Middlesbrough are not a fun team to watch under Pulis, but they usually a tough team to beat. That being said, Millwall often struggle on the road, with their only away win this season coming against the bottom of the table Ipswich.
Millwall have lost 9 of their 13 away matches this season, winning one and drawing three. Boro are starting to play better football again, with three wins one draw and one loss in their last five matches.
The visitors do not have the most potent attack as they come up against the best defence in the league, I can see them struggling. This will not be a pretty game, but I think the price is good for Boro to edge a win tomorrow.
Another game that will be pretty close, but I like the odds for QPR to get three points here. They are a solid team at Loftus Road, winning three of their last five matches while scoring two or more goals in each match.
Meanwhile, Preston are in a bad patch of form, losing their last two away games and three of their last five matches. They have picked up draws against Villa and Swansea, but both of those results came at Deepdale.
QPR are winless in their last three matches, but I feel they will come back with a home win here against a Preston side that does not travel well. Preston have lost eight away matches this season while drawing three and winning two.
At 5/4, QPR are a great price to win tomorrow.
Villa Park has seen the most goals in any stadium in the Championship this season while seeing both teams score in 10 of their 13 home matches. Meanwhile, Hull are on a terrific run of form winning their last six matches in a row while scoring 2 or more goals in each match.
In fact, Hull have scored 2 or more goals in their last five away matches in a row while seeing both teams score in four of those five. Villa failed to score in their 3-0 loss to Wigan on the road last week, but they have scored in every match at Villa Park this season.
They have scored two or more goals in their last five home matches in a row, and I just see goals in this match.
Goals, goals and more goals please boys. So, Chelsea have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals in four of their last five away matches, and I see it landing once again in this match.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals land in three of their last four Premier League matches while keeping a clean sheet against Huddersfield. The Gunners have scored 12 goals in their last four home matches, and if they are clinical tomorrow, they should have no issues getting a goal or two.
Chelsea’s usually solid defensive looks a little bit vulnerable at the moment, and Arsenal will certainly create chances. But, it’s Chelsea who go into this match as slight favourites. This is likely due to Arsenal’s shaky-looking defence which will struggle to keep Chelsea at bay tomorrow evening.
Hopefully, players will be clinical tomorrow, and this bet should land fairly comfortably. Let’s hope it’s a repeat of the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge which finished 3-2 to Chelsea. But more importantly, it was end to end and highly entertaining football throughout!
