Sunderland vs Rotherham United – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can the Millers cause an upset against Sunderland in the Black Cats’ first match after the departure of manager Alex Neil? Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Rotherham Double Chance

Sunderland’s first campaign back in the Championship was thrown into crisis this week with the shock announcement that popular manager Alex Neil was moving to Stoke City and the Black Cats could be vulnerable for the visit of Rotherham on Wednesday as a result. The Millers are unbeaten after five games of the new season and they are well-drilled enough to pile on the misery for Sunderland in midweek. With that in mind, bettors should consider taking advantage of the generous Rotherham double chance markets here.

Both Teams to Score

Despite some mixed results, Sunderland have been reliable performers in front of goal since their promotion and they managed to find the net in five of their first six Championship assignments of the season. Rotherham have failed to score just once in five attempts themselves and the Millers can be backed with confidence to register on Wednesday. A combination of those factors makes a stake on both teams to score a must this week.
