The clash between West Brom and Wolves at the Hawthorns throws up a huge betting opportunity given the two teams’ form in the formative stages of the season.
West Brom have scored more goals in the first 15 minutes of matches than any side in the Premier League this season with four, while the three goals Wolves have conceded in the first 15 minutes of games is more than any team save Bolton.
As such, odds of 5/4 on West Brom to score the first goal of the first half seem too good to miss, especially when used in conjunction with the £25 free bet available to new bwin customers who sign up for an account.
A successful £25 free bet on the Baggies to score the first goal of the first half in Sunday’s Black Country derby would return £56.25.
Another option would be for West Brom to establish a first-half lead at odds of 3/2, which looks appealing given all of the goals Roy Hodgson’s side have scored in the Premier League this season have come before the interval.
Indeed, West Brom’s first half form would place them ninth in the table rather than the 17th spot they occupy when the full 90 minutes is taken into consideration.
Meanwhile, Wolves have let in seven of the ten goals they have conceded before the interval, suggesting they are likely to go into their half time team talk with Mick McCarthy at a disadvantage.
As for the final result, West Brom are evens favourites to pick up all three points, with a Wolves win priced at 14/5.
However, given both sides have struggled for form of late – with each recording a solitary win in their last six matches – a draw could hold the best value at 9/4, suggesting the second half could see a Wolves fightback.
