Middlesbrough and Wolves both to score 10/11 in Fridays Championship battle

Competition: Championship

Market: Middlesborough and Wolves both to score

Odds: 10/11 @ Bet365

Two sides that both could be facing each other in the Premier League next season, while Middlesbrough will be looking to shore up their playoff ambitions, runaway Championship leaders Wolves will look to move one step closer to automatic promotion.

For Middlesbrough, although they haven’t quite lived up to their preseason billing as automatic promotion candidates, Boro have shown some drastic improvements under former West Brom boss Tony Pulis. Now sat sixth in the table and in possession of that all-important final playoff position, the North West side have continued to show their recent fine run of form. While they may only sit a single point above dropping out the top six, Pulis’ side are now unbeaten in their last seven appearances, scoring 15 times in those matchups. Their recent form can also be put down to the success of former Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford, the 24-year-old has eight goals in his last six matches in the Championship.

As for Nuno Espírito Santo’s the former Valencia boss has done an incredible job of transforming Wolves into the Championship’s most feared sides. Leading the pack since the turn of the New Year, the Wanderers now hold a six-point advantage over Cardiff in second and also boast the best-attacking record in the league this year. Most recently coming off the back of a 3-1 win over Burton before the international break, while Wolves have only lost two of their last 10 Championship outings, Santo’s side have shown signs of struggling on the road, they have now only one of their last four matches away from Molineux. While Premier League football seems almost a formality for the Midlands-based side next year, Wolves have conceded at least once in eight of their last 12 appearances.

Bet: Both teams to score at Middlesbrough vs Wolves 10/11 @ Bet365>>
