Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Leeds – Middlesbrough odds and probability figures ahead of Saturday’s fixture below.

Leeds odds: 4/6 (1.67) – 60%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 28.6%

Middlesbrough odds: 13/5 (3.60) – 27.8%

Middlesbrough have the underdogs tag this week and the expected winners Leeds have a 60% probability of success according to the market makers. A 2-1 win in favour of the in-form hosts has plenty of pull in the correct score stakes at 13/2 (7.50).
