Rotherham to take the win

Crewe Alexandra have won just five of their 27 league games this season, losing 15 of them; they’ve won just one of their last five games, with a draw and three losses in that five game stretch. Crewe will be going up against Rotherham, one of the best teams in the league. Rotherham have won four of their last six games; they’ve also been one of the best road teams in the league, winning six of 12 games away from home. It’s also worth mentioning that Rotherham have lost just once in their last 12 meetings with Crewe; for this reason, we’re making the prediction that Rotherham will take all three points from this game.

Both sides to score

Rotherham have been consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net; they’ve scored in 10 of their last 12 games across all competitions. Conversely, Rotherham have conceded their fair share of goals; they’ve allowed at least one goal in five of their last six games. Both teams have scored in four of Rotherham’s last six games. Similarly, Crewe have kept just one clean sheet in their last six games whilst scoring in four of them; both teams have scored in four of their last six games. It’s also worth noting that both teams have scored in all of the last eight encounters between these sides; and on that note, we believe that both teams will find the back of the net.

Backing goals to go in

We’ve already established that both teams tend to score whenever these sides meet; we would also like to point out that their encounters have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Four of their last five meetings have gone above the 2.5 goal margin; it’s even more interesting considering three of those five clashes went over 5.5. Considering both teams have scored and conceded goals consistently, this should be a high-scoring affair.
