SlipsTips makes the case for backing goals at the Den on Tuesday night when Millwall play host to Preston in the English Championship.
Millwall vs Preston (Tuesday, 19:45)
Separated by just one point and two places in the English Championship table, 15th-placed Millwall meet fellow mid-table side Preston at the Den on Tuesday night.
The Lions snapped a four-game losing streak across all competitions with a well-deserved 2-0 over West Brom last time out, while North End enter this contest off the back of a 2-2 draw with Bristol City.
It's difficult to have much faith in either team here given their respective inconsistencies, but I've identified an alternative angle at an attractive price to support during this East London encounter.
Delving into the Asian Goal line we can see it set at 2.0 and I'm more than happy to have a play on Overs at 5/6 with Bet 365.
This selection would deliver profit if the match produces three or more goals, whereas we’ll see our stake returned in full if this fixture finishes with exactly two strikes.
Across their opening 27 matches of the season, Millwall have managed just six clean sheets, the same amount as Preston who have played one game more than their opponents.
In attack both clubs have only failed to score on only 12/54 (22%) occasions, not to mention Gary Rowett's hosts have notched in all but one of their 12 home games this term to date.
What's more, 11 of the visitors' most recent 13 English Championship encounters have generated a minimum of two match goals, with a healthy eight matches from that sample rewarding Over 2.5 Goals backers.
It's also worth noting that there has been at least two goals scored in a lofty 40 of the pair's collective 54 league fixtures this season so far.
With all things considered, the 5/6 (Bet 365) about Over 2.0 Asian Goals holds appeal, especially when you consider our stake is refunded if exactly two goals are scored.
