West Brom suffered their first defeat under Tony Pulis last weekend, going down 3-0 at home to Tottenham and bookies aren’t particularly confident that the Baggies will bounce back immediately, BetVictor making them outsiders at 21/10 to pick up a maximum haul from this weekend’s crucial trip to Burnley.
The Clarets are narrow favourites at 13/8 with William Hill but Albion tend to look to keep things tight on the road and that approach could prompt punters to opt for bet365’s 9/4 about an inconclusive affair at Turf Moor, where it’s 15/2 (betway) to finish goalless.
That would be a good result for those punters backing the clash to be all square at the end of each half (7/2, Stan James) while for those anticipating goals, BetVictor offer 11/2 about a 1-1 scoreline and a score draw is 10/3 courtesy of Paddy Power.
Stan James have handed Pulis’s men a goal start in the handicaps at odds of 1/2 and they’re 11/10 in Skybet’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market but West Brom have already beaten Burnley once this term and will be confident of completing the double overt the Clarets, who have lost their last three.
A repeat of the 4-0 scoreline from the reverse fixture is one for the ambitious of course, at odds of 125/1 (BetVictor) but bet365’s 15/2 about the Baggies grabbing the only goal catches the eye and it’s 10/3 at Stan James for the visitors to nick it by a one-goal margin.
West Brom to beat Burnley by one – 10/3 (Stan James)
