Championship betting, Southampton - Millwall

The Saints have made a perfect start with all three wins and I am about to think they really have a quality to fight for play-off at least. Including previous season, they have nine competitive wins in a row and eleven straight at home. They’re scoring for fun lately (13 goals in four games this season) and five of their last six encounters ended with four or more goals. They will be missing Richard Chaplow, Radhi Jaidi and Lee Barnard.

Millwall are also undefeated in the opening three rounds. They have a decent fire power with Liam Trotter and especially with Darius Henderson (if he manage to stay fit through the season). They scored twice in every of those three games, but interesting two times lost the advantage (conceded both times two goals in the space of 5 min). Dany N'Guessan has joined Therry Racon and Shaun Batt on Millwall’s injury list.

Lads from the Den won’t have too much respect on St Mary's and I am pretty sure they can score at least once (Henderson). The Saints won’t mind as long as they have one goal more on the balance. My sixth sense says draw or away win, but wouldn’t dare to oppose the leading side and their perfect run. Both teams are able to score a lot (and to concede), so my bet is over 2.5.
