Millwall vs Bournemouth – England FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
The spectacle of the oldest football competition in the world, the FA Cup, is again in front of us. Although the contest has been going on for quite a while, with teams from all divisions participating, critics and fans consider it’s beginning when the Premier League teams enter. That time has come, and the first match we’ll analyze from the series is Millwall-Bournemouth.
Millwall vs Bournemouth – 07 January 2017
Full Time Result: Millwall 4.50 or 7/2 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Bournemouth 1.85 or 17/20
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20
Quite an uneven game, since Millwall are in League One at the moment – and not even at the top of it. They currently sit 9th with a 41-39 goal difference, which actually leads us to believe they won’t be really disappointed if they exit the FA Cup. They’re just a few points shy of the playoff spots, which would clearly be of much bigger help for the club than progressing a few rounds in a cup competition which they really can’t win. They do play the tie at home, but will surely rest a couple of their first team players.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth is one of the teams to watch in the Premier League this season. They are sitting in 9th place, just like their adversaries in the FA Cup, but do so two divisions above. They’re coming after a 3-3 draw against Arsenal, a game which they led 3-0 and conceded the last goal in the 92nd minute, but where they showed great football – just like in their 4-3 victory against Liverpool. Bournemouth is not the greatest away team in the world this year and will also rest a couple of key players, but the quality of their squad should be enough to take them through.
Millwall vs Bournemouth Betting Tips
That being said, there are two or three bets we find ideal for this game. X2 is the first and clearest, Bournemouth to score is the second, while an over 1,5 goal bet is another virtual certainty, since both teams score and concede quite a few. Thus, you can also go for a “both teams to score” bet here. The idea is simple: many goals, Bournemouth to progress.
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.10 or 11/10 with 138
