Middlesbrough vs Cardiff Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Middlesbrough vs Cardiff is a promising fixture and we have high expectations. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Most of the matches between these two teams in recent years have been very competitive and we often see a good number of goals. Right now, both sides seem to be very strong and we expect goals on both ends. You can pick between the over and the BTTS and we believe that the chances are fairly equal. Cardiff have not been this strong in years and we expect more from them than the usual h2h.

Match Result Prediction: Middlesbrough to Win

This will be a very close game and we generally do not suggest betting on a winner. If we had to pick one of the teams, it would be Middlesbrough. Cardiff have been incredible at home but on the road, the team continues to struggle. Middlesbrough are not as good as we are used to seeing them but we still think that they have the advantage as the home side.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Middlesbrough

As mentioned above, this will be a close match and we think that both sides will have their chances. The 2-1 scoreline feels like the best option here, given that we expect goals on both ends. When we compare the Middlesbrough vs Cardiff line ups, we think that the home side has a better squad and should have the advantage on paper.

Middlesbrough vs Cardiff Team Previews

Middlesbrough Preview

Middlesbrough are back to the sinkhole and have barely won two matches since the start of the season. Both were in the last two weeks. The team can score goals but that defense is a huge problem. They have conceded 17 goals in the first 9 matches, which makes them the third weakest team.

Cardiff Preview

Cardiff have been a pleasant surprise in the new season and the team definitely provides the most entertaining games in the league. Their goal difference in 9 matches is 16:12. They are one of the best teams in attack and their main problem is the defense. They concede too much and it could lead to bad results.
