Brentford 1/1 to beat Rotherham in Saturday’s Championship showdown
Market: Brentford win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to rebuild their season after a bright run of form entering 2019, Brentford will travel to a struggling New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while a string of draws at the start of the season may see Rotherham sit outside of the relegation zone, the Reds have hit a worrying run of form entering 2019. In their 27 games this season, they have won five, drawn 10 and lost 12, scoring 25 and conceding 42 in return. Entering the New Year, the Millers hold the second worst defensive record in the Championship. With a points tally of 25, they now hold a two-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of form, the hosts have lost five of their last six matches across all competitions.
As for the visitors, while Brentford may have struggled after the departure of Dean Smith, the Bees have started to show some real signs of improvement. In their 27 games this season, they have recorded seven wins, 10 draws and 10 defeats, scoring 39 and conceding 37 in return. While the visitors might sit seven points adrift of the top half of the table, their form has impressed many around Griffin Park. Brentford have now won their last two matches on the bounce and are unbeaten in their last six outings across all competitions.
