Rhodes 3/1 to score anytime in Boro win
Monday is here, but there is still exciting football action to enjoy and help you beat the start of the week blues, with Coral’s bet of the day a tasty 3/1 on Jordan Rhodes scoring anytime against Leeds United and Middlesbrough earning three Championship points.
Boro are flying high and aiming to clinch an automatic promotion spot into the Premier League for next season, with Aitor Karanka’s Northeast side sitting pretty in second position, just a point below leaders Hull City and possessing a crucial game in hand on their rivals.
Such second tier standings are a contrast to that of their next Yorkshire opponents, with Steve Evans’ Leeds lying further down in 16th place, seemingly safe from relegation, but well adrift of the coveted play-off spots, enduring some mid-table obscurity.
Rampant Rhodes to strike again
The visitors will be confident during their trip to Elland Road for this Monday night Championship encounter, having already thrashed Leeds 3-0 on home soil earlier in September last year, and this time around they have even more firepower capable of firing them to three points.
New frontman Jordan Rhodes arrived during the January transfer window and will be aiming to maintain his rampant record over Leeds, having dispatched six career goals against the Yorkshiremen so far.
The new Boro attacking danger had struck past Leeds in his last four outings for Blackburn Rovers before departing for ventures new in the Northeast, impressively bagging five goals in those successful match-ups.
Rhodes loves coming up against the Whites, with the Scottish frontman having recorded the third-highest amount of goals against Leeds in his career (six), netting the most against Charlton Athletic (eight). So make sure to back the clinical Scot to score in a Boro win at 3/1!
