Shaun Williams anytime goalscorer odds look overpriced as Millwall welcome Nottingham Forest to The Den on Friday.
Versatile Lions player Williams has a knack of finding the target against Forest, so his tasty odds appeal.
The Den, packed full of a partisan home crowd, is an intimidating atmosphere for any away side.
Proof, as if it were needed, can be found in Millwall’s record against the current Championship top six this season.
The Lions have held their own against those most fancied for promotion. Forest, who are fourth in the league, fit into that category.
As bookmakers also have mid-table Millwall favourites to win this encounter, the market is behind them.
In fixtures like this, punters are looking for a proven goalscorer. Williams fits the bill, because he has three in five Lions appearances against Forest, according to Soccerbase.
Williams was also on target against Birmingham City in Millwall’s last game, so he is in-form.
Why Williams anytime goalscorer odds appeal
The twice capped Republic of Ireland international looks worth chancing to find the net again.
Given his record against Forest, Williams anytime goalscorer odds of 15/2 with Paddy Power are generous.
Although the Lions have more obvious goal threats, such as Jed Wallace, Matt Smith and Tom Bradshaw, they are all half the price or shorter.
Williams really does look like a value punt against a visiting Forest who have only kept four clean sheet in their last 11 matches.
Millwall will make this tough for their opponents. A cold winter night game in London in front of that hostile crowd is the last thing Forest need.
There are safer bets for this fixture but Williams ticks plenty of boxes. At the best odds on offer, £4 wins you £30 if he nets again.
Forest have struggled away to this particular team and that trend may continue because of him.
Bet of the Day: 15/2 with Paddy Power, Shaun Williams anytime goalscorer in Millwall v Nottingham Forest.
