Prediction and odds for the game: West Brom (7/4) vs Wolves (13/8)
We are backing the home win
When: Monday, 3rd May 2021, Kick-off 18:00
Where: The Hawthorns
On Monday evening, West Brom host Midlands rivals Wolves at the Hawthorns, in a must-win Premier League game for the home team in the fight for survival.
The Baggies are 11 points adrift of safety and their hopes of staying in the Premier League look to be slim. However, while there is still hope for Sam Allardyce’s team, then the home team will still battle on until it is mathematically impossible to stay up.
Their recent form has been a bit of a mixed bag of late in the English top-flight, as West Brom have won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five league outings.
One of West Brom’s main problems of late is their poor defensive displays, as they have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four league games. However, on the flip side, Allardyce’s team have also scored at least twice in three of their last four league outings.
West Brom do not have a great recent home record in the Premier League, as they have won just one of their previous six games at the Hawthorns. However, they have also suffered just one defeat in the same run of matches.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team is enduring a tough campaign and will be looking forward to the end of the season. They are currently 12th place in the table and look to have very little to play for the rest of the Premier League campaign.
The team from the Midlands have won just two of their last eight matches in the English top-flight. A 4-0 home defeat against Burnley last time out was a particularly poor result for the visitors.
Their recent Premier League games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last nine matches.
Wolves have struggled on their travels in the Premier League, winning just two of their last 11 league games away from home. Their recent away games in the English top-flight have been low-scoring, as five of their last seven league matches on their travels.
The visitors have won just one of the last six meetings with the home side, including losing the last three meetings.
Although West Brom look doomed to relegation, their recent displays have been decent. They haven’t given up and the Baggies seem to have a psychological advantage over their Midlands rivals. We are backing Allardyce’s team to continue their good record against Wolves by recording a victory. The other recommendation we make is under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 7/4 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/6. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
