One to Watch: Tammy Abraham

Aston Villa are firmly in the spotlight right now but will expect to get something out of this game, regardless of whether Bruce remained in charge or not.

The pressure is on and Villa need a star to lead the line as Scott Hogan is likely start from the bench.

After firing against Preston last time out, Chelsea-owned Tammy Abraham is a proven quantity in the Championship and, at 17/10 to score anytime in the game with BetBright, is one of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

Manager Neil Harris was full of praise for his side after they came from 2-0 down to draw the game 2-2 at Nottingham Forest. With centre-back Shaun Hutchinson their only absentee, there is little reason for Harris to not name the same starting XI.

Kevin MacDonald is the man who has been thrust into the spotlight following Steve Bruce’s sacking, but he’ll will be without James Chester, who received his marching orders against Preston North End midweek.

Striker Scott Hogan was on the bench for the Villans and may be in line for some minutes on Saturday after recovering from an injury.

Millwall vs Aston Villa Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Villa react positively to Steve Bruce’s sacking?

It is all change at Aston Villa after Steve Bruce’s two-year spell came to an end, wrapped up by cabbage-gate. The Villa fans are demanding more and it is up to Kevin MacDonald to steady the ship until a permanent boss is found. How this will affect the players remains to be seen, but Millwall manager Neil Harris is equally feeling the heat, with his side in the relegation zone after just one win all season. Expect a tense affair in our Championship preview, with both sets of fans eager to see their side get a much-needed three points.

Millwall are 19/10 to win, but it is hard to get excited about that. Just one win all season hardly instills confidence in a team struggling to find their identity, making one of our football predictions for this game to look elsewhere for the match result.

Villa are 11/8 to win and normally you would jump at that. However, a new man in (interim) charge and the fact that the Midlands outfit have not won at The Den since 1975 mean this is also one of the football score predictions that may be worth staying away from.

The draw is 12/5 and that is one the best football betting tips for this game. The pair have drawn 10 games combined this season and Villa have drawn three of their last five fixtures, including their last two.

Under 2.5 goals is 3/4 and one of the best ways to go in our Championship preview. Remarkably, only one of the last seven meetings between the two teams saw more than two goals scored in a game, making this today’s football prediction.

Aston Villa to score first is 4/5. Incredibly, you have to go all the way back to August 18 for the last time the Lions scored in the first half, while Villa netted twice in their opening midweek fixture, making it one of the best football predictions here.

Predicted Score: Millwall 1 - 1 Aston Villa
