Brentford vs Middlesbrough: Prediction
As the matter of fact, The Bees have the best goal difference in league right now thanks to commanding 5-1 win against Hull City last weekend. They will try to keep up with great form this Saturday in front of the home crowd against table strugglers Middlesbrough. The odds-on home win at the moment are 1.55.
Middlesbrough have had many ups and downs this season. Team from Riverside is sitting in the 18th position on the table, but they still have a lot of breathing room from relegation zone teams.
Jonathan Woodgate can’t be happy with performances of his offensive line. Boro produced only 30 goals in 30 matches, which is way under the pre-season expectations.
If we exclude surprising 1-0 home loss to Nottingham Forest, Brentford’s fans are having tons of reasons to be happy. The team won three encounters in the last three weeks against Bristol City, QPR and Hull City with a total goal difference of 12-2.
We will back hosts to continue their promotion chase and to win this match. Backing home win and both teams to score is a good value as well.
As for the secondary suggestion, Brentford’s Ollie Watkins has been on fire in the last couple of months so consider backing him to bag at least one goal.
