Goals look on the cards at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.
West Brom v Watford - Saturday 15:00
West Brom will have been disappointed to only draw with Hull following their 4-0 trouncing of Burnley the week before, especially after they led at the break and had chances to restore their lead late on. Michael Dawson’s equalizer denied Tony Pulis’ side a third consecutive victory, though the point nudged them up one place to 9th in the table regardless, one point behind Watford in 8th.
The Hornets were poor last weekend against Stoke in front of their own fans, and didn't look up for the physical battle as their midfield was overrun, particularly by Stoke’s impressive Giannelli Imbula. It wasn’t the first time this season either, with the performance reminiscent of their defeat at Burnley earlier in the campaign, whilst they capitulated in their last road trip as they lost 6-1 to Liverpool.
With the two sides directly above Watford and West Brom (Man Utd and Everton) playing each other on Sunday, a victory here could catapult one of these sides into sixth place, however unlikely that sounds. With both sides sitting in the top-half, there is no reason to think they won’t aim for the win so we think this game could have goals in it. Both teams have scored in seven of Albion’s last nine and there have been at least three goals in four of their last five matches, whilst at home there have been at least four goals in three of their last four. We’re backing over 3.5 goals at a fruitful 4.33.
