Cardiff welcome Rotherham to the Cardiff Stadium knowing that a win would do wonders for their Championship survival prospects. They are already 10 points clear of the drop zone, but three points against a side in the bottom three would allow them to breathe easier still. This preview includes expert betting tips and predictions.

Cardiff vs Rotherham betting tips for the game

Cardiff picked up a 2-1 win when these two sides played at the New York Stadium earlier in the season. Izzy Brown had put Rotherham in front before a brace from Rickie Lambert gave the Welshmen the points. This preview thinks they will take the win from this one as well, but Rotherham’s draw with Blackburn was a little impressive, so they may have it in them to score. The predictions and betting tips here do tend to sit on the side of Cardiff, though.

Cardiff vs Rotherham match odds

Cardiff are fairly easy favourites for this match, and the predictions in this preview also reflect that thinking. If a home win is your betting tip of choice, get over to BetFred, who have that at 4/7.

The draw is 3/1 with SkyBet, while a Rotherham win is 6/1 with BetVictor.

Cardiff vs Rotherham correct score bet

The next of our predictions is for Cardiff to repeat the scoreline from the reverse fixture earlier in the season. This preview thinks Rotherham will be up for a battle here, but Cardiff should have enough about them to get the job done. Our betting tip is therefore a 2-1 win in Cardiff’s favour. That can be backed at 15/2 with StanJames. Read on for more thoughts on just who we think will score Cardiff’s goals.

Cardiff vs Rotherham first goalscorer bet

In the humble opinion of those behind this preview, Peter Whittingham is the best betting tip to open the scoring. He is second in the club’s scoring charts this season, just two behind leader Anthony Pilkington. If he is one of your predictions to be first goalscorer, SkyBet have him at 8/1.

Cardiff vs Rotherham anytime goalscorer bet

As we just mentioned in this preview, Anthony Pilkington is the club’s top scorer this season. Bearing that in mind, we are going to make the next of our predictions that he will find the net at some stage during the game. Following on from the earlier tips, we think Peter Whittingham will score first and Anthony Pilkington to score their second in a 2-1 win. He is 3/2 with SkyBet to score at any stage during the game.
