Rotherham United vs Leeds United – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Rotherham United welcome Leeds United to the New York Stadium for Saturday’s afternoon kick-off. The hosts have managed just one win in the past 10 matches but they are still two points ahead of the drop zone due to their regular tendency to pick up points in their stadium. Leeds, meanwhile, are right at the top of the standings but their form has been unimpressive over the past four games where they have bagged just three points. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham suffered their fifth defeat from six matches after a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Brentford. Kamohelo Mokotjo was the pick of the players for the opposition with a goal in either half.
Leeds were on the losing end in the past weekend with Stoke City beating them by a 2-1 score. The west Yorkshire outfit have suffered defeats in three of the previous four games.
Rotherham previously tackled Leeds United at Elland Road in August where the latter were victorious by a 2-0 scoreline. The last meeting at the New York Stadium was three years ago and that saw Leeds celebrate a 2-1 triumph. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Leeds win.

Rotherham are offered odds of 5.50 for the win and that exemplifies the momentous task on their hands to overcome Leeds. Paul Warne’s side have been hugely dependent on their home form for success but this has also deserted them in recent games where Brentford and West Brom have beaten them heavily. Leeds will be determined to return to winning ways to keep up their promotion hunt and Rotherham could expect another tough afternoon. Our preview predicts a comfortable Leeds win.

Rotherham United win odds: 5.50
Rotherham United vs Leeds United draw odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
Rotherham don’t possess the same frontline attributes as compared to Leeds and they have scored 20 goals less than their compatriots through the campaign. The hosts are likely to find the net after drawing a blank in their stadium on just one occasion since October, but we are anticipating Leeds to outclass with the eventual score. Our correct score prediction favours a Leeds 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rotherham have been defensively vulnerable through the season and the same has hampered them in their home patch where they have conceded nine goals in the past three games. This should lean towards another high-scoring encounter with Leeds possessing the quality upfront to unlock the opposition backline. Our total goals prediction is to go with more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe has emerged as Leeds’ prime goalscorer this term and he has already netted 14 times in the league. The ex-Oxford United man has been in good form of late with three goals in five appearances and he can be backed to make his mark against Rotherham after previously scoring against them in August. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Roofe.
