Reason For Middlesbrough vs Huddersfield Betting Tips

  • Both sides sit in the bottom six ahead of this clash.
  • Boro have won 6 of their last 7 home Boxing Day games.
  • Huddersfield have failed to win in 14 of their last 15 clashes with Boro.
  • Middlesbrough have won their last 3 home games.

Riverside Run

Neither of these two seems like leading relegation candidates in the summer, but they meet in a vital clash at the bottom of the table on Boxing Day. These two sides are sitting in the bottom six in the Championship ahead of this clash, but can either of the two move further from the drop with three points?

Middlesbrough are going in the right direction, having pulled away from danger with a fine run of form at their own ground. They are yet to win away from home this term, but they’ve boosted their record at the Riverside. Will they produce another present for the home faithful by seeing off Huddersfield this week?

Home Comforts for Boro

Middlesbrough have won six of their last seven home league games on Boxing Day, while this fixture should suit them. They head into the clash with three straight home victories behind them, while they have a brilliant record in clashes with the Terriers. Huddersfield have won one of their last 15 games against Middlesbrough in all competitions (W1 D3 L11), a 2-1 win in March 2013.

That includes their 0-0 draw earlier in the season, but we expect more from Boro here. After all, the hosts have claimed 79% of their points at their own ground this season. They should look to add to that here, especially having kicked off a recent strong run of form.

Hosts Punishing Their Rivals

Not only have the hosts kicked off a strong run, but they’ve started to gain some consistency in their home results. So far, Boro have beaten the lower ranking sides in the Championship. They have seen off each of the bottom three here, along with 16th placed Reading and 18th placed Charlton. Sitting in the bottom six, Huddersfield could be next.

Middlesbrough have won six of their last seven home games against Huddersfield Town in all competitions, drawing the other in October 2013. Given their great run against them and the hosts’ recent record, we think they will see off a Huddersfield side who have already been beaten 10 times so far this season.

Middlesbrough have won by a single goal in each of their last three home matches, while each of their home successes this season has seen them edge it by a one-goal margin. Boro are fresh from a 2-1 win over Stoke, while Huddersfield have found the back of the net in each of their last 12 away league games since a 0-5 defeat to Liverpool in April. They last had a longer such scoring streak in August 2011 (15 games). With that form in mind, a 1-1 home win is our tip for this clash.
