Blackburn Rovers vs Rotherham United top free betting tips

Blackburn has lost six of their previous seven matches, despite winning three in four previous to this bad run. Losses to Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds, Southampton, Watford, Huddersfield and Hull have seen Blackburn massively fall away from a potential playoff spot to the bottom half of the table. Blackburn faces Rotherham who look a different side under Leam Richardson. Leam has got Rotherham back to doing what they do best, frustrating the opposition and making them work harder than ever to get anything from a match. They have shown that in their 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough and 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both teams have found the back of the net in two of Blackburn's previous three matches, Blackburn has failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their previous eight matches and has failed to score in three of those matches. In total, there have been thirty goals in those eight matches, showing just how exciting Blackburn games usually are for the neutral.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals is almost always a dead cert in Blackburn matches. All of their previous five matches have finished with 2.5 goals or more and just one of their previous eleven matches has failed to see 2.5 goals or more. Rotherham struggles to score more often and as of late, do not concede much but they are up against a Blackburn side who are all over the place defensively and have got the top scorer in the division, Sammie Szmodics.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Rotherham United

Despite Rotherham being comfortably bottom of the table, we are predicting a win for the South Yorkshire side. Blackburn has been very poor as of late while Rotherham has improved under Leam Richardson. Following on from their win against Middlesbrough and draw against Sunderland, we predict Rotherham's very long run without an away win to come to an end as 2024 starts.
