Manchester City v West Brom Betting Tips: 1 and Over 2.5, 2017-05-16

Manchester City
MANCHESTER CITY v WEST BROM Tuesday 16th May 2017 - Kickoff: 2000hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips It’s getting to crunch time in the Premier League with just two league matches remaining of the season for both Manchester City and Arsenal as the race for the european slots heats up in the top five of the English top flight. Manchester City take on West Brom at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night knowing that a win will see them leapfrog Liverpool into third spot with a two point cushion over The Reds. As the battle for supremacy intensifies, so too does the importance of goal difference as this could be the margin between Champions League qualification and Europa League with a significant difference in revenue at stake as well. Back to tonight’s game, and City are unbeaten in their last six, having won four of these with victories gained over Hull City, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Leicester City, but it’s been the number of draws that they’ve been involved in over the course of the season which ultimately cost them the title this term. But home form has been very solid as they’re unbeaten in their last 11 on home soil along with an overall home record of  10-7-1  34/16. 7 of their last 11 at home have seen over 2.5 goals in total, and with the need for all three points here, we could see further goals tonight. West Brom are currently treading water and seemingly cannot wait for the season to be over so they can re-group and prepare for next season’s campaign. Manager Tony Pulis will be desperate to see his troops come out of their current slump which has seen The Baggies now go seven league matches without a win, although they still occupy 8th place in the Premier League. A strong start to the season has therefore paid dividends for the west midlands club, but they head into this clash very much in poor form with five defeats in these last seven matches. West Brom’s away record stands at  3-7-7  14/24 and are also without a win from their last seven on the road, so the writing very much appears to be on the wall for them this evening. This is Manchester City’s last home game of the season, so I’m expecting a home win with goals here. Pick: Manchester City win and Over 2.5 @ 1.50 Betway

West Brom v Chelsea Betting Tips: 2 AH-1, 2017-05-12

N Golo Kante (France)
WEST BROM v CHELSEA Friday 12th May 2017 - Kickoff: 2000hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips West Brom will be hoping they can snap their miserable recent run of form in the Premier League on Friday night when they play host to title contenders Chelsea, following six league matches without a win. The Hawthorns is usually a pretty solid base for the home side but The Baggies have lost their last three on the trot on home turf with defeats suffered against Southampton, Liverpool and Leicester City amidst a once reasonable home record that now stands at a slightly disappointing  9-2-7  27/21. This fixture will be West Brom’s last home game of the season and they’ll be hoping they can finish off in style by beating the prospective title holders here. However, a below-par record at home against top half opposition of  2-1-5  9/12 may hold them back in this clash. Chelsea make their way to the west midlands on Friday evening knowing that all three points at The Hawthorns will hand them the Premier League title for the first time in three years, and having registered the most away wins in the English top flight along with two wins from the last three meetings against West Brom, The Blues could finally get over the line tonight. A disappointing campaign last season has actually helped Chelsea this time around as they’ve had no european distractions to contend with, and with five league wins from their last six matches overall, they look to be closing in on the title in impressive fashion. Chelsea’s away record stands at  12-3-3  29/16, and although they suffered a recent 2-0 defeat at Manchester United, they bounced back in triumphant fashion with a 3-0 win at Everton last time on the road. The likes of Hazard, Costa and Pedro could feature this evening. Pick: Chelsea AH-1 @ 1.61 Bet Victor

Burnley v West Brom Betting Tips: 1 AH0, 2017-05-06

Tony Pulis
BURNLEY v WEST BROM Saturday 6th May 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Burnley could lift themselves up into the top half of the Premier League if they take all three points against West Brom when the two teams clash at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, and in turn this would also guarantee Burnley’s top flight status for next season. Burnley possess the best home record out of all the teams situated in the bottom half of the Premier League (yes, even better than Hull City) with an overall record of  10-2-5  23/16 on home turf which has kept them out of trouble throughout their return to the Premier League in what has been a successful campaign for Sean Dyche’s men. Although their results away from home have threatened to make it a nervous run-in for The Clarets, six wins from their last nine at Turf Moor have consolidated their position in the top flight having registered notable wins over Southampton and Leicester City along with a point against Chelsea in recent weeks. Visitors West Brom have also put together what must be considered a great campaign under manager Tony Pulis as The Baggies currently occupy 8th place in the Premier League although they’ve suffered four defeats on the trot coming in to this encounter at Burnley. Recent defeats to Watford, Southampton, Liverpool and Leicester City have taken the gloss off West Brom’s earlier efforts this season and Pulis will be desperate for his charges to return to winning ways sooner rather than later. It’s interesting to note that three of West Brom’s last four defeats have been recorded on home turf, so an away trip might just take the pressure off. That said, West Brom are without an away win from their last six on their travels amidst an overall record of  3-6-7  12/22. This therefore leads me to believe that Burnley stand a great chance of getting something at Turf Moor today. Pick: Burnley AH0 @ 1.60 Bet Victor

West Brom v Leicester City Betting Tips: 1 AH+0.25, 2017-04-29

Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester)
WEST BROM v LEICESTER CITY Saturday 29th April 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips West midlands meet east when West Brom play host to Leicester City at The Hawthorns with the home side sitting in a creditable 8th place in the English top flight despite a string of recent defeats which has prevented them from improving upon their current league position. The Baggies have lost their last three in the Premier League as they’ve suffered defeats to Watford away from home along with back-to-back home losses to Southampton and Liverpool, but they have a good chance to redeem themselves on Saturday afternoon when they play an out-of-sorts Leicester City outfit. West Brom possess a home record of  9-2-6  27/20 and they’ve done enough this season to secure their place for another Premier League campaign next season. Look out for goalscoring midfielders Chadli and Morrison (5 goals apiece) as well as striker Rondon (7 goals). Visitors Leicester City saw their fortunes immediately improve following the highly controversial sacking of former manager Claudio Ranieri, and as is often the case, results improved straight away as The Foxes strung together a five-match winning sequence. However, the honeymoon period under new boss Craig Shakespeare appears to have worn off as his Leicester City side have now failed to win any of their last five matches overall in all competitions, including being dumped out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid. But let’s not forget Leicester’s achievements in both the Premier League and Champions League, and after all, they’re now probably ‘returning to the mean’ after reaching dizzying heights in their club history. The Foxes have lost their last two away matches on the trot - take West Brom with the handicap here. Pick: West Brom AH+0.25 @ 1.63 Bet Victor

Everton v West Brom Betting Tips: 1, 2017-03-11

Lukaku (Everton)
EVERTON v WEST BROM Saturday 11th March 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton’s promising nine-game unbeaten sequence in the Premier League came to an abrupt end last weekend when they went down to a 3-2 defeat away at Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but they return to their Goodison Park fortress for this afternoon’s match with West Brom as the hosts look to return to winning ways. Despite losing 3-2, Everton will be encouraged by their comeback along with striker Lukaku notching his 18th goal for the season, and with a solid home record of  8-4-1  27/10 behind them, The Toffees will be confident they can bounce back at Goodison Park. Everton have also won their last four matches on the trot with wins gained against Southampton, Manchester City, Bournemouth and Sunderland as the goals have flowed with the hosts scoring a total of 15 goals and conceding just 3 in reply! Visitors West Brom have also enjoyed a solid season so far as The Baggies sit in 8th place and a top half finish for Tony Pulis’ boys would be regarded as a successful campaign in the top flight for the west midlands club. West Brom have made themselves a hard unit to break down at home as they have followed Pulis’ successful blueprint from his former Stoke City days, but they’re still experiencing inconsistent results away from home as they’ve recorded a 2-1 win at Southampton but suffered defeats at Arsenal and Tottenham also. The Baggies’ away record also reflects their vulnerabilities on the road with a record of  3-5-5  12/17 which includes just one clean sheet on their travels which was in their first away match of the season at Crystal Palace. I have to therefore go with the Everton momentum here… Pick: Everton to win @ 1.70 William Hill

West Brom v Bournemouth Betting Tip West Brom – 25 February 2017

Premier League Tips
Saturday 25th February 2016 Kickoff: 1500hrs West Brom v Bournemouth Football – England – Premier League West Brom entertain Bournemouth at the Hawthorns on Saturday looking to continue what has been an excellent run of form at home of late. The Baggies have won six of their last seven in the league at home, with the only defeat coming against Manchester United in the middle of December. It’s been an impressive turnaround considering they managed only one win in their first five in front of their own fans this season, and a lot of credit has to go to Tony Pulis for that. West Brom continue to pick up points on the road, too, and that has led to them cementing a place in the top 10 where they currently sit eighth, four points behind an Everton team who have massively outspent them in wages and on transfer fees. There’s clearly a ceiling for West Brom because of their lesser budget but Pulis has developed a culture at the club, similar to the one he had at Stoke, which enables them to compete. The Baggies have never finished higher than eighth in this league but they have a realistic chance of doing so this time around. Whilst Bournemouth were not realistically expected to get much from their previous match against Manchester City, the 2-0 defeat leaves them very much involved in the relegation battle. They still have a six point gap between themselves and the bottom three but that is quickly eroded when teams continue to struggle to find wins with any regularity, and that’s certainly the issue for Eddie Howe’s men. It’s now just one win in their last nine league games and they’ve taken only five points from a possibly 27 in that spell. That’s an extremely concerning run of form, particularly as they had started the campaign very well and looked unlikely to be threatened by relegation as a result. Another major problem for them, which as blighted their season throughout, is the lack of points on the road. Bournemouth have won only two of their 12 league games this term, against Stoke and more recently Swansea. And it’s not going to get any easier for them on their travels as they still have to face three of the top five after this game, before ending with two games against fellow strugglers Sunderland and Leicester City. That away form will simply have to improve if they are to survive. Much of West Brom’s success is down to how well they defend as a team and their organization is hard to better in this league, but they are also well capable going forward. Salomon Rondon has been a standout for them in attack but they are very much a team who spread the goals around. Bournemouth do not struggle to score goals themselves but they could learn a thing or two from Pulis’ team at the other end. The Cherries have the joint worse away defensive record in the league and it will be tested once again on Saturday.

West Brom v Bournemouth Betting Tips

The two managers of these clubs have very different approaches to the game and whilst Howe has earned a lot of plaudits for getting Bournemouth to where they are, Pulis and West Brom deserve enormous credit for how they have performed this season. They may not have the same sort of footballer at the club but they have effective players who work well together and the fact they sit six places and 11 points above their weekend opponent’s proves it’s working. The home team make it difficult for whoever is visiting and you can be sure that Pulis will be instructing his players to make this game a physical one to put Bournemouth off their game. Howe’s men won here last season and also beat the Baggies 1-0 at Dean Court back in September, but I can see them struggling to get anything out this one. West Brom are strong at home and are scoring goals as well. This game is set up perfectly for them to take another three points and put pressure on Everton above them. West Brom 11/10 @ Boylesports

West Brom v Sunderland Betting Tips: 1, 2017-01-21

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v SUNDERLAND Saturday 21st January 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips My next pick features two sides that usually find themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League and fighting a relegation battle near the foot of the league table, but today’s hosts West Brom are enjoying a pretty successful campaign so far this season. West Brom have recently suffered defeats against Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, but these were games that they never expected to win, with even a draw against such opposition would have been considered a massive bonus; but wins over Southampton and Hull City were much more realistic and The Baggies duly obliged. West Brom have tightened up a lot this term at The Hawthorns and this is reflected by their home record which stands at  5-2-3  19/14 along with having racked up four wins from their last five on home turf with wins over Burnley, Watford, Swansea City and Hull City. Sunderland scored what was a rare Premier League win back in mid-December when they registered a valuable three points with a 1-0 win over Watford, but manager David Moyes and his Black Cats side have been unable  to replicate that success since, falling to defeats to Manchester United, Burnley and Stoke City. Sunderland sit second from bottom in the English top flight and are one point behind Crystal Palace ahead of this weekend’s round of matches; but an away record of  1-1-8  6/20 means they’ll probably struggle to keep up with a fairly solid West Brom outfit at The Hawthorns today. Sunderland have also lost their last four matches on the trot away from home, conceding a total of 12 goals and scoring just 2 in reply - home win here I fancy. Pick: West Brom to win @ 1.70 William Hill

Tottenham v West Brom Betting Tips: 1 AH-1, 2017-01-14

Premier League Tips
TOTTENHAM v WEST BROM Saturday 14th January 2017 - Kickoff: 1230hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Tottenham will fancy their chances of further extending their unbeaten start to the Premier League season at White Hart Lane when they play host to West Brom as only Liverpool in the whole division can boast the same record at Anfield. Tottenham have registered five straight wins in the English top flight in recent times as they’ve recorded important wins over Hull City, Burnley, Southampton, Watford and most notable of all, a 2-0 home win over London rivals Chelsea. Spurs hold an impressive and unbreached record at White Hart Lane which stands at  8-2-0  21/5 which includes six clean sheets so far, with shut-outs achieved against Manchester City and the aforementioned Chelsea. Visitors West Brom have enjoyed a more modest season so far but nevertheless, it’s been a solid one so far for manager Tony Pulis and The Baggies as they sit in a creditable 8th place in the Premier League. West Brom’s current league position was also boosted by recent back-to-back wins over Southampton and Hull City so they come into this encounter with a fair amount of confidence that they can take something away at White Hart Lane today. West Brom hold an okay record away from home of  3-3-4  9/10 while their record away at top half opposition reads a similar looking  2-0-3  4/5 but their wins have been at mid-table Southampton and now bottom half outfit Crystal Palace. I’ll back Tottenham for the win here Pick: Tottenham AH-1 @ 1.45 bet365

West Brom v Hull Betting Tips: 1, 2017-01-02

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v HULL CITY Monday 2nd January 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips West Brom bounced back from two recent losses to record a valuable three points in a 2-1 win away at Southampton at St Marys Stadium and they now return to The Hawthorns to take on second from bottom club Hull City in a game that they’ll fancy taking further points from. West Brom have enjoyed a fairly successful Premier League campaign so far this season as they sit in 8th place with a pretty good home record that stands at  4-2-3  16/13 and although they’ve suffered defeats to both Manchester clubs at home, in between they’ve recorded wins against Burnley, Watford and Swansea City. Manager Tony Pulis has continued his ability to get the best out of a side that may otherwise be sitting in the bottom half of the division, and his Stoke ‘blueprint’ has been successful with The Baggies this term to date. Look out for striker Rondon (7 goals) as potential anytime goalscorer for the hosts. Visitors Hull City snatched a draw from an almost certain win against Everton recently, as they failed once again to gain all three points in the Premier League, a run which has now extended to eight league matches overall. The Tigers were seemingly heading towards a 2-1 win at the KC Stadium against The Toffees but Everton equalised with just six minutes to go to break Hull’s hearts, but this is how the luck goes when you’re down at the bottom of the league table. But despite the recent points gained against West Brom (at home), Crystal Palace and Everton, it’s been their poor away form that has really dented Hull’s hopes of avoiding relegation with a poor record of  1-1-7  5/21 so far, along with failing to score in their last five away matches on the trot!

Arsenal v West Brom Betting Tips: 1 AH-1, 2016-12-26

Sanchez (Arsenal)
ARSENAL v WEST BROM  Monday 26th December 2016 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Arsenal head into their Boxing Day clash with West Brom having suffered back-to-back defeats away at Everton and Manchester City (both in 2-1 defeats) as they look to bounce back at The Emirates with all three points this afternoon. Bear in mind that both of these recent defeats for The Gunners were away from home, while on home turf they’ve registered a pretty solid looking record of  5-2-1  18/10 having won their last two home matches on the bounce with wins gained over Bournemouth and Stoke City. In addition, six of Arsenal’s eight home matches to date have seen the hosts score 2 goals or more so far this season, and although West Brom sit in a very reasonable 8th place in the English top flight, they could be put to the sword here today. Onto West Brom then, and as mentioned they currently sit in a creditable 8th position in the Premier League but come into this match having lost 2-0 at home to Manchester United at The Hawthorns last time out. A four-match unbeaten run which included wins over Leicester City, Burnley and Watford along with a point away at Hull City helped lift The Baggies up into the top half of the division, but defeats to Chelsea and Manchester United have balanced things out. Incidentally, West Brom hold a poor record away at top half opposition so far this season with a record of  0-1-2  2/4 and even though manager Tony Pulis is expected to ‘park the bus’ here, Arsenal should find a way to win comfortably. Pick: Arsenal AH-1 @ 1.51 Ladbrokes
