Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In a Championship showdown that could prove to be another enjoyable affair, Middlesbrough will make the trip to Rotherham on Monday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Rotherham might find still find themselves sat in pole position to extend on their Championship status this season, Matt Taylor’s men are limping their way over the finish line. Last seen getting hit with what could be a costly 2-1 loss at home against Cardiff, the Millers open Monday’s showdown holding just a two-point buffer over the drop zone and knowing that they face a crucial battle here. However, although the Yorkshire-based outfit might have enjoyed a much-needed flurry when opening March, the Reds have come crashing back down to earth. Although Taylor’s side might have snatched a thrilling 2-2 draw at home against runaway leaders Burnley on April 18th, Rotherham have recorded just a single victory from their previous nine appearances. However, it should be highlighted, the Millers have seen six of their last seven Championship battles at the New York Stadium finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, already clinching their play-off ticket with plenty of time to spare, Middlesbrough have continued to impress everyone across the Championship this season. Only enjoying what has become a remarkable rise since appointing Michael Carrick, fans around the Riverside find the mood in their camp at a real high. However, with their sole attention now focused on booking what would be a famous Premier League return in 2023, the ex-Manchester United coach has seen his side show some recent inconsistencies. Potential taking their eye off the ball since officially punching their play-off ticket, Boro were last seen getting hit with a lively 2-1 defeat away at Luton. Likewise, playing out a 2-2 draw away at Bristol City on April 10th, Monday’s guests have won just a pair of their last six Championship appearances. Likewise, with Carrcik’s side seeing each of those six outings finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
