Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

Fourth placed Middlesbrough take on bottom half outfit Wigan Athletic as the betting tips continue at the Riverside Stadium in Saturday’s instalment of the Championship.

Tony Pulis’s side still remain in the frame for a challenge at automatic promotion as they trail Championship leaders, Leeds United, by just two points ahead of the main action this weekend. A run of four matches unbeaten have seen Middlesbrough consolidate their ambitions of at least a play-off spot under the former Stoke City and West Brom manager.

A 2-1 win away at Sheffield Wednesday was a great result for Boro but the north-east outfit have been slowed down in recent times by three stalemates on the trot as they’ve shared the points with Rotherham United, Derby County and Stoke City respectively.

Nevertheless, Middlesbrough possess a good home record of  4-3-1 8/3 which includes six clean sheets from these eight home matches. Forwards Assombalonga (5 goals) and Braithwaite (3 goals) have done the damage so far.

Wigan Athletic currently occupy a lowly 16th place on the Championship league ladder but had it not been for a solid record at their DW Stadium, The Latics would be languishing nearer the relegation zone.

Wigan have lost just once so far on home turf, but having lost 7 of their 8 away matches to date with a poor record of  1-0-7  8/17, the visitors look set for more troubles this Saturday afternoon away at Middlesbrough.

Following a 3-0 win away at Stoke City, the rot appears to have well and truly set in for Wigan who have subsequently lost their last six on the trot on their travels. In addition, they also possess the worst defensive record away from home in the division.
