Rotherham vs Sheffield Utd: Our top betting predictions

This game might be promotion contenders (Sheffield United) against relegation strugglers (Rotherham) but the added spice of the clash being a Yorkshire derby might just make things interesting. Who will come out on top? Find out with our Rotherham vs Sheffield Utd match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Backing a shock draw

We kick off our tips for this game in a fairly bold manner as we back Rotherham to take a point. The league table will tell you we're bonkers for suggesting such a result but there is a few bits of evidence to prove we're following a logical train of thought. Firstly, Sheffield United have failed to win in two of their past three away games. Secondly, Rotherham beat them at Bramall Lane in the reverse fixture back in November. Then , finally, you can look at Rotherham's form of late; they tucked up Blackburn 4-0 in their last home game and then drew with Watford, who are just one place below Sheffield United in the table, last time out. The Blades are clear favourites to win the game but a draw could be the smart value choice.

Going over 2.5 goals

Our next prediction will be easier to swallow than the first as we turn to the total goals market for an over 2.5 goals bet. Rotherham have passed that 2.5 threshold in each of their last five home games with a total haul of 21 goals giving them a game average of 4.2 goals. Sheffield United meanwhile have seen three of their last five away games go north of that 2.5 marker with a game average of 2.8 goals. On top of that, the last three meetings between these sides at Rotherham's home ground have gone over the required 2.5 cut off.

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 and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Rotherham odds: 7/2 (4.50) – 22%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26%

Sheffield Utd odds: 8/11 (1.73) – 58%

We've already delved into the fact Sheffield United are big favourites for the win but with the draw and home win odds on offer there is an opportunity to exploit some serious value. Other ways you could look to bet on this match could include the both teams to score market, where both ‘yes' and ‘no' are odds on whilst simply backing Rotherham to score is available at odds of 3/5 (1.60) too; Sheffield United shipped three goals to non-league Wrexham last time out!

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Rotherham vs Sheffield Utd

Rotherham

Rotherham have found a little bit of form since being pumped by League One Ipswich in the cup. Their point at Vicarage Road is the most comparable thing to how this game could play out and a very similar lineup should be expected. Jordan Hugill could come in for his debut though.

Predicted lineup – Johansson, Peltier, Morrison, Humphrys, Hjelde, Rathbone, Barlaser, Odoffin, Ferguson, Fosu, Hugill

Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United left it late to draw with non-league Wrexham last time out but this game will be different. We are anticipating a return to the team that beat Hull. Deadline day interest in Sander Berge and Iliman Ndiaye is not believed to have unsettled the pair.

Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Robinson, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Berge, Boyle, Doyle, Lowe, Norwood, Nidiaye, Jebbison

Player to watch

Iliman NDiaye was attracting Premier League interest all January but showed real maturity – especially considering he is just 22-years-old – to remain focussed on the job at hand with the Blades. With 10 goals and eight assists to his name so far this season, interest in him is unsurprising. Now though he is tasked with firing Sheffield United to the promised land. It starts here.
