Southampton vs Rotherham: Top free betting tips

On the back of back-to-back league victories, Southampton plays host to Rotherham United in Round 11 of the EFL Championship. The fixture will take place at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, 7 October. The Miller come into this game after extending their losing sequence with a loss to Bristol City.

Match result prediction: Southampton to win in both half

Rotherham has won both of the two H2Hs against Southampton. However, the Millers have been terrible recently with four defeats in their last five matches, ending one in a draw. On the other hand, Southampton have won two of their last four league outings at St Mary’s Stadium. the Saints were also able to dominate in the first halves of their previous two games. Meanwhile, Rotherham were trailing in the first halves two of their recent three road fixtures.   Hence, we back Southampton to dominate Rotherham United in both halves.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Both of the two H2Hs of these two sides have finished with high-scoring totals but their current form let us predict a different outcome. Southampton have found the back of the net six times in their last five fixtures in the EFL Championship. On the other hand, Rotherham are even worse as they scored just two goals in the aforestated period. Therefore, we predict this game to feature a total of Under 2.5 Goals.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Southampton

Rotherham United were unable to score a single goal in their last three league outings away from New York Stadium. The Millers conceded multiple goals in each game during that course. On the other hand, Southampton kept a clean sheet against Stoke in the previous league fixture. The Saints have also netted the ball more than once in three of their recent five games at St Mary’s Stadium. Based on these numbers, we believe to see a 2-0 win for the Saints at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
