When you analyse the historical and current form trends for when West Bromwich Albion travel to Manchester City; two bets stick out like Peter Crouch riding in the Grand National.
Firstly, City to win without conceding a goal followed up by Sergio Aguero getting on the scoresheet.
With that at the forefront of our punting minds, taking a chance on the hosts to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 in the multiple correct score market at 31/10 and Sergio Aguero to score in a City win at 7/10 strikes as a betting strategy that should yield some sexy returns.

The hosts are trading at a very strong 1/5 to win in Manchester, with Pepe Mel’s charges at 21/2 to win just their seventh game of the season. The draw is a 23/4 chance.
The Citizens have failed to score in only one of their last 66 Premier League home games (scoring 177 in that spell).
Goals are guaranteed when City are in town and only Jose Mourinho has managed to tactically nullify the sassy Blue Moon merchants at home in the last four years in the Premier League.
Under Manuel Pellegrini, they are the top home scorers in the league this season, scoring three more (54) than rampant Liverpool with a game in hand.
Man City have beaten West Brom to nil in the last three fixtures between the two at the Etihad Stadium.
It’s been a severe case of Déjà vu for the travelling Baggies faithful when rocking up in the blue half of Manchester of late, suffering 1-0, 4-0 and 3-0 beatings in the last three seasons.
Only Fulham have kept fewer clean sheets this season than Mel’s side, who have been beaten to nil by Crystal Palace, Southampton and Manchester United in 2014.
Sergio Aguero has scored three goals in four previous Premier League games versus West Brom.
Pellegrini is only easing his star man back into action after two months on the sidelines but following getting 57 minutes under his belt against Sunderland, it’s likely he’ll be nearing full capacity for this clash.
The Argentine sensation has scored 26 goals in just 30 appearances this season in all competitions and likes nothing better than feasting on West Brom’s sloppy defending.
