Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

Bottom half outfit Preston North End entertain second placed Middlesbrough as the betting tips continue in the Championship on Tuesday night.

Preston will come into this match full of confidence following their 4-1 romp over Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers on Saturday which extended the hosts unbeaten run to eight matches in the Championship.

Preston had previously captured all three points with a 1-0 win at Bristol City so they’ll be looking for a third win on the trot against Middlesbrough. Alex Neil’s side have lifted themselves up into 16th place thanks to this improved run of results while their home record now stands at a more respectable looking  4-3-2  22/15.

In addition, Preston have won three of their last four at Deepdale with wins against Wigan Athletic 4-0, Brentford 4-3 and Blackburn Rovers 4-1. Midfield trio Browne (5 goals), Gallagher and Barkhuizen (4 goals apiece) along with forward Robinson (9 goals) provide the hosts with plenty of firepower.

Onto Middlesbrough and Tony Pulis’s side also secured all three points on Saturday with a valuable 2-1 win away at Brentford which extended the visitors’ unbeaten run to six matches overall as they look to hold onto a top two position in the Championship.

Middlesbrough will also be looking to record a third win on the trot here as they’d previously disposed of Wigan Athletic 2-0 at home at the Riverside Stadium, and with a solid away record of  4-4-1  11/6 behind them, they’ll fancy their chances of getting something at Preston on Tuesday night.

They too have won three of their last four on the road with wins at Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday and the aforementioned Brentford, while forwards Assombalonga (5 goals) and Braithwaite (3 goals) are the main threats up front, fed by creative winger Stewart Downing.

The betting tips suggest this’ll be a close encounter so both teams to score looks a reasonable bet.
