Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Sunderland have scored 20 goals in 10 league games and are facing a Middlesbrough side who have only failed to score in one of their last 10 games across all competitions. Both of these teams are in fine form, so we’re expecting goals at both ends in this latest edition of the Tees-Wear derby.

Sunderland 2-1

Reason for tip

Home advantage could be key here and Sunderland are the side in the better form with five wins in their last six games. Middlesbrough can at least get on the scoresheet, but with the Black Cats averaging exactly two goals-per-game a 2-1 win for the home side appeals.

Sunderland vs Middlesbrough Predictions

  • Sunderland have scored 20 goals in 10 Championship games.
  • Middlesbrough have scored in nine of their last 10 games.
  • Sunderland have three wins in their last four at the Stadium of Light.

In-form derby rivals face off in Sunderland

There is a Tees-Wear derby to look forward to in the early Championship game as in-form pair Sunderland and Middlesbrough meet at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland are riding high in fourth spot with 19 points from 10 games. Boro are down in 17th, but appear to have recovered after a poor start to the season with three wins in their last three games.

Expect goals at both ends

With both teams in good form, backing both teams to score looks the best option for our main bet.

Sunderland have scored 20 goals in their 10 league games and have only failed to score in two of those fixtures. Boro have scored in six successive games in all competitions and have only failed to score in one of their last 10.

The Black Cats have also conceded in four of their six home games across all competitions, so goals at both ends appears likely.

Sunderland can make most of home advantage

Sunderland have won five of their last six games and three of their last four at home. Their one defeat during that run came at this venue against Cardiff, and they were incredibly unlucky not to at least take a point in that fixture.

Home advantage could well make the difference here, so a 2-1 win for the home side looks a reasonable correct score prediction as Sunderland are averaging exactly two goals per-game and Boro have scored 12 goals in their 10 league outings.
