Rotherham United - Watford betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:00 on 16/03/2021 played @ AESSEAL New York Stadium refereed by Jeremy Simpson

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Rotherham United winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Watford, which is made quite clear with the 4.50 odds offered for a home win result.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Watford have a better chance of winning this clash than their opponents. They can’t afford to relax just yet though – the hosts may prove a tough nut to crack after all.

The Millers’s previous round ended with a home draw against Coventry City . The : outcome wasn’t ideal, especially on home turf, but most betting sites considered their opponents stronger heading into this matchup so they can be happy with the result.

The Hornets are here on the back of a surprise upturn in the previous round. They faced Cardiff City, who were projected to win at odds of 3.50. The first round was inconclusive, but Watford pulled ahead later on and recorded a narrow 1:2 away win.

Unspurred by the home-field advantage, Rotherham ended both of their latest home games with less than 2 goals between them and the opposition. It’s safe to assume we won’t see a lot of action this time around either.

Watford are on an uninterrupted streak of 7 home games in which they’ve scored at least once. It may seem like this stat doesn’t affect this match, being a visiting game and all, but consistency in performance is very important for betting.

As far as the head-to-head stats are concerned, The Hornets already confirmed their status as favourites. They defeated the away team previously in the season, leaving little doubt as to which squad is in better form.

Fortunately, none of the teams’ players has been injured or suspended recently. With their full lineups at their disposal, we’re in for an exciting match.

Our advice is to go for an Under 2.5 Goals market, though it was likely not your first instinct. While the probability is rather low compared to what you’re used to from Under 2.5 bets, it compares favourably to the 1.84 odds offered by Betway.

Betting tip (stake: 6/10): Under 2,5 1.84 at Betway
