Derby County were well fancied for a play-off spot before the Championship season got underway.
Frank Lampard’s side have sit fourth going into the weekend and have a great chance to keep their points tally moving in the right direction as they head north.
The Rams are 21/20 (2.05) with 888Sport to win their fourth consecutive league game at the New York Stadium. Rotherham are available at 45/17 (3.65) while the same firm are 12/5 (3.40) on the match ending all square.
Rotherham have won two of their three home matches this term, both by a 1-0 score line. However, those victories have come against Ipswich and Millwall – both of whom now sit below them in the table – and this clash brings about a significant step up in opposition quality.
Overall, things haven’t gone well for Paul Warne’s side of late. They’ve lost four of their last five matches in all competitions, conceding nine times in those games and there is little to suggest that they’ll be able to stop one of the most potent teams in the second tier.
While Derby have lost two of their six Championship games this season, they’ve not failed to find the net in six attempts – even in defeat – and that is the key to Saturday’s best bet.
The Rams have yet to show enough defensive quality to make the 21/20 (2.05) about them winning the game attractive enough. However, the same price is available on Derby scoring at least two goals with 888Sport and that looks solid enough given the match situation and the form book.
This bet doesn’t require the visitors to take anything from the game, but their impressive scoring streak looks to have a good chance of continuing. The 21/20 (2.05) on the away side scoring over 1.5 goals looks to offer punters plenty of value ahead of the weekend’s action getting underway.
Derby to score over 1.5 goals at 21/20 (2.05) for a 1pt stake with 888Sport
