Table toppers West Brom are unbeaten in the Championship this season and playing well enough to take a point off title favourites Leeds at Elland Road.
United have found it hard to beat other early pacesetters and are coming off a frustrating defeat at Charlton over the weekend.
We reckon 11/4 for a Tuesday night stalemate is good value for our initial Leeds vs West Brom prediction.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds ended up with 72 per cent of possession and had a total of 19 shots to Charlton’s three but left London with nothing to show for their dominance.
Macauley Bonne was credited with the game’s only goal when the striker was in the right place at the right time to deflect a punch by goalkeeper Kiko Casilla over the line in the 32nd minute.
Marcelo Bielsa insisted: “We had possession and controlled the game. Our players were better than their players. The difference between the two sides was big.
“But we didn’t impose our superiority and that was the reason for what happened.”
United are still nicely placed, just two points off the summit, but losing to sixth-placed Charlton was another setback against a team doing well this term.
Leeds also lost to Swansea at Elland Road and were held to a draw by Nottingham Forest on home turf, while Derby left with a point in the last match here.
Looking at the Leeds vs West Brom odds, we like 27/4 for a third 1-1 draw in five league games at this venue.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom stormed to the summit with a smooth 2-0 success at QPR, where teenager Nathan Ferguson and Matheus Pereira each scored their first goal for the club.
“This is the best performance that we played so far,” beamed Slaven Bilic. “Straight from the start, we were on the front foot. They didn’t have a sniff.
“I’m really pleased. Of course, we can get better and it’s still early days, but I have to say the lads have been excellent.”
The Baggies have not had an easy schedule on the road so far either, winning 2-1 at third-placed Forest and drawing 1-1 away to fellow promotion hopefuls Fulham and Derby.
Albion have hit the target in all nine league games and kept just one clean sheet, so 7/2 for a score draw is added to our Leeds vs West Brom betting tips.
Charlton 1-0 LEEDS
QPR 0-2 WEST BROM – Nathan Ferguson, Matheus Pereira
Head-to-head: Leeds 4-0 West Brom, West Brom 4-1 Leeds
