Rotherham United vs Southampton: Top free betting tips

Can the Millers end a run of five matches without victory by earning a win against Southampton? If Rotherham pulled this off, it would undoubtedly be the biggest shock of the Championship season so far.

Southampton, since a defeat to Middlesbrough in September has been in sublime form and is unbeaten in twenty-tw0 matches (W15 D7) in all competitions. Russell Martin's side will be hoping a win here will put even more pressure on second-placed Ipswich Town.
