The Betpal Football Bet of the Day comes from the Championship where Middlesbrough face Sheffield Wednesday. It has been a hectic few days in England’s second tier, who has the stamina to win this one?
Match: Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday
Bet of the Day: Middlesbrough Win
Best Odds: 1.92 at Pinnacle
These two sides face their third game in seven days, but the hosts still look a decent price to maintain their strong form. Tony Mowbray has guided Boro to 2nd in the table and they have won six of their last eight contests, as well as dumping Premier League neighbours Sunderland out of the Carling Cup. Last season they struggled to win at home, but this term they have registered five wins from their seven games at the Riverside, and look a good bet to get another one on Friday. Sheffield Wednesday have not been great travellers, tasting defeat four times from their seven games on the road. They have also lost every game they have played against a ‘top ten’ side (six games). The hectic fixture schedule is the only question mark over the punt – Boro have done more travelling than their opponents in recent days, but even so, at a shade under even money, they look a solid value call.
