Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A tight game. Despite sitting top of the table, only nine teams have scored fewer goals than Middlesbrough, with four of those in the bottom five. One of those is Rotherham, and an under 2.5 goals bet here looks one of the best football betting tips at 19/20 with 888sport.

One to Watch: Britt Assombalonga

With five goals to his name so far this season, Britt Assombalonga is Middlesbrough’s top scorer. The Congolese forward matched his best ever Championship goal tally last season with 15 strikes, and he’s well on his way to emulating that this time round. 

Assombalonga’s goal are likely to be pivotal to Boro’s chances of promotion, especially if the Championship stays as close as it is right now. The 25-year-old is the 57/17 favourite with 10bet to open the scoring on Tuesday.

The hosts have no injuries or suspensions coming into this Championship preview. That means Boro boss Tony Pulis could name the same starting line-up which won at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night.

Middlesbrough vs Rotherham United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Martin Braithwaite is one of the players to keep an eye on as Middlesbrough take on Rotherham

Table-topping Middlesbrough welcome Rotherham United to the Riverside on Tuesday night in this week’s Championship predictions. The Millers won the last meeting between the sides, but Boro won three in a row before that and are the strong favourites here. 

Boro are 2/5 for the victory in your football betting tips for this game. The Teesiders recovered from a disappointing home defeat to Nottingham Forest just before the international break to beat Wednesday 2-1 over the weekend, and their superior goal difference sees them top of the pile. 

Rotherham are 17/2, and they start this game just two points above the relegation zone. The Millers have failed to win any of their last six matches, and they’ve lost seven of their 13 Championship fixtures so far this term. We can expect that to become eight on Tuesday. 

The draw is 19/5 and the away team would be delighted with that. With the league table so bunched up – 18th-placed Bolton are only nine points from top – Middlesbrough know how important it is they keep winning, and they should have more than enough here. 

Martin Braithwaite is 9/2 for the first goal in this midweek fixture, as he goes in search of his fourth goal of the campaign. Muhamed Besic opened the scoring for Boro on Friday and he’s out at 18/1 to do so again in this one, while Ryan Manning is 25/1 to break the deadlock for the visitors. 

Predicted Score: Middlesbrough 2 - 0 Rotherham United
