Tuesday’s Championship tips: Boro and Swansea feature in this double header

| 02.04.2019

Wolves and Manchester United may be in action tonight, but there’s a significant pair of matches taking place in the Championship too.

Middlesbrough and Bristol City lock horns as the second-tier’s play-off race hots up.

Elsewhere, Brentford travel to Swansea with an outside chance of a late surge to the top six.

Don’t go anywhere as we have a preview and odds of both Championship clashes.

Middlesbrough v Bristol City

The battle for promotion continues at the Riverside tonight and Tony Pulis will be desperate for the home side to return to winning ways.

Boro go into this one after four-straight defeats after the 1-0 reverse against Norwich City last weekend.

They are 6/5 to win and shoot back into the top-six. But they take on a Bristol City side that’ve just beaten high-flying Sheffield United.

Both of these sides have bagged the most points on the road this season. It’s 5/2 for an away win here with a draw that would suit neither club at 21/10.

Pulis may well shuffle the pack after his sides dismal run and you can find Jordan Hugill at 4/1 to open the scoring.

Britt Assombalonga is 15/8 anytime, while the Robins most likely scorer is striker Famara Diedhiou at 5/2.

A lot is riding on this one tonight, which could see a high-scoring affair. Both teams to notch is Evens with Bristol City on the Double chance at 4/6.

Swansea v Brentford

The Swans are going for a hat-trick of victories over Brentford and are 29/20 to beat a team who’ve just won twice in 19 matches.

Brentford are marooned in mid-table just three points above today’s opponents with just a glimmer of a play-off chance.

Thomas Frank’s men play a very similar passing game to Swansea which could see an attractive encounter.

There have been a raft of goals in both the league and FA Cup games this season. You can get Over 4.5 Goals in the game at 7/2 and Over 3.5 at 6/4.

Neal Maupay has hit 20 goals for Brentford so far, the 22-year-old is 7/2 to open the scoring and the same price to bag last.

Swansea hit-man Oliver McBurnie is 13/10 anytime, his team-mate Bersant Celina is at 23/10 to hit the onion bag.

In the match betting the Bees are 17/10 to win on the road and the draw is 5/2.
