Middlesbrough’s chances of an immediate return to the Championship are looking increasingly likely following the 4-2 defeat at Hull on Tuesday which left them seven points from safety.
Burnley have still to win away this season but their 10th home victory of the season in Tuesday’s 1-0 win against Stoke has given them a great chance of staying up.
With Boro winless at the Riverside in their last five, the first of our Middlesbrough vs Burnley betting tips is for the game to end up a draw at 21/10.
A Look At Middlesbrough’s Betting Odds
Middlesbrough must improve on their record of just four wins all season if they are to beat the drop and they will have highlighted this match as one where three points are essential.
With five of the last meetings between the sides containing just one goal it is tempting to opt for a goalless draw but we’re at the business end of the season when teams start to come out of their shells as Boro proved by scoring their first away goals in more than three months in midweek.
The Clarets have scored in five of their last six away matches while Boro have hit the net in 64% of their games at the Riverside, so we’ll take a chance on the Middlesbrough vs Burnley betting odds of 15/4 for the match to end up as a score draw.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley may still be searching for their first away win of the season but they’ve gone close recently by taking the lead at Liverpool and Swansea before going on to lose.
In between, they had a couple of draws against Hull and Sunderland so they will fancy their chances of breaking their duck on Teesside.
Sean Dyche’s men have scored exactly one goal in six of their last eight away matches which is available at 31/20 while a 1-1 draw looks nice at 5/1.
