Luton Town vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road (Luton).
Luton Town is under no pressure in the clash as the top six spots have already been filled this term. The home team will still aim to build on their recent strong form in the campaign. The host has been unbeaten for the past four clashes in the campaign, following a 2-3 win on the road against the likes of Bristol City last time out in their schedule.
Middlesbrough has a three-point lead over the host on the table as it stands. The away team will also come into the game hot with a double win in their schedule. They will visit on the back of a 3-1 win at home against Sheffield Wednesday in the last league clash. Like the Hatters, the visitor will also play for nothing other than pride in the upcoming clash on Saturday.

Luton Town vs Middlesbrough Prediction
From their recent h2h meetings, it is evident that the teams prefer a more defensive game than playing all out for the three points. Their last two h2h clashes ended with the same 1-0 scoreline and both teams have a win each in them. So, the tip for no BTTS will come in handy for the goals department in the encounter to yield decent returns.
Luton Town is in decent form in the campaign and will try to build on that. In addition to that, the host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle. In the meantime, Middlesbrough has lost three of their last four outings in the campaign. Thus, the double chance favoring Luton Town will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
