Is it really worth talking about a game between the second and last place in a league? Especially if we’re talking about the English Championship, we’d tend to say no – second place is direct promotion to the Premier League, while last place goes to League One. The difference between the two sides seems tremendous on paper – but will it be the same on the football field?
Norwich vs Rotherham – 15/10/2016
Historically speaking, Norwich never lost against Rotherham. In their 10 clashes so far, Norwich won 3, the rest being all draws.
This season, the yellow and green team are battling for promotion, currently, sit in second place and won 6 of their last 7 games.
They have one of the best attacking records in the league, especially at home, where they are currently undefeated and have only dropped points once.
It’s really hard to find anything wrong about the team currently, and thus, we’ll be moving to analyze their opponents.
Rotherham is the exact opposite currently. Sitting last, with only 6 points and a single win, the team has recorded 4 straight defeats recently.
Sadly for them, they also lose against teams like Blackburn or Cardiff, which currently sit 23rd and 22nd in the league – which means their current form is beyond awful.
They have the worst defense in the league, conceding 25 goals, and have yet to bring any points from away games this season.
Norwich vs Rotherham Betting Tips
The conclusion here is simple: take profit of the huge 1,36 odds a home victory currently has – this is widely expected to drop in the near future.
We can’t find a single reason why Rotherham will be able to produce anything worth mentioning in this game, so we’re going with a clear home win.
If you’re looking for bigger odds, a handicap win (Norwich -1) is also a great idea. Take your pick, and good luck!
