Bradford City vs Rotherham United
League One action for me today, the first game is to be played at the Northern Commercials Stadium and will kick off at 15:00 UK time. The game will be played between Bradford City and Rotherham United.
Both sides head into the game in form and it's set to be an exciting game. Bradford were close last season, however, feel just short after they were beat in the final by Millwall. Bradford are a big club and have everything in place to become a Premier League team like before, they are just struggling to get out of this league, as many clubs do.
Bradford currently lie in 4th in the table on 14 points from their first 7 games, so not a bad start to this campaign. Bradford have only lost once this season and that was on the 19th Aug when they lost at home to Blackburn Rovers 1-0. So we know they are beatable at home.
Bradford's last 5 games (league and cup) have seen over 2.5 goals, this is what stands out to me today for that reason. Bradford lost some momentum in their last game as it ended 2-2 away from home vs Oxford United. Bradford were lucky to get a point here as they got an 90th minute leveler.
Rotherham on the other hand head into the game on the back of 3 straight victories. They've not done this for a long time. 2 of the 3 wins have seen over 2.5 goals as Rotherham have looked dangerous on every attack. Their last fixture was a 5-1 win at home to Walsall, this could have been 9-1 to be honest, Rotherham looked sharp on the attack and looked like they could score at every opportunity. Kieffer Moore came off injured after 60 minutes and he has a 50/50 chance of playing today. Frecklington scored a hatrick and Jon Taylor bagged a brace.
Rotherham will have Will Vaulks in the right back position and as changes are being made I expect there to be goals in this game. Both sides will try to avoid defeat and I think both sides will actually go for all 3 points.
I'll be backing over 2.5 goals at a price of 2.02 with 188Bet or 2.00 with a range of other bookies. Good luck all.
