Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro pick up first win?

Middlesbrough have been tipped to have a fine season under Chris Wilder, but they have made a slow start to the new campaign. On the opening weekend, Boro drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion at the Riverside.

The North Yorkshire outfit then lost 3-2 to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on matchday two. They found themselves 3-0 down after just 38 minutes in London. Boro were beaten again in midweek, with EFL League One side Barnsley leaving the Riverside with a 1-0 EFL Cup victory.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2108 GMT, Friday 12 August)

Middlesbrough will be desperate to pick up their first win of the season this Sunday after a sluggish start, but this will not be an easy test. Nevertheless, they are the favourites at 29/20.

Sheffield United Preview – Will the Blades bounce back from midweek defeat?

Sheffield United kicked off their Championship campaign with a narrow loss to Watford. The Blades did not do enough at Vicarage Road, and the 1-0 Hornets win was just about the right result.

United were much more like their usual selves on matchday two, beating Millwall 2-0 at Bramall Lane. Iliman Ndiaye scored early to give the Blades the lead, and Sander Berge doubled their advantage shortly after.

Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

These two teams were in the promotion hunt last season. Sheffield United finished in the play-offs, while Middlesbrough ended up in seventh and narrowly missed out. Both will be gunning for a top-six finish at the very least this term.

When they last met at the Riverside Stadium, goals from Duncan Watmore and Paddy McNair claimed a 2-0 win for Boro. However, Sheffield United got revenge at Bramall Lane six months later, with Sander Berge, Billy Sharp, Jack Robinson and Morgan Gibbs-White on target in a 4-1 home romp.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough have yet to win this season
  • Sheffield United have lost both away games 1-0
  • The Blades thumped Boro 4-1 when they last met


With the pair evenly matched on paper, this is a difficult match to predict. Middlesbrough may be the slight favourites, but the smart money could be on United. It will no doubt be close, so back the away side to win by one goal at the top price of 10/3.

Sander Berge netted in the 2-0 win over Millwall recently and scored when these two teams last met. The Norwegian is available at 5/1 to notch anytime in this one.
