Watching Boro’ win is just about as good as it gets on a Saturday afternoon in our eyes. However, watching the boys land the three points AND a winning bet at the same time is perhaps the one thing that can top that (at least that we’re prepared to talk about in public!). If you want to bet on Middlesbrough, there are loads of options available. Some people never bet on their own side but, for us, it’s all part and parcel of the experience of going to the Riverside. How seriously you take your betting is up to you.


Betting on Middlesbrough


Some people like to study the stats and the form all week, spending hours assessing their bets and the value of the odds. Personally, our bets are very simple. £10 on the boys to win, and both the Geordies and the Mackems to lose in one, single, beautiful, perfect-weekend- making treble! We occasionally throw in the odd correct score bet and sometimes the first scorer too. It’s hard to beat checking the scores and realising our perfect treble has come in but if there is one thing that does, it’s a late winner in front of the Holgate that lands our 2-1 correct score bet! Adam Forshaw, thank you!

Of course there are loads and loads of different betting options available. Whether you are new to football betting or have been doing it since the day you turned 18, you’re sure to find a type of bet that appeals to you. Betting on over 2.5 goals is a good option for those looking for a bit of fun and who fancy there will be plenty of goals in the game. Now the Karanka days are gone, that seems to happen a lot more often!

Betting on both teams to score (BTTS) is also a great choice. As said, nominating the full time correct score is also a great bet and this provides decent odds usually too, meaning you can win big from a small bet. Betting on who will score the first goal – or the last goal – can be equally rewarding, especially if you pick a defender and he duly finds the net. Longer odds bets like these are great if you just want a bit of extra interest in the game because you don’t have to risk too much but still stand to land the sort of win that can pay for your Saturday night.

Whatever you want to bet on you can give yourself a bit of extra betting power by qualifying for a free bet or using an enhanced odds offer. Loads of sites offer these football betting offers, but we have found footballbettinghub.com to be one of the best. As well as lists of offers for existing customers they also highlight the free bets and offers that are available to new customers.

A lot of the enhanced odds deals tend to focus on the Premier League but occasionally there are some for the Championship too. Mind you, next season we won’t have to worry about that will we?!
