West Brom v Middlesbrough Live Streaming : Boro turning things around?
Middlesbrough head to the Hawthorns looking to make it three wins on the bounce for the first time this season.
A 2-1 win at home to Stoke was followed by a 1-0 smash and grab against Huddersfield on Boxing Day lifting Boro six points clear of the drop zone and in the process relieving the pressure on Jonathon Woodgate.
But on their travels Boro have struggled massively. They’re one of just two teams yet to win away from home in the Championship and will have to be at their very best if they’re to end that unwanted streak.
Callum Dunn, Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman comments:
No team has some more goals than West Brom in the Championship this season. The Baggies have netted 47 goals in 24 goals averaging almost two goals per game. They’re 7/4 to score over 2.5 goals on Sunday.
Charlie Austin is the Baggies leading goal scorer so far this season with eight goals and the striker is expected to lead the line on Sunday. He’s 4/1 to open the scoring and 13/10 to score anytime.
Both teams have scored in each of West Brom’s last five games and it’s 3/4 for both teams to score at the Hawthorns on Sunday. That said, Boro are one of the league’s lowest scorers, West Brom win to nil is 9/5.
West Brom won the reverse fixture earlier this season 1-0 and it’s 15/2. Alternatively Boro were 3-2 winners on their last trip to the Hawthorns and it’s 50/1 for lightening to strike twice.
The Baggies head into the game as 1/2 favourites which looks a solid price considering their unbeaten run, the draw is 13/4 and Boro are 6/1 to pull off an unlikely win.
