Middlesbrough 11/10 to beat Ipswich in Tuesdays Championship clash
Market: Middlesbrough win
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the gap at the top of the Championship table, Middlesbrough will travel to Portman Road on Tuesday night to face an Ipswich side who have endured a tricky start to the new campaign.
Starting with the hosts, although many thought a change of manager would help Ipswich mount a top half push, it has been a tough start for the Blues. In their opening 10 Championship matches, they are yet to record a win having drawn six and losing four. Scoring eight and conceding 14 in return, they also hold the worst attacking record in the division. With a points tally of six out of a possible 30, Ipswich currently find themselves in the relegation zone. As for their form at home, the hosts have now remarkably only won one match in East Anglia in 2018.
As for the visitors, tipped by many in the race for automatic promotion, it has been a solid start for Middlesbrough. In their opening 10 games the Reds have won five, drawn four and only lost once, scoring 12 and conceding four, they hold the best defensive record in the Championship. With a points tally of 19, a win on Tuesday could see them leapfrog up to top of the table. As for their recent form, Middlesbrough have now only lost one of their last nine competitive matches away from the Riverside.
