Our prediction for this Championship match:
Middlesbrough will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Hull City when they take on Peterborough at their Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Boro did well to beat Sheffield United in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Matchday 12. All Onel Hernandez, Anfernee Dijksteel, and Marcus Browne are sidelined with injuries for the hosts.
The Posh, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Bristol City. Since the newcomers are on a five-game losing run on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Riverside Stadium Middlesbrough crushed Peterborough 5-0 in the FA Cup. All Jack Marriott, Ricky-Jade Jones, and Mark Beevers are out of contention through injuries for the visiting side.
