Cardiff odds: 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%

Feel free to visit our football betting tips today page for the latest picks and predictions across the board and here are a couple of suggestions for this particular Middlesbrough vs Cardiff game: Cardiff to Win with BTTS could get you odds of 8/1 (8.00) – 12.5% and looking for an Over 1.5 First-Half Goals, the price is set at 13/8 (2.63) – 38.1%.

Match Preview, Team Information, and Middlesbrough vs Cardiff Lineups

Middlesbrough

They were without he win for seven games in a row to open the season, but after scoring two straight victories, Middlesbrough can breathe a bit easier. Anfernee Dijksteel is injured at the moment.

Potential lineup: Dieng, McNair, O'Brien, Fry, van den Berg, Howson, Hackney, McGree, Crooks, Jones, Coburn.

Cardiff

The Welsh side won its fourth match in a row over the weekend and the team can't wait to try and make it five on Tuesday when they travel to Middlesbrough. Josh Bowler, Callum O'Dowda, and Aaron Ramsey are missing through injury.

Potential lineup: Alnwick, McGuinness, Goutas, Ng, Collins, Ralls, Siopis, Wintle, Grant, Etete, Meite.

Player to Watch: Ike Ugbo

The Canada international center-forward leads Cardiff this season with four goals from nine matches that he played. Ugbo added an assist to his record. The London-born Canadian joined Cardiff on a season-long loan deal from French side Troyes and it seems that was a worth of a gamble for the Welsh team.

Ugbo was capped by the Canada national team eight times and still awaits his first goal. Even though he is only 25 years old, Ugbo changed plenty of clubs while starting his career at Chelsea's youth academy. Before joining Troyes he played for the Belgian side Genk.
