Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Little first half action. Remarkably, Rotherham have not scored a first-half goal since August, whilst Bolton have failed to score in their last two games making under 0.5 goals in the first half at 7/4 with Paddy Power one of the best football predictions for this low-scoring affair.

2 We fancy:

Bolton to win to nil is 15/4 with MansionBet. Bolton are edging this season with more wins, fewer defeats and more goals scored, whilst Rotherham with just nine goals all season look there for the taking.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Rotherham to win 4-0 is 50/1 with Betfair. That may seem an almighty long shot, but it is exactly what happened the last time Bolton visited the Millers on Boxing Day 2015.

One to Watch: Josh Magennis

The Bolton Wanderers hitman is the most prolific striker on the pitch in this game with four goals this season and the 28-year-old will be eager to continue showing manager Phil Parkinson’s faith in him after signing from Charlton in the summer.

Goals have been a problem for Bolton this season but Magennis is seen as the man to fire Bolton further up the table.

Magennis is the reason why the Trotters to win the game and prevent Rotherham from scoring at 5/1 with BetBright is one of the best football betting tips for this game

Manager Paul Warne sees his side return to action with no injury concerns, but he will have one eye on centre-back Richard Wood who is one yellow card away from a suspension.

Rotherham United vs Bolton Wanderers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Rotherham welcome Bolton to the New York Stadium in the Championship this weekend

Two sides who could both do with a win to ease away from the bottom three meet in Yorkshire on Saturday for a game that may see a lack of goals. Neither side is overly prolific this season with just 19 goals between them, but points are all that matter in a long and arduous season. Survival is the first priority for these two in our Championship preview as Yorkshire becomes the battleground for 90 minutes.

Rotherham are 11/10 and that is actually a better price than many may think. The Millers’ home form is what has kept them afloat so far this season, as all 11 points have been collected at the New York Stadium making this today’s football prediction to consider.

Bolton are 5/2 to win and at that price it is one of the best football betting tips for this game. The Trotters have won two of their six away games including an impressive victory at West Brom earlier in the season.

The draw is 23/10 and may look a good price but there is little evidence to suggest that is one of the better football score predictions in this encounter. There hasn’t been a draw between the two in their last six matches, a stretch that goes all the way back to 1991.

Under 2.5 goals is 4/5. Historically there has been plenty of goals when these two meet, but that is unlikely to repeat in a season in which both sides are struggling in front of goal. The pair has shared just 19 goals out of a total 24 games this season making a lack of goals one of the best bets in our Championship predictions.

Double chance of draw or Bolton is 3/4. Although the draw is not one of our football predictions, the fact this bet is such good value adds an element of insurance to the likely away win should Rotherham give the Trotters a run for their money.

Predicted Score: Rotherham United 0 - 1 Bolton Wanderers
