Rotherham vs Norwich: Our top betting tips
Rotherham pushed Burnley awfully close in the week. Will they go one better than that here and get a result? Find out with our Rotherham vs Norwich match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Rotherham to win it
Backing Rotherham to beat Norwich feels like quite a bold call on paper but there is method to our madness. Firstly, it's worth noting that there is very little between these sides in the form guide – Norwich have taken five points from their last five games with Rotherham taking four; that changes slightly when looking at the respective home and away form with Rotherham having earned seven points from the last 15 available at home with Norwich taking five across the equivalent period in away games. With Rotherham having impressed in the week against Burnley, we fancy them to get a result here.
Both sides will score
We turn our attention now to the both teams to score market and we are backing the ‘yes' outcome. Rotherham have scored a total of seven goals across their last five games giving them an average of 1.4 goals scored per game. Norwich meanwhile have scored five goals across their past five matches giving them an average of 1.0 goal scored per game. When you the factor in the head to head record, which shows both teams hitting the net in four of the last five meetings, a ‘yes' bet looks very much like the best bet.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Rotherham vs Norwich
Can Norwich rediscover their form?
Norwich and Rotherham have different targets for this season but they'll both be ultra keen for the points with neither in a particularly glowing run of form. Rotherham's good start has dipped as they now find themselves in 14th, which is still a good position considering their preseason expectations, whilst Norwich, who would undoubtedly have had their eyes on the title back in July, are sat down in fifth. That's in no way a disaster but they'll want to start stringing together results soon.
Rotherham's only injury concern remains Peter Kioso, who is a long term absentee. Even with that noted, there is a strong chance they go with an unchanged XI having pushed league leaders Burnley so close in the week – the exception being Cohen Bramall, who was sent off in that game.
Rotherham Predicted lineup – Johansson, Harding, Norton-Cuffy, Peltier, Hall, Wood, Rathbone, Wiles, Barlaser, Odoffin, Washington
Norwich's recent run of form hasn't been Greta by any stretch and they are facing a few injury concerns now too. Andrew Omobamidele, Dimitris Giannoulis and Josh Sargent are all big names due to miss out here.
Norwich Predicted lineup – Gunn, Byram, Hanley, Gibson, McCallum, Gibbs, Hayden, Sara, Ramsey, Cantwell, Pukki
