Burton v Middlesbrough Prediction & Betting Tips – 2nd April 201830th March 2018 / lee
Burton v Middlesbrough Championship, 2nd April 3.00pm
Burton are still feeling a bit frantic down at the wrong end of the table and a season in League One for them is still a big probability. Their home form has pretty much been in the gutter all season and they are running out of time. Boro though have been carrying strong form and are mounting a solid play off challenge.
Burton v Middlesbrough Betting Odds*
Middlesbrough 8/11, Draw 11/4, Burton 7/2* (Betting Odds taken at 00:34 a.m. on March 30th, 2018)
Burton News and Form
Burton’s relegation struggles are very real and they lost once against on Friday as they slumped to a 3-1 loss in Cardiff. That was the third straight league defeat for them and it has left the Brewers winless in six with just the one point collected in that sequence. During that spell of six games, they have managed just two goals and have failed to score in six of their last nine league matches. Middlesbrough to win to nil at bet365 for 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 07:34 p.m. on March 30th, 2018) is worth consideration. Burton have won only two home games all season and they are on a horrendous fifteen match winless streak of form on home soil now and they have failed to hit the back of the net in any of their last four. In total, they have only managed 13 home goals this season and League One is looming pretty large for them now. They have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per game at the Pirelli Stadium this term.
Middlesbrough News and Form
What a game Boro were involved in on Friday. They found themselves 2-0 down against 9-man Wolves on home soil and just couldn’t do enough to pull themselves back into the game. That snapped a good six-match undefeated sequence that they were on (W4 D2) but they are still well in the play off picture and this is just going to be a good test of their character in trying to come up with a response. Away from home, they are undefeated in three (W1 D2) and they have averaged 1.5 goals per road game. In the bet365 correct score market Middlesbrough 1-0 is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 07:34 p.m. on March 30th, 2018) and given the lack of scoring from Burton this season, this is a game which is likely to go under 2.5 goals. 64% of Middlesbrough’s away goals have occurred in the second half of matches, fifteen of the eighteen-second half goals that they have scored, coming in the final 30 minutes of their road games. Can they deliver the response they need in such a tight play off race after the disappointments of Friday?
Burton v Middlesbrough Head to Head
There is not a great deal of history between them as this will actually only be the fourth clash between the two sides. Boro have won two of the previous three and their 2-0 success over Burton at the Riverside back in August was in their first ever league meeting. Their only previous trip to Burton ended in a 2-1 success in the 2015 Capital One Cup.
Who will win – Burton v Middlesbrough Predictions
Middlesbrough have been carrying fine form aside from their misfire against Wolves on Friday night and they should have enough still in this busy weekend to grind one out against the Brewers. It’s been a really poor return from Burton at home this season and aren’t likely to get much out of this.
