Middlesbrough vs Wigan: Top Free Betting Tips

Middlesbrough returns home to play the next game of the EFL Championship against Wigan Athletic on Monday, 26 December. The Boro faced a defeat against Burnley in the last attempt while the Latics lost to Sheffield United.

Match Result Prediction: Middlesbrough to Win

The Boro have been getting through a run of unbeaten games and won five of the last seven outings. But Wigan Athletic have been desperate in recent outings and they registered only one victory in the previous ten outings. The Latics are also without a victory in the last six away outings and lost four of them. Moreover, the Boro have recorded a long unbeaten streak in H2Hs against Wigan and won four of the previous six duels. So we back Middlesbrough to fancy their chances in front of the home fans.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

The last two H2Hs of these teams have witnessed both teams on the scoring side and we expect the same case for this game. Middlesbrough’s front line has secured a scoring string by hitting the target in all of the recent eight attempts. On the other hand, Wigan Athletic have also missed the target only once in the last five outings, despite a winless run. The Boro have also allowed goals in all of the last three outings in the Championship.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough were clipped to score only one goal in the last game but they scored at least twice in consecutive four games before that. On the defensive end, the Boro have leaked more than once in only one of the last seven outings. On the other hand, Wigan Athletic have been on the scoring side in recent consecutive visits but they scored more than once in only one of the last five away outings. So we predict the Boro to limit the Latics to a low score and take a lead of 3-1 before the final whistle blows.
