Peterborough 3.9 v Middlesbrough 2.021/1; The Draw 3.8514/5
Middlesbrough's purple patch of form appears to have ended when you consider that they have won just one and lost three of their last four league games. But in all three of those defeats they played well, extremely well at Cardiff in fact.
True, Boro's home loss to Bristol City was a huge shock but you don't become a bad side overnight and Tony Mowbray's men look a decent bet to beat massively out-of-form Peterborough this weekend.
Middlesbrough have already won an impressive eight away games this term in all competitions and the reason they should make it nine is because a) Posh are a very poor side who don't score many, and b) Boro are capable of scoring from all over the pitch. In fact the Teesside club has already seen 18 different players get on the scoresheet this season, a very impressive statistic indeed.
Peterborough have lost a shocking 15 league games this season, and in all but one of those defeats they failed to score more than once. They have lost 80% of their home games, and half of their 12 goals scored at London Road cam in their two wins. Generally they struggle to score, and that should pave the way for a comfortable away victory.

Charlton 3.02/1 v Brighton 2.6213/8; The Draw 3.55/2
I expected all three of last season's League One clubs that were promoted to the Championship to be fine once they found their feet in this division, so the less said about Sheffield Wednesday the better! But Charlton have most definitely found their feet and are starting to impress me somewhat.
Many people would have forgiven the Addicks a poor run of form after being thumped at home to Middlesbrough last month, but they've responded magnificently, avoiding defeat in all six of their subsequent games, winning four of them.
Immediately following that defeat to Boro Chris Powell's men put five past current league leaders Cardiff, and in their last five league games they've conceded just one goal. At the weekend they were good value for the point that they earned in a goalless draw with in-form Millwall and I can see them holding firm again when far from free-scoring Brighton visit The Valley on Saturday.
The Seagulls were the early pacesetters in the Championship but a run of just three wins in 13 games has seen them drop to eighth in the division. Gus Poyet's men have already failed to score in seven of their 20 league encounters this term, and they've scored one or less in 60% of their games.
Recommended Bet: Back Charlton to win @ 3.02/1
Crystal Palace 2.1411/10 v Blackpool 3.613/5; The Draw 3.814/5
This should be a cracking game between high-flying Palace and improving Blackpool, but undoubtedly the 'Ian Holloway against the club he left just last month' aspect will grab most of the attention pre-match.
Holloway has enjoyed a good start at his new club, winning four and drawing one of the six games that he has overseen. But to nobody's surprise, Holloway's side, as did all the sides he has managed, can score goals - 14 of them in fact during those six games.
At Selhurst Park the Eagles are the Championship's great entertainers. They have scored 11 goals in three home games since Holloway took charge, scored an average of 2.7 goals per game on home soil this term, and their 10 league games in front of their own fans have averaged a massive 3.9 goals per game. And now Blackpool are the visitors!
The Tangerines are not shy in front of goal either. Still unbeaten under Michael Appleton Blackpool's 20 league games this season have averaged 3.2 goals per game and they scored four the last time they were on the road. Both sides will be desperate for the win, so an open game is definitely on the cards. Expect goals.
Recommended Bet: Back Over 3.5 Goals @ 3.02/1
