Bristol City are at Ashton Gate for their final Championship game of the year against Rotherham United. The hosts have gone unbeaten for six matches but three successive draws in that run sees them seven points off the playoff positions. Rotherham, however, come off back-to-back losses and they are just clinging onto safety with a one-point advantage over the drop zone.

Betting Tips for the game
Bristol drew their third game on the bounce after settling for a 1-1 scoreline against Brentford. Eros Pisano opened the scoring for them before Neal Maupay levelled the proceedings for the visitors in the second half.
Rotherham, meanwhile, were on the losing side for the second successive game after they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers in a relegation six-pointer. Gary O’Neil netted the winner for Bolton shortly after the hour mark.
Bristol’s last encounter against Rotherham was at the New York Stadium in October which finished in a goalless draw. The previous meeting at Ashton Gate saw a 1-0 triumph for Bristol last year. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a Bristol win.

Rotherham are backed at 6.00 for the three points but we are not anticipating this outcome amid their winless run on the road this term. The visitors have struggled on their travels with just four points through the first half of the campaign and this should provide a much-needed boost for Bristol despite their inability to triumph at home since October. Our preview favours a Bristol win.

Bristol City vs Rotherham United draw odds: 3.80
Rotherham United win odds: 6.00
Correct Score odds
Both Bristol and Rotherham have not flourished in the scoring department of late and they have netted just six and five goals respectively during the past five games. Still, the former have been more resolute on the defensive front with an average of just one goal conceded to Rotherham’s two and this should ultimately make the difference this weekend. Our correct score prediction fancies a Bristol 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bristol have managed to restrict the opposition from scoring extensively on their home patch and just one of the past five matches have produced more than two goals. Rotherham have scored in each of the past three away trips while conceding at least twice. Our total goals prediction is to go more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Famara Diedhiou has been Bristol’s leading scorer this term and he has contributed six goals from 19 appearances. Among those, the Senegalese has netted just twice over the past month but he still remains a genuine scoring threat with his strong aerial attributes. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Famara Diedhiou.
