Betting tips Middlesbrough vs. Preston North End

Lilywhites to make it six road wins on the spin

Preston are unbeaten in 10 league games, the longest ongoing run in the Championship and that should be expected to continue at the Riverside.

Super whites on the charge

Preston have found a new lease of life this season under Alex Neil despite a horrendous start to the campaign. The former Norwich boss has turned the tables on the form book that saw the Lancashire outfit win only once in their opening eleven games.

That seems a distant memory now with the Lilywhites on fire in the league and a trip to the Riverside to face 5th place Middlesbrough will not faze them one bit. Wins in each of their last five away games show that Preston do not suffer from travel sickness and, in fact, relish their trips on the road.

Alan Browne has been a key man in the midfield, scoring in three of those victories away from home and Boro will need to watch him carefully.

Home discomforts

Middlesbrough have really made hard work of their recent home matches taking just 15 points in from their last 13 league games at the Riverside.

This poor showing has left the fans disgruntled and a play-off place that once seemed so assured now looking in real doubt.

With the natives restless and the visitors bang in form this could be the perfect time for Alex Neil’s side to rock up in the North East.

Ignore the history books

If history dictates anything it is that all dynasties come to an end and Middlesbrough’s current record against Preston has to give at some point.

The Lilywhites have not beaten Boro in the league since 1972, in fact Middlesbrough are currently unbeaten in their last 13 meetings with the Lancashire outfit in all competitions but now is as good a time as any to end that run.

Alex Neil’s side will be brimming with confidence off the back of a victory over Blackburn at the weekend and can now pull themselves within four points of their host with a win here.

If Preston can come flying out of the blocks they can put the home side under real pressure making the home crowd restless – a perfect cauldron for another away victory.

Betting tip

Given that Middlesbrough seem so out of sorts on home soil and Preston are bang the opposite there could be some real value to be had here.

That’s why going for a Preston win at odds of 3/1 looks so appetising and should be gobbled up quick time.
