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.
