Rotherham expected to beat the drop according to the bookmakers

Rotherham's stunning run of form over the last month means they are no longer among the favourites for relegation for the first time this season.

Neil Warnock's resurrection of the Millers, which has included coupon-busting wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough and Ipswich in a run of 13 points from 15, has seen them climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since the beginning of February.

With Bolton and Charlton staring relegation in the face, it looks like being five-team race to avoid the final relegation spot, with the Millers now above MK Dons and Fulham in the table.

And the odds are reflected accordingly as Rotherham are now 2.75/1 to lose their Championship status with BetFair, with a host of other bookmakers offering odds of 2/1.

MK Dons have become the favourites to join Bolton and Charlton in the bottom three, with widespread odds of 8/11 on their Championship stay ending after one year.

Unsurprisingly Bolton, sitting 12 points adrift of safety, are priced at 1/500 to go down, while the Addicks, six points better off, are as short as 1/100 with some bookies.

Despite being below Rotherham in the table and without a win in six games, Fulham are 4/1 to go down while at 25/1the bookmakers do not expect Bristol City to be in trouble

One side who might be an outside bet to drop out of the division are Brentford. Although priced at 33/1 to go down, they are in free fall.

Seven defeats from eight games - including against Rotherham - has seen Dean Smith's men drop from 10th position in the table and eyeing the play-offs to within just six points of the drop zone.

If you fancy betting the other way and backing the Millers to stay up, well there is not too much value. They are priced at 4/11 to beat the drop.

Fulham are 1/6 to stay up, Bristol City are 1/100 while MK Dons are 11/10.

Despite their poor run of form the bookmakers do not thing Brentford will fall further as they are 1/250.

The Millers have been favourites for the drop all year, starting in pre-season and again in January, despite being out of the drop zone at the time.
