Blackburn vs Middlesbrough: Top free betting tips

 Middlesbrough will be desperate to find the breakthrough in the EFL Championship this season when they travel to Blackburn Rovers in the next fixture. Both teams will be entering Ewood Park on Saturday, 16 September. The Rovers will also be aiming to regain their winning form after losing the previous match against Plymouth Argyle in the league.

Match result prediction: Blackburn to win

Despite fighting in the Premier League promotion play-offs last season, Middlesbrough have proved the worst side of the EFL Championship this season. The Boro have suffered four defeats in the opening five league rounds while ending one in a draw. On the other hand, Blackburn has recorded two victories and a draw in the same duration. The Riversiders have also won three of their last five meetings with Middlesbrough. Therefore, we set Blackburn as our favourite to take the lead in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Middlesbrough have rattled the net in three of the previous four fixtures away from Riverside Stadium. The Boro have also contributed to BTTS outcomes in three of the last four H2Hs against Blackburn Rovers. On the other hand, Blackburn Rovers rattled the net in each of the previous four competitive games at Ewood Park. But they have been unable to find a single clean sheet in that course. Hence, we can expect the teams to bring a BTTS result in this fixture.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Blackburn

Middlesbrough has found the back of the net just four times in the last five H2Hs against Blackburn Rovers. The Boro have also scored more than once in only one of the previous five league outings. Their defence has also been in trouble, conceding multiple goals in three matches during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Blackburn scored two or more goals in two of the last three games at Ewood Park. Given these facts, we predict a 2-1 advantage for Blackburn at the end of the ninety minutes of this game.
