West Brom have only managed to take the one point from their last three Championship fixtures and need to get some momentum back. Their slump was enough to see boss Darren Moore sacked. They play host to Swansea in midweek, with the Welsh club having lost four of their last six. Can the Baggies make the most of home advantage? Read our West Brom v Swansea betting tips for more.
West Brom 10/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)
West Brom have taken one point from their last three played in the Championship and that was from a tie against bottom side Ipswich on the weekend. At home this season they are W7 D7 L4 but their last home success came back on Boxing Day. They are just D4 L2 in their last six league outings at the Hawthorns which is a huge drop in home form to what they produced over the first half of the season. They have consistently scored well though as they are still averaging over 2 goals per home fixture.
West Brom have only taken two clean sheets at home this campaign and both teams have scored in 83% of matches at the Hawthorns. They have not managed to take a clean sheet in any of their last on home soil. Their last two at home have both ended under 2.5 goals. Of the goals which they have produced at the Hawthorns, 68% of them have been after the half time break. The Baggies are the second highest scorers in this season’s Championship having scored in 94% of all their matches played.
The Baggies earned a 2-1 success at the Liberty Stadium in November
Things are even at two wins each and a draw in the last five meetings
West Brom are undefeated in their last four at home against the Swans
Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings
The Swans lost 1-0 at Norwich on the weekend which was their third defeat in their last four (W1). They have been having a rough time of things on their travels because that defeat at Carrow Road was their fourth in a row on their travels. It leaves them at W5 D4 L9 away from the Liberty Stadium this season. Sania have scored at an average of just over a goal per game away from home in the second tier.
The Swansea have earned one point from their last five away games, winning just one of their last seven on the road. They have not managed to collect a clean sheet in any of their last nine away games. Swansea have been level at the halftime break in exactly half of their road fixtures this season. All nine of those half time draws away from home were 0-0 score lines. The Welsh club have conceded 61% of their away goals in the second half of games.
The Baggies have really been struggling to find their winning touch on home soil and the Swans may test their patience. But because Swansea have been poor on the road, a narrow home win by a one-goal margin for West Brom fits.

Managerless and bottom of the Premier League. That is where West Brom are at right now as they can’t wait to put this nightmare of a season behind them. Their long losing streak continued last weekend against Burnley and safety is a long way off. Swansea still have their own relegation concerns starting only three points above the drop zone.
West Brom 6/4, Swansea 2/1, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 9:47 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
The Baggies will try and snap an eight-match losing streak of Premier League form when they step out against Burnley on the weekend. It’s been shockingly bad from them and the defeats have kept rolling in despite them having scored in four of their last five games home and away. The Baggies have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their last eight games and because of that over 2.5 goals at BetVictor may well be worth a flutter at 7/5 odds. The Baggies have lost their last four at the Hawthorns, conceding at least two goals in each of those defeats and scoring in each of them. They have actually scored in each of their last six home games, so it is their defence which is just letting them down badly. Both teams to score may have some appeal for the game as well as that has happened in four of West Brom’s last five games. Their overall home record for the season is W2 D7 L7 and they aren’t going to just keep on losing. Things will inevitably change, will Alan Pardew’s departure spark something to life with the club?
Swansea are not clear of relegation worries yet but they have lost only two of their last nine league games. Both defeats in that sequence were on the road though and they have failed to win any of their last five away from the Liberty Stadium. The Swans have only won twice on their travels this season (D5 L9) and they have only managed to come up with the ten goals in their sixteen road games at an average of 0.6 goals per game. Just 38% of their road games have managed to get above 2.5 goals and if this one goes that way it could be trouble for the Swans. They have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two road games. Of the goals that they have managed to score on their travels, 60% of them have been after the after half time break. They have only been ahead at half time twice away from home so far this season. Jordan Ayew is the only Swansea player to have managed more than one away goal for them this season and he is still suspended. Tammy Abraham who came in the second half of last weekend’s’ loss against Manchester United and impressed is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option with BetVictor* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018).
Swansea collected three points when they hosted West Brom back in December. That is back to back wins they have collected over the Baggies in the Premier League now and have lost just one of their last five against them too (W3 D1 L1). So they have a bit of form, but the Baggies are unbeaten in their last three at home against Swansea, winning two.
Swansea are not rocking along away from home so maybe there is a chance here for the Baggies to at least stop the losing rot. A point would keep the Swans out of the drop zone and on the road, they would probably settle for that.

The Baggies were edged out in a 1-0 defeat at league leaders Chelsea on the weekend, but can be pleased with their progress lately as that loss snapped a four match unbeaten streak that they were on in the top flight. This looks to be a good chance for them to bounce back immediately as they play host to the relegation-threatened Swansea. The Swans landed a win over Sunderland on the weekend at the Liberty Stadium, but their away form, particularly after their shocker at White Hart Lane recently, remains a huge concern for them. West Brom are 21/20 for the win, with the draw at 5/2 and Swansea at 3/1.

The Baggies have been doing alright lately with a W3 D1 L1 record on the board in their last five. That loss was against Chelsea on the weekend at Stamford Bridge, so nothing to be overly concerned about for West Brom. The Baggies have won their last two Premier League home games, scoring seven goals in those two games. So they have been going well in front of goal lately too and over 2.5 goals in this game at Bet365 will return a price of even money. They have only lost one of their last four at home against Swansea, however, looking at the recent head to head between the two of them, the Baggies have lost six of their previous 10 Premier League games against the Welsh outfit. But West Brom are running fine at home right now and they have the chance to win three successive Premier League home games for the first time since March last year.
West Brom have scored 73 goals in 71 Premier League games under Tony Pulis but have netted 12 goals in their last five Premier League home games (W3 D1 L1) and in those three wins they netted at least three goals. Trading in the anytime goalscorer market for West Brom is Salomon Rondon at a price of 6/5, with Nacer Chadli at 2/1. Chadli has actually netted in two of his last three league games against Swansea. Consistency has been key for the Baggies lately as they have put out the same starting eleven in each of their last five league games. There actually haven’t been may clean sheets from them this season, just the one in their last twelve games played so both teams to score at Bet365 in this match up will return a price of 4/5. Running in the correct score marketer there is a price of 6/1 on 1-1 result happening.
Swansea may have landed back to back home wins in the top flight but their away form is a massive concern for them. They have posted a W1 D1 L5 record on the road and they have taken just one point in the last twelve available to them away from home in the Premier League. Swansea were hammered 5-0 at White Hart Lane in their last away game and while this isn’t likely to end up in a rout, Swansea are still likely to struggle to get a win on the board. The Swans have only failed to score once in their 10 previous Premier League clashes with the Baggies, which was in February last year. So far Bob Bradley has been in charge of four away games in the top flight with Swansea and in those four away games they have shipped 12 goals. Gylfi Siggurdson has four goals in his last eight and is a price of 9/4 to score in this one which is the same price as Fernando Llorente.
The Baggies look a decent shot to go and claim the three points in this one. They have been going fine recently and their away loss against Chelsea can be written off. They have been producing the goals at the Hawthorns to suggest that they are going to be comfortable enough in this one, but look for both teams to score because clean sheets have been hard to come by for the Baggies.
