Saturday, at 15:00, Shrewsbury and Rotherham meet in the 34th round of the third English league, in a duel with implications in the promotion area. The game can flow in any direction, the near odds being explicable from this point of view.
Shrewsbury is the leading League One leader with 19 wins and 7 draws in 31 rounds (42-24 Goals). The team reacted well after the Championship relegation, but one point is breaking the top 4, so the fight is fierce and Wigan, Blackburn, Rotherham and Scunthorpe are also involved. Rotherham is on the 4th place (55-38 golaveraj) and has an irresistible attack this year.
Winning rows for both bands.
We are staying here because both teams have an offensive style and rarely are happy with the draws. The shape of the two is promising, as Shrewsbury has 4 wins in the last 5 official matches, but has received 4 goals in four matches. Rotherham has 5 wins in a row and comes after a 3-1 electrizant with Oxford United, being very efficient on the ground: 5 consecutive successes, 4 of them without a goal. Otherwise Rotherham will be on the move, but guests will have to take risks if they want to get the 3 points.
The statistics of the direct matches favor our forecast because the “Both Mark” bet has been winner in 4 of the last 5 matches, and the “over 2.5 goals” selection was “green” every time! The last direct results were 2-1, 3-1 and 2-1 for Shrewsbury, 3-0 for Rotheram (away) and a 2-2 draw, recorded in 2013. Rotherham is unbeaten by 5 consecutive shifts and will sell expensive skin this weekend.
PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.66
