Aston Villa look for a first win in eight matches when they host Rotherham at Villa Park in the midweek action. Villa have slipped out of the top six places and they are now just a point away from Rotherham, who have done well to utilise home advantage and pick up a decent set of points. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game

Rotherham were able to pick up a 1-0 win over Derby County in the recent game. This was the third victory for Rotherham in four matches at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Villa’s recent home game against Rotherham finished as a comprehensive 3-0 victory while their last trip to the AESSEAL New York Stadium saw them pick up a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Aston Villa.

Rotherham are at a price of 7.50 to win the match. Even though the two teams are separated just by a point coming into this match, Aston Villa will be boosted by the late point against Blackburn while they also have a sizeable home advantage. Even though Villa have taken just one home win in three matches this season, they are up against a Rotherham team that has lost all of its away matches this season. Both meetings between these two teams at Villa Park have also finished in favour of the host, who are our pick to win the match.

Aston Villa vs Rotherham United draw odds: 4.20
Rotherham United win odds: 7.50
Correct Score odds
Villa have been unable to claim a win in five league matches and it has largely been down to their inability to keep a clean sheet. In fact, Villa have been unable to keep a clean sheet in all seven league matches this season. Rotherham’s only away goal this season was an injury time effort against Brentford in the opening game of the campaign. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Villa.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The defeat against Sheffield United is the only time Aston Villa have conceded over 2.5 goals this season. Even though the defence of the team is not the best around, they are good enough to keep a Rotherham team out at bay. Our total goals prediction would go for under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 2.07[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Jonathan Kodjia was able to score one of the goals in Aston Villa’s last game with Rotherham, with he still remains as the top scorer at the club with three league goals. Despite the 28-year-old failing to score in three matches for Villa, our first goalscorer prediction would back Kodjia.
