Middlesbrough to Win
Middlesbrough have won their last three home games and won all three games against the bottom two clubs. Blackpool have lost three of their last five road games and have just three wins in their 14 away games.
Under 3 Goals
Middlesbrough’s 79% of Championship matches produced under 3 goals while the same trend happened in Blackpool’s 86% of away games. As a result, there is an 83% possibility for this bet to succeed. In addition, the last eight h2hs also ended with three or fewer goals.
Correct Score Group Bet 1-0 or 2-0 or 3-0
Playing at the Riverside, Middlesbrough won three times by a score of 1-0 and once by 2-0. Boro also beat Blackpool 3-0 in the opposite fixture this season. On the other side, Blackpool lost by one of these scores nine times in the league since August.
Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Middlesbrough vs Blackpool
A 2-0 win over promotion rivals Watford saw Middlesbrough move third in the table with Michael Carrick’s ninth win from just 13 league games in charge. The Boro boss praised his new signing Man of the Match Cameron Archer whose movement created space for eventual scorers Akpom and Forss.
However, Boro can’t relax in the playoff spots just yet as they have played one more game than most of their chasers. A fifth straight home win is imperative then, but a nine-goal haul across the last four home games shows that Carrick’s attack is looking very sharp.

Blackpool’s miseries continued with a 2-0 away defeat last time out as they now have the Championship’s longest-active winless run of games. In fact, we have to go all the back to the 29th of October to find the Seasiders clinch all three points.
Moreover, being just one point above the bottom of the table placed Wigan, Blackpool can find themselves toppled by Wigan after this round. Obviously, defense is a huge issue for new boss Mick McCarthy with the Seasiders conceding at least a goal in nine of their last ten games.
Middlesbrough vs Blackpool Prediction
There is a great sense of urgency in this match concerning both teams as they are searching for three points for contrasting reasons. Nevertheless, Boro looks sharper at home and highly motivated in recent home games which we think will reflect in another victory in Saturday’s game.
Considering Middlesbrough’s recent scoring rate at home which is 2.25 goals per game in the last four outings, and the fact that Blackpool are conceding an average of 1.5 goals per game on the road, with odds of 1.66 at 1xBet, we predict Boro to score over 1.5 goals.
Middlesbrough’s Chuba Akpom is the Championship’s most prolific attacker at the moment as he leads the top scorers’ chart with 14 goals. The 27-year-old Englishman who has strong finishing abilities is the favorite to find Blackpool’s net again in this match.
Advanced tickets for Saturday's fixture at Middlesbrough go off sale at 4pm on Friday, though pay on the day is available at the Riverside Stadium.
There are also limited spaces remaining on the supporters coach, which departs at 10am.
