West Bromwich Albion Preview – Can Albion secure first league win?

Before a ball was kicked this season, Steve Bruce’s West Bromwich Albion were fancied for promotion. The Baggies massively underachieved last term, finishing down in tenth with a mere 67 points to their name.

Despite not playing badly, West Brom have started this campaign in slow fashion. On the opening weekend, they drew 1-1 at Middlesbrough before drawing 1-1 with Watford at The Hawthorns in game two. Albion then lost 2-1 at in-form Blackburn Rovers last weekend, which has left them on two points from three games.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1710 GMT, Tuesday 16 August)

Home form will be key if West Brom are to have a successful season, and they could really do with maximum points from this one. As you would expect, the Baggies are the bookies’ favourites at 3/5.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to leave Midlands with a positive result?

Cardiff City made wholesale changes to their squad this summer, and the Bluebirds team is almost unrecognizable these days. New-look Cardiff have made a solid start to their 2022-23 season, taking six points from a possible nine.

Cardiff kicked off their campaign with an excellent 1-0 win over Norwich City at the Cardiff City Stadium. They lost 2-1 at Reading in game two before a second-string City team was hammered 3-0 at home in the EFL Cup by EFL League One side Portsmouth. However, the Bluebirds bounced back with a 1-0 home success over Birmingham City last weekend.
