Luton vs Rotherham: Our top betting tips

It looks hugely likely that Luton will be coming into this match without a manager with Nathan Jones on the brink of being confirmed Southampton boss. Will they suffer a hangover? Find out with our Luton vs Rotherham match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Rotherham to grab a point

We kick off our tips here by backing a draw. Luton have a solid home record with no defeat in six but that doesn't mean they're a winning machine – four of those six games have ended in draws. Rotherham meanwhile have lost a couple of games on the road of late but seven points from their last five games on the road is far from a travesty. With the Millers capable of picking up results away from home and Luton likely to suffer a disrupted build up there is a real chance for them to get a result. Last time these two sides met we saw them share the spoils as well.

A low scoring match

Luton vs Rotherham hardly screams out as being a humdinger of a match and we don't foresee a classic; that's why we are backing this game to serve up fewer than three goals with an under 2.5 goals prediction. Luton have seen each of their last four games fall south of that aforementioned 2.5 marker with three of Rotherham's last five away games also coming up short of the 2.5 cut off. You can take that further if you want too; look at the season as a whole – Rotherham average bang on 2.5 goals per game but that becomes 2.0 in away games with Luton averaging 2.2 to this point of the campaign with their home average of 2.4 also under the all important marker. Finally, each of the last two head to head games have come in under 2.5 too.

Here are the key stats & form guide for Luton vs Rotherham

A clash between two sides destined for midtable?

Luton and Rotherham have made solid starts to the season but, longer term, their ambitions for the season are different. Luton will have been eyeing a playoff chase with Rotherham just keen to avoid the drop. Now though, the Millers will be keen to establish themselves in midtable whilst Luton's ambitious plans to mix it up with the top six will probably have to be re-evaluated owing to the loss of Nathan Jones – he's been a huge figure for the Hatters. With that considered, this feels like it has the makings of a very much midtable clash.

Nathan Jones leaving Kenilworth Road is a real blow to Luton and, especially with the timing, this weekend is likely to be somewhat of a rush to get organised. With that considered, a temporary boss is likely to come into the fold and therefore mass changes are unlikely.

Luton Predicted lineup – Horvath, Bree, Lockyer, Osho, Bell, Campbell, Clark, Mpanzu, Cornick, Morris, Adebayo

Rotherham ended a tough run of fixtures with a really impressive win over Sheffield United last time out. With just the one player, George Kelly, one the sidelines we can expect the Millers to go with the same XI here.

Rotherham Predicted lineup – Johansson, Bramall, Harding, Humphreys, Peltier, Kioso, Wiles, Lindsay, Barlaser, Rathbone, Ogbene
