Rotherham vs Blackburn: Our top betting predictions

Rotherham find themselves very much in a relegation battle right now and things don't get easier as they welcome a Blackburn side just re-finding their form. Can the Millers get a result or does another defeat await? Find out with our Rotherham vs Blackburn match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Blackburn to win

Had this game taken place a couple of weeks ago we might have called things slightly differently but, right now, it is hard to look beyond an away win hence we're kicking off our predictions by backing Blackburn to win. Rovers had lost three games on the spin over the festive season but have now won back to back games having beaten Cardiff at home and Norwich away. Rotherham meanwhile remain in a rut. They have not won in seven and have managed just two draws in the spell too. To cap off their troublesome run, at close to full strength they were battered 4-1 in the FA Cup last week by League One Ipswich, who had made a host of changes. A rejuvenated Blackburn visiting isn't what they need right now!

Rotherham will blank

Our next prediction for this game sees us backing Blackburn to keep a clean sheet as we bet on Rotherham's total goal to fall south of the 0.5 marker. Rotherham have failed to score in three of their last five matches and of the three goals they've scored in that period, one has been an own goal with another coming from the penalty spot. Their attacking threat is limited. Combine that with Blackburn having recorded two clean sheets on the spin and you can imagine the Millers fluffing their lines again. At 17/10 (2.70), we think there is good value to be had.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Rotherham odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 31%

Draw odds: 12/5 (3.20) – 29%

Blackburn odds: 6/5 (2.20) – 46%

There is no question that there will be a lot of people loading Blackburn into their betslips ahead of this weekend. The bookies pricing them up north of the evens mark feels very generous given the form Rotherham, who are priced significantly longer than their visitors, have shown. Perhaps those odds are born out of the bookmakers predicting this will be a tight game; that's evidenced in the manner with which the total goals betting is priced.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Rotherham vs Blackburn

Rotherham

Rotherham only made one change to their starting lineup last week despite facing lower league opposition. We're expecting them to go with a similar approach here but with Dan Barlaser likely to start. On the injury front, Ben Wiles and Grant Hall are the biggest names missing; both are due back this month.

Predicted lineup – Johansson (GK), Humphreys, Wood, Harding, Ferguson, Bramall, Odoffin, Kioso, Rathbone, Barlaser, Washington

Blackburn

Blackburn arrive into this game off the back of breaking their poor run of form with back to back wins and with just two injuries in the squad, namely Callum Brittain and Sam Barnes, they will be highly confident of getting a result at the New York Stadium. We expect Ben Brereton Diaz to play despite transfer links.

Predicted lineup – Kaminski (GK), Pickering, Hyam, Ayala, Rankin-Costello, Morton, Garrett, Hedges, Diaz, Dack, Gallagher

Player to watch

Blackburn have a side stacked with talent for this level of football but we're highlighting Bradley Dack in this match. He's been an instrumental player in Rovers' recent wins, which have coincided with them breaking their losing run. Both of those games have ended 1-0 with Dack registering a goal and assist. Rotherham will need to keep him under a close eye.
