Championship Betting Tips For Today, Friday 17th May

Welcome to our Championship Tips Page! Today, we focus on the highly anticipated clash between Southampton and West Bromwich Albion in the Championship playoff semi-final second leg. This match is set to kick off at 8:00 pm on Friday, 17th May, at St Mary’s Stadium.

Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions

By Gram Dodd – May 17, 2024

Match Preview
Southampton and West Brom are vying for a spot in the Championship playoff final. After a goalless draw in the first leg at the Hawthorns, both teams will be determined to secure victory. Southampton have the home advantage, having scored in all but one of their last 12 home games. However, their defence has been less reliable, with only one clean sheet in their last nine home fixtures. Adam Armstrong, with 21 goals this season, is crucial to their attack.

West Brom have struggled away from home, winning just two of their last 12 away matches. They will need to overcome this poor form to have any chance of progressing to the final.

Key Areas and Player Duels

Our experts highlight the midfield battle as a crucial area, with Southampton’s Will Smallbone and Joe Aribo looking to control the game. Meanwhile, West Brom’s Alex Mowatt and Okay Yokuslu will aim to disrupt Southampton’s rhythm and launch counter-attacks. The duel between Southampton’s Adam Armstrong and West Brom’s Semi Ajayi will be pivotal.

Betting Tips

  • Best Bet – Over 2.5 Goals: Given Southampton’s strong home scoring record and West Brom’s defensive vulnerabilities.
  • Both Teams to Score: Both teams have attacking strengths and defensive weaknesses, making this a likely outcome.
  • Home Win: Southampton’s strong home form gives them an edge.
