News. Fancy a flutter against Rotherham?

20 Jan 17

Back to Championship business on Saturday with the visit of bottom club Rotherham. Let’s see where the smart money is going according to official betting partner Coral...


The Home Win looks nailed on but you’ll only get 1/4 so might want to swerve that in favour of Over 2.5 Goals. Fifteen of Rotherham’s 18 defeats this season have gone ‘over’, so the 8/15 on offer looks solid.

Smart Money…

You can boost your return by doubling up the Newcastle Win & Over 2.5 Goals, but you’re still only looking at 3/4.

The Newcastle/ Newcastle option in the Half-time/ Full-time market has paid out in seven of the last ten wins and nudges the price up to 20/23.

And you’ll get a slightly better than double-your-money 21/20 for a Win to Nil, which has paid out in ten of Toon’s 18 wins including the reverse fixture at Rotherham.

But for big returns we need to look at the Correct Score and Goalscorer markets…

Long Shots…

The 2-0 scoreline has been by far the most common, paying out seven times in all competitions. You’ll get 11/2 for another here. A repeat of the 1-0 from when the teams’ met in October is on offer at 7/1.

Daryl Murphy scored his first league goal for the club at the weekend, coming for the injured Gayle. In the absence of Mitrovic (also injured) Murphy looks set to lead the line so could be the pick of the Goalscorers. You’ll get 16/5 to Score First and 10/11 Anytime.

But the outstanding bet of the match is for newcomers to Coral. If you still haven’t got an account you can take advantage of an exclusive Welcome Offer of 33/1 for the Newcastle Win. Simply sign-up with a £5 deposit and you can turn £1 into £33 from a 1/4 bet!
