Stoke City vs Middlesbrough Top free betting tips

Michael Carrick's Middlesbrough are a very odd side this season, the Boro travelled to the King Power Stadium and walked away with all three points after beating the Foxes 2-1 but they followed that victory up with a 2-0 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle who, before that win, had won just one time away all season. Stoke City are in awful form themselves and recently saw themselves drop into the relegation zone after back-to-back defeats against Coventry City and Cardiff City. The Potters have won just once in their previous seven matches, losing the other six.
