Sitting nicely in third, without a loss all season long, Middlesbrough could climb to the Championship summit with a victory against Leicester and there are plenty of pointers towards Tony Mowbray’s side picking up three points this evening.
With Marvin Emnes having scored five already this season and Boro’s defence being the meanest in the Championship, the Teessiders are 5/4 favourites to secure victory in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Meanwhile, Leicester are priced at 41/20 to steal the win.
However, while Boro might not have lost yet, they have been poor at home. With three draws in their four home games, they have been less than impressive when it comes to entertaining the home crowd.
Coincidently, Leicester have also drawn three out of their four away games and with the last two meetings between the teams also ending in a draw, odds of 11/5 on the match to finish without a winner look tempting.
A successful £25 free bet on the game to end in a draw would return £80, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Those looking for bigger returns could consider backing a low-scoring draw based on both sides’ defensive solidity.
Boro have conceded just five goals in eight matches, while Leicester have let in only three in four on the road.
With this in mind, scorelines of 0-0 and 1-1 are available at odds of 33/2 and 21/4 respectively.
A safer bet would be on there to fewer than three goals in the match at evens.
