Preston vs West Brom: Our top betting tips

West Brom have seen their winless run extended to seven over the weekend. Will they break that run here or does more misery await? Find out with our Preston vs West Brom match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

The sides will cancel one another out

These two sides are both in rather poor form right now with just three wins between them across the last 20 combined fixtures; with that firmly in mind we see this match ending level. Preston have won two of their past 10 drawing five matches whilst West Brom have won just one of their last 10, again, with five draws in that period. With the last three head to head matches fading as one Preston win, one West Brom win and a draw there really is next to nothing to separate these sides!

Don't bank on goals

Our next prediction for this match is that we'll see a low scoring match. Preston, who have the lowest goals per game average in the entire league, have seen each of their last five matches go under the 2.5 mark. West Brom meanwhile have seen three of their last five fall south of the all important 2.5 cut off. On top of that, each of the last four head to head clashes between these sides have come in under the 2.5 marker. With all that considered, a high scoring match is unlikely!

Can Baggies keep Bruce in a job?

Neither of these sides are in very good form right now but there is significantly more pressure on Baggies boss Steve Bruce. A win here would perhaps give those West Brom draws a slightly different feel but, should Preston win, Bruce might be out of a job.

Preston fans are yet to experience a home win this season and they might not get many better chances than this. Not only are West Brom in poor form but they themselves have no injury worries ahead of the game. If that can't see them to victory at Deepdale then you wonder when they will finally chalk up the long overdue three points!

Preston Predicted lineup – Woodman, Storey, Lindsay, Cunningham, Fernandez, Ledson, Whiteman, Browne, Brady, Evans, Riis

West Brom boss Bruce is facing the chop after a very poor start. If he's to get the win to keep his job then he'll have to do so without Daryl Dike and Semi Ajayi. With that noted, it's also worth pouring some pressure on his players; whatever your thoughts on Bruce as a manager, this West Brom squad has more than enough talent in it to win games in the Championship.

West Brom Predicted lineup – Button, Furlong, O'Shea, Townsend, Pieters, Livermore, Rogic, Wallace, Swift, Diangana, Asante
