Middlesbrough vs Rotherham United: Top Free Betting Tips

Middlesbrough came up short in a five-goal thriller against Cardiff City. They have a tough task on their hands as Rotherham United arrive at the Riverside Stadium following a 3-0 win over Blackpool.

Rotherham United to Win or Draw

Middlesborough has lost two and drawn one of their last five homes fixtures.  On the other hand, Rotherham United have only tasted defeat on the road once this season, winning once and drawing the other two fixtures. With the Millers arriving after a 3-0 victory over Blackpool, confidence will be high in their ranks. We are going with the Double Chance option on them as it gives the most value while covering aspects.

Over 2.5 Goals

Only three of Rotherham United's last seven fixtures have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. Boro has been far more involved with goals, with five matches in the same period seeing this result. The visitors showed their scoring prowess with a three-goal masterclass against Blackpool while Boro came close in their 2-3 defeat. Based on this, we anticipate a high-scoring conclusion to their latest encounter.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

When it comes to scoring goals, both Middlesbrough and Rotherham United have found an extra gear in recent weeks. They do allow goals as has been the case when they are involved, irrespective of whether the match is played at home or away. Two of their last three competitive fixtures saw both sets of attackers getting the job done and we expect the trend to continue.

Middlesbrough vs Rotherham United: Team News and Match Preview


Boro are scoring goals but allowing too much freedom to their rivals. This has seen them concede with far too much regularity and has been their bane this season. They have picked up two wins from their last four matches after waiting for six matches for their first. As it stands, they stand right outside the relegation slots courtesy of a better goal difference and need to pick up points to stray away from it.

Rotherham United

Second place in the EFL League One gave them the ticket back to the Championship. Rotherham has grabbed the opportunity with both hands and do not want to let it go. They have raced to the top ten in the second division and have a game in hand over their rivals. However, more impressive is their defence which has only conceded six goals, the third-best tally in the league.
