Middlesbrough vs Hull City Predictions

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in three of Middlesbrough’s last five league games.
  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in six of Hull City’s last eight Championship away games.
  • Middlesbrough have scored exactly two goals in four of their last seven home games.

Boro should bounce back but no value in match price

Middlesbrough should get back to winning ways at home to Hull City this weekend, but the visitors’ excellent recent run of away clean sheets probably means the market value lies elsewhere.

Boro slipped out of the top six following Wednesday’s 1-0 home defeat to Fulham, but Chris Wilder’s team can hold their heads up high for the way they pushed hard to get back into the game. One slight concern for Boro backers here at around 8/15 could be their failure to convert the chances they did create against the runaway league leaders.

Leading striker Andraz Sporar has scored twice in his last 11 league appearances and the goals they were getting from Matty Crooks now appear to have dried up with the midfielder failing to find the target in his last eight league and cup games. Add in the Tigers’ record of five clean sheets from their past seven away games and you have the sort of ingredients for a frustrating afternoon on Teesside.

Go ‘unders’ on goals for safest approach

The safer approach to the game comes in the goals market where an under 2.5 goals play at around 10/11 seems very backable. Fewer than three goals have been scored in three of Middlesbrough’s last five league games and in six of Hull City’s last eight Championship away games.

Shota Arveladze will be without the services of Tom Eaves this weekend after the striker’s red card in the 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield last Friday and the Georgian has overlooked Mallik Wilks in recent games, so the Tigers look short on forward options here.

After failing to score in six of their last ten, it’s hard to envisage them scoring at the Riverside Stadium against a Boro side that will dominate and create chances. A 2-0 Boro success is the preferred correct score play even if we aren’t totally enamoured with their short match result price.  Wilder’s team have hit exactly two goals in four of their last seven home games.
