Rotherham United are at the New York Stadium for the midweek league clash against Bristol City. Rotherham ended their two-match losing streak with a draw against Stoke City over the weekend but they still remain within four points off the drop zone. Bristol have witnessed a similar run of form in the last three matches but they are much better placed with a one-point deficit to the playoff positions.

Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham enter the game on the back of a three-match winless run after they squandered their advantage to Stoke last weekend. Rotherham were comfortably leading by two goals heading into the hour mark but the Potters launched a fightback to share the spoils in a 2-2 draw.
Bristol have faced a similar run with a single point from their previous three games and that came via 1-1 draw against Aston Villa last weekend. Josh Brownhill handed Bristol the advantage but they were pegged back before half time after a Birkir Bjarnason strike.
Rotherham’s recent meeting against Bristol City was at the Ashton Gate last year where they suffered a 1-0 defeat. Their last home encounter against the same opposition ended in a 2-2 draw in 2009. Our betting tips and predictions fancy an away win for Bristol.

Rotherham are given a price of 3.50 for the win but the result appears unlikely based on their recent form. Compared to their away run, Rotherham have excelled in their home patch where they have picked up each of their points this term, but they have a weakness in the scoring department which may hamper them against an attacking-minded team like Bristol. Moreover, they are in an injury-crisis with several key players likely to miss the clash and this should play into the hands of Bristol. Our preview fancy Bristol to secure the three points.

Rotherham United win odds: 3.50
Rotherham United vs Bristol City draw odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Rotherham’s league run has been extensively assisted by their home run where they have already secured three 1-0 victories. However, they are expected to do without the advances of key striker Jamie Proctor for the next six weeks with a groin strain and this should restrict their prowess upfront. We are anticipating Bristol to pick up their third league win of the season. Our correct score prediction fancies a Bristol 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rotherham had played out three 1-0 wins in their home turf before they were opened up by Stoke in a 2-2 scoreline last weekend. We are expecting another free-scoring game this weekend with Bristol seeking to take advantage of the hosts’ injury concerns. Our total goals prediction anticipates more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Andreas Weimann has been Bristol’s most successful scorer this term with five goals in 10 appearances. The former Aston Villa man has not scored in the last five games for Bristol but he has a good record against Rotherham with three goals from as many appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Weimann.
