Middlesbrough are at the Riverside Stadium for Saturday’s early kick-off against Leeds United. Tony Pulis’ side are undefeated in five successive league games and they are in the playoff positions with a three-point advantage over seventh-placed Derby County. Leeds, however, have not enjoyed similar success with a defeat in every other game and they handed…
Middlesbrough FC vs Leeds United AFC – Betting Tips for the game
Middlesbrough bagged their third win from five matches after securing a 3-2 win over West Bromwich Albion on the road. They could, however, not sustain the form in the FA Cup fourth round replay where they suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at Newport County in midweek.
Leeds were on the losing side in the previous weekend after Norwich bagged a comfortable 3-1 triumph against them at Elland Road. They have now suffered defeats in four of their previous six league games.
Elland Road witnessed the past meeting between the teams in August which finished in a goalless draw. The last clash at the Riverside Stadium was 11 months ago which Middlesbrough won 3-0. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a draw.
Middlesbrough FC vs Leeds United AFC – Match odds
Leeds are priced at 2.70 for a return to winning ways while Middlesbrough are backed with the same odds for the victory. Leeds have shown their scoring prowess by finding the scoresheet in every game in 2019 but they have leaked goals which has contributed to the slump in form. Middlesbrough’s tight defence should make things difficult, even if Pulis’ men do not possess the consistency up front to secure the maximum points. Our preview is to go with a draw.
Middlesbrough win odds: 2.70
Leeds United win odds: 2.70
Middlesbrough FC vs Leeds United AFC – Correct Score odds
Middlesbrough have actually fared better than Leeds in the past five matches where they have netted nine times when compared to the visitors’ eight. Despite this, much of their success has come on the road and their home record remains unimpressive with just four goals since December. Still, Leeds may not be able to outscore a Middlesbrough side, which has conceded just eight times at the Riverside this term. Our correct score prediction favours a 1-1 draw.
Middlesbrough FC vs Leeds United AFC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both Middlesbrough and Leeds have failed to keep clean sheets in the past four league matches but this may not necessarily produce a high-scoring contest with the hosts’ solid defensive record. Middlesbrough’s 12 of 14 home games have witnessed a maximum of two goals and the outcome was similar when the sides faced off earlier in the season. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.
Middlesbrough FC vs Leeds United AFC – First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe has been Leeds’ leading scorer this term with 14 goals but he has drawn blank in the past three games. Still, he remains a strong pick to open the scoresheet in the potential absence of Britt Assombalonga in the opposition ranks. Roofe has managed to find the net with nearly every other shot on target. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Roofe.
