Middlesbrough 9/5 to beat Sheffield United in Tuesday nights Championship clash
Market: Middlesbrough to beat Sheffield United
Odds: 9/5 @ Bet365
With the Championship table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s second division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, playoff hopefuls Middlesbrough will travel to Bramall Lane.
For the hosts on Tuesday night, after being promoted from League One last season, the prospect of back to back promotions still remains an outside chance for Sheffield United. After 41 Championship games this season, the Blades have won 18, drawn eight and lost 15, scoring 55 and conceding 48 in return. With a points tally of 62, Sheffield United currently sit ninth in the Championship table and now sit just four points adrift of breaking into the playoff positions. If the Blades are planning on making a late burst into the top-six, then they will need to improve on their recent run of results. Sheffield United are without a win in their last four appearances and have just one win in their last seven, drawing four and losing two.
As for the visitors, after appointing former West Brom boss Tony Pulis in November, Middlesbrough have turned their fortunes around and now find themselves as favorites to occupy one of the lucrative playoff positions. After 41 Championship games this season, Middlesbrough have won 19, drawn nine and lost 13, scoring 58 and conceding 39. With a points tally of 66, Middlesbrough currently occupies sixth spot and sit in the playoff positions. As for their recent run of results, coming off the back of a 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest last weekend, Middlesbrough have lost just one in their last nine, winning five and drawing three. Middlesbrough forward Patrick Bamford also has nine goals in his last nine Championship appearances.
