Rotherham vs Shrewsbury predictions and betting tips for the League One Play-Off match on Sunday afternoon with a goals tip and match prediction included.
Rotherham will face Shrewsbury in the League One play-off final with both teams desperate to book their place in the English Championship. The Millers are looking to bounce back at the first time of asking and join fellow relegated sides Blackburn and Wigan in the second tier. Paul Warne has done an excellent job and the reluctant-manager has been praised by the chairman this week. The job isn’t complete yet, but they looked excellent against Scunthorpe and will start as the slight favourites for this clash. They have a decent spine of a team and will battle throughout the 90 minutes. Shrewsbury have exceeded expectations this campaign and could cap off a dream season with a victory at Wembley. Paul Hurst has been outstanding and his team will give 100% every single game. They aren’t a fashionable side but they are incredibly functional and will be hard to break down once again. They were second favourites for the drop in August and only just missed out on automatic promotion. See our Rotherham vs Shrewsbury betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Rotherham were excellent in both legs against Scunthorpe and there is something special about this team. Paul Warne has got his side playing for him and they have quality players such as Will Vaulks and Joe Newell in the side. Shrewsbury are always difficult to write-off but they’ve lost their last four trips to Wembley (including once this season) and the Millers may have the psychological edge here. The first of our Rotherham vs Shrewsbury betting tips is Rotherham to Win which is priced at 7/5 with William Hill.
This isn’t likely to be a high-scoring affair with both sides keeping clean sheets during their second leg successes. Shrewsbury’s tight defence kept consecutive shutouts against Charlton in the semi-finals and will be difficult to break down. Rotherham have been excellent at the back this season with Richard Wood marshalling the back-line superbly. Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 8/11 with Betfair and is the second of our Rotherham vs Shrewsbury predictions.
The excellent Joe Newell has enjoyed a fruitful season for the Millers and he netted during the semi-final first leg. He gets into key positions and could be the difference maker. Joe Newell in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 5/2 with Ladbrokes and is the last of our Rotherham vs Shrewsbury betting tips.
Rotherham start as narrow favourites for this clash and can be backed at 13/10. The Millers will be popular with punters and are likely to be included in many weekend accumulators. Shrewsbury can be backed at 9/4 whilst it’s the same price for a draw.
It’s 9/10 for Both Teams to Score? Yes whilst it’s 8/11 for Under 2.5 Goals which is always popular in these tense and tight affairs.
Michael Smith creates more than he scores and is hugely influential. He is 5/1 joint favourite in the first goalscorer market with David Ball.
All of these odds are from Betfair
Jamie Proctor remains a long-term absentee but there are very few injury worries for Paul Warne.
Shrewsbury remain with Abu Ogogo who continues his recovery from injury. Paul Hurst must decide whether to start Carlton Morris or Stefan Payne.
