Nottingham Forest welcome Rotherham United for Saturday’s Championship showdown at City Ground. The hosts have tended to draw most of their games this term but they are still within two points off the playoff positions. Rotherham have picked up surprise results at home against the likes of Derby County and they are mid-table with a three-point gap to the drop zone.

Betting Tips for the game
Forest ended a four-match run without a victory in midweek as they beat Sheffield Wednesday by a 2-1 scoreline. Lewis Grabban and Joao Carvalho found the scoresheet for Forest before Steven Fletcher bagged a late consolation.
Rotherham, meanwhile, suffered their fifth defeat of the campaign, as they were downed 2-0 by Aston Villa on Tuesday night. Tammy Abraham and Yannick Bolasie bagged the goals in the first and second-half respectively.
Forest previously contested Rotherham at the City Ground in January 2017 where they secured a comfortable 2-0 triumph. Our betting tips and predictions expect Forest to secure a third league win of the season.

Rotherham are priced at 5.50 for a win but we are not expecting this result with their poor away run. Since the season has started, Rotherham have struggled on their travels and they are still searching for their maiden away point. As a result, the game should fancy the hosts, who are unbeaten at home this term and they have not lost to Rotherham since 1956. Our preview fancies a Forest win.

Rotherham United win odds: 5.50
Correct Score odds
Forest have been impressive with their home form this term and they have already eight points from four matches. On the contrary, Rotherham are yet to pick up a point on their travels and more concerning has been their failure to score in three of those. Forest should fancy a solid victory on top of a third clean sheet this campaign. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Nottingham Forest 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Forest have drawn six out of their eight matches this season and half of their games produced two or less goals. Another low-scoring contest could be on the cards this weekend with Rotherham drawing blank in three of their four away trips. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.95[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Lewis Grabban started the season in a rather dull fashion but he managed to end his scoring drought in midweek where he opened the scoring in the victory over Wednesday. He has fared decently against Rotherham with one goal in three attempts. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Grabban.
