Bet of the day: Rhodes strikes in Boro victory over Wolves

Coral’s bet of the day

  • Jordan Rhodes bagged his first Middlesbrough goal against MK Dons
  • Boro sit third in the Championship
  • The Northeast club have lost just one home league game in 14 outings

Rhodes 2/1 to score in Boro victory

The Championship takes centre stage tonight as automatic promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough host Wolves, and as Coral’s bet of the day, you can back the Northeast side to triumph, with frontman Jordan Rhodes striking anytime at 2/1 (£20 max stake).

Middlesbrough v Blackburn Rovers - Sky Bet Championship - Riverside Stadium

This Friday night encounter holds huge significance for Boro, who are closing in on a promotion back to the Premier League, having climbed to third position in the second tier standings in a testing division.

Aitor Karanke’s hosts hold a truly dominant home record this current campaign and that should help see them secure three points over a Wolves outfit that are enduring mid-table obscurity in 13th place, as well as their January signing Rhodes.

Boro a supreme home force

In this crucial Championship clash, the home outfit will look to enjoy further home supremacy, having recorded a solid streak at the Riverside Stadium this term.

Boro have been toppled on just one occasion in 14 home league outings, stretching back to September last year, with that rampant run including a previous 11-game unbeaten streak and 10 victories.

Soccer - Sky Bet Championship - Fulham v Blackburn Rovers - Craven Cottage

January transfer window signing Rhodes opened his Boro account against MK Dons last month, striking a decisive 90th-minute winner to help overcome their Championship opponents in thrilling fashion.

The former Blackburn Rovers hitman netted 10 times for his old employers in the league before a high-profile switch to the Northeast club, and has looked like discovering his best form of old once again in new colours.

So make sure to back Rhodes to strike anytime and Middlesbrough to triumph at 2/1 (£20 max stake) in this Friday night match-up, as Karanka’s men look to keep the pace for an automatic promotion.
