What Trueform says for Leeds vs West Brom
Leeds and West Brom will both be going all out for a win to boost their automatic promotion hopes at Elland Road on Friday night.
No team has claimed more home victories than United in the Championship, but Albion have the best away record, so this is a tough one to call.
However, we just favour the Whites to come out on top at 23/20 for our opening Leeds vs West Brom prediction.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds stayed third in the table, two points behind Norwich and below Sheffield United on goal difference, following Tuesday’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at QPR.
Having dominated most of the first half, United were undone by Luke Freeman’s deft finish three minutes into the second period and failed to respond.
However, Marcelo Bielsa insisted there is no prospect of his team running out of steam in the promotion race.
He declared: “What our team has shown in every game is that we have an excess of energy.
“If you look at the figures, you can see that if there is a problem that this team has, it is not a lack of energy.”
The Whites had previously picked up 2-1 home wins over Swansea and Bolton and Elland Road will again be buzzing for a big game under lights.
Looking at the Leeds vs West Brom odds, we reckon 8/1 for a repeat of that scoreline is good value.
Last Leeds line-up: Casilla, Ayling, Cooper, Jansson, Alioski, Hernandez, Harrison, Phillips, Klich, Bamford, Roberts.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom have won their last four away games in this division to reach double figures for the season, so we’re not underestimating the threat they pose.
However, Albion looked a tired team when beaten 1-0 by Sheffield United at The Hawthorns last weekend, leaving them four points adrift of Leeds in fourth.
Darren Moore commented: “I said to the lads that I had no complaints at all, because they gave everything – I just think that maybe it was a game too far.
“I know us and we were just a little bit short in terms of getting that final push towards the end.
“We got in some really good, threatening positions but we just couldn’t get that elusive touch to get back into the game.
“We were just lacking that bit of extra spark really, which was needed in a game like this.”
The Baggies may well benefit from a midweek break, but we still fear they could struggle to cope with United’s high-tempo tactics.
Let’s add 11/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game to our Leeds vs West Brom betting tips.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Gibbs, Dawson, Hegazy, Holgate, Livermore, Phillips, Barry, Harper, Gayle, Rodriguez.
QPR 1-0 LEEDS
WEST BROM 0-1 Sheff Utd
Head-to-head: West Brom 4-1 Leeds
