Stoke City vs Rotherham Predictions and Free Betting Tips from expert tipsters when they go head-to-head in the English Championship on Saturday, 05 August 2023.
Stoke City are set to host Rotherham at Bet365 Stadium to kick off their Championship season. Stoke City has had a subpar preseason thus far. They will, however, want to start the season on a high note after finishing 16th last season.
Their opponents, Rotherham, have begun the season with a number of fine preseason performances in an attempt to improve on their 19th-place position from last season.
The last time these two clubs met was in December 2022. The match ended in a 2-2 draw that day.
In the last ten meetings between the two teams. Stoke City has won twice, there have been five draws, and Rotherham has won three times.
We are counting on Rotherham to pull off a win here. They have started the season in great form heading into this one. Their last three matches have all resulted in wins.
Stoke City, on the other hand, has struggled in recent weeks. In their last four matches, they have won only once. Two of those matches ended in defeats as well.
We don’t expect a flurry of goals in this match. Stoke has only scored two goals in their last four matches. Also, four of Rotherham’s past six matches have ended with under 2.5 goals.
In addition, the last two h2h meetings between these two at this ground have had under 2.5 goals. By the looks of things, a low-scoring affair is expected this time out.
The bookies have Stoke City as the favourite, but backing them at 1.65 odds isn’t a good bet considering Rotherham’s excellent preseason form heading into the match. Their past three matches have all ended in victories. Furthermore, Stoke City has had a mediocre form going into the match.
A +1.0 Asian handicap on Rotherham at 1.80 odds will be our main betting pick here considering all the observations.
For the second tip, under 2.5 goals at 1.80 odds seems very promising. Considering both teams recent goal involvement in their matches and their past results.
