Middlesbrough vs Wolves Championship preview

8th placed Wolves travel to the Riverside with play off ambitions, but it is the 4th placed form horses Middlesbrough who look the best bet to take all three points

1.         Middlesbrough haven’t lost at home to Wolves since April 1951, and this run includes 13 victories in 21 home games. They are statistically the Championships’ strongest team, and  5/6 is a great price on them recording another home win.

2.         Middlesbrough have the Championships’ stingiest home defence, recording a clean sheet in a highly impressive 57% of home fixtures. Another one is superb value at 5/4.

3.         28% of Middlesbrough home games have resulted in them winning 2-0 and the last time the two teams met at the Riverside the hosts won the game by this score. A repeat result is priced at 7/1.

4.         Both teams have scored in just 33% of Middlesbrough home games. Back the trend to continue at 3/4.

5.         Patrick Bamford is the league’s 9th top scorer with 16 goals. Over 65% of these goals have come at the Riverside. Back him to score again at 6/5.

6.         The league average of games resulting in over 2.5 goals is 50% but in Middlesbrough games it is just 38%. Back under 2.5 at 13/20.

7.         If anyone can break the deadlock for Wolves then it will most likely be Bakary Sako. The Frenchman has 13 goals this season, with just over 60% of these coming against teams placed 12th or higher in the table. 11/4 on him scoring again is worth a small punt.
