Middlesbrough 6/5 to beat Hull City in Thursday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Middlesbrough win

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365

Hoping to build off of what was an eye-catching display over the weekend, Middlesbrough will make the trip to a struggling KCOM Stadium on Thursday evening.

Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead late on and having to settle for a point in what was a six-goal thriller at St. Andrew’s over the weekend, Hull find themselves in the midst of a real struggle. Still failing to find a route out of the drop zone and the mood around the KCOM at a continued low, the Tigers have remarkably failed to win any of their last 15 appearances across all competitions, a run that stems back to January 4th. Appearing to be freefalling towards a League One return this summer, Hull have also gained a worrying reputation for their issues on home soil. Including what was a dreadful display in a 4-0 hammering against title contenders Leeds prior to the break, Thursday’s hosts have managed to collect just a single point over their last eight Championship matchups at the KCOM.

As for the visitors, bringing in former Cardiff boss Neil Warnock last week, Middlesbrough couldn’t have got off to a brighter start over the weekend. Picking up a deserved 2-0 win away at Stoke on Saturday, the Reds have managed to scrape a two-point buffer over the drop zone. Simply hoping that Warnock can extend on their Championship status this summer, the North East outfit have landed back-to-back wins on the road and should be boosted by their eye-catching record against a struggling Hull. Warnock’s new squad are unbeaten in each of their previous five meetings against the Tigers and there is no doubt that Middlesbrough should find the mood in their squad on the rise. Glad to see leading marksman Ashley Fletcher grab his first post-lockdown strike over the weekend, we’re backing an away win for the Reds in midweek.
