Paul Warne’s Rotherham United and Veljko Paunovic’s Reading meet at the New York Stadium this Saturday in the EFL Championship.

Both sides will be hoping to hit back after midweek defeats, but Reading are the favourites. Check out the latest and greatest betting odds and tips.

Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers pick up a massive three points?

Rotherham United find themselves in the Championship’s bottom three with just 16 games left to play. Although they have shown plenty of fighting spirit of late, it has been tough season back in the second tier for last term’s EFL League One runners-up.

Rotherham have tasted victory just eight times in this season’s Championship, suffering 17 defeats along the way. Only bottom club Wycombe Wanderers have lost more up until now.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0825 GMT, Friday 26 February)

United recently won three of four in the Championship, but they head into this weekend’s game having lost four on the spin. Since a 2-1 victory at Preston North End on 6th February, Rotherham have been beaten by Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Nottingham Forest. They will be desperate to avoid a fifth straight reverse this Saturday.

Reading Preview – Royals to leave Yorkshire with maximum points?

Reading are fighting for promotion, spending practically all season in the top six. However, Veljko Paunovic’s boys have been in poor form of late, losing four of their past five. In midweek, the Royals fell to a 1-0 defeat to lowly Wycombe at Adams Park.

Reading’s recent win at Bristol City is their only success in six Championship games. The chasing pack are starting to close the gap, but the Berkshire club will remain optimistic about their play-off chances.

Reading will be desperate to get back on track with victory on the road this weekend. Generally, they have been good on their travels this season, and they are the bookies’ favourites in this one.


Rotherham United vs Reading Betting Advice

Reading cruised to victory when the pair met at the Madejski Stadium back in October. Yakou Meite was the hero for the Royals, netting twice before Lucas Joao’s late penalty.

Reading are unbeaten in seven against the Millers, winning four and drawing three. Rotherham’s last victory in this fixture came in April 2015.


Key Facts – Rotherham United vs Reading Betting Tip

  • Rotherham have won just one of the last nine meetings
  • The Millers have lost four in a row
  • The Royals have lost four of their previous five in the Championship


After the midweek disappointment in Buckinghamshire, Paunovic will be looking for a response from his players at the New York Stadium on Saturday. Reading were far too strong for Rotherham at the Madejski, and we fancy them to win to nil again (10/3).

Lucas Joao has been in stunning form this season, scoring 20 goals in all competitions. However, the Royals have drawn two blanks in previous last two, with Joao netting just once in his last four outings. Nevertheless, we fancy the Portuguese to get back to scoring ways this weekend. Have a punt on Joao to net the first goal at 9/2.
