Rotherham vs Leeds United betting tips and predictions for tonight’s Championship match with expert football betting tips.

The New York Stadium plays host to a Yorkshire derby on Friday night as Leeds make the short trip South to face Steve Evans’ men. You could be argue that Rotherham have had a disappointing start to the season, but 4 points in their last two games, including a very creditable draw against leaders Norwich gave them renewed optimism going into the International Break.

Leeds meanwhile have had a topsy-turvy campaign, Dave Hockaday was dispatched after just one win, Neil Redfearn turned it around but wasn’t given the role and Darko Milanic was brought in. He is still looking for his first win since moving to West Yorkshire.


I feel as though I have watched Leeds quite a few times this season, but their last two appearances on Sky have both ended 1-1. Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham have both been beatable opponents and I would throw Rotherham in a similar category of club. The Millers have been fairly solid defensively, but haven’t been able to find the scoring touch so far. Lucciano Becchio was brought in to solve that problem, but has picked up a problem and will be unavailable to face his former club.

I’m finding it difficult to separate these two clubs for my Rotherham v Leeds prediction and with Rotherham having already drawn 1-1 three times this season, it could be another draw in this Yorkshire derby. Neither side will want to lose this game. Milanic will be desperate to get his first 3 points of the season, but Steve Evans doesn’t send out a side which will give up easily. Whilst 1-1 would be my advice for correct score line, it makes as much sense to back the draw.

The draw is best odds 5/2 with Bet365 who will double your first deposit when you open a new account via this link.

As I have spoken so highly about the 1-1 draw, it makes sense to tip both teams to score tonight. Leeds still need to sort out their best forward line with Antenucci, Billy Sharp and Soulymane Doukara all contesting for a starting berth. They also have the highly rated Adryan who is rumoured to get a game, he is a playmaker who could find a way to open up the Rotherham defence. Rotherham have only failed to scored twice in the last 8 games and despite the missing Argentinian, they should be able find the net against a Leeds side who have been less than solid defensively.

Both teams to score is best odds 19/20 with Coral and when you bet £5 with a new account you will get a free £20 bet via this link.

Jordan Bowery must have shown enough at Chesterfield for Aston Villa to snap him up, but now back at Rotherham, he needs to find his shooting boots. He scored in the 3-2 loss to Bolton earlier in the season, but he is a decent price to score anytime during the 90 minutes. He is still only 23 and whilst he will be hoping to add to his 2 goals this season, this may be his chance. Becchio is set to be out for a couple of months and he could be the man to lead the line and score the goals, back him to score for our final football betting tip.

Bowery to Score anytime is best odds 13/5 at Paddy Power who will give you a bet £5 get £20 sign-up bonus via this link.
