Middlesbrough - Preston North End betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:00 on 16/03/2021 played @ Riverside Stadium refereed by Oliver Langford

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Preston North End are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Middlesbrough should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

It would be a minor miracle for Preston North End to win at Middlesbrough, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.10 price on most online sportsbooks.

Middlesbrough came into their previous Championship match against Stoke City as slight favourites, but not many betting predictions expected such success. They turned a slight edge in form and home-field advantage into a decisive 3:0 victory.

It didn’t take much for Preston North End to lose their previous away match – an early concession snowballed into a tight 1:0 away loss. Their travelling fans were not too happy considering they were considered to be in better form than Wycombe Wanderers, the home team in that match.

The Boro have a reputation for consistently scoring high, especially in the past few matches. Records show more than 5 goals scored in total over their previous 3 outings, which is a fairly strong result.

Our confidence that Preston North End will manage to hold their composure in an away game is shaky. They have over 5 concessions on record in their latest 3 visiting games alone.

Though the odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, the head-to-head history for this Championship clash tells a different story. The Boro lost the last time these two teams met on the pitch, so an upset is definitely possible.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Tuesday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

You can safely put down an Over 2.5 Goals bet on this match and feel very confident. If the teams’ records are any indication, 3 or more goals in this match are almost guaranteed.
