      Tip Reasoning

      Rotherham narrowly avoided relegation to League One last season when they finished 21st, five points above the last of the drop spots.

      It looks like they could be in for another battle this season as well, with their nine point haul after 12 matches being well below par.

      This leaves them in 23rd position in the Championship, with only Bolton propping them and the rest of the table up.

      Rotherham have only won two of their last 12 matches in all competitions, with seven of these 12 games ending in defeat for the struggling side.

      Sheffield Wednesday are coming into this game in much better form than the home side. They are unbeaten in seven matches in all competitions, with four wins and three draws bringing them out of their spell of poor form back in August.

      They had only won one in six back then, and this poor start to the season means they are further down the table than they would hope for considering their form at the moment.

      Their form has brought them up to 9th place in the Championship though, with their 17 points being four fewer than the last team occupying the playoff spots.

      Historically, this match up is looking fairly even. Sheffield Wednesday have won three of the last six meetings, with Rotherham taking victory one in normal time and once on penalties and one game ending a draw.

      Four of Rotherham’s last five home games have ended with three or more goals, so odds of 11/10 for Over 2.5 Match Goals look like good value. 13/10 for a Sheffield Wednesday win is also looking very attractive, and if you combine the two you get an incredible 3/1.

      I think the best value is to be found in the Over 2.5 Goals bet though, so that’s the main backing for me along with a 2-1 win for Sheffield United at 17/2.
