West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the out-of-sorts Baggies pick up a much-needed three points?

After coming from behind twice to beat Birmingham City 3-2 at St Andrew’s in mid-December, West Bromwich Albion went two points clear at the top and a whopping 12 clear of third place. Fast forward six weeks, the Baggies are now just two points above the play-off positions in the Championship after a horrible run of results.

It’s been a spectacular collapse by Albion, who look nailed on for a top two finish. Since that victory at Birmingham, West Brom have failed to win any of their following seven in the Championship, drawing four and losing three. Slaven Bilic’s side have taken just eight points from the last 27 on offer.

Our betting prediction:
West Brom HT/FT
10/11

(odds taken 1430 GMT, Friday 31 January)

 
West Brom have failed to win in four home league matches, but only two teams have left The Hawthorns with all three points this term. The Baggies have won six, drawn six and lost two in league action on home turf. With Albion now two points behind leaders Leeds United, who have also faltered lately, only three points will do this weekend.

Luton Town Preview – Can the bottom Hatters avoid an 11th straight away league loss?

Luton Town, last term’s EFL League One winners, have struggled to adapt to life in the Championship so far this season. Graeme Jones’ troops are bottom of the table with 17 matches left, winning only seven times. No side in the second tier have lost more games than Town, as 19 of their 29 matches have ended in defeat.

Luton have been particularly poor away from Kenilworth Road, winning two and losing 13 of 15. Along the way, the Hatters have shipped a staggering 39 away league goals. Jones’ troops head to The Hawthorns having lost each of their previous 11 league and cup encounters on their travels.

West Bromwich Albion vs Luton Town Betting Advice

When Luton and West Brom locked horns at Kenilworth Road all the way back in August, Bilic’s troops returned to the Midlands with all three points. Town took a surprise early lead, with Harry Cornick netting for the hosts. However, Grady Diangana was Albion’s hero, scoring a second-half brace to give the Baggies a 2-1 win.
