West Brom v Brighton Betting Tips: 2 AH+0.5, 2018-01-13

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v BRIGHTON Saturday 13th January 2018 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips West Brom would have enjoyed their break from the rigours of Premier League football in last weekend’s 2-0 win away at League Two side, Exeter City, as The Baggies ended a dismal run of 21 matches without a win in all competitions. In addition, West Brom’s win over The Grecians became new manager, Alan Pardew’s first win at the club, and they’ll return to top flight action this Saturday with perhaps a sense of renewed confidence, despite sitting second from bottom but level on points with Swansea City. However, this season’s trend seems to be against the home side here as they are without a win from their last 20 matches overall, and without a home win from their last 10. Indeed, you have to go all the way back to August and the opening fixture of the season for West Brom’s last win at The Hawthorns (v Bournemouth), amidst a poor record of  1-7-3  10/15. Although FA Cup and League Cup involvement is lower on the list of priorities these days for most Premier League clubs, Brighton will come into this clash buoyed by their FA Cup third round 2-1 win at home against rivals Crystal Palace. And following a run of three straight Premier League defeats to Liverpool, Huddersfield Town and Tottenham, The Seagulls have since lost just once in their subsequent five matches overall, which was a 2-0 loss at Chelsea. On the plus side, Brighton gained points in draws with Burnley, Newcastle United and Bournemouth, along with a 1-0 home win over Watford. Brighton’s ‘area of opportunity’ though still centres around their ordinary form away from home where they hold a pretty ordinary record of  2-2-7  5/13, but it should be noted that three of their last five away matches were against top five clubs (Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea). Pick: Brighton AH+0.5 @ 1.82 Bet Victor looks decent value

West Ham v West Brom Betting Tips: 2 AH+0.5, 2018-01-02

Premier League Tips
WEST HAM v WEST BROM Tuesday 2nd January 2018 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Tuesday night brings us further action from the Premier League and my next pick is a real ‘six-pointer’ between hosts, West Ham, and visitors, West Brom in a crucial basement battle at the London Stadium. West Ham have been slowly gathering momentum under new manager, David Moyes after a slow start under his watch which saw The Hammers lose to Watford, Everton and Manchester City but they then bounced back with a 1-0 home win over Chelsea and a 3-0 win away at Stoke City. Points against Arsenal at home and a Boxing Day 3-3 draw away at Bournemouth mean that West Ham have lost just once in their last five matches overall, which was a defeat to relegation rivals Newcastle United. However, just one win from their last six at home amidst an overall home record of  3-2-4  10/14 suggests they’re still not entirely comfortable in their home surroundings. Visitors West Brom earned another vital point in their bid to avoid relegation on New Years Eve when they held Arsenal to a 1-1 draw which followed on from a point against Everton in a 0-0 draw in the game beforehand, both results being achieved at The Hawthorns. The Baggies now travel to London on Tuesday night where they’ll be looking to extend their unbeaten run to three matches, and although they’ve taken points in draws at Tottenham and Liverpool, they’ve also suffered defeats at Huddersfield Town, Swansea City and Stoke City. West Brom’s away record stands at a poor  1-3-6  5/13 and their best they can hope for here  appears to be a draw, but they come up against a West Ham side who have struggled in front of their home fans’ expectations. Pick: West Brom AH+0.5 @ 2.01 Bet Victor

West Brom v Arsenal Betting Tips: 2, 2017-12-31

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v ARSENAL Sunday 31st December 2017 - Kickoff: 1630hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips The second match in this Sunday’s Premier League double bill is a clash at The Hawthorns between bottom of the league, West Brom, and sixth placed Arsenal as the visitors will look to take advantage of the goal-shy hosts here. West Brom’s problems in front of goal continued on Boxing Day when they were held to a dour 0-0 draw by Everton, and this became West Brom’s ninth game without hitting the back of the net this season to date - and their fourth blank at home so far amidst a home record of  1-6-3  9/14. It’s now a disastrous run of 18 league matches without a win for The Baggies who actually started this season with back-to-back wins over Bournemouth and Burnley, but their form has dipped to alarming levels, and if new manager Alan Pardew can’t turn their fortunes around soon, he could be shown the door as well. Visitors Arsenal secured all three points in their recent London encounter against Crystal Palace but it wasn’t all plain sailing despite being 3-1 up and apparently cruising, before Palace snatched a goal back to make it a nervy last few minutes for The Gunners. Nevertheless, that win extended Arsenal’s unbeaten run to five matches and with just one defeat from their last nine outings overall, they’ll be confident that they can grab all three points against a woeful West Brom outfit today. And although Arsenal’s away record isn’t entirely convincing with stats of  3-3-4  12/15, they should be able to create plenty of goalscoring opportunities in the west midlands today, especially with the return to fitness of creative midfielder, Jack Wilshire, pulling the strings in the middle of the park. The best West Brom can hope for is a draw, but Arsenal’s quality should shine through here. Pick: Arsenal to win @ 1.71 Marathonbet

Stoke City v West Brom Betting Tips: X, 2017-12-23

Premier League Tips
STOKE CITY v WEST BROM Saturday 23rd December 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips In context, this fixture is possibly one of the biggest games this weekend in the Premier League as 17th placed Stoke City take on second from bottom club, West Brom at the bet365 Stadium with a precious three points at stake for both clubs. With a busy fixture schedule ahead of them, it’ll be vital for Stoke City to pick up as many points as possible in this clash as they travel to Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day and then a trip to Chelsea on New Years Day at Stamford Bridge. Stoke have lost five of their last six overall in the Premier League, managing just the single win during this sequence which was a 2-1 home win over bottom club, Swansea City, but whilst Potters manager, Mark Hughes, stresses that this isn’t a ‘must win game’, it’s also a must not lose one against fellow relegation candidates West Brom. Visitors West Brom just cannot score goals at the moment, and even when they do (as they did against Manchester United), they were still outscored by United in a 2-1 defeat at The Hawthorns which became their 16th game without a win in the top flight. Indeed, you have to go way back to the start of this season in August where The Baggies recorded back-to-back wins over Bournemouth and Burnley respectively, but the wheels have fallen off in spectacular fashion since. With an eight match run without a win on their travels, this has also become a must not lose fixture for the west midlands club who possess a poor away record of  1-3-5  4/10, which includes failing to score on five occasions. Both of these clubs were formerly managed by Tony Pulis - I wonder if they’d wished they had held onto him now? I can see both teams cancelling each other out here in either a 0-0 or 1-1 stalemate. Pick: Draw @ 3.30 Betfair

West Brom v Manchester United Betting Tips: 2, 2017-12-17

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v MANCHESTER UNITED Sunday 17th December 2017 - Kickoff: 1415hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips West Brom have home advantage at The Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon but they face a Manchester United side who have won five of their last six, and the hosts may have trouble keeping up with their visitors in the attacking department. West Brom are another side who have recently changed managers as previous boss, Tony Pulis, was shown the door after some poor results and a lack of attacking quality, but new boss, Alan Pardew, recently bemoaned his side’s lack of firepower as The Baggies have failed to score in their last three matches, which has dropped them into the relegation zone. West Brom have drawn four of their last five, but are without a win in the top flight from their last 15 overall, and indeed have registered just two wins from their last 26 matches in the Premier League.  A home record of  1-5-2  8/12 tells you all you need to know about the home side’s current plight. Manchester United make their way to the west midlands on the back of an aforementioned strong run of five wins from their last six which would have normally seen United making a strong case for a title bid, but they’re now a massive 14 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City following their neighbours’ 4-1 thumping of Tottenham yesterday. United have recently recorded wins over Newcastle United, Brighton, Watford, Arsenal and Bournemouth but defeat to Manchester City has seemingly ended their title hopes. Nevertheless, United will still keep plugging away, if only to secure a top four finish. United hold an away record of  4-2-2 15/8 and this, along with their superior quality, should be enough to grab all three points here. Pick: Manchester United to win @ 1.62 Bet Victor

Tottenham v West Brom Betting Tips: 1 HT/FT, 2017-11-25

Premier League Tips
TOTTENHAM v WEST BROM Saturday 25th November 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Tottenham will be looking to bounce back with all three points when they return to Wembley Stadium for this Saturday’s clash against West Brom,following last week’s north London derby defeat to Arsenal. Tottenham were handed a second away defeat on the trot when they went down 2-0 at derby rivals, Arsenal, and Spurs will now be looking to take advantage of a poor West Brom side on home turf where they’ve picked up three straight Premier League wins on the trot with victories over Bournemouth, Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Tottenham’s home record has certainly improved after much hype from the media about them struggling to come to terms with playing at Wembley, and their record now sits at a much more respectable looking  3-2-1  8/4 which includes three clean sheets to date. Visitors West Brom took the bold decision of sacking former manager, Tony Pulis at the start of this week following a run of 10 league matches without a win which has left The Baggies just one league place and one point above the bottom three. However, Pulis is the kind of manager you want if your team is in a relegation scrap, and I’m finding it difficult to believe that caretaker-manager, Gary Megson, will be able to turn things around at The Hawthorns, even on a temporary basis. West Brom have lost their last four matches on the trot, conceding 9 goals and scoring just 2 in reply, while their away record stands at a poor  1-1-4  3/8, with their one success this season being a 1-0 win at Burnley earlier in the season. The west midlands club have slumped to five matches without a win on the road since though. Pick: Tottenham HT/FT @ 1.78 Bet Victor

West Brom v Chelsea Betting Tips: 2, 2017-11-18

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v CHELSEA Saturday 18th November 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips The Hawthorns is the venue of my next pick with West Brom desperate for a result against fourth placed Chelsea, following a string of disappointing results for the west midlands club. The murmers of unrest have been growing steadily louder on the terraces with West Brom now sitting just above the relegation zone following a dismal run of nine league matches without a win in the top flight, including losing their last three matches on the trot with defeats to Southampton, Manchester City and Huddersfield Town. The hosts’ best chance here seems to be nicking an unlikely point against the title holders, and their home record of  1-3-1  6/6 suggests that Tony Pulis will set his side up to frustrate their visitors, rather than go toe-to-toe and play an open game. The West Brom fans will demand a better display this time around, or the crowd could well turn on the players and manager alike. Visitors Chelsea secured a vital three points prior to the international break when they registered a 1-0 home win over Manchester United which handed The Blues a third consecutive Premier League win after they’d recorded wins over Watford and Bournemouth. However, nothing less than a win at West Brom will do today for Antonio Conte’s men as they trail league leaders, Manchester City by a significant nine point margin. But this was the situation at the start of last season, and with an impressive away record of  4-0-1  10/4 under their belts, Chelsea look to be in good shape ahead of their visit to the west midlands. Chelsea will be boosted by the return of striker, Morata, as they look to grab all three points to stay in the hunt for a top four finish. Pick: Chelsea to win @ 1.62 Bet Victor

Leicester City v West Brom Betting Tips: 1, 2017-10-16

Premier League Tips
LEICESTER CITY v WEST BROM Monday 16th October 2017 - Kickoff; 2000hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Monday night football returns again in the Premier League following the weekend’s action, and Leicester City will prepare for a big game at the King Power Stadium against West Brom with the home side currently occupying one of the relegation spots. Following just one win from their first seven league matches of the new Premier league campaign, The Foxes find themselves in the bottom three, but a win tonight would see them jump into 13th place on the top flight league table. Leicester’s one success this season so far was a 2-0 home win over Brighton, but while they’ve failed to win any of their subsequent five matches thereafter, they’ll be encouraged by points on the road at Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth, along with having beaten West Brom 1-0 away back in April in their last meeting with The Baggies. Visitors West Brom sit in the relative comfort of a mid-table position ahead of their trip to the east midlands for this Monday night clash, but they too have stumbled in recent times as they’re without a win from their last five matches overall in the Premier League. After registering back-to-back wins over Bournemouth at home and an away win at Burnley, The Baggies have since slumped to defeats to Brighton and Arsenal away from home amidst an overall record on the road of  1-0-2  2/5. Just two wins from their last 16 away from home though underlines the problems that West Brom have had in the top flight, and this includes four defeats from their last five on their travels, with losses incurred at Manchester City, Swansea City, Brighton and Arsenal. To sum up, I believe Leicester can grab the points here this evening. Pick: Leicester City to win @ 2.00 Unibet\

West Brom v Watford Betting Tips: Under 2.5, 2017-09-30

Premier League Tips
WEST BROM v WATFORD Saturday 30th September 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Following a promising start to their new Premier League season, West Brom’s recent results are in danger of undoing The Baggies’ earlier good work, but they have a chance of redemption at The Hawthorns with the visit of Watford on Saturday afternoon. Okay, so it’s not cause for panic just yet, as West Brom have lost just twice so far this season, and these defeats were both recorded on their travels at Brighton and Arsenal, lest we forget their first away match of the season that ended with a 1-0 win at Burnley. Back on home turf today, West Brom still remain unbeaten with a record of  1-2-0  2/1 and while the goals have hardly been flowing, the results have been solid enough with a 1-0 opening day win over Bournemouth, which has been followed with points against Stoke City and West Ham. It’s worth noting that 8 of their last 9 home matches have ended up under 2.5 goals. Visitors Watford have emerged from out of the shadows of new-boys Huddersfield Town and their headlines to become one of the surprise packages of the Premier League so far this season as they currently occupy sixth place, level on points with Liverpool and Tottenham. The Hornets are one of only four clubs to possess a 100% record away from home so far this season (Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham are the others), so they’re in very good company as they make their way to the west midlands this afternoon. Despite being unable to win at their Vicarage Road, Watford have recorded three wins on the trot on the road at Bournemouth, Southampton and Swansea City, all of whom sit in the bottom half of the league, but more importantly, have all lost at least twice at home already this season. West Brom should therefore provide a sterner test for Marco Silva’s boys who are expected to line up with a 4-2-3-1 formation, as are The Baggies. As a result, I’m not expecting this to be a goal-fest by any means. Pick: Under 2.5 @ 1.70 Bet Victor

Arsenal v West Brom Betting Tips: Over 2.5, 2017-09-25

Premier League Tips
ARSENAL v WEST BROM Monday 25th September 2017 - Kickoff: 2000hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips The final match of this weekend’s Premier League action takes place at the Emirates Stadium where Arsenal take on West Brom on Monday night, with the hosts really needing all three points in order to stay in touch with the top five. Arsenal come into this match below West Brom in the league table, although the division is still in it’s infancy in these first few weeks of the new season, and a win tonight for Arsenal would see them lift themselves up into 7th place. Arsenal hold a 100% record on home turf so far, having despatched Leicester City and Bournemouth, along with a 3-1 win over German club, FC Cologne, in their opening Europa League group match. On the domestic front, Arsenal have won their last seven in the Premier League on home soil, scoring 18 goals in the process. New signing, Lacazette (2 goals) is expected to spearhead The Gunners’ attack tonight. Visitors West Brom sit in 10th spot in the early stages of the Premier League ladder although they come into this encounter without a win from their last three league matches; two draws against Stoke City and West Ham respectively, were either side of a 3-1 defeat away at new-boys, Brighton. Turning to West Brom’s results away from home, and you’ll find that The Baggies have struggled on their travels of late having registered just one win from their last 11 matches on the road, so they’re not expected to spring a surprise at The Emirates this evening. Former Arsenal player, Kieran Gibbs, is expected to line up against his former team-mates, while Gareth Barry is in line to break the Premier League record for most appearances this evening. Arsenal are expected to win, and I think we’ll see some goals here tonight as a result. Pick: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.67 Betfair
