Blackburn Rovers entertain Rotherham United in this weekend’s league meeting at Ewood Park. The hosts ceased their recent winless run after beating Queens Park Rangers in the weekend and it places them just one point behind the playoff positions. Rotherham celebrated their first victory since mid-September to bridge a two-point gap to the drop zone.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn returned to winning ways after two league matches after they secured a close 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers. Bradley Dack netted the sole goal from the penalty spot in the 87th minute.
Rotherham, meanwhile, ended an eight-match winless streak as they secured a surprise 2-1 comeback win over Swansea City. Ryan Manning starred for the minnows with two penalty goals in the final 15 minutes of the game.
The previous encounter between the sides was at the New York Stadium in January and it finished in a 1-1 draw. The last meeting at Ewood Park saw Blackburn run out 2-0 victors. Our betting tips and predictions expect a home win.

Rotherham are offered tempting odds of 5.00 for the win but we do not expect this outcome. The visitors have stayed clear of the drop zone for the opening 16 games but their away form has been woeful with just two of their 19 points resulting on the road. Blackburn are on a two-match winning run at Ewood Park. Our preview is to go for a Blackburn win.

Blackburn Rovers vs Rotherham United draw odds: 3.80
Rotherham United win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds
Blackburn have been consistent in finding the net in front of their supporters and they have netted at least one goal in six of their eight matches. Rotherham have been far from impressive on the road and they come into the clash after failing to score in more than half of their away trips. Our correct score prediction fancies a Blackburn 2-0 win with a clean sheet.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The history of the fixture has been low scoring as just one of the previous six meetings have produced more than two goals. Rotherham have drawn a blank in five of their eight away trips this season. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack has been Blackburn’s leading scorer this term with nine goals across all competitions. Among those, the attacker has managed seven in the Championship including the only strike in the recent win over Queens Park Rangers. Dack netted the opening goal when the teams met last time around. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Dack.
