Championship: Middlesbrough v Huddersfield Betting Tips & Preview

Boro ones to swerve at odds on

There’s a lunchtime Easter Monday kick-off in the Championship as Middlesbrough host Huddersfield with both teams bang in the playoff picture with just a handful of matches to go.

Boro head into this clash in stuttering form, though – failing to win their last two matches at the Riverside and failing to score in four of their previous six league games.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield arrive here having avoided defeat in ten of their last 11 away league games, so it’s a surprise that the bookmakers have Middlesbrough as odds on favourites.

There’s certainly an argument to back Huddersfield to take all three points in this clash at 7/2, but a safer bet is for them to avoid defeat – you can back the Terriers (Double Chance) at 24/23 with SBK.

Scoring chances likely to be at a premium

It’s been seven games since both teams scored in a Middlesbrough game, so it’s not likely to be a goal glut on Monday, especially in a match that could turn into a tactical battle.

A 0-0 draw could be on the cards, not one for the purists, but it’s always worth remembering that if you do fancy a goalless encounter to always back no goalscorer rather than a 0-0 correct score.

If the match was to end 1-0 to either side courtesy of an own-goal, then your no goalscorer bet would still be a winner, and that’s what we’re siding with this afternoon – no goalscorer at 9/1.
