Rotherham United are at the New York Stadium for the weekend’s league fixture against Brentford. The hosts have been hugely dependent on their home form for success this term and they are just about staying safe with a two-point advantage over the drop zone. Brentford are in the bottom half of the standings but they have some leeway with eight points separating them from the relegation places. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham suffered their fourth defeat in five matches after being beaten 1-0 on the road to Ipswich Town. Will Keane netted the winner in the 31st minute to help Ipswich keep their survival hopes alive.
Brentford, meanwhile, went unbeaten for the fifth game on the bounce after securing a 3-1 triumph against Stoke City. The victory was the second for the Capital outfit in the previous five league matches.
The previous meeting between the sides was at Griffin Park for the curtain raiser where Brentford ran ragged with a comfortable 5-1 win. The last encounter at the New York Stadium was two years ago which finished in a 1-0 triumph for Rotherham. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Rotherham are fancied at 4.00 for the three points while Brentford are backed for the same at 1.90. Brentford are in a better run of form when comparing the teams but their away form has been woeful and they are still searching their maiden away win of the season. In comparison, Rotherham have largely relied on their home form where they have picked up 84 percent of their points but their limited prowess upfront makes our preview fancy a share of the spoils.

Rotherham United win odds: 4.00
Brentford win odds: 1.90
Correct Score odds
Rotherham have averaged less than one goal on average in the Championship this term and this has remained the case in the past five matches where they have bagged three goals when compared to Brentford’s six. Still, they have a good record against Brentford at home with three wins in the past four meetings and we are backing them to get something from the game with the visitors keeping just one shutout on the road. Our correct score prediction favours a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rotherham have generally played out low-scoring encounters against Brentford in their stadium with the last three matches producing a maximum of two goals. The trend may continue with Brentford’s latest visit as Rotherham are dependent on their home form for success and will seek to avoid a negative result. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has been Brentford’s main scoring source this term with 15 goals and we are fancying him to open the scoresheet on the road to Rotherham. The Frenchman scored a brace in the previous meeting against Rotherham which included the first goal. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Maupay.
