Betting Tip: West Brom Win
This is a huge game for both sides on Sunday, it’s getting to must win territory for West Brom whereas Newcastle are certainly looking over their shoulders at the moment.
The Toon Army sit just three points above Fulham now and their woeful away form is mainly to blame. To make matters worse, attacking trio Miguel Almiron, Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson are all ruled out for a number of weeks. It’s leaving them bereft of quality and creativity in the final third and confidence must be low.
West Brom had picked up a couple of decent results before their midweek defeat to Everton, but they have been much more competitive. That being said, wins are becoming a must for the Baggies and former Newcastle gaffer Sam Allardyce will have pinpointed this one as a three points they need to get.
I fancy them to do the business here in what should be a feisty affair. Odds of 6/4 look decent enough against an awful Newcastle away side.
Betting Tip: Mbaye Diagne to Score Anytime
One man who has made them a bit more of a threat is loan signing Mbaye Diagne who is the ideal Allardyce front man. He may have only scored one so far but he’s had plenty of great chances. He will be in the box more than any West Brom player and is an aerial threat from set pieces. He’s 9/4 to score anytime and if he gets the chances he has in the past few weeks he is likely to put one away sooner or later.
West Brom vs Newcastle Odds
This is a six-pointer for Sam Allardyce's side and the bookies believe West Brom are going to win this one, with best odds of 6/4.
