Norwich City vs Millwall Tips

Betting Tip: Norwich City win

The hosts really deserve to be higher in the table given their performances. They have registered an exceptional 68 shots so far this campaign but have remarkably scored just four goals. Things tend to even out over the course of the season and whilst Dean Smith will be disappointed that his side has earned just one solitary league victory so far this campaign, he will be happy that his side are creating chances.

Millwall were delivered a stroke of fortune in their last outing. They looked down and out away to Swansea City but two own goals in the 93rd and 95th minute from the hosts saw the ‘Lions’ leave the Swansea.com Stadium with a point. Despite that stroke of luck, it also marked yet another match where Gary Rowett’s side have failed to keep a clean sheet when playing away from home.

The last time they were able to prevent conceding a goal on the road was all the way back in March and Improvement is needed at the back if they’re to take anything away from this one.

I like the look of Norwich City in this one. It remains to be seen if Teemu Pukki will be available and it looks as though Josh Sargent will continue to lead the line for the Canaries. However, the hosts should create chances and I'll have 1.5 points on them edging this one.

Norwich - 1.5pts @ 19/20

Betting Tip: Over 1.5 First Half Goals

First half goals is often a risky market but I like the look of the first 45 minutes producing a couple of goals. 

Of the visitors opening four league matches, three of them have seen at least two goals scored in the first-half and I think we could be in for a fast start here. I’m expecting Millwall to try and catch Norwich City on the counter like they did away to Swansea City.

In that one, the ‘Lions’ played the majority of the match in their own half and tried to utilise the wings. However, despite trying to pick their moments of when to attack, they still found themselves 2-0 inside the opening 15 minutes. 

Norwich City will pose a different threat and it wouldn’t even be a surprise to see the ‘Canaries’ race into a 2-0 lead given the visitors have conceded the opening goal in three of their last four matches.

Dean Smith’s outfit will be buoyed after securing their first league victory last time out, but they haven’t kept a clean sheet so far this season. I think there should be goals in this game and I'll have a point on the first half witnessing a couple of goals.
