Rotherham United will be aiming to jump above the relegation places when they face Sheffield Wednesday in Saturday’s early kick-off at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United FC vs Sheffield Wednesday FC – Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham settled for a third successive league draw after a 2-2 scoreline on the road to Hull City. Hull took a 2-0 lead within 25 minutes but Rotherham made a strong comeback with Anthony Forde and Robbie McKenzie finding the net following the interval.
Wednesday, meanwhile, went unbeaten for the fourth game on the bounce after a goalless draw on the road to Millwall. The result meant that they have kept four clean sheets on the trot while picking up eight points.
The previous encounter between the sides was at the Hillsborough Stadium in December which finished in a 2-2 draw. The last meeting at the New York Stadium ended 2-0 in Wednesday’s favour two years ago. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a Rotherham win.
Rotherham United FC vs Sheffield Wednesday FC – Match odds
Wednesday have fared better than Rotherham in the past four matches but they have still struggled in the scoring department where they have netted just twice. This is where Rotherham should capitalise with their recent consistency and we are fancying them to edge out the visitors in a low-scoring affair. Our preview predicts Rotherham to return to winning ways.
Rotherham United vs Sheffield Wednesday draw odds: 3.10
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 2.60
Rotherham United FC vs Sheffield Wednesday FC – Correct Score odds
Rotherham and Wednesday have played out stalemates in the past two league games but the former have been more effective in the scoring department with three goals compared to the visitors’ none. Wednesday will no doubt keep things tight after a run of four successive shutouts but their lack of cutting edge upfront may hamper them against a Rotherham side, who generally find the scoresheet at home. Our correct score prediction anticipates a slender 1-0 win for Rotherham.
Rotherham United FC vs Sheffield Wednesday FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rotherham have recently been the subject of high-scoring matches in their stadium but the same may not be the case against Wednesday. The majority of those games have produced goals from the opposition but Wednesday may not replicate the same after netting just three times in the past five away matches. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.
Rotherham United FC vs Sheffield Wednesday FC – First Goalscorer odds
Michael Smith has been regularly leading the line for Rotherham and he has started for the team in 31 of the 32 league matches. The 27-year-old has scored just once in the league since the turn of the year but he can be fancied to find the net against a goal-shy Wednesday after previously scoring in the reverse fixture. Our first goalscorer prediction favours Michael Smith.
