Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Gayle to score and West Brom to win at 9/4 with Sky Bet. The striker has been in hot scoring form and we expect him to get back among the goals in a Baggies victory.

2 We fancy:

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 6/5 with Sky Bet is our main bet for this game. Both sides are capable of goals and neither side keep many clean sheets, so this bet looks a solid one.

3 It's a long shot, but…

West Brom to win and over 4.5 goals at 39/5 with 188Bet. The Baggies have already won with this bet on four occasions this season and, given they have Jay Rodriguez and Gayle up top, they are capable of scoring plenty.

One to Watch: Dwight Gayle

The on-loan Newcastle United forward has proven to be a brilliant bit of business by West Bromwich Albion and has already scored six goals this season. He has scored goals wherever he has been and he already looks like this league is slightly beneath him, so you would not put it past him to go and bag 20 goals this term. He is quick and deadly inside the box, whilst also having the ability to produce brilliant efforts from outside the area.

Sheffield Wednesday vs West Brom Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

In this Championship preview, we will be looking ahead to the clash involving table-topping West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield Wednesday. We will be sifting through the markets to find you the best free football betting tips for this match.

West Brom, after a slow start, are now really starting to get to grips with the Championship and are now sitting top of the table after 10 rounds of fixtures, having won four of their last five league games. They are the league’s top goalscorers with 25 and they also have the league’s most prolific strikers in Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez, who have six and seven goals respectively.

Wednesday are currently 12th position in the Championship but have recently enjoyed some decent results. They were 2-1 winners at Aston Villa two weeks ago and held second-placed Leeds United last time out. The Owlsare also yet to lose at home this season, drawing three and winning two of their games at Hillsborough so far.

Looking at some football predictions for this game, it looks quite a difficult one to call. Wednesday are 3/1 for a home win, with the Baggies backed by the bookies at 11/10 and the draw 13/5. Both these sides seem to be involved in both teams to score fixtures, this bet having resulted in 100 percent of Wednesday’s home games and four of West Brom’s five away matches. Our first football prediction for this week is BTTS at 7/10 with William Hill.

Our next Championship prediction comes in the anytime goalscorer market, with Dwight Gayle our selection at 6/4 with Blacktype. The Newcastle United loanee has already scored six league goals this season and has scored in three consecutive league games for WBA. At those prices, it would be foolish not to take him on.

Our final bet of the day here is for over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 6/5 with Sky Bet. This bet has landed in three of Wednesday’s last five home games and in three of West Brom’s last three away matches and, given both teams score goals, we should be in for a very entertaining game. The Baggies are extremely good going forward but have kept just one clean sheet all season so while we think Wednesday will score, the visitors should have the quality to come out on top.  

Predicted Score: Sheffield Wednesday 1 - 3 West Brom
