Middlesbrough welcome Cardiff City to the Riverside Stadium this Wednesday in a huge EFL Championship fixture for the hosts. Boro’s play-off hopes are hanging by a thread, but three points against the Bluebirds would put them two points behind sixth-place Sheffield United with two games to play. Cardiff are an unpredictable outfit under Steve Morison these days, but Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough are the odds-on favourites with the bookies. Take a look at the latest odds and best tips.

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro get back on track?

Chris Wilder has done a great job at Middlesbrough, turning the club into promotion hopefuls after taking over from Neil Warnock in November. They have shot up the table after a hatful of wins, and three points on Wednesday would take them to within two points of sixth.

Middlesbrough have hit a rough patch of form at just the wrong time, however. Since thumping Peterborough United 4-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium in early April, Boro have lost three and drawn two of five. They have really struggled at home of late, losing four league and cup matches on the bounce at the Riverside Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1238 GMT, Tuesday 26 April)

This is a must-win game for Middlesbrough as they hunt down a top-six place. The bookies are offering 3/5 for a home win.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds cause an upset?

Cardiff City were hovering just above the drop zone when Steve Morison took over, but an excellent run of four wins from five in January and February really alleviated the pressure. The Bluebirds are 15 points above the relegation zone and will be a Championship club next season.

Cardiff have been in poor form of late, though, losing four of the last five. Since a 2-1 win at Reading in early April, the Welsh side have suffered three straight defeats, losing to Hull City, Luton Town and Sheffield United.
