Middlesbrough FC vs Sunderland AFC – Betting Tips for the game
Middlesbrough were able to get a 3-1 win over Hull City to make it back-to-back wins in the league. It has been of a huge assistance to Garry Monk’s team, as they make their way up the table.
Sunderland remain stuck in the bottom three for the last six weeks and they continue to do so after only getting a 3-3 draw at the Stadium of Light against Bolton. This was the fourth draw in the last five matches for the club, who decided to sack manager Simon Grayson.
The recent game between the two clubs saw Sunderland travel to the Riverside and suffer a 1-0 defeat. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Middlesbrough.
Prediction and betting tip: Middlesbrough win at 7/10 with Sky Bet
Middlesbrough FC vs Sunderland AFC – Match odds
Sunderland are given a price of 11/2 to win the game. We would not go with this option. Sunderland have been without a win in the last 13 matches, while they have been able to get only one away victory so far this season. Middlesbrough come on the back of consecutive victories, but the club has had a mediocre home record this season. They have been able to get only three wins in the seven matches at the Riverside stadium, but recent form is likely to favour the home team. Our preview would back a win for Middlesbrough, which is at 7/10 with Sky Bet.
