Huddersfield vs Rotherham: Top free betting tips

Fresh from a surprising victory against Norwich City in the EFL Championship, Rotherham United take on Huddersfield Town on Saturday, 16 September. The Terries also enter this game after ending their winless sequence in the league with a victory over West Brom.

Match result prediction: Huddersfield to win

Huddersfield Town has won just one of their previous six games in the EFL Championship and EFL Cup. But the Terriers have recorded two victories, two defeats and a draw in the last five league outings at The John Smith’s Stadium. On the other hand, Rotherham United are winless in competitive road fixtures since the middle of November 2022, losing the last three in a row. Moreover, the Terriers outclassed Rotherham in the home H2Hs by winning four of the recent five H2Hs at The John Smith’s Stadium. Hence, we set Huddersfield as our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Three of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Huddersfield Town have found the back in three of the previous five matches while conceding goals in all of them. On the other hand, Rotherham United scored in each game during the aforestated period. But they have also been struggling at the back end and failed to claim a single clean sheet. Considering these facts, we predict these teams to share a BTTS outcome in this fixture.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Huddersfield

Huddersfield have found the back of the net in two of the last five fixtures. However, Rotherham United have scored just one goal in four of the recent five competitive games away from Aesseal New York Stadium. In the H2Hs, the Terriers scored two goals in four of the recent five meetings with Millers at the John Smith’s Stadium. Defensively, Huddersfield conceded just two goals in that course while keeping three clean sheets. Given this, we predict a 2-1 lead for Huddersfield before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
