Blackpool vs West Bromwich Prediction for Championship

On the 18th of April, we have Blackpool going up against West Bromwich Albion at Bloomfield Road. After you’re done with our superior Blackpool vs West Bromwich betting tips, you might want to check out our remaining Championship predictions.

West Bromwich to Win

The promotion ambitions are long gone but this doesn’t mean that coach Carlos Corberan won’t do what’s necessary to get the full set of points on Tuesday. The head-to-head data can certainly back up our top Blackpool vs West Bromwich prediction here as the visitors can be considered a nightmare for the Tangerines.

The last 10 matches between the two sides ended with seven victories, two draws, and barely one Blackpool win. That’s certainly not what you want to hear as a manager ahead of the game and we’re sure that coach Stephen Dobbie is trembling in fear ahead of the kick-off.

BTTS

One thing you can say with conviction about this rivalry is that it’s definitely no snooze-fest. Eight of the last 10 games alone ended with both teams scoring. On numerous occasions, the two sides exchanged more than two goals per game.

Considering it’s the end of the season and Blackpool are in a vicious survival battle with the likes of Wigan, Reading, and Cardiff, we’re sure that coach Stephen Debbie’s boys will go all-out in search of goals. And that’s a solid foundation stone for our key Blackpool vs West Bromwich predictions.

Blackpool odds: 13/5 (3.60) – 24.0%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 25.0%

West Bromwich are the bookies’ expected winner for Tuesday’s game at 13/5 (3.60) with their win probability currently reaching 51.0%. It would take one hell of a push from Blackpool to get the three points or even a draw out of this showdown as the bookies predict barely a 1.0% difference between the two outcomes.

Blackpool vs West Bromwich Lineups & Team News

Blackpool

Wigan Athletic were left shellshocked on the 15th of April when the game at Bloomfield Road ended with a thrifty 1-0 victory in favor of coach Stephen Dobbie’s boys. What was most surprising about that showdown was Jerry Yates’ 2nd-minute stunner. For the next 88 minutes, Wigan Athletic simply couldn’t get back into the game and the match ended with a comfortable 1-0 victory for the home team.

Predicted lineup – Grimshaw (GK), Lyons, Nelson, Thorniley, Husband, Bowler, Fiorini, Anderson, Poveda, Yates & Rogers

West Bromwich

On the 15th of April, West Bromwich were surprisingly trailing by one goal at Bet365 Stadium on the stroke of halftime. Jason Molumby took matters into his own hands and a lovely brace by the 23-year-old Irish proved decisive as West Bromwich poached a come-from-behind 1-2 victory. We’re sure we’ll get to see more of the same from Molumby, which is a massive boost to our Blackpool vs West Bromwich predictions.

Predicted lineup – Palmer (GK), Townsend, Pieters, Ajayi, Furlong, Molumby, Wallace, Swift, Chalobah, Thomas-Asante & Dike

Player to Watch: Daryl Dike

West Bromwich’s key goalscorer this season is named Daryl Dike. The 22-year-old American has been soaring high this season and he’s undoubtedly a key reason behind our Blackpool vs West Bromwich predictions.

With seven goals to his name in the 2022/23 campaign, Daryl has earned coach Carlos Corberan’s trust and we’re sure that should he remain at the Hawthorns next season, he’ll be a firm starter for the Baggies.
