Middlesbrough vs Watford match preview

Middlesbrough have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games and Watford have won all of their last 5. These sides met on the opening day of the season and Watford won 1-0 with 6 corners for each team and 1 Watford yellow card.

Borough have scored in 69.23% of their games this season and have conceded in 66.66%. Watford have scored in 74.35% of their league games and conceded in 51.28%. Goals is a tricky market here as the season stats suggest it’s a market to be very careful of as only 53.84% of Watford league games have had 2 or more goals, but both sides have been in pretty good scoring form lately. Middlesbrough have scored in 11 if their last 12 league games and they scored an average of 1.41 goals per game in those games. Borough have conceded in 16 of their last 20 league games and they conceded an average of 1.40 goals per game in those games. Watford have scored in 10 of their last 11 league games and they scored an average of 2.27 goals per game in those games. Watford have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 12 league games.

The really interesting stats on goals though is that whilst the Watford defensive record is what makes goals difficult to back, Watford have conceded in all of their last 4 away league games. Watford have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 6 league games but all of those clean sheets were at home. Playing a Borough side who have scored 5 goals in their last 2 home games, we feel there is a very good chance both teams score and the games has at least a couple of goals. 

Watford have taken 3 or more corners in 92.39% of their league games this season and Borough in 84.61%. Watford have taken at least 3 corners in all of their last 20 league games and they have taken an average of 6.25 corners per game in those last 20 games. Borough have taken 3 or more corners in 16 of their last 19 league games and they have taken an average of 6.21 corners per game in those last 19 games. Both sides also regularly see spikes where they take 6/7 corners or more and both these sides have hit double digit corners in a game on their own multiple times this season. So we think its highly likely both teams take at least 3 and the game will see at least 8/9 corners and could push into double figures. 

Borough have been given at least 1 card in 79.48% of their league games this season and Watford have been given at least 1 card in 84.61% of theirs. Borough average 1.46 yellow cards per game this season and Watford average 1.76 yellow cards per game. Watford have been given at least 1 card in 19 of their last 22 league games and they were given an average of 2.04 yellow cards per game in those games. Borough have been given at least 1 card in 23 of their last 26 league games and they were given an average of 1.57 yellow cards per game. The type of game this promises to be we also feel it helps us with any cards bets. Middlesbrough need a win to avoid losing touch with the play offs and Watford are desperate to keep the buffer they have built up between themselves in 2nd and the chasing play off pack. So we feel it’s highly likely both teams pick up at least 1 card.

The possible bets on this game are

Both teams to score

Over 1.5 goals

3+ corners each team

8/9+ match corners

10+ booking points each team

Blackburn vs Bournemouth match preview

Blackburn have drawn 3 and lost 2 of their last 5 league games and Bournemouth have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 5. Bournemouth won 3-2 when these sides met on the opening day of this season in a game that had 5 Bournemouth corners, 2 Blackburn corners and 2 Bournemouth yellow cards.

Blackburn have scored in 69.23% of their league games this season and conceded in 71.79% of their league games. Bournemouth have scored in 81.57% and conceded in 63.15%. Blackburn have now failed to score in 3 of their last 4 league games and have only conceded an average of 0.66 goals per game in their last 6 league games. Bournemouth have scored in all of their last 9 league games and they scored an average of 1.66 goals per game in those 9 games. Bournemouth are firmly in the playoff picture and with a win would move level on points with 5th placed Barnsley. Blackburn are 7 points clear of the drop zone though will be wary of sleep walking into a relegation dog fight as a few of the teams below them have games in hand. Goals isn’t a market to bet on here are Blackburn can’t be relied on to score but are also no mugs defensively and despite conceding in 12 of their last 17 league games, they only conceded an average of 0.94 goals per game in those games, so rarely get blown away by teams. We fancy Bournemouth to win and feel there is a good chance that they could win by a 1-0 or 2-0 score line.

Bournemouth have taken 3 or more corners in 94.73% of their league games played this season and Blackburn have in 79.48% of theirs. Bournemouth have taken 3 or more corners in all of their last 10 league games and they took an average of 5.20 corners per game in those last 10 games. Blackburn have taken exactly 2 corners in 4 of their last 11 league games, though 3 of those games were away from home and Blackburn have taken 5 or more corners in 5 of their last 6 home league games and Blackburn do average 4.69 corners per game this season so have been pretty consistent. So it looks highly likely both teams take at least 3 corners. 

Blackburn have been given no cards in 2 of their last 3 league games and have only been given 1+ card in 71.79% of their league games this season which isn’t strong enough for us to see them as booking bankers. Bournemouth have been better and more consistent but they were given no cards in their last away league game so we are happy to leave cards here.

The possible bets on this game are

Bournemouth to win 1-0 or 2-0

3+ corners each team

Coventry vs Bristol City match preview

Both sides have lost 3, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games. Bristol City won 2-1 in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season and the game had 5 Bristol City corners, 7 Coventry corners, 2 Bristol City yellow card and 1 Coventry yellow card. 

We can keep this write up very short. The percentages are too low across the board for us to recommend any bet with confidence. Both sides have failed to score in their last 3 league games and are out of form.

So with nothing to go at this is a game where we would advise you to not have a bet.

Luton vs Barnsley match preview

Luton have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games and Barnsley have drawn 2, won 2 and lost 1 of their last 5. The reverse fixture was won 1-0 by Luton on the opening day and the game had 5 Barnsley corners, 6 Luton corners, 1 Barnsley yellow card and 3 Luton yellow cards.

The season stats don’t offer us much. Barnsley have scored in 11 of their last 12 league games and they scored an average of 1.75 goals per game in those games. Luton have conceded in 7 of their last 10 league games and they conceded an average of 1.40 goals per game in those games. Goals is not a market we are going to play here as Barnsley have failed to score in 3 of their last 6 away games and Luton are struggling for goals at the moment.

Luton have seen a drop in corners lately and average just 3.44 corners per game in their last 9 league games. Barnsley have seen their corners average go the other way and they average 6.37 corners per game in their last 8 league games. So, on current form we feel it’s highly likely Barnsley will take more corners.

Luton have  even given no cards in 3 of their last 5 league games and their opponents have been given no cards in 3 of the last 6 Luton league games. Barnsley have been on the high end if booking points in recent games but the season stats don’t suggest they can be relied on heavily. Given the Barnsley season stats and Luton games having a lack of cards lately, we are happy to leave cards here. 

There is 1 possible bet on this game and that is Barnsley to take the most corners.

Nottingham Forest vs QPR match preview

Forest have drawn 2,lost 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and QPR have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games played. The reverse fixture was a 2-0 win for QPR with 4 QPR corners, 2 Forest corners, 1 QPR yellow card and 2 Forest yellow cards. 

QPR have scored in 7 of their last 8 league games and they scored an average of 1.50 goals per game in those last 8 league games. Forest have failed to score in 5 of their last 11 league games and they scored an average of just 0.54 goals per game in those 11 games. The season stats don’t suggest goals are a banker and despite QPR being in good form recently in front of goal, Forest have been the opposite. So, there is no play for us on goals. 

Forest have taken 3 or more corners in 84.61% if their league games this season and QPR have taken 3 or more corners in 86.84% of theirs. QPR average 5.33 per game in their last 6league games and Forest average 5 corners per game in their last 18 league games. So there looks to be a very good chance that both teams take at least 3 corners.

There is nothing on cards as QPR’s opponents have been given no cards in any of the last 5 QPR league games and all of those 5 games finished under 30 match booking points. Forest have been given no cards in 5 of their last 12 league games. So cards is an angle to avoid here. 

There is one possible bet in this game and that is 3+ corners each team.

Reading vs Derby match preview

Reading have drawn 3, lost 1 and won 1 of their last t league games and Derby have drawn 2, lost 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games. Reading won the reverse fixture in the opening day 2-0, that game had 6 Derby corners, 2 Reading corners, 3 Derby yellow cards and 2 Reading yellow cards. 

There is nothing for us on goals as although Reading have scored in their last 7 league games they scored exactly 1 goal in 5 of those games and Derby have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 league games, so they can’t be relied on to score and Reading can’t be relied in to score more than 1 goal.

The season stats on corners and cards are both quite weak. With corners it would be no surprise to see both teams take at least 3 but the recent stats are not strong enough for us to ignore the season stats so we won’t be playing corners. Reading have been given no cards in any of their last 4 league games and 4 of the last 5 Derby league games ended with under 3o match booking points.

So there is no recommended bet in this game.

Rotherham vs Wycombe match preview

Wycombe have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Rotherham have  lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5. Rotherham won the meeting between these side son the opening day 1-0 in a game that had 4 Rotherham corners, 3 Wycombe corners and 1 yellow card for each team. 

Both sides are very inconsistent which makes this a tough game to weigh up. Goals and corners are both too risky due to neither side being consistent and that makes the number of goals and corners almost impossible to predict. Neither side can be relied on to score as Rotherham have failed to score in 5 of their last 8 league games and Wycombe have also failed to score in 5 of their last 8 league games.

Both sides regularly take a low number of corners and then may spike in the next game and take 7/8 corners in a single game. So whilst we can’t say there won’t be corners, its too unpredictable for us to put them up as a bet.

Wycombe have been given at least 1 card in 11 of their last 13 league games, averaging 1.76 yellow cards per game in those games. Rotherham have been given at least 1 card in 10 of their last 12, averaging 1.50 yellow card per game in those last 12 games. We won’t be playing bookings though as 3 of the last 7 Wycombe league games went under 30 match booking points and 4 of the last 9 Rotherham league games went under 30 match booking points.

Stoke vs Millwall match preview

Stoke have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games and Millwall have won 3 and lost 2 of their last 5. The sides met on the opening day where it ended 0-0 with 2 Millwall corners, 8 Stoke corners and 1 yellow card for each team. 

We can keep this write up short as the season stats don’t give us any potential strong bets and recent form doesn’t offer much encouragement either. As always it won’t be a surprise to see this game produce enough goals, corners and cards to cover a few bets. Just the stats are not strong enough for us to confidently tip anything.

There are no potential bets in this game.

Swansea vs Preston match preview

Swansea have lost 3, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Preston have lost 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5. Swansea won 1-0 in the reverse fixture on the opening day and that game had 2 Preston corners, 3 Swansea corners and no cards. 

On current form you can’t back goals with confidence. Preston have failed to score either 3 of their last 4 and Swansea have failed to score in all of their last 3 league games.

Preston average just 3.66 corners per game in their last 6 league games and all of the last 3 Preston league games finished with 7 corners or less. 6 of the last 10 Swansea league games finished with 8 corners or less and Swansea have been very inconsistent with corners lately with games where they have just 1 or 2 and then games where they have 8 or even hit double figures on their own. So we can’t say there won’t be corners but we can say that its thought to tip them with full confidence, so we won’t be playing corners either. 

8 of the last 11 Preston league games finished under 30 match booking points and Swansea have been given no cards in any of their last 3 league games.

A game with no standout bet where we can’t tip anything with confidence so there are no potential bets in this game.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Cardiff match preview

Wednesday have lost 3, drawn 1 and win 1 of their last 5 league games and Cardiff have drawn 2, lost 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games. Wednesday won the reverse fixture 2-0 on the opening day in a game that had 6 Wednesday corners, 4 Cardiff corners and 1 Wednesday yellow card.

Wednesday have failed to score in 5 of their last 10 league games and average just 2.60 corners per game in their last 5 league games. Cardiff have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 league games and average just 3.18 corners per game in their last 11 league games. On current form goals and corners are both bets to avoid. 

Cardiff have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 5 league games and they were given an average of 2 yellow cards per game in those last 5 games. Sheffield Wednesday have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 4 league games and they average 2.75 yellow cards per game in those last 4 games. The season stats for bookings are less promising but in current form it looks highly likely both teams pick up at least 1 card, and quite possibly 2 cards each. With also a very good chance the game has at least 3 cards.

The possible bets on this game are

10+ booking points each team

20+ booking points each team

30+ match booking points
