West Brom v Liverpool Betting Tips – Premier League 21st April 12.30pm

West Brom pulled off one of their brightest moments of the entire season by collecting an away win at Old Trafford against Manchester United last weekend. That was a win totally out of nowhere but still, they are likely to be heading down to the Championship. Liverpool are still on the hunt for a second place finish in the league after collecting three points against Bournemouth last weekend.

West Brom News and Form

West Brom got the result of their season last weekend, a shock 1-0 success at Old Trafford against Manchester United. They played well and earned it too, with a commitment and organisation which has been lacking from them all season. The Baggies have collected four points from their last two league games and even though the season is still likely to end in relegation, at least they are showing some fight now. West Brom are on a five-match winless streak of home form (D1 L4) in the top flight as they welcome Liverpool on the weekend. The clean sheet that they got last weekend was their first since a 2-0 home win over Brighton back on January 13th. The Baggies have shipped at least two goals in seven of their last ten league games. West Brom’s home form is only W2 D8 L7 for the season, which is obviously why they are in relegation trouble. They are on a seven-match scoring streak at the Hawthorns though and as they have conceded in each of their last five so both teams to score at bet365 is a good option at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:52 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). West Brom have netted 18 goals in 17 home games this season and Jay Rodriguez, who got the winner at Old Trafford is their top scorer now this season with seven.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool cruised to a 3-0 home win over Bournemouth on the weekend, so their Champions League efforts didn’t lead to any drop of form in the league. Liverpool are W3 D1 L1 in their last five league games and they have only actually won one of their last three on the road W1 D1 L1, playing out a 0-0 with Everton in their last road game. Because of facing Man City in the second leg of their Champions League tie, Liverpool rested a lot of starting players for the Merseyside derby. The Reds are W9 D4 L4 on the road and they have averaged over two goals per away game. Mo Salah was at it again last weekend and he is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at 2/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:52 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). Twelve of his thirty league goals this season have come away from home. Liverpool have scored in 82% of their away games this season and they have only failed to win one of their seven away games against the current bottom eight sides in the league as it stands. In the bet365 correct score market Liverpool 2-1 option is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:52 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) and with good appeal.

West Brom v Liverpool Head to Head

This will be the third meeting between the two sides this term and West Brom have actually come out on top in those other two. There was a 0-0 draw between them in the league at Anfield back in December and then they met in the FA Cup fourth round and the Baggies pulled off a shock 3-2 win at Anfield, a game stacked with VAR controversy to get through. In the last five Premier League meetings, Liverpool are W2 D3 and West Brom are winless in four home league games against the Reds.

Liverpool 4/9, Draw 7/2, West Brom 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 3:52 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)

West Brom v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: Liverpool’s attack is going to cause West Brom’s back line a lot more problems than Manchester United’s did last weekend and so it is worth looking at the visitors getting a win on the board in a game that goes over 2.5 goals.
