Middlesbrough have been very solid on the road since dropping down to the Championship and can pick up another valuable three points at Leeds on Sunday.

The hosts may be low on self-belief after losing six of their last seven Championship fixtures, slipping down from top spot to 10th in the table.

A tight tussle is on the cards, but we like 8/5 for an away win for our Leeds vs Middlesbrough betting predictions.

A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds

Leeds were flying high earlier in the season following five wins and two draws from their first seven games, but the mood at Elland Road was less optimistic prior to the international break.

Having gone down at home to Sheffield United and Derby, Thomas Christiansen’s side fell to a third straight Championship defeat when beaten 3-1 at Brentford.

The manager hinted at a dip in confidence when commenting: “In this league, when you make individual mistakes, we get punished.

“We had several opportunities to score but when you’re in this negative situation, then it’s more that our chances go out than in.”

United have lost by a one-goal margin in their last three home matches and 31/10 for that to happen again appeals from the Leeds vs Middlesbrough odds.

A Look At Middlesbrough’s Betting Odds

It hasn’t all been plain sailing for Middlesbrough back down at this level but they followed up away wins at Reading and Hull with a 1-0 derby defeat of Sunderland on home turf.

“Derbies aren’t the prettiest games a lot of the time but the main thing is you win,” declared Garry Monk, who will now be fired up for this return to his former club.

Teenager Marcus Tavernier produced a neat finish to settle the game against the Black Cats, while £15million striker Britt Assombalonga had struck in the two previous victories.

Assombalonga now has eight goals to his name in this division and could provide the extra class needed to edge out Leeds in a tense battle.

We’re completing our Leeds vs Middlesbrough betting tips by taking 9/1 for United to suffer a third straight 2-1 home loss.
