Betting Tips for the game
Rotherham United secured their 10th draw of the campaign last weekend after settling for a 1-1 scoreline against Reading in their homeground. Joe Mattock saved the team’s blushes with a late 90th-minute equaliser.
West Brom, though, ended a run of two stalemates after they secured a 2-1 comeback triumph over Sheffield United on the road. Kieran Gibbs scored a 76th-minute winner to hand a fourth win in six matches for the Baggies.
The last meeting between the sides was in the League Cup second round nine years ago when West Brom prevailed by a 4-3 scoreline at the Hawthorns. Our betting tips and predictions expect another victory for Darren Moore’s side.

Rotherham are priced at 4.33 for a victory in their home patch and this exhibits the stiff challenge on the cards against the league’s top scorers. Rotherham have remained resolute in their stadium this term with just one defeat in August but the run has involved a number of stalemates. Against the Baggies, Rotherham should once more find success in terms of finding the scoresheet but the visitors have the better strikeforce to outscore them. Our preview is to go for a West Brom win.

Rotherham United vs West Brom draw odds: 3.75
Correct Score odds
Rotherham have found the scoresheet in each of their previous five league games and they have netted just one goal less than West Brom in this period. However, their defence has been a letdown with 10 goals conceded compared to the Baggies’ six and the same statistic may come to haunt them this weekend. Our correct score prediction is to go for a West Brom 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rotherham’s inability to keep clean sheets of late has contributed to high-scoring matches at the New York Stadium. Three of their previous four games have produced more than two goals and this outcome may repeat against West Brom, who have had three successive 2-1 wins on the road. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez have contributed to nearly 50 percent of West Brom’s goals this term and we are fancying the latter to find the opener this weekend. The ex-Southampton man has netted just two times in the previous five matches but one of those breached the deadlock. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Rodriguez.
