West Brom picked up their first victory of the season in impressive fashion last weekend, upsetting the odds to collect all three points at Tottenham and bookmakers believe the Baggies are capable of franking that form as they take on newly promoted Burnley in front of the television cameras on Sunday.
Stan James have installed Alan Irvine’s men as 21/20 favourites to land another maximum haul while the winless Clarets are 10/3 outsiders with BetVictor and it’s 12/5 courtesy of Ladbrokes for honours to be even.
The visitors have shared the spoils in three successive outings so the stalemate is set to prove popular and as that trio of fixtures have all ended goalless, bet365 can expect support for the 8/1 they post against another 0-0 for Sean Dyche’s troops.
That would be good news for punters backing both halves to prove inconclusive at 17/4 (BetVictor) and Albion are available at 2/5 in Stan James’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market, a wager that might appeal to cautious home supporters.
However, on the back of last Sunday’s result, most Hawthorns regulars will be feeling a touch more optimistic and in a match that’s 7/10 (Winner.com) to produce fewer than three goals, Irvine’s side are decent value at 6/1 via bet365 to shade it 1-0.
Any West Brom triumph by a one-goal margin is an 11/4 chance at Skybet, Paddy Power offer 21/10 about a Baggies lead at the end of each half and BetVictor mark 11/5 against a victory ‘to nil’ for the Albion.
