Premier League

Matchweek 16

Confirming all sports betting predictions Middlesbrough don’t demonstrate anything special after their return to the England’s top league. Having played 15 games the Boro have 15 points and sit on the 16th position in the Premier League standings. So as it was predicted by betting experts Karanka’s side will participate in a relegation battle, though they have got some good results in the clashes with England’s top teams. For example, the Smoggles managed to draw with Arsenal (0-0), Manchester City (1-1) and Leicester (2-2).

At the beginning of the season Liverpool have exceeded betting experts’ expectations. The Reds have made a perfect start as they got 9 victories, 3 draws and only 1 defeat in the first 13 matches. However, the last two games appeared to be quite difficult for the Klopp’s side, though they were considered to be a favorite by betting markets. Firstly, Liverpool lost a 2-goal lead with Bournemouth (3-4) and then drew with West Ham (2-2). So due to these setbacks the Reds made way for Chelsea and Arsenal and now sit on the third place in the Premier League table.

Before choosing a bet, it’s worth keeping in mind that Liverpool have a little slump in the results at this moment. It’s especially important because Middlesbrough are able to make a stand at the Riverside Stadium. The betting experts remind that Karanka’s team haven’t lost with more than 1-goal margin at home. So according to sports betting experts even Liverpool’s effective attacking line will have troubles with breaking Boro’s well-drilled defense.      

The bookmakers give their preference to the away team: Middlesbrough – 6,10, Draw – 4,25, Liverpool – 1,60. Nevertheless, giving the fact that the Reds haven’t won at the Riverside Stadium since 2002, (4 draws and 3 defeats), it won’t be an easy game for them. That’s why it’s recommended to bet on “Asian handicap Middlesbrough +1” (1,86). Besides, the last 7 matches at the Riverside were not rich on goals at all, so it’s advisable to look closely to the bet “Total Goals under 2,75” (1,80). There is also a good option “Liverpool or Draw and Total Goals under 3,5” (1,69).
