Preston North End are at the Deepdale Stadium for a game against relegation rival Rotherham this weekend. Preston are now up to 19th in the table after picking up a few points in recent matches, while Rotherham slipped to 21st in the table after the latest set of results in the midweek action. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Preston were involved in a rollercoaster 4-3 win over Brentford, as Alex Neil’s men capitalised on a team that recently underwent a managerial change following the departure of Dean Smith.

A trip to the North provided a 0-0 draw for Rotherham, as they secured a point against Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium. This was the fourth stalemate for Paul Warne’s men in the last five games.

The recent game between these two clubs produced a 1-1 draw in April 2017. This match was also at the Deepdale Stadium. Our betting tips and prediction expect a win for Preston.

Match odds

Rotherham are at a price of 5.75 to win the match. Yet, we would not pick this choice. Even though Warne’s men have lost only once in the previous five games, they travel to the Deepdale Stadium with a horrendous away record. Rotherham picked up a point against Middlesbrough but Tony Pulis’ men had more than enough chances to inflict a seventh consecutive away defeat upon Warne’s men. Preston will have gained confidence from the recent win over Brentford, and it also happens to be the second consecutive win at Deepdale. Our preview would go with a win for Preston.

Preston vs Rotherham draw odds: 4.00

Rotherham win odds: 5.75

Correct Score odds

Preston have been able to average more than two goals per game at home, while Rotherham create very little opportunities when it comes to away games. It is not a surprise that the promoted team have been able to grab just one goal in the last six away games. Preston should have an easy day out with a 2-0 win, according to our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Preston have gone through several high scoring matches over the last few weeks. In fact, all of the club’s games at the Deepdale Stadium this season – apart from the opening day win over QPR – have been with more than 2.5 goals. This time around, Rotherham’s lack of strength going forward should end up producing less than 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds

Callum Robinson came up with a brace against Brentford to take his season’s tally to 6 goals and an assist in close to 1200 minutes of action. Robinson has been able to score in four out of the last five games at Deepdale. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Callum Robinson.
