9 points Middlesbrough vs watford Over 2.5 goals (UK Football Championship) @1.66 Pinnacle
Middlesbrough take on Watford this week in a top of the table clash and as these 2 teams are amongst the top goal scoreres in the league I think that this game will be high scoring so am going for over 2.5 goals.
Middlesbrough have played 13 home games and have won 10, drawn 1 and lost just 2 games so have been in great form and are currently sat in 4th place in the league. They have managed to score in every home game and in total have scored 28 goals at home and only leicester and Palace have scored more home goals. They have been sharing the goals around this season with 6 players scoring 4 or more goals so far this season so have a lot of players capable of scoring in this match. They have conceded 14 goals and kept 5 clean sheets and this means that their average goals per game rate is 3.25 and 9 of their 13 home matches have been over 2.5 goals.
Watford are in 6th position in the league and away form home they have played 12 matches winning 6, drawing 2 and losing 4 which is the 2nd best away record in the league. They have been scoring very well and in total have scored 27 goals which is by far the most away goals in this league by a long way and they have failed to score just once. Unlike Middlesbrough they have just 2 main goal scorers and they will be expecting Deeney and Vydra to provide their goals in this match. They have not kept a clean sheet whilst playing away from home and in total they have conceded 21 goals which gives them an average goals per game rate of 4 and 10 of their 12 away matches have gone over 2.5 goals.
In summary these are 2 of the highest goal scorers in the league and I fully expect goals to be scored here so am going for over 2.5 goals with high stakes and this is probably my bet of the weekend.
