Middlesbrough will be aiming to return to winning ways when they entertain Blackburn Rovers at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday. Tony Pulis’ side have dropped valuable points in their last two matches and this has created a four-point gap to the automatic promotion places. Blackburn picked up their first triumph in four attempts last weekend…
Middlesbrough FC vs Blackburn Rovers FC – Betting Tips for the game
Middlesbrough failed to win for the second game on the bounce after they suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa. The match was only the third occasion they had conceded at the Riverside Stadium in 10 matches.
Blackburn, meanwhile, ended a three-match winless run after they bagged a high-scoring 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Danny Graham was the leading performer for the Rovers with a hat-trick.
The last meeting between the sides was at Ewood Park two years ago where Blackburn picked up a 2-1 triumph. The previous encounter at the Riverside Stadium witnessed a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect Middlesbrough to secure the maximum points.
Middlesbrough FC vs Blackburn Rovers FC – Match odds
Blackburn are given a price of 5.25 for an away win but the result appears probable with their vulnerable defence on the road. The visitors have managed just one point in their previous four away trips with their unsteady backline and this is a game where Middlesbrough should fancy their prospects of returning to winning ways. Pulis’ side may be going through a difficult run but Blackburn are without an away point since October. Our preview fancies a Middlesbrough win.
Middlesbrough vs Blackburn Rovers draw odds: 3.60
Blackburn Rovers win odds: 5.25
Middlesbrough FC vs Blackburn Rovers FC – Correct Score odds
Middlesbrough’s attack has not excelled despite their glowing league position and they have managed just five goals from their last five matches. Blackburn have managed just one point from their last four away trips. The visitors, though, may find the scoresheet after having netted at least once in their previous six outings. Our correct score prediction fancies a Middlesbrough 2-1 win.
Middlesbrough FC vs Blackburn Rovers FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Middlesbrough’s tendency to keep regular clean sheets this term has witnessed low-scoring games at regular intervals. However, we are expecting the forthcoming encounter to be more open-sided with Blackburn possessing an in-form Danny Graham, who netted a hat-trick in their recent league game. Our total goals prediction fancies more than 2.5 goals.
Middlesbrough FC vs Blackburn Rovers FC – First Goalscorer odds
Jordan Hugill has been a regular scorer for Middlesbrough since November and he has netted three times in the previous four matches. During this period, he has opened the scoring on two occasions while being put in charge of the penalty-taking duties which could remain the case this weekend. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Hugill.
