Peterborough United vs Middlesbrough Predictions
Posh broke their 15-game league winless streak with a 3-1 victory over QPR before the international break. They moved up from the bottom of the standings to 23rd position with 26 points, seven points shy of the safety zone.
Meanwhile, the Boro have climbed to seventh place, just two points below the promotion playoff zone, but have battled to maintain consistency. Since the start of the season, when they went on a four-game winning streak, Chris Wilder’s side hasn’t won consecutive games.
With a win in their last game, Peterborough earned some leeway. Middlesbrough, on the other hand, is a superior team and should win all three points.

Peterborough United vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips
Chris Wilder may have relished the distraction of the FA Cup ahead of the international break after a spell of inconsistency in the Championship.
Boro eventually lost 2-0 to a good Chelsea team in the quarter-finals, but Wilder will be equally delighted that he can focus all of his concentration on trying to get the North-East club back into the Premier League.
Although Boro is the clear favorite to beat Peterborough at the weekend, Wilder and his team would have been impressed by their opponents’ performance last time out.
Posh was able to break a 15-match Championship winless drought in style, coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1.

When Folarin Balogun was given the opportunity to start against Chelsea, he failed to make an impact. His international goals with England’s youth squad, on the other hand, will have given manager Chris Wilder pause for thought.
