Middlesbrough vs Rotherham United: Top free betting tips

Our Middlesbrough vs Rotherham United predictions are below. Middlesbrough's recent form does sum up their season. They have won three and lost three of their previous six matches while Rotherham have won just one of their previous sixteen matches, a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on Boxing Day.

Middlesbrough is still on a high following an excellent 1-0 win over Chelsea in their Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg match and that showed against Millwall as the Teessiders earned a very good 3-1 win after going 1-0 behind. Rotherham is very much destined for relegation and that shows with just three wins in twenty-seven league matches this season.
