Preston vs Rotherham Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Preston vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).

Preston has lost only one of their recent five fixtures in the campaign. The host has been winless for the past two matches, following a 1-0 loss on the road against Sheffield Wednesday last time out. They have registered only 3 draws in their 27 appearances and hence, sharing points will not be their idea.

Rotherham is seeing better days at the relegation zone as they managed three wins in the recent five clashes in their championship schedule. The visitor is ten points behind the home team on the table as it stands. They will visit on the back of a 3-0 win at home against Derby in the previous encounter.

Preston vs Rotherham Prediction

For the past six meetings since 2016, both teams have scored in all with two draws in it. Both those recent draws came with Preston as the host. With their recent winless games in the campaign, the host will not enjoy the ground advantage in the middle.

Both teams have averaged at least over 1 goal per match in the league so far this season. Based on these stats, there is a good chance that the match will see both teams scoring. The tip for BTTS will probably come in handy from the goals area at 1.90 odds.

Preston has a ten-point lead over the traveling side, and it will give a slight edge for the host. Besides, the away team has a poor form on the road this term in the campaign. The double chance favoring Preston will thus be the best bet for the punters in the clash.

Preston vs Rotherham Betting tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.90 (9/10).
