Buoyed off the back of two straight wins, Manchester United travel to West Brom craving another fix of maximum points.
A third success on the spin for Louis van Gaal’s men pays out at 3/4, with the draw on offer at a sizeable 3/1, while an even beefier 18/5 says the Baggies will do the business.
The Red Devils may be winless on the road so far, but their near-evens odds are well worth a gamble, with these factors all in agreement that the spoils are set to be snared by the visiting party.
West Brom have won just twice when playing on a Monday since 2009/10.
This equates to 13 fixtures in total, meaning they’ve failed to prevail on 11 instances.
A promotion-winning Championship campaign is also included in this sample, a season where they obviously won much more often that they lost.
Their overall Premier League record on a Monday doesn’t make for great reading either; they’ve played 18, won two, drawn seven, lost nine.
The Throstles were bested just twice at the Hawthorns against teams to finish in last term’s top seven.
Man Utd account for half of the teams to prevail at the Baggies’ base camp, a ground where they haven’t lost a league game since 1984.
Their last five visits to this corner of the west Midlands have yielded 17 strikes.
With West Brom shipping at least two goals against every top-tier foe they’ve faced on their own patch this term with the exception of Burnley, the away team and their superstar-studded frontline can expect to inflate their goals for column somewhat here.
Robin van Persie loves playing West Brom.
One of these attackers poised to fill his boots is Red Devils stand-in skipper RVP.
The former Arsenal man has notched four times and assisted another two in his last seven top-tier outings against Albion.
Having got off the mark against West Ham two games back, expect to see him augment his seasonal haul with a price of 4/1 saying he notches the opener.
