West Brom v Burnley - Monday 20:00, Sky Sports 1
West Brom became the first team since September 2015 to beat Leicester at the King Power Stadium, but at home Tony Pulis’ side have struggled. They’ve only won once in nine at the Hawthorns, losing five, failing to score in five of these too. In addition, since the appointment of Pulis in January 2015 West Brom have only managed one victory over promoted sides in 10 attempts, losing three of the last five. Four of the last six were goalless at half-time, and given West Brom have been level at the break in eight of their most recent 12 fixtures, coupled with Burnley having lost the first period only once in their last eight, we think draw/Burnley in the half-time/full-time market looks hugely attractive at 10.0. Furthermore, West Brom have only managed to win twice in their last 11 where the first half was drawn.
The Clarets enjoyed a good result last time out as well, snatching all three points against Crystal Palace at the death, and they look far better equipped for survival this time around, sitting comfortably in 9th place. On the road Burnley’s last 11 matches have featured at least three goals on nine occasions, whilst both teams have scored in six of West Brom’s last seven matches. We think predicting the amount of goals in this one is a tough one to call given these sides can quite often play reactive football, but we do like the look of Burnley (draw no bet). West Brom’s home form and record against promoted sides under Pulis put us off them, but the draw no bet protects us from a stalemate should the game be too negative.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
