Predicting Rotherham’s games in the Sky Bet Championship has been rather easy this season. How else could it be for a team which has lost 18 of their 24 games and only won a single point in 13 away games? That being said, they do manage a surprise here and there while playing at home, and Norwich isn’t the most consistent team in the league as well. Can we see an upset this weekend?

Full Time Result: Rotherham 5.00 or 4/1, Draw 4.00 or 3/1, Norwich 1.72 or 8/11

Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.66 or 4/6, No 2.10 or 11/10
Although Rotherham is last, with only 13 points from 25 games, 12 of these points were won on their home ground – which doesn’t make them the weakest team in the division at home. They’ve won two of their last 5 home games, against fellowing strugglers Wigan and QPR, and are looking to continue the fight to avoid relegation back to the League One. Generally, they don’t manage to produce good football when coming against better opposition, so we don’t expect them to perform great against the Canaries.
Norwich, on the other hand, is coming after their best match of the season. After failing to find their feet in the Championship for quite a while, they’ve managed to beat Derby 3-0 last time out and have finally looked like real promotion contenders. Although their away form isn’t the best available, they have never lost to Rotherham in their previous encounters, and we hardly believe this will be the case this weekend.
Rotherham vs Norwich City Betting Tips
We’d even go ahead and predict a solo away win for this game. If you’re looking for different ideas, we’d also believe in a “both teams to score” bet or an “over 2,5” goal bet, since Rotherham have the habit of scoring at home. Sadly for them, they’ll probably concede way more than they manage to score. X2 is the safe alternative here because Norwich will almost surely avoid defeat.
