Bookmakers expect Rotherham to suffer relegation this season

Rotherham are in another battle to avoid the drop in the Sky Bet Championship as the season heads towards its final quarter.

Neil Redfearn’s men are in a six-way battle to keep their second-tier status along with Bolton, Bristol City, Charlton, MK Dons and Fulham.

The Millers were the favourites for relegation before a ball was kicked this season, but with 17 games to play what are the bookies saying now?

Despite currently being out of the bottom three, albeit on goal difference, the Millers are third favourites to suffer relegation, with 11/8 their shortest odds. The longest odds on them going down are 19/20.

Unsurprisingly Bolton are now overwhelming favourites for the drop, with odds as short as 1/20 on them playing in League One next season.

Charlton are second favourites with odds ranging from 1/4 to 1/7.

Despite winning just one game since the end of October and being only three points above the bottom three, the bookies don’t think Fulham are in any danger, with lengthy odds of 8/1 on them going down.

Bristol City are currently occupying the final relegation spot, but are tipped to pull away and are priced as long as 2.75/1.

MK Dons’ odds range from 1.75/1 to 2/1 to beat the drop in their first season in the second tier.

The bookies are all sticking together in their assertion that Bolton, Charlton and Rotherham will go down and that is highlighted by the lengthy odds of the other three sides on finishing bottom.

Fulham are 40/1 to prop up the rest come May, Bristol City 18/1 and MK Dons 14/1.

Current bottom club Bolton are evens, with Charlton priced at 2/1 and Rotherham 5/1.

However, those feeling optimistic of the Millers sealing a third successive year in the division can get odds of 5/4 on them staying up.

Bolton are priced at 9/2 to pull off the great escape, with Charlton at 11/4.

The Dons, City and Fulham are all priced at less than evens to stay in the division.
