Rotherham United vs Stoke City: Top free betting tips

Our Rotherham United vs Stoke City prediction is for this to be an interesting match. As much as Rotherham has improved under Leam Richardson and Stoke have improved under Steven Schumacher, both teams are still not doing the best, especially Rotherham who will be glad this is a home match as the club went all of 2023 without an away victory.

Rotherham and Stoke occupy two of the bottom three places in the Championship based on the previous ten matches with Stoke winning one and drawing five of their previous ten matches. In contrast, Rotherham has won one and drawn four of their previous ten.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Four of the previous five matches between Rotherham and Stoke have ended with more than 2.5 goals being scored, with the most recent two results being a 6-1 victory for Stoke in the Carabao Cup at the end of August 2023 and then a 4-1 victory for Stoke at the beginning of August.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both teams have found the back of the net in six of the previous eight fixtures, with plenty of goals in those matches. Three 2-2 draws, one 3-3 draw, one 4-1 win for Stoke and one 6-1 win for Stoke. This game historically provides goals and we expect the same to happen this time around.

​​Correct score prediction: 3-1 Draw

Steven Schumacher has had plenty of time to get to grips with this talented but underperforming Stoke City squad and we believe it will tell in this clash. Rotherham are usually a strong and compact team who are very difficult to play against, which they have shown in spells this season but it has not happened too often.
