West Brom vs Wolves: Baggies to complete derby double

Kick-off: 1800, 03/05/2021

Stadium: The Hawthorns

TV: Sky Sports

Sam Allardyce’s West Brom are not going down without a fight and look good value to claim another Premier League win when entertaining Wolves on Monday evening.

The Baggies are chasing a Black Country derby double after prevailing 3-2 at Molineux in January and do not deserve to be underdogs on current form.

We reckon 21/10 for Albion to oblige is very generous and a home win is our first West Brom vs Wolves prediction.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds

West Brom’s hopes of a great escape were rocked by a 3-0 loss at Leicester but they regrouped to draw 2-2 in an entertaining encounter at Aston Villa.

Matheus Pereira’s penalty and a Tyrone Mings own goal saw Albion recover from Anwar El Ghazi’s spot-kick opener.

However, having returned from the international break with impressive victories over Chelsea and Southampton, they were denied a third victory in four outings by Keinan Davis’ stoppage-time leveller.

Defender Darnell Furlong told the club website: “Everyone can see how much we’re fighting right now and that’s not going to stop.

“We’ve got a big game against Wolves next, so all we can do is recover from this and be ready to go again.

“If we continue showing fight like this, then there’s definitely still a chance for us…if we play how we did against Villa, then we’re going to get results.”

Brazilian playmaker Pereira has been a real bright spot for the Baggies this term, netting twice from the spot in the Molineux triumph among his 10 goals.

Looking at the West Brom vs Wolves odds, Pereira appeals at 9/2 to break the deadlock here.

Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Furlong, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, Gallagher, Maitland-Niles, Yokuslu, Robinson, Pereira, Diagne.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves recently managed to scrape 1-0 wins over two other members of the bottom three when edging out Fulham and Sheffield United.

However, they put in a performance littered with errors and lethargy when allowing Burnley to ease away from the drop zone with a 4-0 triumph in the Midlands.

Nuno Espirito Santo refused to put the below-par display down to a bad attitude from his players.

He said: “I will not judge the attitude of my players by relaxation, it was more the inability to play good.

“It was about not making the right decision. As mistakes increased, we were not able to settle down and play the game as we play.

“I am disappointed with many things generally, but how we defended set-pieces was particularly poor.”

Wolves may be more focused for this derby clash, but whether they can match the hunger and desire of their local rivals is debatable.

Let’s finish off our West Brom vs Wolves betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 2-1 home win.

Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Ait Nouri, Boly, Coady, Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Podence, Saiss, Jose, Traore.
