Tip Reasoning

This looks like a home banker, given Rotherham’s shocking away record this season. The Millers are still conceding far too many goals and a relatively comfortable Cardiff win looks likely here.

The Bluebirds were in fine touch in front of goal in midweek when they won a 4-3 thriller at promotion hopefuls Derby County. That completed an outstanding away double for Cardiff, having won at Leeds just a few days earlier but it does make this game something of a potential banana skin. Neil Warnock will no doubt be drilling that into his players though and with wins in 6 of their last 9 league games, they ought to get the job done if they are at even 80% of the level they’ve reached in the last two games.

The visit of a Rotherham defence that has conceded a woeful 2.69 goals per game on their travels this term, will be music to the ears of Cardiff’s attacking players. They’ve tended to use Kenneth Zohorè as their lone striker of late and the Dane has started to deliver the goods with goals in 2 of his last 4 games. He should get chances to add to that here given the opposition and backing Zohorè to score anytime at 6/4 looks to offer value.

Rotherham have lost 94% of their away league games this term. They’ve only picked up 1 point from 16 away Championship games and that is the main reason they look doomed to League One. Certainly given that, it’s impossible to look past a home win here but potential returns are low if you just back Cardiff to win outright. For a side in their position, the Millers do have a goal in them and both teams have netted in 56% of their games this term.

A massive 81% of their away games have produced over 2.5 goals and up against a Cardiff side that was involved in a 7 goal thriller in midweek, there should be several goals in this too. Most should go the way of the in-form hosts so backing Cardiff & Over 2.5 Match Goals at 5/4 looks to offer value.
