Tip Reasoning

Rotherham look doomed to League One football next term and it is their miserable away record that is primarily responsible for that. With Brentford in great form in front of goal right now, a convincing home win looks likely here.

The Bees have scored twice or more in all of their last 5 matches and they weren’t easy games either, with 3 of those matches against sides currently in the top six. Their 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night will send them into this game on a real high. They’ve responded well to the departure of top scorer Scott Hogan and have found alternative sources for goals.

One man who has made a difference to their attacking threat is January recruit Sergi Canos. He popped up with a few important goals on loan at Griffin Park last term and this game may be ideal for him, given the weaknesses in the Rotherham back-line. Therefore, backing Sergi Canos to score anytime at 21/10 could be worth a punt.

Brentford have scored a very respectable 1.67 goals per home game this term and have netted 3 or more on 4 occasions at Griffin Park. That could spell trouble for Rotherham who have conceded a shocking 2.82 goals per game away, including 5 at Cardiff last weekend. They’d fought well in recent months up until that point but that defeat and the manner of it was surely the final nail in their coffin and confidence in the Millers camp will be fragile coming into this game.

They also have the worst overall defensive record in the division and have collected just 1 point from 17 away games so far this season. That alone suggests a home win is practically guaranteed here and with Brentford in good touch in front of goal, it has the potential to get a bit ugly again for the away side. Brentford have let in 11 goals in their last 4 matches though so the visitors may get a chance or two themselves and all things considered backing Brentford to Win & Over 2.5 Goals at 21/20 looks to offer value.
