Rotherham United hope to avoid hitting a break to their current form when they host Norwich City at the New York Stadium this weekend. Rotherham have been able to receive a major boost in their aim to avoid relegation after moving level on points with Reading and Wigan following the latest set of results. Rotherham, though, are up against Championship leaders Norwich, who have been able to hold off Leeds and Sheffield United so far. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham United were able to manage a 2-1 victory over QPR to make it two wins in the last three matches. These six points have been immensely helpful in putting the club on the verge of escaping the bottom three.
Norwich City have a two-point advantage over Leeds United after a 3-2 success over Hull City at the Carrow Road. This was the fifth consecutive success for Daniel Farke’s men.
The reverse fixture produced a 3-1 victory for Norwich at Carrow Road, but there was a shock upset when Norwich travelled to the New York Stadium in their last visit. Rotherham picked up a 2-1 victory after Norwich played with 10 men for most of the game. Our betting tips and predictions expect Norwich to register a first win on this ground since 2015.

Rotherham have been able to register two crucial victories in the last three matches, but they are up against a much better team like Norwich. Despite managing five consecutive successes in the league, Norwich are only two points ahead of Leeds United coming into the match. Even though Norwich have not been outstanding when it comes to away results, the need to keep ahead of Leeds and Sheffield United will be a strong motivation for any team to pick up the victory. Our preview would go with a victory for Norwich.

Correct Score odds
Norwich have been able to come up with over 2.5 goals in four out of the last five matches. They are up against a Rotherham outfit that has been struggling for clean sheets but Paul Warne’s men have not been goals are either. Apart from failing to score against Sheffield United, Rotherham have been quite good going forward since February. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for Norwich.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The home game against Swansea is the only example of a low scoring game involving Norwich in the last 10 matches across all competitions. Even though Daniel Farke’s men have been able to lead the table, they have not been defensively sound. The situation of witnessing goals at both ends is likely to lead to over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.72[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Emiliano Buendia has been in stunning form for Norwich over the last three matches. He has come up with three goals and two assists in his three appearances this month. Even though Teemu Pukki is the favourite for the Golden Boot title and the top scorer at Norwich this season, our first goalscorer prediction would go with Buendia due to recent form.
