Middlesbrough vs Hull Prediction
It’s been quite a while since Middlesbrough last had a change in fortune. The hosts are without a win in their past nine games in the Championship, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw against QPR on the road.
Garnering no more than four points in the process, from a possible twenty-seven, the home side are deservedly one of the bottom three sides at the moment.
On the other hand, Hull were left disappointed, prior to the international break, after table-toppers West Brom edged it past the visitors with a slender 1-0 win. The defeat also brought the away side’s impressive three-match winning streak to an abrupt halt.
Nevertheless, the guests are sporting a nine-point cushion over Middlesbrough on the ladder. It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have been faring well on the road this season. The squad have been recording back to back wins in their last two outings in a running, and have stumbled just twice in their previous seven.
With Middlesbrough hardly faring any better, even with home advantage at hand, Hull are the favorites to go all the way in this one. However, the hosts have managed to salvage a point at the least in half of their last six games here.
Taking into account that Hull have not got the better of this foe in any of their last four visits here either, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, Hull’s frontline have been too hot to handle in the final third and have scored eight goals from their last four outings alone. Considering that Middlesbrough have also been breaching this foe consistently in each of their previous four h2h games here, count on both teams to rack up the goals scoring charts this weekend.
