Match Preview & Team News

West Bromwich Albion vs Stoke City predictions and betting tips ahead of this match in the Championship on Monday night. Can the Baggies continue their march towards promotion with a win over Stoke at the Hawthorns? Read all our free Championship betting tips and predictions below. 

West Brom keen to consolidate top spot

Title-chasing West Brom will try to strengthen their leadership in the Championship table with a positive result against struggling Stoke City on Monday night. 

To secure a direct promotion to the Premier League. West Brom will have to minimise their errors, as boss Slaven Bilic said. The Baggies were able to regain their place at the top of the English second-tier last weekend, even if they were only able to get a 2-2 draw against out of form Charlton. Overall, Slaven Bilic’s men were dominant yet conceded to their opponents’ goals from set-piece. 

That draw means that WBA are coming into this Monday’s clash without a win in their last five league games, with four draws and one defeat. This disappointing run has seen the gap between them and the playoff places reduced from 12 points to only 5. Coach Bilic has urged his players to keep their focus on the last 18 games of this campaign. 

West Brom will have back defender Nathan Ferguson and Grady Diangana for this Hawthorns clash, but Kieran Gibbs, Rekeem Harper and Jack Fitzwater will all be missing. 

Stoke are involved in the relegation battle

Stoke are coming to the Midlands on the back of a 0-0 draw against Millwall. Michael O’Neill’s men tried what they could to get past the Lions defence but couldn’t do so even if they enjoyed possession and territory stakes. The Potters ended the match with four strikers in the hope to find a later winner but without success. That result has left Stoke in the relegation zone, and skipper Ryan Shawcross is likely to miss Monday night’s clash due to injury. 

West Brom have good recent record against the Potters

West Brom, who can be backed at 5/6 to win, will be confident that they can win their fourth match in a row against Stoke. Pressure is starting to rise for the shaky Championship leaders after they have only managed a single success in seven league matches since mid-December. Bilic’s side main problems has been at the back as they looked vulnerable from crosses and set-pieces. 

Stoke are the 10/3 underdogs and will be looking to cause an upset and record back-to-back consecutive wins for the first time since October 2015. The first win was a thrilling 5-2 success away to Huddersfield on New Year’s Day. If we do exclude meetings with bottom-four strugglers City have only registered one win and nine defeats in the 11 matches as visitors this term. 

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

We believe West Brom will be back to winning ways in front of their fans. Despite their defensive issues will not be resolved from one game to another, they have enough firepower to kick-start again their promotion bid. Stoke have what it takes to score a goal tough and backing WBA to win, and Both Teams To Score looks a decent shout at 11/4. In the correct score, we are backing West Brom to win 3-2.

Goals Market Prediction

A stunning 54% of the matches involving West Brom have ended with Over 3.50 goals. Five of those have produced at least five goals. Stoke have scored more goals on the road under Michael O’Neill in just 6 matches compared with the 17 encounters under Nathan Jones. We expect an open and goal-rich affair so backing the Over 2.50 looks the way to go.
