Middlesbrough go into their game against Cardiff at the Riverside just one position above their Welsh opponents in seventh, with both sides in striking distance of the play-offs.
Indeed, Boro are only missing out on a spot in the top six on goal difference and the Bluebirds are just two points behind.
However, their promotion bids have stuttered of late, with both sides drawing their last four games.
The home side are priced at 13/10 to win the match in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, with Cardiff at 2/1.
However, the draw – priced at 11/5 – certainly looks the best bet given the two sides’ recent form.
72 per cent of the goals conceded by Cardiff have been let in after the break.
Away from the final result, a good bet to consider is on Middlesbrough to score more goals after half time than in the first half at 8/5.
Tony Mowbray’s men have scored 31 of their 47 goals in the second half, and the bet also looks promising given 72 per cent of the goals conceded by Cardiff have been let in after the break.
Punters who use their free £25 bet on this outcome could win themselves £65 if the tip proves successful, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Meanwhile, Cardiff could be worth backing to grab the first goal at 6/5. Of the 57 goals they have scored this season, 23 have been the first of the match.
Kenny Miller is factor here – he alone has scored the first goal seven times this season.
But whatever time the goals come, the draw remains the most likely outcome.
Recommended bet: Middlesbrough to draw with Cardiff @ 11/5
Recommended bet (take two): Middlesbrough to score more goals in second half @ 8/5
