Rotherham United vs Sunderland top free betting tips

A very tough test for Rotherham as they face another North East side having just played Middlesbrough, they now face Sunderland. Rotherham managed to earn a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough thanks to a Cohen Bramall goal but time will tell if the Millers can do the North East double. Rotherham ended an eleven-game winless run with that win over Boro while Sunderland has won four of their previous ten matches, drawing twice and losing four times.

Correct outcome prediction: Sunderland to Win

Sunderland have looked a shadow of their former selves in recent weeks having lost to Bristol City and Coventry but did manage to scrape a 1-0 victory over Hull City last time out, albeit they did look poor and it took a moment of magic from Jack Clarke to earn the three points. Sunderland is in the playoff places and will be doing everything they can to ensure they enter 2024 still in the playoff places.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Despite having the attacking talent Sunderland have, we can not see many goals in this match. Sunderland has scored just two times in their previous four matches which shows how off the track the club has been recently. Rotherham kept things tight against Middlesbrough with star goalkeeper Viktor Johansson managing some incredible saves to keep Middlesbrough at bay. For Rotherham to keep this tight, they will need their keeper to perform miracles once again.

Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Sunderland

Sunderland looked all over the place in their match against Hull and came away with a somewhat lucky victory, this result we can not see being lucky as we think Sunderland will dominate possession and the chances but we believe they will struggle to bypass the excellent Viktor Johansson between the sticks for Rotherham.
