Bet Of The Day August 2 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Cambridge have lost their last three games vs teams in leagues above them
  • Millwall sit top of the Championship
  • The previous nine meetings has seen more than 1.5 goals scored
  • Millwall are undefeated on the previous nine meetings

We’re off to the EFL Cup first round for today’s best bet as Cambridge United and Millwall look to progress through to the next round.

Cambridge United got their League One campaign off to the perfect start, downing MK Dons, leaving them with no shots on target for the match.

Prior to that, they lost their previous three pre-season matches (all against teams in a higher league than themselves). In all three matches at least three goals were scored throughout the match.

Not only has the total goals hitting the over been a trend in pre-season, but it has also occurred in the previous nine meetings between the two sides (1.5 total goals).

Similarly, Millwall also got off to the best start of their Championship campaign with a cruisy 2-0 win over Stoke City to put them on top of the Championship table. On-loan defender Charlie Cresswell scored twice in that match.

The Lions have a superb recent history against the U’s, remaining undefeated in the previous nine meetings. In fact, Cambridge’s last win against Millwall was in 1992.

Hitting over 1.5 total match goals has also been a bit of a trend for Gary Rowett’s outfit recently, with nine of their last 11 matches hitting the over.

It’s hard to look past teams in a higher division in these league cup clashes, and Millwall’s quality should shine through to comfortably progress to the next round.
