Sheffield Wednesday FC vs Rotherham United FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wednesday have produced more than two goals in 70% of their home matches this term but we are expecting the trend to change this weekend, given the opposition is unlikely to present a regular goalscoring threat. Moreover, Rotherham have generally avoided heavy defeats on their travels with three of their previous four outings witnessing a maximum of two goals. Our total goals prediction is to go for less than 2.5 goals.
Sheffield Wednesday FC vs Rotherham United FC – First Goalscorer odds
Steven Fletcher has gone through a tough campaign where he has managed just three goals from 18 league appearances. Nonetheless, he has a strong record against Rotherham. The Scotland international bagged the opening goals in both matches when the visitors were previously in the Championship during the 2016/17 season. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Steven Fletcher.
