Top 3 Free Predictions and Betting Tips for Middlesbrough vs Cardiff

Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: Middlesbrough win or draw and under 3.5 goals – 1.49

Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Both teams to score no – 1.79

Bookmaker Ratings prediction three: Middlesbrough under 1.5 total goals – 1.94

Middlesbrough Win or Draw and Under 3.5 Goals

There is a 57% chance for Middlesbrough to win this game as they won 12 of their 21 home games this season. In addition, Middlesbrough’s last seven home games and Cardiff’s last six away games produced under 3.5 goals.

Both Teams To Score No

Five of Middlesbrough’s last six home games saw goals from only one side. Also, both teams scored in Cardiff’s 51% of overall games since the start of the season. Thus, the bookies are favoring BTTS not to happen in this match.

Middlesbrough Under 1.5 Goals

It hasn’t been a fine period recently for Middlesbrough in terms of scoring. To illustrate, Boro failed to score in their last four home games and in six of their last ten fixtures. In addition, Boro scored on average 1.38 goals per home game this season.

Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Middlesbrough vs Cardiff

With the 1-1 draw away at Swansea City, Middlesbrough extended their winless run to five games. In addition, Boro are now five points behind a playoff berth with 64 points and three matches left to play.

Moreover, coach Chris Wilder’s team are in a horrible scoring form with just one goal in their last five fixtures. That led Boro to lose many crucial points in their quest to return to the Premier League. In addition, Middlesbrough won just one of their last seven meetings with Cardiff and that was in Cardiff earlier this season.

As for Cardiff, it wasn’t a successful season as they lost 2 of their 43 games since August in the Championship. Additionally, after losing their last game at Sheffield United, the Bluebirds are on a three-match losing streak and lost four of their last five games,

Cardiff’s defensive performances in away games must be a concern for manager Steve Morison as his team conceded at least a goal in 19 of their 21 games. However, the  Bluebirds can find some consolation in the fact that they scored in 16 of those 21 trips.

Middlesbrough vs Cardiff Prediction

It will be tough to predict a winner for this match with both teams’ current negative form. Still, we think the best option is picking a combo bet of home win or draw and under 3.5 goals as all stats back this kind of outcome.

Safe Bet

The first half of Middlesbrough’s last eight Championship fixtures produced under 1 goal. Likewise, the same number of goals was produced in Cardiff’s last 13 of 14 games. Hence, we will back under 1 goal in the first half of this match which has an odds of 1.77.

Get Rich Quick

In two of the last three meetings between these two teams, Middlesbrough took a 1-0 lead. In addition, three times this season Boro won by the score of 1-0 at home while Cardiff lost twice on the road by the same score. Hence, with odds of 5.80, we will back the score of 1-0 as the correct score for this match. 

Middlesbrough vs Cardiff First Goalscorer

With eight goals scored in the Championship, Andraz Sporar is the joint top scorer of Boro. Moreover, the Slovenian forward opened the scoring in six matches this season. As a result, we will back Sporar to be the first goalscorer in this match with odds of 5.80 at Vbet.
