Baggies to lead at HT and FT
We were going to make the prediction of West Brom to win this game but the odds are not exactly exciting; instead of steering clear of backing a winner completely, we've gone for the hosts to be leading at HT and FT. Yes, they've only won two of their last 10 games but there is way more quality at West Brom than their is at Peterborough. By the way, their form is a joke of late too. They have also managed just two wins in 10 but whist the Baggies have managed five draws, the Posh have lost six of their past 10. Their head to head record against West Brom is poor too; they last beat them in 1994.
We'll see goals
Our next prediction is that we'll see at least three goals in this match hence the over 2.5 total goal prediction. We've already express that we fancy West Brom to run out winners but they're facing a Peterborough side that have scored in each of their last four games with every one of those matches surpassing the 2.5 cut off. The last five head to head meetings have also averaged above 2.5 goals at 2.8 per game meaning the only stat based doubt is West Brom's recent form, which has seen each of their last five fall under 2.5. We're not too worried about that though; it just gives the odds better value.

West Brom Predicted Lineup
