In a sentence: With Millwall making a late surge up the Championship table towards the play off places, can they beat Ipswich at Portman Road as Mick McCarthy gets ready to wave goodbye?

Last time: Ipswich won a thrilling 3-4 game at The Den, with Jordan Spence scoring a last minute winner to win the game. Hopefully that will be a Championship preview of this return bout.

This time: An Ipswich win is 2/1, a draw is 9/4 and an away win is priced at 11/8.

You might remember: The 3-4 win for Ipswich saw them move up to third in the Championship earlier in the season, before losing two of their next three games.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Ipswich haven’t won at Portman Road since mid-January

All signs here point towards yet another Millwall victory, and with a few of these football betting predictions you can see why. The Lions are currently on a run of 13 Championship games undefeated and are currently 10/1 to win 2-0 at Portman Road. Millwall only conceded twice in five games during the month of March, so a both teams to score bet at 10/11 may be somewhat of a risk in the both teams to score predictions market.

But let’s not count Ipswich out of the game just yet. They may have only won four times in the Championship in 2018, but they can occasionally have the tendency to frustrate the opposition (and sometimes their own fans) and a 1-1 draw is at 11/2. However, if you want to be a bit adventurous with your football score predictions, a 2-0 Ipswich is at 16/1, a result they have achieved twice at home this season.

Goalscorers have been a good topic to look at with these games and Millwall’s Lee Gregory is 9/2 to score first for the London club whilst Martyn Waghorn is favourite for Ipswich to open the scoring, priced at 4/1. If you want Ipswich to win 1-0 with Waghorn to score at any time, you can get odds of 18/1 while a Millwall 1-0 win with Steve Morison to score at any time is at 28/1.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Millwall legend Tim Cahill is 7/2 to score either the first or last goal, and could be worth factoring into any Championship predictions.


We Fancy:

A both teams to score prediction and no draw is at 2/1 and is something that is well on the cards given the recent form of the two sides. Football score predictions are usually quite risky but the recent history of this fixture suggests we could be in for goals.


It's a long shot, but:

A repeat of the earlier 3-4 win for Ipswich is at 125/1, so it’s safe to say it doesn’t look likely at all to happen, but at this stage of the Championship season simply anything is possible, especially in football predictions.
