Bristol City 29/20 to beat Rotherham in Saturday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City win

Odds: 29/20 @ 888sport

Looking to build off of theie eye-catching victory in midweek, Bristol City will make the trip to a struggling Rotherham on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Rotherham might have managed to draw an end to November by snatching a point off of title-chasers Bournemouth, that 2-2 draw in South Yorkshire appears to have just been an ever so minor bounce. Last seen earlier in the week when putting in another sluggish display, the Millers were hit with a 2-0 defeat against Watford and Paul Warne’s side have now managed to pick up just a single point from their last six Championship contests on the bounce. Showing a string of issues at the back and shipping 13 strikes on their winless run, Rotherham open this weekend’s fixtures now holding just a one-point buffer over slipping into the drop zone. Also, last seen on home soil getting hit with a 2-0 loss against Brentford, Saturday’s hosts should face another stern test.

As for the visitors, managing to make a return to winning ways with an eye-catching 1-0 win against a high-flying Blackburn, it is no secret that Bristol City have a promotion charge on their agenda. Finding a route back into the play-off positions, the Robins have lost just a pair of their last eight Championship contests, a run that stems back to October 31st. Along with picking up a 1-0 win the last time they faced off against Rotherham, fans around Ashton Gate should also be boosted by their side’s largely impressive form while on the road. Including landing a 2-1 win away at QPR in their last away fixture, Head Coach Dean Holden has seen his men pick up nine points from their last four contests on the road. Smelling a real chance to claim back-to-back wins this weekend, we’re backing an away victory.
