The English Championship game between West Brom and Sheffield United features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Wednesday August 18.

Bet Of The Day August 18 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

We’re heading to the English Championship for today’s best bet as West Brom play host to struggling Sheffield United.

West Brom have started the season in encouraging fashion, picking up four points from their two games, earning a 2-2 away draw with fellow heavyweights Bournemouth before claiming a 3-2 win at home over Luton.

There might be some concerns surrounding West Brom’s defence considering they’ve leaked two goals in both games, but given their attack is firing on all cylinders, it won’t be too much of a worry at this stage.

Indeed, West Brom have scored 2+ goals in four of their last five home games in the Championship and we’ve got confidence in them outscoring their out-of-form rivals in this clash.

Sheffield United have enduring a rough start to life in the Championship after being relegated from the Premier League last season, failing to score in a 1-0 home loss to Birmingham and 0-0 away draw with Swansea.

When you consider Sheffield had a league-low average of just 0.53 goals per game in the EPL last season, there’s evidence to suggest they will struggle in the final third again in the Championship.

Callum Robinson has made a bright start to the season, scoring in both games for West Brom, and if their attack can continue to flourish, they should have too many goals in them for Sheffield at home.

Key Points

  • West Brom have taken four points from their first two games of the season
  • Sheffield United have failed to score in both of their games this season
  • Sheffield scored an average of just 0.53 goals last season in the EPL
  • West Brom have scored 2+ goals in four of their last five Championship home game
  • West Brom are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions
