Middlesbrough has been winless in their last five championship games, with just one draw in it. Their previous encounter was on the road, and they lost to Derby with a 2-1 scoreline. Three of their last five winless fixtures came at home, which shows they will have trouble at the back in the next clash too.
Huddersfield is ten spots below the host on the table as it stands. The visitor has been winless for the past seven matches in the campaign, with two draws in it. Three of their last five defeats have come at home, suggesting they are not any better than the home team in the middle.

Middlesbrough vs Huddersfield Prediction
Middlesbrough is on a five-game winless run in the league while, the visitor has won none of their last seven fixtures in the campaign this season. With both teams in such poor form in the championship, we can expect an open play in the middle with both teams finding the back of the net in ninety minutes. So, the tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
Since the match is sizing to be anyone’s game with both teams in a winless run, the chances are almost equal for both teams in the middle. The host has a slight edge over the guest in their league standings and also with their ground advantage in the game. Hence, the home win in full-time will probably be an ideal situation for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter.
