Wycombe Wanderers vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Adams Park (High Wycombe).
Wycombe Wanderers broke their 12-game winless streak in the campaign with a win last time out in their championship schedule. The 2-1 win at home against the likes of Cardiff City was their third win within their 22 league appearances so far this season.
Middlesbrough has picked up 33 points from 9 wins and 6 draws in their 21 attempts. Having a lead of 18 points with a game in hand gives the guest a slight edge in the upcoming clash over the host. They will visit on the back of a 2-1 loss on the road against Sheffield Wednesday last time out.

Wycombe vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Wycombe has scored only 15 goals in the campaign so far this season. In the meantime, they have conceded 32 goals in the same period. This shows that the host has trouble scoring goals while holding a shaky defense in the middle.
The host will play on the back of a win in their league schedule, but that win was only their third one in their 22 attempts. So, we cannot expect the promoted team to carry on that trend in the upcoming matches, especially against stronger sides in the mix.
Middlesbrough has lost two of their recent five matches in the campaign. Besides, they are also visiting on the back of a loss. So, we can expect the visitors to come into the game with all guns blazing.
The tip for Middlesbrough to win either half of the match will probably be a suitable option in the clash. Besides, the draw no bet over Middlesbrough will probably be the best bet for the punters.
