Doncaster have been showing signs of improvement lately and are fancied to come out on top in Saturday’s televised League One Yorkshire derby with Rotherham.

The Millers may only have to make a short journey to Keepmoat Stadium but they have generally been poor travellers of late.

With a big crowd cheering on Rovers, we like 27/20 for a home win in our Doncaster vs Rotherham betting predictions.

A Look At Doncaster Rovers’ Betting Odds

Despite spending just one season down in League Two, Doncaster took a bit of time to readjust to life back at this level and a run of five defeats in six games during September really hurt them.

However, Darren Ferguson’s switch to a 3-4-3 formation appears to have had a positive impact, with Rovers winning three of their last five fixtures in this division.

“It’s a system I’ve played before,” Ferguson told The Star. “I’ve seen improvement in it and that is just through the work we do on the training ground.

“We have played different systems but I like it and the players enjoy it. The players that you would say are in the team, it suits them.”

Doncaster also played some great football in last week’s 6-2 FA Cup triumph at Ebbsfleet and will now have influential midfielder Ben Whiteman back after he was rested for that trip.

Rovers claimed 4-1 and 2-1 wins here last month and 13/5 for a home victory and over 2.5 goals in the game stands out from the Doncaster vs Rotherham odds.

A Look At Rotherham United’s Betting Odds

Opinions were divided over whether Rotherham could recover from last season’s woeful 23-point haul in the Championship, so Paul Warne will probably be pleased with seventh place at this stage.

However, six of their eight League One wins have come on home turf, with five of their seven defeats suffered on the road.

Only five teams have conceded more goals in away matches, with the Millers letting three in at both AFC Wimbledon and Oxford last month.

Tuesday’s Football League Trophy triumph at Bradford may boost morale and Kieffer Moore, the leading marksman in League Two, is always a threat up front.

However, we’re still finishing off our Doncaster vs Rotherham betting tips by taking 333/100 for a home win and both teams to score.
