Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham have been able to register a 1-1 draw against Reading at the Madejski Stadium to make it five consecutive stalemates in the league. Even though Rotherham are unbeaten in five games, they are also without a victory in nine matches across all competitions.
Blackburn were held to a 2-2 draw by Birmingham during the weekend. Just when it seemed that Blackburn had achieved a remarkable comeback, Birmingham came up with a late goal to draw the game.
Even the reverse meeting between Blackburn and Rotherham earlier in the campaign produced a draw. It was a familiar story when these two teams last met each other at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a stalemate.

Meanwhile, Rotherham have drawn five consecutive matches to make it 15 stalemates so far this season. It is an incredible tally considering that Rotherham have effectively drawn 50% of their league games this season. Our preview would go with a draw.

Correct Score odds
There have been only a handful of goals involving Rotherham over the last few games. It is not a surprise with the team averaging a goal per game so far this season, while Blackburn are slightly better on this regard. After having witnessed a 1-1 draw in both of the recent games at AESSEAL New York Stadium between these two teams, our correct score prediction would go with more of the same.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two teams that do not score many goals. Rotherham have only managed seven goals whereas Blackburn have picked up eight goals in the last six matches. There is unlikely to be a major shift in this trend. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
There have been five different scorers for Rotherham in the last four league matches. Meanwhile, Danny Graham has been in good form for Blackburn and he has just become the joint top scorer at the club with 11 league goals. He has been able to get three goals in his last seven games. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Danny Graham.
