10/03/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm The Hawthorns V Predicted Score:2 - 2

Away Leicester City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 6/4. As mentioned, both BTTS and over 2.5 goals has resulted in plenty of games involving these two clubs.

2 We fancy:

Over 2.5 goals at 13/10. At the price it looks a really good one given that these two sides have both been involved in games seeing over 2.5 goals. Leicester have seen this result in six of their last seven away games. WBA have also seen over 2.5 goals result in four of their last five league games.

3 It's a long shot, but…

2-2 draw at 16/1. If there are going to be over 2.5 goals and both teams are going to score, this score line looks possible. Both sides play out plenty of draws also so it could be worth a punt.

West Brom vs Leicester City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Alan Pardew

Alan Pardew hasn’t been at West Brom long but he’s already under pressure

West Brom’s days in the Premier League are starting to look numbered and at this stage of the season, every game is a must win. They sit eight points adrift of safety with just 20 points this season so far and one more defeat could spell the end for Alan Pardew and his men.

They start the game as outsiders at 2/1 and host a Leicester City side who have struggled for wins recently, with just one win in their last seven league games. Leicester have not won an away game since December against Southampton and have won on the road just three times in total this season. Having said this, West Brom will be looking to capitalise on this and at 2/1 at home, they could be of some value.

Conceding goals is not the major problem it seems for Pardew’s men, they have conceded 43 goals so far this season, which is less than quite a few teams above them. It has been the scoring of goals that has let them down, netting just 22 so far this campaign, which is just not good enough at this level. Neither Solomon Rondon, Robson-Kanu or Daniel Sturridge have been able to get on the score sheet and the latter is now injured as well, so it looks bleak for them.

The draw at 21/10 looks a good bet in this one. WBA have drawn the second-highest amount in the league with 11, whilst Leicester have drawn more games than they have won. WBA are on a five-match losing run, so any point here would at least stop that fact. Leicester do not travel particularly well and against a side fighting for their lives, a point would not necessarily be a terrible result for them either.

BTTS – Yes has occurred in five of Leicester’s last five games in the league and WBA have scored at least once in four consecutive home games. On that basis, BTTS – Yes at 19/20 looks good value here. Over 2.5 goals is also a market to look at, given Leicester have seen this result in six of their last seven away games. Albion have also seen over 2.5 goals result in four of their last five league games. At 13/10 this is another bet that looks really good value.

Predicted Score: West Brom 2 - 2 Leicester City
