Blackpool vs Rotherham: Top Free Betting Tips

Rotherham United are on an undefeated run of games with successive draws in the league and face Blackpool in the next fixture on Saturday, 11 February. The Seasiders also dropped two points in the last game at home against Huddersfield.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

Rotherham United have been impressive against Blackpool with consecutive victories in recent H2H. However, The Millers have been desperate in the recent visits and claimed only one victory in the last six league visits, losing three of them. Blackpool has also raised a winless pattern at home in Championship but they ended three of the previous five in draws. So we don’t see any team strong enough to take the lead in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Blackpool were able to score twice in the last home game but they have added a total of only four goals in the previous four league-hosting duels. Rotherham United have also been similar with only three goals in the recent five away attempts in EFL Championship. Furthermore, three of the last five H2Hs of these teams have featured low-scoring patterns. Given this, we predict the teams to feature a total of below 2.5 goals in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

The Seasiders have rattled the net more than once in only one of the last six games at home while allowing four goals in the last four of them. Rotherham United are even worse in this case and didn’t score at least twice in any of the previous seven visits in all competitions. Defensively, the team has conceded only one goal in the previous three league games. Therefore, we expect this duel to end in a 1-1 tie.

Blackpool vs Rotherham: Form, Recent Games, and News

Blackpool Preview

Scoring in the 90th minute of the last game against Huddersfield, the Seasiders saved a point after consecutive defeats with a 2-2 draw. But a total of only six wins and nine draws in 29 attempts have limited them to the second-last position in the standings. Lewis Fiorini and Keshi Anderson are going to miss this game due to fitness issues.

Rotherham Preview

The Millers hosted Sheffield United in the last game and clipped them to a goalless draw. Rotherham United have won only seven of the 29 games, along with 11 ties and find themselves in the twentieth position on the table. The manager Matt Taylor will be free to report any fitness issues in the team before this game.
