Ipswich Town host Middlesbrough in mid-week Championship tie at Portman Road Stadium. The hosts drew each of five league games there so far in the season.

Middlesbrough fell to third in the league ladder after they only drew 1-1 to Hull City away at KCOM Stadium. Britt Assombalonga pushed Boro in front six minutes after the interval on Saturday, but the Tigers came back on level terms after Bowen’s penalty-kick goal.

Tony Pulis’ men thus won just one of last five league outings failing to find the back of the net in three of them. They look well-organized at the back, though, having only allowed two goals in last nine league matches.

Ipswich Town vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head

The head to head stats speak in Ipswich’s favour.

The Tractor Boys lead the tie by two wins ahead of their 41st meeting with Middlesbrough.

Nevertheless, the more recent history confirms Boro’s domination as the visitors won three and drew two of past five encounters against Ipswich Town.

Ipswich Town vs Middlesbrough: Prediction

The Tractor Boys are still the only team without a victory in the division. They drew six and lost four of nine games so far. Paul Hurst’s troops were close to snatching the inaugural three-pointer on Saturday when they were two goals ahead against Birmingham City away at St. Andrew’s, but only to allow the Bluues to make a second-half comeback empowered by a Lukas Jutkiewicz brace.

Three of last four league games Ipswich played at home ended in a 1-1 scoreline. The previous one saw a goalless draw against Bolton Wanderers. Given this, the Under 2.5 goals FT is a must-take bet here and we’ll go for it with higher stakes. The alternative pick will be Boro to keep a clean sheet at 2.20.

Ipswich Town vs Middlesbrough: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.53 (8/15)
  • Middlesbrough to keep a clean sheet @ 2.20 (6/5).
