Middlesbrough to maintain their unbeaten run

Middlesbrough are one of the founding members of the Premier League in 1992. However, the Boros were relegated in the same season. After a fine 11 season spell in the PL, they got relegated again in 2006. Although the club returned in 2016, Instant relegation followed. Notably, Boro’s best achievement is winning the League Cup in 2004 and reaching the UEFA Cup final in 2006.

During this season, Boro are having a somewhat 50/50 season and certainly not their best one. To point out, Middlesbrough won eight drew six, and lost eight matches. If that shows anything it’s boss Chris Wilder’s team’s inconsistency throughout this season. However, Boro are undefeated in three matches and a positive result here may pave the way for promising things in the future.

Bournemouth to sustain the pressure at the top

Bournemouth won the Championship title in the 2015/16 season and gained promotion to the Premier League. In 2020 though they were relegated back to the second tier of English football and last season finished sixth. This season the Cherries look more determined to get back to the top flight as they are second in the table. Moreover, Bournemouth started the season incredibly well going 15 matches without tasting a defeat.

However, The Cherries’ fortunes had a huge turnaround as they are looking for their first win in five matches. That run cost them to lose the top spot to Fulham. Hence coming into this game, Bournemouth are looking for their first away win in three matches. A sense of comfort might fill coach Scott Parker’s mind considering his team has not lost to Boro in their last four meetings.

Middlesbrough vs Bournemouth Prediction

According to the bookies, this match is one of those in which the winner is unpredictable. To clarify, a Middlesbrough win has odds of 2.76 while a Bournemouth win pays 2.65. As a result, we think it’s safer to look for another bet rather than the winner.

Looking at both teams’ recent scoring form, we see that Boro scored at least a goal in four of their last five home matches. While Bournemouth scored in all of their last five away matches.

Hence we will back over 1.5 goals to be scored in this match and combine it with a double chance outcome to obtain better odds. Also since both teams’ results and form are almost alike, we will back a draw for our second prediction.
