Recommended bets

Middlesbrough to win and under 2.5 goals (12/5)

Middlesbrough are having a tough run of form and their playoff hopes are starting to fade.

However, Wednesday presents a fantastic opportunity for Boro to return to winning ways against a poor Cardiff City side.

The South Wales club have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.

Duncan Watmore to score anytime (7/4)

Wilder’s side have struggled for goals recently, but Watmore is likely to be Boro’s best source of goals.

The forward has been one of Wilder’s preferred options up top and he is likely to be picked again on Wednesday.

He netted in their previous win which was a 5-1 win over Peterborough.
