Aston Villa v Middlesbrough Championship Preview, 16th March 3.00pm

The Villains have hit a rich vein of form with a three-match winning streak going for them. That has seen them creep up well on the top six. They have a chance to push even closer with three points against Middlesbrough. Boro are fifth but falling out of form. Read our Aston Villa v Middlesbrough betting tips for more.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 10:17 p.m.)


Aston Villa News and Form

The Villains have a head of steam up at the moment. They are on a three-match winning streak after a midweek 3-1 success at Nottingham Forest. That is the only goal which Villa have conceded in their last three as well. Villa are unbeaten in their last four league games and this big upturn in form has seen them put together a charge for the top six. They could end up in the playoff spots this weekend with a win in this game and other results going their way.

Aston Villa are W7 D 8 L3 at home this season in the Championship. Their last home game saw Villa take a big 4-0 win over Derby. That is only the second win in their last nine on home soil in the second tier though. Aston Villa have produced an average of two goals per home fixture so far, and 72% of fixtures at Villa Park have gone over 2.5 goals. Aston Villa have been leaky at the back for the large part of the season, shipping an average of 1.8 goals per home game. Of their home goals conceded, 62% of them have been after the halftime break.

Four of the last five meetings at Villa Park have ended in a draw

Middlesbrough News and Form

There has been a bit of a drop off in the form of Middlesbrough. They have lost their last two and have gone winless in their last three played. Their last two games have ended in 2-1 scoreline reverses against Brentford and Preston. They have actually suffered three losses in their last six now. So they need to get the ship steadied in their push for a playoff spot. They aren’t doing too badly on the road with a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five away games. Middlesbrough have the best defensive record in the Championship this season and have taken a clean sheet in 39% of their road games.

In attack, Middlesbrough have averaged slightly over a goal per game. They have only produced the one goal in their last three away from the Riverside. A third of their road games only have made it over 2.5 goals. Of the eight away victories which they have posted, six of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Boro have been level at half time in 10 of their 18 away fixtures. Two-thirds of their away goals have been scored in the second half of fixtures.

All credit to Villa for having gotten themselves going well. They should avoid defeat on home soil in this one, but winning streaks are hard to maintain. Boro may well be able to dig in there and pick up a point as their away form isn’t all that bad.

Middlesbrough v Preston Championship Preview, 13th March 7.45pm

Boro had a slip on the weekend in their push for a top six finish. They suffered a home defeat against Brentford. They stay at home for midweek action as they welcome Preston. Preston are on a good run of form at the moment as well having climbed up into the top ten. Read our Middlesbrough v Preston betting tips for more.

Draw 23/10
Preston 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)


Middlesbrough News and Form

It was a 2-1 home loss that Middlesbrough suffered against Brentford on the weekend. That was an upset as Boro hadn’t conceded a goal in any of their three league games prior to that. It leaves Boro at W7 D6 L4 for the season. The loss against the Bees saw a four-match home unbeaten streak snapped for Boro. It does also actually only leave them with two wins in their last eight at the Riverside (D3 L4).

So it’s not been the strongest of home form. Boro have only scored 18 goals in 17 home games for the season and only 18% of games at the Riverside have gone over 2.5 goals. Defensively Boro have done well with a clean sheet earned in 53% of home fixtures. Both teams have scored in just 29% of Boro’s home games. Of the seven home wins recorded by Boro, four of them have been by a two-goal margin. 61% of their home goals have been scored in the first half of matches.

Preston News and Form

Preston claimed a 1-0 away win at Blackburn on the weekend which keeps them in very good form. They are now unbeaten in their last ten Championship fixtures, winning six of those. So it has been very good stuff from them and there is every chance that they will push Boro hard here. Preston are on a five-match winning streak away from home at the moment and they scored at least two goals in all but one of those.

Preston are W7 D3 L8 on their travels in the division this season. It is worth noting that they have lost all four away games played this season against current top-six sides and they failed to score in three of those four games. Preston have scored in each of their last six games away from home, with 64% of all their away goals coming after the half time break. They have conceded two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of fixtures too.

Preston are full of confidence at the moment and are so hard to beat. With Boro not having done a great deal of winning at home recently, there is every chance that the visitors can turn up at the Riverside and grab a point.

Blackburn slipped to a defeat out a at Reading in midweek which leaves them on a three-match losing streak in the Championship. That has come after they had managed to put a four-match winning streak together in the division. The overall home form of Blackburn this season reads W7 D6 L3. Less than half of their league games at Ewood Park this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Blackburn have taken two clean sheets in their last three home fixtures and have totalled a clean sheet in 31% of all home games this term.

Rovers have not been involved in a draw in any of their last nine league games. They have been level at the halftime break in 12 of their 16 league home games this season. Second-half goals have certainly been a feature of matches at Ewood Park, Blackburn have scored 78% of their home goals after the halftime break. They have conceded 81% of their home goals in the second half of games too. Only three sides in the division have a worse defensive record than Rovers have this season.

Middlesbrough News and Form

Middlesbrough took a bit of a hit in their push for promotion in midweek. They suffered a 1-0 defeat in Bramall Lane against Sheffield United. That snapped a positive run of six matches undefeated that they were on. So they head back out on the road on the weekend looking to restore a bit of order. The loss at Sheffield United leaves Middlesbrough at W2 D1 L1 in their last four away games. Overall this season Middlesbrough have posted a W7 D6 L3 record on their Championship travels.

Middlesbrough have conceded at less than a goal per game on average this season (home and away combined). Only 38% of their away games in the league have ended up over 2.5 goals. Boro have taken a clean sheet in 31% of all away games. They have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last four away from home and in none of their last six overall.

Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades earned a point in a crazy 3-3 draw at Aston Villa on the weekend. That left them in third place, three points behind second-placed Leeds. Sheffield United have won five of their last eight league games, but have only taken one in their last four (D2 L1). Overall this season on home soil the Blades have a W9 D3 L3 record in the league. Two of their three home defeats have been against other current top-four sides. The Blades have some strong form going on home soil though at the moment.

They are on a four-match winning streak on home soil at the moment, each to their last three have been with a clean sheet as well. They have earned a clean sheet in 40% of their home fixtures. They have averaged only 0.87 goals against them this season. 77% of their goals conceded at Bramall Lane have been in the second period of matches. The Blades have netted in each of their last five home games and have not been losing at the halftime break in any home fixture.

Middlesbrough News and Form

Middlesbrough had to settle for a point at home against Leeds on the weekend ina 1-1 draw. They have produced a bit of away form, having won three of their last four away from the Riverside (D1). Overall this season they are at W7 D6 L2 on the road in the Championship. In their last away game, they took a very good three points out at West Brom. Boro have scored in each of their last seven on the road. They are, however, the lowest scoring side in the top fifteen in the league.

Boro have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last five games home and away in the league. They are without a clean sheet in three on the road. They have scored a total of 20 goals on their travels this season and 14 of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Middlesbrough currently boast the best defensive record in the division. Only two sides (Norwich and Leeds) have a better away record than Boro do this season. Three points out of this would be massive for them.

Middlesbrough News and Form

Boro have shown some good form lately, in the Championship at least. We say that because they were dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two side Newport in midweek. Anyway, Boro are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven league games so it has been a good return from them. Their record at the Riverside this season is W6 D5 L3 but they have been off the boil a bit there lately. They have posted just the one victory in their last five home fixtures (D2 L2). However, Boro have produced a W3 D1 record at home against current top-eight sides this season.

They have been a bit lean in front of goal with them having averaged exactly one goal per game. Their defence has been a big plus for them though as they have shipped at an average of 0.64 goals per home game, which is fantastic. They have taken a clean sheet in 57% of home games. Each of their last four at the Riverside have ended under 2.5 goals and overall on home soil, just 14% of their games have gone above that goal line. Boro are head and shoulders the team with the best defensive record in the Championship.

Middlesbrough v Leeds Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw played out at Elland Road between them in August
Things are even at W1 D2 L1 in their last four league clashes
Both teams have scored in just one of the last eight league meetings
Leeds have won just one of their last five against Boro

Leeds News and Form

Leeds have seen four defeats come their way in their last six league fixtures. They are still in a tight tussle for top spot though. They had suffered back to back away games before collected a 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Rotherham in their last away game. Overall that leaves them at W8 D3 L4 on their travels this term. Leeds have been scoring well, having produced 26 goals in their fifteen away games. 67% of their road games have gone over the 2.5 goal line. Playing its part in that is Leeds having conceded at an average of 1.4 goals per road game.

Leeds have scored in all of their away games this season, but they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four away from Elland Road. Of the goals which the Whites have produced this season on their travels, Leeds have scored 73% in the second half of fixtures. Only Middlesbrough and Norwich have better away records this season than Leeds have in the Championship. The Whites have the joint fourth-best offence and fourth-best defensive record in the tier. They just need to start getting some consistency back into their game.

Newport v Middlesbrough FA Cup Preview, 5th February 7.45pm

Championship side Middlesbrough have made life a little tricky for themselves in not having finished this tie at the first attempt on home soil. Will they be able to lift themselves past their League Two opponents Newport down in South Wales? The winner faces up to Manchester City in the next round.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)


Newport v Middlesbrough Preview

When these two met at the Riverside back at the end of January, that was the first ever meeting that they had had. Now in such a short space of time, they are at it again after their 1-1 draw. Newport are in the bottom half of League Two and they aren’t in any kind of great form really. They have only managed to take the three wins in their last four games across all competitions. Two of those three wins though, were in the FA Cup. That was a 4-0 win over Wrexham in a second-round replay, and then a 2-1 upset against Premier League side Leicester in the last round. They have been struggling for wins, but at Rodney Parade they have been tough to beat. The Exiles have only lost one of their last 12 home games in all competitions. So that is some strength that they have there and they have actually collected a clean sheet in three of their last four home fixtures. If you want to extend that back a little bit further, then they have five clean sheets in their last eight at home

Boro really stood up to a big challenge on the weekend in the Championship, as they got themselves a 3-2 win at West Brom in a big showdown. That moved Boro onto seven matches unbeaten across all Compton (W4 D3). Boro almost got across the finish line when these two met at the Riverside. They shipped an equaliser in stoppage time. So this could be a bit of an uncomfortable away game for them, but Boro are clear favourites. Middlesbrough are a tough side to break down and they are on a streak of form where they have lost only one of their last 12 road fixtures in all competitions. Boro have hit the back of the net in each of their last seven road games as well. However, in that same spell of seven games, Boro have conceded in six of them. This will be Middlesbrough’s first ever visit to Rodney Parade.

Who will win – Newport v Middlesbrough Predictions

Now, this may not be the most comfortable of evenings for Middlesbrough down in South Wales, they should be able to find their way through to the fifth round. We are expecting another tight game and Middlesbrough to win by a one-goal margin looks a solid proposition at 13/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)

Championship Tips & Odds – 29th December 2018

It is another action-packed day of Championship football on Saturday with all teams in action during the 3.00 pm kick offs. Leeds extended their lead at the top of the table with yet another win on Boxing Day. Behind them, Norwich and West Brom both continued their strong form as well in the push for promotion. One of the big games of the day is Norwich v Derby from Carrow Road.

Here are our Championship predictions and tips for Saturday, December 29th, 2018.

West Brom v Sheffield Wednesday

The Baggies are undefeated in their last eight Championship fixtures now and are running hot against. They won six of those eight fixtures and banked a 2-0 success at the Hawthorns over Wigan on Boxing Day. They have netted at least two goals in seven of their last eight games and will that be enough to see of Wednesday? The Owls pulled off a bit of a surprise in midweek in taking a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough which snapped some poor away form.

The Baggies take some stopping at home and they should enough about them to get the win with the clean sheet at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 27th, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.)

Millwall v Nottingham Forest

The Lions got themselves a much-needed win in midweek as they collected 1 -0 home success over Reading. That was a big survival scrap at The Den and it moves Millwall a point clear of the drop zone. Still, plenty of work to do for them but they are W1 D2 L1 in their last four at home now. They now face Nottingham Forest who were involved in another high-scoring draw. After their recent 5-5 thriller at Villa Park, Forest collected a 3-3 draw at Norwich on Boxing Day. That was despite being 3-0 up with fifteen minutes to go at Carrow Road. Still, it does suggest that they could come up with the goals to hurt the hosts.

The Lions have done alright at home, but Forest could turn up and find the goals to get past them. Away win for Forest at 6/4 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 27th, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.)

Sheffield United v Blackburn

What a big win the Blades got for themselves in midweek as they toppled Derby in a top-six clash at Bramall Lane. Can they drive on from there are strengthen their place inside the top four now? That is the question. The home win over Derby came after back to back home losses that the Blades had suffered. This will be their easiest home game for a while though after having faced West Brom and Leeds, with Blackburn just inside the bottom half of the table. Rovers almost had the beating of league leaders Leeds at Elland Road in midweek but conceded two goals after the 90th minute to end up losing 3-2. That’s the way things are going for them with only one victory in their last eight games. That was at home too.

Sheffield United have to build on that success over Derby in midweek. They are a good solid home option for Saturday and are worth a flutter to win to nil at 7/4* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 27th, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.)

Preston v Aston Villa

This could be quite the interesting clash. Preston have slipped to back to back defeats, but their general form at Deepdale this season in the Championship has been solid enough. They have gone W4 D2 L1 in their last seven league home fixtures, averaging over two goals per game. They were beaten there in a bit of an upset against Hull on Boxing Day though. But that continued their streak of scoring in every home game played this term. Aston Villa picked up a good away win at Swansea in midweek and they are W5 D3 L1 in their last nine games which is a good run. They have won three of their last four on the road as well (D1).

The two may be pretty evenly matched at the end of the day in terms of output. Neither defence is great and the draw has the most appeal in the match outright at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 27th, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.).

But only a point separated them and second-place Norwich. The two are starting to open up a bit of a gap at the top though.

Nothing changed at the bottom of the table last time out with none of the bottom three managing to get a win on the board. Here are our Championship tips and predictions for December 26th, 2018. These are all 3.00 pm kick offs.

Leeds v Blackburn

Kemar Roofe came up with a late winner at Aston Villa on Sunday to give Leeds a huge three points to leave them top of the Christmas Championship tree. It was also their sixth straight league win. They have really been powering along lately and have conceded in just two of their last six. Leeds have a W7 D3 L1 record on home soil and they are on a three-match winning streak at Elland Road. Blackburn lost against Norwich on the weekend leaving them with one win in seven. With them being winless in five-way from home, the outcome seems obvious.

Leeds to win to nil checks our boxes at 13/8 odds* (betting odds taken on December 24th, 2018 at 2:24 am) as Rovers just don’t have the winning form to challenge.

Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday

Boro snapped a four-match winless streak with a win on the weekend out at Reading. It was a narrow 1-0 success for them. But it strengthened their spot in the top six. It hasn’t been the hottest of form from them lately though, but will Sheffield Wednesday be able to raise enough of a threat? The Owls haven’t won on the road since back at the start of October. Given that Boro generally don’t give up too much on home soil, this is a tough away game for a team who have conceded an average of two road goals per game.

Even though Boro aren’t in top form at the moment there should be enough for them there to squeeze out a narrow win. Middlesbrough to win and under 2.5 goals at 11/8* (betting odds taken on December 24th, 2018 at 2:24 am)

Norwich v Nottingham Forest

It has been some fantastic stuff from Norwich who are unbeaten in eleven games now after earning a 1-0 away win at Blackburn on the weekend. That’s getting the job done. The Canaries are on a five-match winning streak at Carrow Road, scoring at least three goals in each of their last three there. Notts Forest were on a great unbeaten run of form but they have been tripped up twice in their last three games, both 1-0 home defeats actually. Strangely since a 5-5 draw against Villa at the end of November, Forest have failed to score in three of their following four games. They are unbeaten in eight on the road though.

We are going to predict that Forest are going to be good enough to dig in and get something out of this game. The draw in the match outright does appeal here at 27/10* (betting odds taken on December 24th, 2018 at 2:24 am)

QPR v Ipswich

QPR have climbed the table with back to back league wins under their belt. Those were wins against two of the current top seven as well in Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest. So that’s a great six points Rangers have picked up. They get an easier looking home game in this one as well as they face Ipswich who are floundering at the bottom of the table. The Tractor Boys have picked up four points in their last two games, but still, it’s four losses in their last six. They taken one point in their last five road games, failing to score in four of those.

QPR to win to nil is a perfect fit for this one at 7/4 odds given the upturn in form from Rangers and Ipswich’s lack of goals* (betting odds taken on December 24th, 2018 at 2:24 am).

Preston v Hull

Preston are the bottom of the table, in 15th actually after the weekend. They suffered a loss out at Sheffield Wednesday which ruined their positive recent form of back to back wins. Still, they are in decent shape at home as they are unbeaten in six at Deepdale. So that’s good stuff from them but they are catching Hull possibly at the wrong time. The Tigers have continued their major upward swing now having won three of their last four (D1). They are unbeaten in five and have lost just one of their last nine (W4 D3 L1). That was after losing nine of their first fourteen games of the season.

The draw is going to tickle our fancy here. The Tigers have drawn two of their last three on the road and Preston aren’t easily knocked down at Deepdale. The draw at 12/5 odds is a good proposition* (betting odds taken on December 24th, 2018 at 2:24 am).
