Burnley to win with both teams scoring
We begin our tips for this match by backing Burnley to win but with both sides netting. The Clarets have been in fantastic form of late and, in truth, have been all season long having lost just once so far. They've also won five of their last six matches. Rotherham meanwhile are winless in three games and, notably, have only managed to record a solitary win from their league away games this season. The Millers also have a pretty ropey record against Burnley in head to head terms; Burnley have won each of the last three and have lost to Rotherham in just two of the last 10 clashes between the teams. That covers the Burnley to win logic. The both teams to score explanation is simple; Burnley have conceded in three of their last four whilst Rotherham have scored in four of their past five.
Going over 2.5 goals
Our next prediction for this match sees us backing over 2.5 goals in the total goals market. Burnley have seen three of their last five matches go north of that marker with a game average of 3.2 goals per match. Rotherham have also seen three of their last five games go over the 2.5 cut off but they've seen a total of 15 goals across those matches giving them a game average of 3.0 goals. Finally, two of the last three – and three of the last five – head to head meetings have produced at least three goals.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Burnley vs Rotherham
Burnley to remain on top
Rotherham had made a strong start to this season but their results have dried up a tad of late and their points tally isn't all that much superior to the sides struggling near the bottom with fourth bottom Middlesbrough just three points behind them. Burnley by contrast have been strong all season and, notably, have started to turn draws into wins of late as they look to take hold of the title race. With both sides holding strong ambitions – albeit very different ones – for the season, the points on offer here are huge.
Burnley continue to find ways to win football matches right now and whilst they'll be confident of winning this game with the same XI as they started with at the weekend there are a few names on the sidelines that would be a welcome return to the squad; most notably in that list is Scott Twine. He's unlikely to make it in time for this one though.
Burnley Predicted lineup – Muric, Roberts, Harwood-Bellis, Beyer, Maatsen, Bastien, Brownhill, Zaroury, Tella, Gudmundsson, Rodriguez
Rotherham need to get back to being solid and hard to beat just to continue adding a few points here and there to the impressive tally they amassed during the early part of the season. They'll have their work cut out here though and are without Peter Kioso and Chiedozie Ogbene.
Rotherham Predicted lineup – Johansson, Wood, Humphreys, Peltier, Harding, Bramall, Rathbone, Barlaser, Wiles, Kelly, Washington
