Reason For Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips

Thats a fine streak, and theyll be out to extend that fine form with a result in this clash. Wednesday isnt exactly a word which brings enthusiasm for Blades fans, but they have a fantastic record on this particular day of the week. Sheffield United are unbeaten in 12 home league games played on Wednesday (W9 D3) since losing 0-1 in March 1993 against Norwich City. However, they are likely to have issues from the Middlesbrough attack, who come into this game with some fine form in front of goal.

In all these games, Wednesday played some dynamic football and can take great heart from their capacity to compete against the top sides, despite being pegged back in all of them. With key players like star striker Fernando Forestieri and midfield playmaker Barry Bannan back fully fit from injury, the team looks like it has a strong basis to make a sustained play-off run and they look a formidable opponent at the moment.

In order to sustain a promotion bid, the club has to improve on this and strikes like Assombalonga and Martin Braithwaite have to step up even more. These matches have raised the question of Middlesbroughs attacking potency. They may have scored in most games this season but their record of 14 goals scored after 12 matches is the joint-worst in the top-ten. In the top scorers chart, the team does not have a single representative, with striker Britt Assombalonga coming in at 23rd with four goals and no assists.

Goal Margins

In all of Sheffield Wednesdays home games so far this season, both teams have scored. Despite this, Wednesday are one of the most in-form teams in the division at the moment and have proven they can do damage against the best sides, so backing both teams to score looks to be a smart bet. Whilst Middlesbrough may be lacking in confidence, they still have the quality to get a goal and will make it very difficult for Wednesday to get one. Indeed, we think Middlesbrough can score in this match, at the very least.

Winger Adam Reach had also scored a screamer in the game prior to that against Leeds, which once more ended a home draw. In the match before the Bristol City encounter, Wednesday were held to a 2-2 home draw against West Brom, who scored two late goals to snatch victory away from the hosts, after a beauty from Adam Reach and a goal for Fernando Forestieri had put the Owls in front. Indeed, prior to the Leeds match, Wednesday had secured an impressive 2-1 away victory at Aston Villa to spark this run. Indeed, the match against Bristol was the fourth unbeaten in a row for Sheffield Wednesday, against a succession of top teams in the division.

A close encounter is on the horizon and seeing that both sides are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Fridays derby, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The Owls proved their worth in the triumph over the Robins, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Championship derby against Middlesbrough. Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to retain their spot in top six with a win over Middlesbrough at their Hillsborough Stadium. The Boro, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Nottingham Forest on Matchday 12 and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Sheffield Wednesday clash. It has to be noted that the two sides shared the spoils in their last meeting in the Championship. Sheffield Wednesday are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and they head into Fridays football game following a 2-1 win at Bristol City.

How we calculate our stats

There are only four points between the two, with Boro coming here with a game in hand. However, theyre going up against a fellow top five rivals in this clash. They could easily slip into second with some good form, having won at West Brom in their last league trip. The hosts have been in fine form in recent times, theyve got a decent winning streak going at their own ground.

He now has 86 league goals since rejoining the Blades in 2015, and hes firing them to glory. While the visitors have firepower coming into this game, the hosts can boast the leagues top scorer. With 22 goals this season, hes a potent threat. The last three games have seen Sharp score six times in total, and hes a clinical finisher when given the chance. We expect him to grab a goal in this encounter, so were backing Sharp to score any time on top of our BTTS pick.

They could not take their chances in the away match at Hull, resulting in a 1-1 draw against a team in the relegation zone, whilst were held to a goalless draw at home to Swansea. Although Middlesbrough beat Ipswich comfortably in their prior game, a 2-0 away win typical of their performances this season, manager Tony Pulis will have been more concerned in the recent games against Hull and Swansea.

However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2).
