Rotherham will be looking for some more valuable home points in this one. After thumping Sheffield Wednesday in their last home fixture, the Millers are looking for more.

That’s because they are only three points away from the Championship drop zone.

Luton have managed just one win in their last five league games, but their bright start to the season is still keeping them afloat in mid-table.

Rotherham Preview – Can the Millers bank their second home win?

In their last home game in the Championship, Rotherham secured a good 3-0 win over bottom side Sheffield Wednesday.

That was the first home success of the campaign for the Millers, moving them on to a W1 D1 L2 record on home turf.

That is the only game in their last three in which Rotherham have scored.

The two wins that the Millers have taken this season have been against the current bottom two in the league.

The four losses that they have suffered have all been against teams currently sitting in the top eight.

So there is a bit of a trend there with them. Luton are sitting in the middle of the table, so a draw is not an unrealistic prospect.

On the weekend the Millers were out on the road and suffered a 1-0 loss at Stoke.

For their return to the New York Stadium they are the 7/5 favourites to win* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

Our betting prediction:
Luton 1 Goal Winning Margin

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November)


Rotherham have drawn two of their last three home games against Luton in all competitions.

This is the first league meeting between the two since a League Two clash in 2009.

The last time they were together, Luton won an FA Cup reply in December 2009 after a 2-2 draw in the first attempt.

Each of the last three meetings have gone over 2.5 goals. We are not expecting that outcome, however.

Only a third of Rotherham’s Championship games this season have gone that way. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).


Luton Preview – Can Luton get back to winning ways on the road?

It has been a W2 L2 record from Luton away from home in this Championship campaign.

They snapped a two-match away losing streak in the league by claiming a win at Sheffield Wednesday in their last road mixture.

Following that, it has been a draw against Nottingham Forest and a loss against Brentford in two home games for the Hatters.

So it has been a totally mixed bag from them. But we see something interesting in their returns for football betting.

They have taken an unbeaten W4 D1 record when facing teams currently beneath them in the table.

That’s where Rotherham are.

So that brings the 11/5 odds on a Luton win into a little bit of focus*(odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

The two away successes that Luton have scored this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline.

It probably wouldn’t get beyond a one goal winning margin for the Hatters if they pick up three points on Wednesday.

Luton have yet to be leading at the halftime break away from home (D2 L2).

The two goals that they have managed to produce on their travels have both come in the second half of fixtures.

Both were, incidentally, between the 61st and 75th minute.

As it stands after the weekend’s round of action, there are only four teams who have produced fewer goals than Luton this season.

But then again, Rotherham have not exactly been a prolific side.


Rotherham vs Luton Betting Advice

Luton have proven themselves against teams beaten them in the table this season and that makes them an interesting proposition.

We see the 11/5 odds on them and think that it warrants some respect* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

There is likely going to be very little between the two teams on the night.


Key Facts – Rotherham vs Luton Betting Tip

  • Each of the last three meetings have made it over 2.5 goals
  • Luton have claimed one win in their last five league games

The only positive that the Millers have taken at home this season has come against Sheffield Wednesday, who Luton have beaten away from home.

Luton to win by a 1 goal margin takes our pick for longer odds at 7/2* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).
