The Championship returns to action on Friday night as Rotherham United host Ipswich Town under the lights live on Sky Sports. The Tractor Boys can move to the top of the table with a victory in South Yorkshire so they will want to put on another big performance.

There is a standout market on offer for this second tier clash which we think offers excellent value and so we have selected it as our bet of the day.

Football Bet of the Day – Friday 20 October

  • Over 2.5 Ipswich Town goals in Rotherham United vs Ipswich Town – 13/8

Ipswich have been flying upon their return to the Championship under Kieran McKenna. They sit second in the table with nine wins from their opening 11 games. Having achieved promotion from League One last season, they look like they have the credentials to record a second successive promotion, up to the Premier League.

They play an exciting brand of football which means that they score a lot of goals. The Tractor Boys have netted 25 so far this campaign which is the highest total in the division at present.

McKenna’s men head to Rotherham this weekend in search of a third successive victory, and given the gulf in class between the two sides, it is hard to see Ipswich leaving the New York Stadium with anything less than three points.

Their attacking options are excellent and they keep delivering high-scoring performances, which makes the selection of over 2.5 Ipswich goals seem that much more sensible.

On five occasions already this season, Ipswich have scored at least three goals in their games, including fixtures against much tougher opposition than Rotherham. McKenna is very fortunate to have a lot of players at his disposal that can get on the scoresheet with the likes of Conor Chaplin, Nathan Broadhead and Freddie Ladapo already having scored a few goals each.

Rotherham are going to be in for a tough 90 minutes on Friday night, but it hard to see them being able to stop Ipswich from having another productive match in front of goal.
