West Brom News and Form
The Baggies suffered a bit of a surprise defeat last weekend as they were beaten 1-0 at Wigan. They were undefeated in their seven games previous to that though and they still have home form going for them. They are on a five-match winning streak of league form at the Hawthorns and they have scored at least two goals in each of those wins. They have averaged 3.3 goals per game at home this term. Despite that great form they have only managed the one clean sheet at home so far this season and with that in mind a West Brom 2-1 correct score option is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm).
83% of West Brom’s home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. Therefore for West Brom v Derby betting tips, over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). Each of West Brom’s last three home wins have been by a margin of at least two goals. Striker Dwight Gayle has certainly been enjoying home games for the Baggies as he has netted in each of their last five league home games, bagging a total of seven goals in that run. Gayle is at 6/5 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). This will be the first home game this season for West Brom against a side currently in the top nine.

Derby News and Form
Derby weren’t showing a lot of winning form over their recent form, but they shook that off to bank a fantastic 2-1 home success over the dangerous Sheffield United on the weekend. That really should have been a big lift for them but their away form is still a bit questionable. Derby are only W1 D1 L3 in their last five road games in the Championship and they have scored just one goal in their last three. In total, they have only managed to net six times in their away games, but their defence, which has only conceded seven road goals, has kept them in matches.
Of the half dozen away goals that Derby have come up with so far, two-thirds of them have come up in the second half of matches. They are on the lookout for their first clean sheet away from Pride Park this season and none of Derby’s away games this season have been settled by a margin of more than one goal. West Brom to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). They have yet to pay a visit to any side who are currently sat in the top nine in the division and so this will be a big test for them. They have posted an overall record of W2 D1 L3 this season on their travels. Both teams have scored in all but one of their last five games so back in the both teams to score option isn’t a bad proposition.
Who will win – West Brom v Derby Predictions
West Brom have the appeal to come away with the three points in the fixture here. They have some good home momentum behind them while Derby at the end of the day, had a good win on the weekend, but that is their only success in their last four. West Brom to win to nil.
