Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Rodriguez to register first at 5/1. Rodriguez was disappointed not to be granted a move back to the Premier League following the Baggies’ relegation but alongside Gayle, is doing his best to ensure it’s just the one season in the second tier. The 29-year-old has seven league goals and is causing havoc for defences.

One to Watch: Mason Mount

The Chelsea youth graduate received his maiden senior England call-up for the recent international double-header with Croatia and Spain after a bright start to the campaign with Derby. Mount also spent last year on loan, plying his trade with Dutch side Vitesse where he scored 14 times in all competitions.

The 19-year-old is highly regarded with the Blues and has been earmarked for a squad role in the not too distant future. In the meantime, Mount will learn under the tutelage of his idol Lampard and with five goals to his name already, is one of the first names on the Rams team sheet. Mount is 17/4 to net anytime.

This Championship preview opens with West Brom. The Baggies were frustrated in the eventual 1-0 loss away at Wigan and finished the match with 10 men after Jake Livermore’s dismissal.

Strikers Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez had rare off days but will take their roles upfront with support from Harvey Barnes. Stalwarts Chris Brunt, Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi will all feature as West Brom seek an immediate return to the Premier League.

Visitors Derby sit in fifth after their memorable 2-1 win over then-Championship leaders Sheffield United. Frank Lampard’s side continue to improve and equally have the firepower to hurt any team in the division.

The Chelsea legend has opted for Jack Marriott to lead the line but can also call on the services of Martyn Waghorn, David Nugent and Mason Bennett. Talented youngsters Mason Mount and Harry Wilson should also feature.

West Brom vs Derby County Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Jay Rodriguez wanted a move away from West Brom but has stayed and is looking to fire his team back into the big time

In the pick of the midweek Championship fixtures, West Brom host Derby. Both outfits have the same goal and that is to achieve promotion to the big time. The Baggies, who have hit the net a whopping 31 times, have the experience and talent which will ensure they are there or thereabouts at the end of May, and rightly considered the bookies favourites for the title. Lampard’s travelling squad have struggled for consistency over the last three or four seasons, but the hope is the Blues all-time top scorer can provide the guidance to finally get the Rams over the line.

Football predictions for this titanic duel reveal West Brom at 19/20 to claim all three points and dent the hopes of a close rival. Darren Moore’s side are formidable on home soil, winning five of their six matches so far. With defeat against Wigan still fresh in the memory, expect the Baggies to come out firing on all cylinders.

Further football predictions show Derby at 14/5 to chalk up the win and close the gap on their opposition here to just a solitary point. Lampard has seen his side famously beat Manchester United in the Carabao Cup, and it is no coincidence the result has since visibly lifted both boss and players, who feel they can beat any side in the division if they can mirror the showing at Old Trafford.

The draw is 5/2 and is entirely possible. A goalless outcome, which would be a shock, is 11/1 and not a popular option in the existing football betting predictions market. 1-1 and 2-2 final scores are available at 12/1. The both teams to score predictions offer is 4/6 and could easily be fulfilled before half-time.

Dwight Gayle is the 4/1 favourite to open the scoring in this Championship preview. The former Crystal Palace and Newcastle forward is a guarantee of 20 goals plus in the second tier and is almost halfway there after just two months. Gayle fired the Magpies to promotion the season before last and is hotly tipped to do the same for West Brom.

Marriott is 7/1 in the same first goalscorer market. The Derby frontman has stern competition for the striker’s jersey but has done his cause no harm with back-to-back goals in the last two fixtures.

Predicted Score: West Brom 3 - 2 Derby County
