TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 15
We’re heading to the English Championship for today’s best bet as high-flying West Brom play host to struggling Birmingham at The Hawthorns.
West Brom are sitting pretty in second spot on the ladder having lost just one of their 11 games this season, while they are also undefeated in their last 10 league games at home.
Having scored 20 goals in those fixtures this season, West Brom will be confident of registering a routine victory over a Birmingham side who were in shambles heading into the international break.
Indeed, Birmingham have lost four and drawn 0-0 with Preston in their last five outings, failing to score a single goal in their last four straight games.
Birmingham have lost 3-0 to Nottingham, 2-0 to QPR, 3-0 to Peterborough and 4-1 to Fulham, so we’ll be backing West Brom to cover the -1 handicap here.
West Brom have a great record against Birmingham, going unbeaten in the last eight meetings between the teams and winning five of those.
When the likes of Nottingham Forest and Peterborough are beating you by three-goal margins, you know you’re in trouble.
There’s nothing to suggest Birmingham are ready to put up a fight here, so backing West Brom at -1 looks solid value in this clash.
- West Brom are second on the ladder and unbeaten in 10 of their 11 games this season
- West Brom are unbeaten in their last eight games vs Birmingham
- Birmingham are winless in their last five outings
- Birmingham have failed to score a goal in their last four straight matches
- Birmingham have lost by more than one goal in all six of their defeats this season
