Middlesbrough vs West Brom top free betting tips

The Smoggies host the Baggies in this clash just before Christmas. Michael Carrick's Middlesbrough side will be looking to make it two wins from their previous two matches to end what is currently a run of bad form with Middlesbrough having lost four of their previous six matches. West Brom has lost just twice in their previous six matches, losing to Leicester and Sunderland with wins to Ipswich, Cardiff and Rotherham on either side of those two defeats.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Both of West Brom's previous two matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored with that being extended to four from their previous six if we look back a little further. Last season Middlesbrough were the entertainer in the division as they were a free-scoring attacking side who lacked defensively, this season they seem to have lost that spark in attack and have scored just three times in their previous three matches.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

West Brom has recently had the better of things in recent meetings but they have still struggled to prevent Middlesbrough from scoring with both teams finding the back of the net in four of the previous five meetings with the most recent meeting seeing West Brom earn a 4-2 victory. Middlesbrough have failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their previous four matches while failing to score just once in those four matches.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

Despite West Brom being in better form and having the better of things in recent meetings, we can see both sides earning a point in this match. The Christmas period is always a tricky period with three games in the space of six or seven days meaning players get tired, managers rotate and teams just do whatever they can to earn any points they can. We expect the latter to be what Middlesbrough do, they have not got the luxury of rotating their injury-ravaged squad so will be looking to do what they can over this busy period before the January transfer window opens.
