What Trueform says for West Brom vs Leeds
West Brom have fallen to seventh in the Championship after a rocky run of results and would no doubt be happy just to steady the ship with a draw when hosting leaders Leeds.
United went back to the top of the table thanks to a hard-fought win at Wigan last weekend and have only lost once in seven matches.
This may be a good time to consolidate ahead of two home games, though, so 12/5 for a Hawthorns stalemate makes sense as our first West Brom vs Leeds prediction.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
Hull goalkeeper David Marshall did not have a save to make when West Brom went down 1-0 at KCOM Stadium.
Head coach Darren Moore declared: “It was a performance that we’ve dropped below the level we’ve set in recent weeks and months. A performance I was not happy with.
“When the opportunities did come to hurt them or to use the ball wisely and cleverly, we didn’t do that. I’ve got no excuses.”
That result meant the Baggies have picked up just one point from their last four fixtures, when previously drawing 1-1 with Blackburn at this venue.
An earlier 4-1 home loss to Derby was initially regarded as just a blip, but subsequent events suggest that was more like a reality check following a free-scoring stretch which brought seven wins in 10 outings.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will be the much happier manager after Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe netted in a 2-1 come-from-behind success at Wigan on Sunday.
However, the veteran head coach showed no signs of resting on his laurels following that fourth away triumph of the season.
He said: “If we look at the chances we created, chances they created, possession…we should have scored more goals.
“But it was very important to win, especially having only drawn at home in our last game.”
Bielsa is canny enough to know that the Championship campaign is invariably full of twists and turns, so sharing the spoils with a promotion rival on the road would be another positive outcome.
“There are a number of teams near the top of the league who are at the same level,” he added.
“In order to be top of the pile, we have to make a difference against teams at the top.
“We did that at the beginning of the season, but we stopped doing that.
“If we want to reach the goals we have set, we have to show more regularity in gaining points.”
United have drawn six of their last 13 league matches and four of those finished 1-1, so 6/1 for that scoreline completes our West Brom vs Leeds betting tips.
