Nottingham Forest vs Rotherham United: Prediction

We can definitely conclude from the head-to-head trend that Forest are very likely to avoid a defeat here. Rotherham’s away record in the league this season provides a strong case for our prediction. They managed to earn just 1 point from their 14 away games this season. This ultimately brings us to bank on Nottingham Forest to nothing less than a win here.

Rotherham have seen over 2.5 goals in 13 of their 14 away matches this season. Also, we are expecting to witness a very open contest and therefore an over 2.5 goals is very much a possibility. So, brave punters can opt for the combination of goals and full-time result to ensure maximum profitability.

Over 2.5 goals and Nottingham to win at 7/4 (2.75).
