Tip Reasoning

  • Middlesbrough have won two of their last three league games including a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Stoke at the weekend.
  • Preston have won just one of their last seven Championship matches, losing four.
  • The Lilywhites’ 1-0 defeat at bottom side Wycombe on Saturday marked their fourth loss in five away trips.

Back Boro to seal third win in four

Preston beat Middlesbrough 3-0 at Deepdale in December’s reverse fixture but there’s every reason to expect a turnaround this Tuesday night with the Lilywhites in desperate form.

If the old adage about being as good as your last game is correct, then Preston are woeful value here at around 3/1 following their dismal 1-0 loss against basement dwellers Wycombe on Saturday.

The Lilywhites have been struggling for a few weeks though now and that result at Adams Park marked their fourth league defeat in seven (W1, D2) and their fourth loss from five on the road.

Boro look like just falling short of the Play-Offs with eight points separating them from sixth placed Barnsley, but Neil Warnock’s men have won two of their last three and they comfortably dispatched Stoke City here 3-0 at the weekend.

The hosts have won half of their games at the Riverside this season and on that basis they’re no more than fairly priced for this Tuesday’s contest at just under evens, though when we factor in Preston’s recent troubles, Boro rate a solid bet to land the three points.

Warnock’s side aren’t usually as free-scoring as we saw on Saturday and they have averaged 1.22 goals per game this term, so we’re also predicting a 1-0 correct score with Preston failing to net in three of their last five away trips.
