The Potters have fallen back into losing ways, having suffered back-to-back league defeats which have kept them rooted in the bottom two. West Brom are flying high at the other end of the table, however. They are one of the promotion favourites and three points in Staffordshire on Monday would be very welcome.

West Brom 13/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 30th, 2019 at 2:12 p.m.)
The Potters have lost back to back games in the league against Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall, without having managed to get on the scoresheet. That leaves them with a dreadful W2 D2 L10 record this season in the Championship. At home, they are W1 D1 L5 only. The one success in that sequence came in their last home fixture, a 2-0 win over Fulham, which was actually a good very good result.
The Potters have conceded at an average of 1.86 goals per home game this season and 71% of matches at the Bet365 Stadium have gone over 2.5 goals. It’s been one home clean sheet from Stoke this season only. Four of the five home losses which they have suffered haven by just one goal margin. After last weekend’s loss against Millwall, Stoke were four points away from safety and with a horrible goal-difference disadvantage too.
The Baggies won both league meetings last season
Stoke have taken one win in their last nine against West Brom
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings
West Brom are W2 D1 L1 in their last four visits to Stoke
The Baggies are flying at the top of the table, even though they have drawn their last two games. Those were both 2-2 draws as well against Barnsley and Charlton. The away record of West Brom is a good W4 D2 L1 which is one win more than they have managed at home in this campaign. They have won two of their last three on the road and the one away defeat suffered was out at Leeds.
West Brom have averaged 1.8 goals per game in the league this season and defensively they have been very good on their travels. West Brom have only given up five goals in their seven away games this season. Three of their four away wins have been by a margin of one goal and even though they have lost just once on their travels, they have been trailing at the break in three of their seven. 78% of West Broms’ away goals have come in the second half of games.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 30th, 2019 at 2:12 p.m.)
Stoke’s brief revival has burned out pretty quickly. They are just lacking the punch going forward to likely trouble West Brom too much. The Baggies may have to grind a bit at the Bet365 because they won’t be given an easy game, but they have the scoring power to secure three points.

West Brom sits top of the league still, despite only managing a home draw against Barnsley in midweek. They stay at home for this weekend’s action as they welcome Charlton. The Addicks have adapted to life in the Championship pretty well this season, but have just had a few wobbles on their travels. Read our West Brom v Charlton betting tips for more.
West Brom 4/9
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 25th, 2019 at 11:15 p.m.)
The Baggies played out an entertaining 2-2 home draw against Barnsley in midweek. That leaves them unbeaten in three league games now (W2 D1). West Brom are the joint top-scorers in the division and they boast a home record of W3 D3. They have taken a win in three of their last four at the Hawthorns, each of which have gone over 3.5 goals. Two-thirds of West Brom’s home games this season have finished under 2.5 goals. The Baggies are yet to earn a home clean sheet.
Of their seven wins recorded this season, four have been by one goal margin, three by a two-goal margin. While West Brom have scored in each of their last four home games, they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four at the Hawthorns. The Baggies have hit the back of the net in all home fixtures this season. Two-thirds of their goals in this campaign has been in the second half of matches. However, despite them being top scorers in the league, they have only opened the scoring in four games.
This is the first meeting since the 2007/08 Championship season
West Brom took four points from the last two league meetings
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings in all competitions
Charlton have won three of their last four league visits to the Hawthorns (L1)
The Addicks suffered 2-1 setback against Bristol City in midweek. That leaves them with a W2 D2 L2 record on their travels in the Championship this season. They are winless in their last three on the road though, taking just one point in that sequence. Charlton, who were promoted to the Championship at the end of last season, have given a good account of themselves and are sitting in the top ten.
They average 1.5 goals per away game this season, the same rate at which they have conceded. Two-thirds of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and this is probably going to be a high scoring meeting at the Hawthorns. Three of the four losses that Charlton have suffered this season all been by one goal margin only. Just once have they been losing at the halftime break in a road game (W2 D3). Charlton have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games and that will be a big concern for them against the league’s top scorers.
West Brom will probably get there in the end, because the defence of Charlton may not be able to stick in there for the full 90 minutes. The visitors will get chances and it’s worth backing them to get on the scoreboard. But still, the home win takes it.
26th October 2019 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
West Brom made it back to back wins in the league on the weekend as they claimed an away success at Middlesbrough. That keeps them top of the table by two points. Will they be able to defend their top spot on Tuesday as they face up to Barnsley? The Tykes are struggling badly at the foot of the table. Read our West Brom v Barnsley betting tips for more.
West Brom 1/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 20th, 2019 at 4:17 p.m.)
West Brom claimed a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough on the weekend to leave them in good standing at the top of the Championship table. They are W7 D4 L1 now in this campaign and on home soil they are unbeatable. The Baggies have a W3 D2 record at the Hawthorns this season, winning their last three on the bounce there. West Brom have scored at least three goals in each of their last four home games as well.
However, they have conceded in all of their home fixtures in the league this season, shipping exactly two in each of their last three at the Hawthorns. The Baggies are averaging 2.6 goals per home game this season. Surprisingly for a team sitting at the top of the table, West Brom have scored the opening goal in 4 of 12 league games only. They have been leading at halftime in only three. But they are still the top-scoring side in the division and there should be points on offer here for them.
This is the first meeting since the 2009/10 Championship
Barnsley are undefeated in three against West Brom (W2 D1)
West Brom are unbeaten in five home games against Preston
Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings
Barnsley are in trouble not having won since the opening weekend of the season. It was a 1-1 draw that they took against Swansea on the weekend, which was a pretty decent point. Their away form makes for some miserable reading though as they have taken just one point from their five away fixtures. Barnsley have managed to score only one goal away from home this season in the Championship.
That’s how bad it has been for them. They have conceded at least two goals in three of their four away losses as well. Six of the seven losses that they have suffered this season (home and away) have been by a margin of at least two goals. Barnsley have been level at the half time break in four of their five away games this season. They have conceded in each of the last six games (home and away) in the division. 8 of the 10 away goals that Barnsley have conceded have been in the second half of games.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 20th, 2019 at 4:17 p.m.)
A great chance by the looks of it to push for a comfortable home win. West Brom have to fancy their chances of getting their first home clean sheet of the seasons in this one. That has to be backed given Barnsley’s lack of scoring threat on the road. West Brom to win to nil.
20th October 2019 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Leeds suffered a setback on the weekend as they suffered a shock loss at Charlton. That saw the end of their perfect away record for the season. They will be looking for just their second home win of the campaign on Tuesday as they face West Brom. The Baggies moved to the top of the table on the weekend. Read our Leeds v West Brom betting tips for more.
West Brom 17/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2019 at 5:45 p.m.)
Leeds went down 1-0 at the newly promoted Charlton on the weekend. That was some knockback for them. It leaves them with only one win in their last four league fixtures now (D1 L2). Their home record for the campaign is at W1 D2 L1, winless in two at Elland Road. All four of Leeds’ home games in the division this season have ended under 2.5 goals.
It is less than a goal per home game that the Whites have averaged so far. Leeds have not been losing at halftime in any of the home fixtures this term though. Of the three goals which they have shipped at Elland Road. Leeds have opened the scoring in seven of their nine league fixtures this season, leading at the break in four of them.
Both teams home wins last season, scoring exactly four goals in their successes
Each of the last five meetings in all competitions have gone over 3.5 goals
There have been a total of 24 goals in the last five meetings
Leeds are won one of their last four at home against the Baggies (D2 L1)
The Baggies top the table after the weekend of action in which they picked up a 2-0 success at QPR. That is back to back wins in the league for them and it maintained their undefeated record in the campaign as well. Out on the road, the Baggies have taken a W3 D2 L0 record. Home and away West Brom have scored at least two goals in three of their last four games.
They have averaged 1.6 goals per away fixture this campaign, conceding at under a goal per game. Of the nine away goals that West Brom have produced, six of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Despite their undefeated season, West Brom have conceded the opening goal in seven of their nine league games this season. Twice on their travels, they have been losing 1-0 at half time.
The Baggies have shown tremendous character this season to remain unbeaten despite the amount of opening goals that they have conceded. They will be happy enough to go and get a point at Elland Road, where Leeds are not exactly in red hot form. Draw.
30th September 2019 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
QPR are flying at the moment. They have put together a magnificent four-match winning streak in the division to land themselves a place in the top six. Can they keep their hot momentum going as they take on West Brom? The Baggies are right there level on points with Rangers so this should be quite the clash. Read our QPR v West Brom betting tips for more.
West Brom 17/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 25th, 2019 at 1:17 p.m.)
The R’s have absolutely burst into life with their four-match winning streak. They have netted at least two goals in each of those and they have done in all five league wins recorded this season. At the moment QPR sits at W5 D1 L2 for the campaign. They have won back to back home fixtures, scoring three goals exactly in both victories over Wigan and Luton. Even with their surge of form, QPR have no clean sheet this season.
Both teams have scored in all but one of QPR’s league fixtures this season. Their record at Loftus Road is W2 D1 L1. Each of their last five games in the second tier have finished over 2.5 goals. With three of their four home fixtures going over the goal-line, then goals will be expected when they host the Baggies. Four of QPR’s five wins this season have been by a margin of one goal. They have scored 71% of their league goals in the second half of fixtures.
Each of the last four meetings have gone over 3.5 goals
QPR lost both league games against West Brom last season, conceding 10 goals in total
West Brom have lost one of their last five visits to Loftus Road in all competitions
Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight meetings in all competitions
The Baggies are on their game as they have yet to taste defeat in league action this season. They are at W4 D4 for their campaign with a W2 D2 record on the road. West Brom have netted six goals in their four road games and are yet to take a clean sheet on their travels, conceding exactly one goal in each road fixture. Like QPR, all but one of their league wins this season have been by a one-goal margin.
West Brom have been losing at halftime in two of their away fixtures. The Baggies have hit the back of the net in all league games this season with them scoring 60% of goals in the second half of games. Only in one league fixture this season have West Brom managed to open the scoring. That’s quite surprising really, especially considering that they are the top-scoring side in the entire division with 15.
This is likely going to be a tight game. Both are carrying themselves with good strengths and positives at the moment. The safest option given the great form that they both have is probably to settle on the draw in the match outright.
27th September 2019 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
West Brom are the only team in the second tier who have yet to taste defeat in the Championship this season. Will they be able to extend that run to an eighth match? They are favourites at the Hawthorns for their clash with Huddersfield over the weekend. The Terriers are in big early trouble with just one point from seven games. Read our West Brom v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
West Brom 13/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 17th, 2019 at 3.21 a.m.)
The Baggies are W3 D4 for the season and are starting the weekend up in the top six. They will just be hoping for more wins to be coming their way. There looks more than a reasonable chance of them getting something going here in terms of three points. The Baggies have a W1 D2 record at home this season in the division. Their first home success came in a thrilling 3-2 win over Blackburn. All three of their wins have been by a one-goal margin.
All four of their drawn games this campaign ended in a 1-1 scoreline. So there are some decent trends there. West Brom haven’t managed to take a clean sheet yet this season, but they have been level at 0-0 at the halftime break in two of their three home fixtures. Surprisingly the Baggies have conceded the opening goal in six of their seven league fixtures. But the question here is, are they likely to get troubled too much by an out of form Huddersfield?
Huddersfield won both league meetings back in the 2017/18 EPL
The Terriers are unbeaten in three league games against West Brom
West Brom have won just one of the last six league meetings with Huddersfield
Both teams have scored in two of the last eight games
The Terriers are having a nightmare time of things. It is a shocking D1 L6 record which they have taken in the Championship this season. As if Premier League relegation last season wasn’t bad enough for them, now this. So there are some major problems for them and Barnsley are the only team in the league to have scored fewer goals than the five that the Terriers have managed. Stoke are the only team to have conceded more goals than them.
The one point that Huddserfeld have earned this season happened out on the road. That was in a 1-1 draw at QPR in their first road game of the season. Huddersfield have scored just one goal in their last three games. The Terriers had scored in each of their opening four games of the season, but those goals are drying up a bit. Four of the five goals that the Terriers have scored in this campaign have come in the second half of games. They have conceded 9 of their 14 goals this season in the second period of fixtures as well.
The Baggies should get themselves a comfortable three points on the board in this one. They have missed the mark a few times in failing to get wins, but they should be able to see off the ailing Terriers at the Hawthorns. Back the Baggies to win by a one-goal margin.

The Cottagers are sitting inside the top six, but they have managed to take just one point from their last two games. So they will be looking to rebuild after the international break. They get a tough game though as the unbeaten West Brom pay a visit to Craven Cottage, the Baggies starting in the top six also. Read our Fulham v West Brom betting tips for more.
Fulham even money
West Brom 13/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 10th, 2019 at 12:31 p.m.)
Just when Fulham looked to be getting things together with a three-match winning streak going, it fell apart a little for them just before the international break. They suffered a home loss against Nottingham Forest before being held to a 1-1 draw at Cardiff. That leaves the Cottagers, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, with a W3 D1 L2 record in this season’s Championship.
Incidentally, the loss against Forest snapped an 18 match undefeated streak of home form in the second tier that Fulham were on. A positive is that they have scored seven goals in their three home games (W2 L1) and their loss at Barnsley on the opening weekend is the only game in which they have failed to score.
The Cottagers have opened the scoring in two of their three home games. Fulham have also been leading at half time in two of their three at Craven Cottage this season. Top scorer for the Cottagers is Aleksandar Mitrovic with five goals already.
This is the first meeting since the 2013/14 Premier League
Four of the last six meetings have ended in a draw
Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven games against West Brom (W3 D4)
The Cottagers are undefeated in their last twelve home fixtures against West Brom
West Brom were expected to be one of the leading contenders for promotion to the top flight this season. Just like Fulham. They have looked the part for that as well with an unbeaten W3 D3 record under their belt. So a very solid start has been made by the Baggies who have taken a W2 D1 record away from home. Their two wins away from the Hawthorns were by a 2-1 scoreline over Nottingham Forest and Luton. Their draw came in 1-1 results against Derby in their last road game.
Both teams have scored in all six of West Brom’s league games this season, so that’s a decent betting trend to look at. All three of West Brom’s goals which they have conceded away from home have been in the first half of matches. Despite their unbeaten start to this season, West Brom have managed to open the scoring in just one of their six games. In each of their three road games, they conceded the opening goal inside the first fifteen minutes of action. They clearly have something to work on there.
This is going to be an interesting game because both of these have goals in them. That makes it a pretty tough game to call because both look likely to concede as well. The best option that we can see is the draw in the match outright. Neither look like losing.

Saturday’s Championship action is going to start with a bang as Derby play host to West Brom. The Rams haven’t won since the opening weekend of the season, so need to get something going. Meanwhile, the Baggies have started the season strongly, unbeaten across their first four games. Read our Derby v West Brom betting tips for more.
West Brom 9/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2019 at 6:35 p.m.)
The Rams had their first taste of defeat this season as they suffered a 2-1 home loss against Bristol City in midweek. That has left them with just one point from their two home games played and just one goal scored. So are they set for a difficult season at Pride Park? Too early to tell that of course, and a win in this one would give things a totally different perspective.
Derby opened the season with a win at Huddersfield and then it is D2 L1 since then. They played out a 0-0 draw with Swansea in their one home game this season. Martyn Waghorn and Tom Lawerence have two goals each for the Rams this season, while it was Jack Marriott who got a consolation for them against Bristol City in midweek. Three of their five games this season have made it over 2.5 goals.
The Rams won both league meetings with West Brom last season
Derby are on a three-match winning streak against the Baggies in all competitions
Each of the last five meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals
West Brom are winless in six against the Rams in all competitions
It has been a steady opening for West Brom, taking eight points from their first four games. Their midweek action saw them play out a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns with Reading. That’s both of their home games this season having finished as 1-1 draws. But as a positive for their backers this weekend, is the fact that they have won their two away games. The trend there is that both wins have been by a 2-1 scoreline.
Of course, all that adds up to no clean sheet from West Brom this season so it’s probably worth a look at both teams to score. The two goals that the Baggies have shipped away from home in this campaign have both been in the first half of matches. Grady Diangana (2) is their top scorer following his second-half brace against Luton last weekend. A win at Pride Park would be a superb way to keep their early away form going.
They have been close calls, but West Brom are carrying away form and with Derby not up and running with a win yet at home, the away win has some appeal. Either way, this has the look of being a high-scoring and thoroughly entertaining lunchtime affair.

West Brom have come out strongly this season with seven points from their three games played. That is more than double the amount that the Royals have managed to get on the board. After losing their first two games of the season, Reading took a positive result on the weekend. Will, that kick start their campaign? Read our West Brom v Reading betting tips for more.
West Brom 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 19th, 2019 at 5:22 p.m.)
As expected, West Brom have looked strong this season. Their two wins in this campaign happened out on the road. Both were a 2-1 successes over Nottingham Forest and then Luton. In their one home game so far this season in the second tier, they played out a 1-1 draw will Millwall. So that’s both teams having scored in all three of their games.
The Baggies will be happy with their goal output, not so much their defence. Grady Diangana was the hero of the day for them with three goals in three minutes out at Luton on the weekend, which saw the Baggies recover from being 1-0 down at the break. West Brom were a good strong home team last season in the division posting a W12 D7 L4 record at the Hawthorns.
West Brom earned four points against Reading in last season’s Championship
The Baggies are W19 D10 L13 in the overall head to head against the Royals
Five of the last six meetings have ended in a home win
3 of the last 4 meetings at the Hawthorns have produced at least four goals
The Royals had their first taste of success in the new season with a 3-0 home win over Cardiff on the weekend. That was a thumping win for them, and a little surprising too after having suffered back to back defeats against Sheffield Wednesday and Hull. Not only a win but a clean sheet will have been a massive boost for them as well. Especially after having conceded five in their opening two games.
Can they follow it up with anything out of this tough away game? The Royals had a really difficult season in the 2018/19 campaign. They won only two away games (D11 L10) and averaged under a goal per game on their travels. With their loss out at Hull in their one road fixture this season, they need to find their away-touch quickly. Reading finished fifth from bottom in last season’s Championship.
The Baggies look in fine nick early on and at the Hawthorns, they should be winning games like this. Reading, as they have proven already, don’t look a particularly big threat. West Brom to win by we think it’s worth considering over 2.5 goals.

The newly-promoted Luton are still looking for their first win back up in the second tier of English football. Will they be able to land it this weekend as they play host to West Brom? The Baggies have opened their new campaign while having taken four points from their first two fixtures. The visitors will kick-off as favourites at Kenilworth Road. Read our Luton v West Brom betting tips for more.
West Brom 8/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 13th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.)
The Hatters got their Championship season off to a good start with a home draw against Middlesbrough. They almost grabbed another point out at Cardiff last weekend but conceded in the 90th minute to fall 2-1. The goals which they have managed to put on the board will be a positive for them having come up a tier. All four of their league goals this season have been scored by different players.
With both of their games so far having gone over 2.5 goals, that could be an angle for betting on this game. The Hatters were so good at Kenilworth Road last season in League One. They were unbeaten for the entire campaign on home soil posting a W16 D7 L0 record. Survival in the Championship is probably going to be all based on what they can do at home. They do look to have enough about them to be competitive. This is another tough game coming up though.
The Baggies took a 1-0 home win over Luton in last season’s EFL Cup
West Brom are undefeated in their last five against Luton
The Hatters last beat West Brom in 1996
Both previous Championship meetings went over 2.5 goals
The Baggies are expected to push for promotion once again in the Championship. They have the resources and strong squad in place to do that. They have opened with four points from their first two games of this campaign. They beat Nottingham Forest out on the road on the opening weekend of the season, before pulling out a 1-1 draw with Millwall at the Hawthorns last weekend.
Away from home last season West Brom handled themselves well enough in the Championship, posting a W11 D4 L8 record on their travels. They averaged around 1.5 goals per road fixture. The thing bothering them will be the goals that they have given up already this season in the campaign. Given that both teams have scored in each of the last five league meetings between Luton and West Brom at Kenilworth Road, it could be an entertaining match up.
It has not quite clicked for Luton so far in the championship and the goals which they have given up will be of some early concern to them. West Brom look the stronger of the two and the away win ticks all of the boxes for our prediction in this one.
