The West Brom vs Rotherham odds illustrate just how big the gulf is in quality between the two teams. West Brom are chasing Premier League football while Rotherham already know they are going to play in League One next season so there is every chance that there will be a two-league gap between the two clubs in just a few months.

West Brom have been going along nicely of late but too many draws have seen them drift further away from the top four and closer to 7th and beyond. They need to get back to winning ways so the fact they are facing a team rock bottom of the Championship is ideal for them.

For Rotherham, this match is nothing more than a chance to restore an element of pride after another disappointing Championship campaign. The Millers are the ultimate Championship to League One yo-yo club and with another season looming in England's third tier, the squad will be tasked with playing for their positions ahead of the next campaign.

In addition to the aforementioned free betting tips, consider Brandon Thomas-Asante to score anytime at 11/10 (2.10).

Last five H2Hs: Further good news for West Brom

West Brom preview: Time to hit top form

Yann M'Vila was the villain of the piece at the weekend when he conceded a penalty against Stoke so his place in the team is far from secure heading into this one. Cedric Kipre and Matt Phillips are both on their way back from injury issues but Maja, Dike and Molumby are all out.

Predicted lineup: Palmer (GK) Furlong, Bartley, Kipre, Townsend, Yokuslu, Mowatt, Diangana, Wallace, Johnston, Thomas-Asante

Player to watch: Brandon Thomas-Asante

Brandon Thomas-Asante is West Brom's top goalscorer this season and the Baggies are going to need him firing on all cylinders if they are to enjoy a strong end to the season and achieve promotion via the playoffs.

Time to find form

Although Thomas-Asante has scored 11 goals this season for West Brom, he has struggled in front of goal of late. He has just one goal in his last 11 appearances, a return that simply isn't going to cut it if West Brom are to be promoted.
