Three successive defeats have prompted disgruntled West Brom fans to voice their concerns regarding Alan Irvine’s management of the club, but the Scot will appease the dissenters by leading the Baggies to victory over their Ham namesakes.
No bookie in the land is offering a better price than bwin’s 6/4 that says the west Midlanders snare the Hawthorns spoils, while West Ham are on offer at 9/4 next to the 2/1 draw.
The Irons have undoubtedly been one of the most impressive outfits in the Premier League this season, but despite this, punters are advised to steer well clear of the latter pair of wagers in favour of the shortest price of the bunch.

Invest it in the Throstles at 6/4 and land £45 profit if they snap their losing streak by claiming maximum points at the expense of Sam Allardyce’s side.
Here’s how they’re going to do it:
West Brom have a fantastic recent record against London foes.
Visiting the Albion is a dangerous game if one resides in the nation’s capital.
Prior to their 1-0 reverse against Arsenal at the weekend, the Baggies had gone seven matches at base camp unbeaten when facing clubs with a compass direction for a postcode.
Of these, five finished level, but one of their two wins fell when facing their forthcoming opponent and the Irons’ leaky road defence promises a repeat result.
West Ham haven’t kept a clean sheet away in 12 games.
The run stretches back to early February, when the east Londoners visited WBA’s neighbours Aston Villa.
They’ve lost seven of the 12 sojourns since.
Only two of these came this season, although four of their six this term have seen them ship at least twice.
West Brom have lost just once on the homestead this campaign against a team that finished outside last season’s top five.
Newcastle are this solitary outfit, with their win coming slap bang in the middle of one of those bizarre, completely arbitrary imperious streaks they enjoy from time to time.
Taking away games into account, Swansea are the only other team to finish outside the aforementioned bracket to get the better of the Baggies in the league so watch out West Ham.
