Plymouth vs Middlesbrough: Top free betting tips

Following a victory in the EFL Cup against Exeter, Middlesbrough will be focused on extending their winning form in the EFL Championship against Plymouth Argyle. The fixture will take place at Home Park on Saturday, 4 November. The Pilgrims enter this game after dropping all three points against Ipswich Town.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

The last two league H2Hs of these two sides have been low-scoring affairs. However, Plymouth and Middlesbrough have been incredible on their scoring end in EFL Championship recently. The Pilgrims have netted the ball 13 times in their last five games at Home Park. On the other hand, Middlesbrough scored 14 goals in the same number of games away from Riverside Stadium. Hence, we predict this game to feature a total of Under 3.5 Goals.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Middlesbrough have found the back of the net in each of their last five games away from Riverside Stadium. On the other hand, Plymouth have netted the ball in four of their recent five games at Home Park. Defensively, the Pilgrims have conceded goals in three of their last four home fixtures. Middlesbrough have also allowed goals at the back in each of their previous three league outings. Additionally, two of the last four league H2Hs of these teams have finished with BTTS outcomes. Therefore, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this fixture.  

Correct score prediction: 3-2 to Middlesbrough

Plymouth Argyle have rattled the net five times in their last two league outings. But Middlesbrough are even better by scoring multiple goals in each of their previous five road fixtures, scoring at least three goals in three games. Defensively, Boro has conceded five goals in the aforestated period. On the other hand, the Pilgrims have leaked more than one goal in three of their last five league outings. Considering these facts, we predict a 2-3 victory for Middlesbrough in this encounter.
