Odds are on Millers’ woes to continue

Rotherham celebrate their goal against Blackpool
Rotherham celebrate their goal against Blackpool

Pegged back by Blackpool last time out, Rotherham are now winless in seven and bookmakers don’t fancy the Millers to arrest that slump at Cardiff, where they’ll kick-off as Ladbrokes’s 4/1 underdogs.

The South Wales outfit are odds-on at 10/11 with William Hill to secure a maximum haul while Stan James price Steve Evans’s side at 13/5 to earn a respectable point and United are 13/2 (BetVictor) to card a second consecutive 1-1.

Fans feeling that Rotherham can take something from the fixture can back them at even money via bet365 to avoid defeat but for those willing to be a touch bolder, huge odds are available. BetVictor for example, quote 15/1 about a 2-1 away success and Winner.com mark 5/1 against United nicking it by a solitary goal.

It’s 9/10 (betway) meanwhile for both teams to get on the scoresheet.

Plying their trade two divisions above their opponents, Barnsley are just 2/5 (Stan James) to get the better of Conference Chester as the pair go head-to-head in the FA Cup second round. The visitors are 7/1 via bet365 to cause an upset at Oakwell, where Stan James chalk the clash up at 9/2 to prove inconclusive and BetVictor offer 18/1 about a 2-2 thriller.

The Tykes however, should enjoy the upper hand and in a contest that’s 4/9 (Skybet) to produce three or more goals bet365 quote a 3-1 home win at 10/1.

Oldham’s strength on their own patch accounts for the fact that Doncaster Rovers will start the pair’s cup clash at Boundary Park as bet365’s 10/3 outsiders. The hosts are Stan James’s 5/6 favourites while Skybet post odds of 5/2 against a stalemate, a price with the potential to be popular in light of Doncaster’s solid record on their travels.

Three of Oldham’s last four have ended all-square, lending appeal to Paddy Power’s 7/2 about a score draw and being underdogs, Paul Dickov’s troops benefit from a goal start at even money in Ladbrokes’s handicaps.
