetwood who took a home win over the Bantams during the regular season. There is plenty of life left yet in this tie. Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet. This is because they run their great Sky Bet Club which is open to all punters.

Fleetwood v Bradford Betting Tips

Well, this tie is pretty wide open still you would feel. Fleetwood have to overturn a 1-0 defeat on home soil on the weekend, so they aren’t dead and buried yet. Fleetwood finished three points above Bradford in the final league standings this season and produced a great record of W12 D8 L3 on home soil in the regular season. They did bank a 2-1 home win over Bradford back in February and they have suffered only the one defeat in their last four at home against the Bantams (W1 D2 L1). Under 2.5 goals at Sky Bet for the second leg is a quote of 7/10 which should have some appeal. The 1-1 draw in the Sky Bet correct score market is an 11/2 price, with a 1-0 win for either bringing in a price of 7/1. Fleetwood have won just one of their last five home games though (D2 L2) which may throw a bit of favouritism towards the Bantams to kill the tie off. In the anytime goalscorer market, David Ball and Charlie Wyke sit as 13/8 joint-favourites. Will the Bantams be able to build on their advantage or at least just hang on to it? They are in pretty strong form because they have only lost two of their last twenty games now for the season in the league (including the first leg of the play-off semi final). They have picked up just the one win in their last five away games though in a D2 L2 record which stacks up equally against what Fleetwood have done at home in their last five games. Both teams to score at Sky Bet is a price of 8/11 and Bradford have netted in each of their last four games at Fleetwood. The Bantams are now a 2/7 odds-on price to qualify for the play-off final, with Fleetwood out at a big 11/4 price, but they can’t be written off yet.

Fleetwood v Bradford Betting Odds

Bradford 8/5, Fleetwood 7/4, Draw 12/5

Fleetwood v Bradford Predictions

Fleetwood home win: The Bantams have the advantage but Fleetwood can turn the pressure back onto them in this one. No reason why they can’t land the home win in this one, both teams to score is likely.

Bradford v Fleetwood League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th May 2017

Football Betting
Bradford v Fleetwood Betting Preview - League One 4th May 7.45pm Fleetwood’s last minute failure to hold on to third place in the League One Play-Offs may come back to haunt them. They now face a tough tie against Bradford to get through to the play-off final and they head out on the road to face the Bantams on Thursday night. They both took a home win over the other during the regular season and this should be a pretty tight affair across the tie. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Bradford v Fleetwood Betting Tips

The margins between these two in this semi-final tie are going to be tight. Bradford took a home win over Fleetwood during the season and they have won their last two on home soil against hem by a 2-1 scoreline. A Bradford 2-1 correct score at Bet365 returns a price of 8/1 which then should have some kind of appeal. At home in the regular season, they went unbeaten with an impressive W11 D12 L0 so it is hard to imagine that they are going to crumble in this one. The Bantams powered their way to the end of the season with a W4 D1 L1 record on the board in their last six home and away. They are currently running on a five-match winning streak on home soil as well right now, conceding just the one goal in that sequence. But Fleetwood are a threat and both teams to score at Bet365 is a quote of 21/20. The Bantams hold an overall record of W4 D3 L1 from their eight previous games against Fleetwood and that could be telling. Fleetwood finished three points above the Bantams in the league table, with just the two extra goals scored over Bradford (both having conceded 43 for the season). So again, tight margins in this one and they took a home win in their fixture against Bradford earlier in the season. This is pressure though for them starting this tie out on the road and in the regular season, Fleetwood went W11 D5 L7 out on the road. They are actually in great away form because they have lost just one of their last fourteen away games (in early April at Oldham) and have won three of their last four away from home. David Ball is a 12/5 bet365 anytime goalscorer option for them, with Charlie Wyke and Billy Clarke as 6/4 joint-favourites for the home side to net. So everything really points to a close game but backing a Bradford 1 goal winning margin at bet365 at 5/2 looks value, just going based on the home form of the Bantams.

Bradford v Fleetwood Betting Odds

Bradford 10/11, Draw 9/4, Fleetwood 16/5

Bradford v Fleetwood Predictions

Bradford Home Win: There isn't going to be much between these two over the two legs, but the Bantams have good home form running at the moment to just sneak a home win in this one. That’s despite the great away form of Fleetwood.

Millwall v Scunthorpe League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th May 2017

Football Betting
Millwall v Scunthorpe Betting Preview - League One 4th May 7.45pm This is going to be a tough tie for Millwall, who just about managed to overcome their poor form during the end of season run-in to cling on to the final play off spot. But they were hammered by Scunthorpe in the regular season on the road and they are going to have to make the most of this home advantage in the first leg. The Irons though strung together a fantastic five-match winning streak to end the season and will be looking to stretch that momentum.

Millwall v Scunthorpe Betting Tips

It sure was a nervy finish to the season by Millwall who just about held on to that final play off spot. They managed that by landing a 4-3 win at Bristol Rovers on the last day of the regular season, which was important, because if they hadn’t pulled that off, then Southend, who won their final game, would have beaten them to sixth. Millwall have had a good season at home with a W13 D6 L4 record on the board. But they only managed a patchy W2 D1 L2 record in their last five games of the season home and away. As a positive, they booked a 3-1 home win over Scunthorpe earlier in the season and over 2.5 goals at Bet365 in this one is a price of even money. Eight of the last ten between these two have gone over the goal line. But despite that, both teams have failed to score in four of the last six between them. Both teams not to score at bet365 is a quote of 19/20. Millwall have a W2 D1 L1 record from their last four home games, and they have Lee Gregory, who netted a brace against Bristol Rovers on the weekend, as 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite. The Iron will turn up and compete well in this game. They are running along on a great five-match winning streak at the moment and they have gone W6 L1 in their last seven played. During that sequence, the only defeat there was that 3-1 loss out at Millwall at the Den, but the sequence of games also saw them beat play-off semi-finalists Bradford too. They have put together a two-match winning streak out on the road, which is timely because it snapped a six-match winless streak (D2 L4) away from home that they were on. The Iron have come good at the right time down the final stretch and they have gone W2 L2 in their last four visits to the Den, so this is up in the air completely. Scunthorpe’s record against the better teams in the division across the course of the regular season wasn’t great, but they will give the Lions, who haven’t been great lately a game. The Iron have Josh Morris at 5/2 and Paddy Madden at 21/10 as options in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market.

Millwall v Scunthorpe Betting Odds

Millwall Even Money, Draw 12/5, Scunthorpe 11/4

Millwall v Scunthorpe Predictions

Draw: The Lions have been good enough at home to just hang in there to make this tie interesting. Scunthorpe doesn't look like getting beaten at the moment and so all around, this is likely to end up in a cagey first leg tie.

Bolton v Peterborough League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th April 2017

Football Betting
Bolton v Peterborough Betting Preview - League One 30th April 12.00pm A big game for Bolton who will be celebrating automatic promotion to the Championship with a win in this one. A point will probably be enough for them to get there unless Fleetwood runs up a cricket score in their final match. Defeat for the Trotters would leave the door open for Fleetwood to edge them out of second place though. So still a tense finish to come. Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365. For starters, there is their great 0-0 bore draw insurance available on all matches which offers great protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wagers.

Bolton v Peterborough Betting Tips

So Bolton have one job left to close out the regular season with and that is to avoid losing to Peterborough. That will likely be enough to ensure that they finish second in the table. It’s possible that Fleetwood could end up level on points with them, but Bolton have a far superior goal difference over them. At home this season in League Two the Trotters have gone W12 D7 L3 so they have been pretty reliable there. They haven’t been bang on top of their game home and away lately with a mixed W2 D2 L2 record in their last six played. They have remained unbeaten in at home in their last eight games now with a W3 D5 record. They have been struggling a bit for goals lately with just the three in their last six and under 2.5 goals at Bet365 for this fixture returns a price of 23/20. Bolton lost 1-0 out at Peterborough earlier in the season but they are unbeaten in their last four on home soil against them with a W3 D1 record and that could be enough to get them over the finish line. Bolton to win to nil is a price of 6/4 at Bet365. Peterborough won’t go up or down from their 11th spot in the league regardless of what happens in his one and to those around them on Sunday. They have produced a W3 D1 L2 record in their last six games now and out on the road they have won just one of their last seven played now in a W1 D2 L4 record. So there is a chance for the Trotters to convert here and Boro have netted just one goal in their last three away games as well. In the Bet365 correct score market a Bolton 1-0 result is a 7/1 price and that is going to have some appeal. Peterborough have scored just two goals in total in their last four at Bolton. In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market, Adam Le Fondre is 20/21 outright favourite with Gary Madine and Chris Long at 7/5. Bolton just need to edge themselves over the line and a one goal margin victory for them comes at a price of 11/4.

Bolton v Peterborough Betting Odds

Bolton 4/9, Draw 16/5, Peterborough 13/2

Bolton v Peterborough Predictions

Draw: At the end of the day, Bolton won't want to lose. Their goal difference advantage over Fleetwood is strong enough and they haven’t been in great form lately. They may have to settle for a share of the spoils.

Bristol Rovers v Millwall League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th April 2017

Football Betting
Bristol Rovers v Millwall Betting Preview - League One 30th April 12.00pm A tense finish to come for the Lions who are hanging on to the final play-off spot in League One. A win guarantees they stay there, while a draw or defeat opens the door for either Rochdale or Southend to push them out. This isn’t an easy game for the Lions to finish with either as they have lost their last three in the West Country against Rovers.

Bristol Rovers v Millwall Betting Tips

Bristol Rovers are not going to be a pushover on home soil, with them having won each of their last four home games in League one. They are actually on a twelve match unbeaten streak of form at home in the league with a brilliant W9 D3 record. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 returns a price of even money for this one as it should be tight and tense. Bristol Rover suffered a 4-0 loss Millwall earlier in the season, but have won their last three in a row at home against them. Rovers have been good at the back this season and both teams not to score in this one has some appeal at a price of 6/5. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last three meetings between these two. Overall this season on home soil, Rovers have gone W13 D6 L3 and they have taken three clean sheets in their last four on home soil as well. The Lions will have their nerves jangling ahead of this one, as they have fallen to back to back to defeats in the league which has put pressure on themselves. They have actually won just one of their last four in a W1 D1 L2 record but everything can be settled if they go out and put a win on the board in his one. That would give them the final play off spot. They have been struggling for returns out on the road though because they have only gone W1 D3 L3 in their last seven away games and they have found the back of the net just once in their last four away from the Den as well now. So this is a very tricky game for them and they have the losing streak going at Rovers as well. Millwall’s away form this season reads W6 D7 L9 overall, so not particularly strong enough to convince punters perhaps. In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market, Lee Gregory is 6/5 outright favourite with Steve Morison at 13/8 for Millwall.

Bristol Rovers v Millwall Betting Odds

Millwall even money, Draw 12/5, Bristol Rovers 11/4

Bristol Rovers v Millwall Predictions

Bristol Rovers Home Win: This is a tough game for the lions as Rovers are bang in form on home soil in League One. They have head to head form in this fixture and the Lions may just come up short under some huge pressure.

Fleetwood v Port Vale League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th April 2017

Football Betting
Fleetwood v Port Vale Betting Preview - League One 30th April 12.00pm It is going to be a tense afternoon for both of these sides. Port Vale need to bag three points in this tough away game to have a chance of staying up, as well as hoping that Gillingham don't win their final game. As for Fleetwood, three home points secures them third place but if Bolton lose, then it would be enough for Fleetwood to grab the second automatic promotion place.

Fleetwood v Port Vale Betting Tips

So Fleetwood look set for a dramatic conclusion to the regular season. They can still claim second place in the league or finish as low as fifth. So they have a final job to do and that is win this one and hope that Bolton lose their game, to snatch second place. Fleetwood are on a three-match winning streak in League One, but their home form has gone patchy though as they have picked up just the one win in their last four on home soil (W1 D1 L2) but importantly that win was in their most recent home game which was against Millwall. Fleetwood have a W12 D7 L3 record at home this season and a Fleetwood to win to nil wager at SkyBet is a price of 2/1. Fleetwood suffered a loss at Port Vale earlier in the season and have only gone W1 L2 from their three previous home games against the Vale. But Port Vale are facing a desperate final weekend of action. They have posted a W1 L5 record in their last six league games. However, a last-gasp away winner at Walsall on Tuesday meant that they kept their survival hopes alive for one more game. They do have to win this one and hope that Gillingham doesn't get a victory as that is the only way they stay up. The victory over Walsall was just Port Vale’s second away win all season in a W2 D6 L14 record. They have scored just the 13 goals away from home this season now so winning this isn’t going to be easy at all. Both teams to score is a price of 3/4 at Sky Bet as the Vale have to be brave at some point, while under 2.5 goals in the game returns a price of 5/6. In the goalscorer market, Fleetwood’s David Ball is outright favourite a 11/10. Port Vale have just one goal in their last four away games in total and in the Sky Bet correct score market, a Fleetwood 1-0 result is a 13/2 option.

Fleetwood v Port Vale Betting Odds

Fleetwood 3/4, Draw 16/5, Port Vale 19/5

Fleetwood v Port Vale Predictions

Fleetwood Home Win: Look for the home side to edge this one. It is going to be a bit nervy for both of them, but the Vale don’t look strong enough to go out and take down such a strong home side. Fleetwood to win by a one goal margin.

Walsall v Port Vale League One Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th April 2017

Football Betting
Walsall v Port Vale Betting Preview - League One 25th April 7.45pm A crunch game for Port Vale on Tuesday night. They are in a position where they have to win this game out at Walsall because if they don’t then they will be relegated before they get to the final weekend of the regular season. Can they pull it off? They are taking on a Walsall side who have only managed to win one of their last eight games so there could be a small opening for the visitors who have to leave everything on the pitch in this one. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Walsall v Port Vale Betting Tips

Well, Walsall do actually have a mathematical chance of a top half of the table finish, but they probably are going to miss out on that. They aren’t in great form at the moment as they have won only one of their last eight games in League One now (W1 D3 L4) but the lone win perhaps tellingly for this game, did come on home soil in a win over the already-relegated Swindon. Walsall have been solid at home this season in the league and they produced a fantastic W7 D1 L1 record in their last nine home games and you can’t argue with that. The only defeat from that sequence was against automatic promotion hopefuls, Fleetwood. Walsall aren’t particularly heavyweight when it comes to goals and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 3/4. Earlier this season when the two met there was a 1-0 win for Walsall. A repeat Walsall 1-0 correct score at Bet365 for this fixture is a price of 6/1. Walsall are currently on a three-match winning streak against Port Vale in League One now and have (W3 D1 L1) in their last five against them. Port Vale are almost down and out. They will be playing in League Two next season if they don’t pick up a win in this game. If they draw, that would give them a mathematical chance on the last day of staying up, but that would require them to beat Fleetwood handsomely and see Gillingham suffer a big loss. Unfortunately, even if Port Vale win their last two games, it may not be enough. They are currently running on a five-match losing streak in the league and they have hit the back of the net in just one of their last seven league games now. Walsall to win to nil at Bet365 is a tempting 11/4 price. Port Vale have just one away win this season in League One and that came back on October 9th at Milton Keynes. Overall their away record reads W1 D6 L14 and they are on a five-match losing streak away from home, having failed to score in each of their last three. Walsall's Erhun Oztumer is 6/4 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market in a game which is probably going to produce very little.
