Rotherham United host West Bromwich Albion in the Championship on Tuesday evening (19:45) with the away side looking to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat to Sunderland at the weekend.

West Brom have a two-point cushion in fifth as they sit inside the play-off places and as they travel to bottom-of-the-table Rotherham, they will be expected to win this encounter and strengthen their position inside the top six.

Here are a couple of the best markets available in this second-tier clash.

Rotherham vs West Brom Betting Tips

  • Grady Diangana to score anytime - 9/4
  • West Brom to score in both halves - 7/4

Match Odds

Rotherham are valued at 4/1 to pick up a big three points on Tuesday. A draw can be backed at 5/2, while the Baggies are priced at 8/13 to win this one.

Both teams to score in this one is available at 10/11. Over 2.5 goals can be found at the same odds.

Team News

Rotherham are going to be without defender Daniel Ayala in midweek due to suspension. Cameron Humphreys remains sidelined through injury.

Josh Maja, Matt Phillips and Jed Wallace are all expected to be absent for West Brom.

Grady Diangana to score anytime @ 9/4

It was back in 2019-20 when Grady Diangana first arrived at West Brom on a loan move from West Ham United, and he was unplayable that year in the Championship. The winger scored eight goals as helped the Baggies gain promotion to the Premier League. He has been with the club permanently since the following season but has struggled to recapture that season's form.

However, Diangana is enjoying a resurgence for the West Midlands club with his performances of late. The wide man has scored three goals in his last Championship appearances, with two assists coming in that time. He has featured 15 times for Carlos Corberan's side this season and is one goal away from matching last season's tally in almost half the amount of games (31 last year).

There is a confidence in his play once again and if he gets unleashed upon a frail Rotherham defence, he will be fancying himself to add to his tally and aid the Baggies in their promotion push.

West Brom to score in both halves @ 7/4

The Baggies find themselves in a strong position at this stage of the season in their quest for promotion as they sit fifth in the table. After suffering back-to-back defeats against Leicester City and Sunderland they will see Rotherham as a great opportunity to get back to winning ways, as well as a must-win game for a side wishing to finish inside the top six.

Despite injuries to some key players, Albion have a strong squad and they should have more than enough to score a few goals against the Millers. That's what we're expecting on Tuesday evening and so we are tipping the Baggies to find the back of the net in both halves.

They have scored in both halves of a match on six occasions this season in the Championship and against the team planted at the bottom of the table, this should see them make that seven games this term.
